Patricia Margaret Rice in her home town of Cessnock, New South Wales is known as Patrice Rhyce. she has added a bit of "Class" to her name and in the same way added a bit of "Class" to her medals rack. Below is a photograph of Rice on Anzac Day 2015 wearing lots of medals, badges, trinkets and a Peacekeepers Beret.

 

Here is another photograph of Rice on ANZAC Day 2014 wearing most of the false medals and badges she was wearing in 2015. We are reliably advised that she has been parading her false medals for many years.

The only medal that Rice would have, is the Australian Defence Medal. She served in the RAAF as a light transport Driver from April 1958 until June 1967. She is reported as being a competent Servicewoman who was promoted to Corporal during her service.

Here is a photograph of Rice on the day she enlisted:


Here is a letter from the Air Board who wrote her a letter of appreciation for her service after discharge.
 

We have been able to identify some of the medals and trinkets she is wearing. On the left Breast she is wearing four very prestigious awards, they are:

Royal Red Cross Medal - For exceptional service in Military Nursing.
Member of the Order of the British Empire. - For outstanding achievement or Service in the Community
Royal Red Cross medal - Same as above
Member of the Order of Australia (OAM) - For service worthy of particular recognition.

She also wears the:

Australian Defence Medal - For completing period of service in the Australian Defence Force.

Beneath the first row of medals there are Numerous United Nations Medals. We believe these to be:

1. U.N.T.S.O. (Truce Supervision Palestine/Israel, June 1948-Present)
2. U.N.E.F. II (Suez Canal and Sinai 1973-1979)
3. Golan Heights Medal
4. U.N.I.F.I.L. (Southern Lebanon 1978-Present
5. For service in the United Nations Headquarters
6. United Nations Korean War Medal
7. UNTSO medal again
8. Multinational force and observers medal.
9. UNTSO medal again

The Badges on the left lapel appear to be:

Caduceus Medical Pin.
Number two unsure
RAF wings
RAF Wings Sterling Silver Sweetheart Pin (with Kings Crown)
Army Parachute Wings
United Nations Button Badge
RSL Badge

We will not detail what she is wearing on her right breast, however we do note a Presidential Citation.

On her head she wears the Powder Blue Peacekeepers Beret with the International Peacekeepers Badge.

Rice is not listed on the Australian Government Nominal Rolls as having been awarded an OAM, nor is she entitled to wear any of the other medals, except for the Australian Defence Medal which is awarded to all people who complete their engagement in the Defence Force.

We are reliably advised that the Cessnock Returned Services League, (RSL) Sub Branch and the New South Wales (NSW) State Branch have been aware of Rice's behaviour for numerous years and have chosen to do nothing.

The NSW State Branch behaved similarly in relation to other fraudsters from NSW.

Major Andrew Philip Johnstone from Lismore was protected (unsuccessfully) by ex senior Defence officers and members of the RSL. See here:

RSL executive and long term imposter who appears to have escaped censure from the Cronulla RSL Sub Branch and the NSW State RSL for his multiple false claims of Vietnam RAN service is Kenneth Edward English from the Cronulla RSL Sub Branch (Sydney)

We don't know what motivates Rice to behave so badly and insult Veterans and ex Service persons who had to work hard to earn medals and awards. We condemn her as a shameless fraud, liar and wannabe and we also condemn the NSW RSL for knowingly allowing her to fraudulent present herself as a highly decorated Veteran.

 

UPDATE  Rice aka Rhyce 16 Jan 16

Ms Rice cannot believe that ANZMI would try to "bring down" her good name and would love to take us to court.   She said this on 11 Nov 2015 at a Remembrance Day Commemoration Service in Cessnock NSW.  Here is a photograph taken on that day.

Despite our initial exposure, Ms Rice is still decked out in lots of bling and it is interesting to note that she is not horsing around as she has added the  Companion of the Order of Australia to her stable.

When questioned about the Order she said "it was presented to my Mother".

When asked about the Presidential Citation on her right shoulder, she said  "it was personally presented to my father by the President of the United States".

She said about the parachute wings and the United Nations (UN) medals that she was given them after she left the RAAF, as she  was there as a nurse to the UN.  She also said that "she was not allowed to talk about her UN service".

This woman is clearly breaking the law and should be prosecuted by New South Wales (NSW) State Police, however NSW and Western Australia (WA) Police will not prosecute these offences.  Every other State and Territory of Australia would take action, but NSW and WA cannot be bothered.  Should those in positions of authority in those States earned genuine Defence Medals the hard way, then perhaps there would be a change of attitude.
