Markovic UPDATE 21 Apr 17

Go to the bottom of this page to see the latest update


 WARNINGbeware of Goran Markovic, a Serbian born Australian citizen, from Lalor Park  NSW who is now roaming Europe.  He is a relentless con man, liar and wannabe with no conscience.  Saying he has the morals of a pig is insulting pigs.  He targets vulnerable people and like a pig hunting truffles, he is relentlessly.  He applies charm and hard luck stories until he has exhausted his victims money supply.  It is known that he works on multiple "victims" at the same time.

Markovic is an Australian Citizen who does his dirty work in Europe, mainly in France but also in Belgium, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, and Serbia.  He falsely claims to be:

A Colonel in the Royal Australian Air Force. (RAAF)

A Group Captain in the RAAF

A Pilot in the Australian Flying Doctor Service

An Officer of the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO)

An Officer of Australian Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS)

Interpol Taskforce Commander

Interpol Crime Squad Head Australian Bureau of Interpol.

A Pilot with New South Wales Civil Aviation Authority. (CAA)

Adrian Basile and has a fake passport in that name.

Guy Matthews.

Kelly  xxxxxxxxx

He often uses the rank of Colonel during introductions and conversations. The idiot does not know that the RAAF does not have "Colonels".  He  also fails to understand that the Civil Aviation Authority is a National Organisation and not a NSW State Authority. Below are  examples of his tools of deceit.

Falsely using rank of Colonel, endorsed on the bottom of a fake air ticket he used in one of his scams.

False Australian Driving Licence:

False Australian Civil Aviation Card

From false media reports

Unfortunately his innocent and vulnerable targets are "everyday" honest trusting people who are charmed  by his false claims and demeanour.

Here is an example of his modus operandi from a recent victim, who was an Australian travelling in Europe:

"I was travelling alone in Europe last year and staying at a hostel in Florence, Italy in April when Goran Markovic turned up saying he had all his documents, passport etc stolen. I helped him out by letting his mum send money to my passport and then giving him the money.

He showed me a police report from the Italian police. He then started telling me that he works as an Interpol Investigator.    

He  told me he works on and off for ASIO/ASIS doing regular secret assignments. He also said he worked as a pilot for the NSW Civil Aviation Authority and had been a pilot in the Australian Air force in which he reached the rank of Colonel. He often used the title Colonel when talking with people.

He  said he fought in the Serbian/Bosnian war and had a lot of Australian military experience.

We travelled for about 10 days together as friends as he had convinced me that he was a devoted partner and father, was committed to putting criminals in jail and basically seemed like a decent and good person. At the end of the 10 days when I was going to leave, he showed me papers from NATO in which he had been activated for duty in relation to the Ukrainian conflict

I gave him my car until I could organize something else (it's a UK car). He now has that (stolen as well) in addition to the $120,000 he stole from my family and I."

He  has been using my identity to stay at hotels in Europe (often not paying for the bill). He is using my name on emails to potential victims, see below:

Everywhere he goes he tells similar stories about being in the Australian Air Force etc

We know he is somewhere in France trying to find another victim.

We have a list of four others who have been similarly conned by Markovic.

Markovic is a constant conman forever on the prowl. He has  well set up files and false documents to support  his  stories, and usually starts with a story of how he has had  his Money and documents stolen, then begs for a small amount of money. He then ingratiates himself into the life of his target and gradually relieves them of larger amounts of money. 

If you know anything of this Psychopathic Australian Ambassador of evil please let us know so that we can contribute to his demise.

Markovic defames the integrity of Australian RAAF Officers and we hope his inclusion on our web site helps to bring him to justice.



Markovic UPDATE 21 Apr 17

Markovic slunk back into Australia and went into hiding in South Australia. His criminality had caught up with him in Europe and he made a run for home.

Markovic had fled from Australia Fourteen years ago. Before scuttling off to Europe he had been convicted of more than ninety crimes in Australia and was facing further serious charges.

See this:

The long arm of the law new he was back in Australia and this fake "ASIO" operative aka fake RAAF "Colonel" was soon located by Police and arrested.

 Markovic 1 2017 04 08

Markovic is a despicable human being who has chosen a life of petty crime at which he has not been very successful. Let's hope that the four Warrants relating to his criminality before fleeing from Australia Fourteen years ago give him some time to reflect on his iniquitous life style whilst looking through Prison bars.

Welcome back Markovic you are an immoral, callous fraud and have hurt many innocent and generous people. Claims of being a retired senior RAAF Officer have bought the Australian Veteran Community into disrepute.

Case Notes:



Philip J Lawrence is the worst kind of Wannabe. He decided to elevate himself from the mundane, but respected Army occupation of Cook, to that of a person who completed heroic service in various areas of conflict.

LawrenceP 1 2017 04 08


LawrenceP 2 2017 04 08

Here is what he said in a Facebook entry to support the authenticity of the medals he wears:

"I was in S/E ASIA, Middle East and Africa in the late 70's early 80's. Was with Intel Op (Intelligence Operations). Done time in 8/9, 5/7 and 4 over different periods. Can't say much more." (The reference above to 8/9, 5/7 and 4 means Infantry Battalions in the Royal Australian Regiment.)

Below is a close up of the medals displayed on his Facebook account that he wore to the Laurieton NSW RSL on Remembrance Day 2016 and to a meeting at the RSL on 22 Jan 2017.

LawrenceP 3 2017 04 08

The first medal riband is for the Medal of Gallantry.

Medal of Gallantry (MG) is a military decoration awarded to personnel of the Australian Defence Force. It recognises acts of gallantry in action in hazardous
circumstances. The MG was introduced on 15 January 1991, replacing the Imperial equivalent. It is ranked third in the Gallantry Decorations in the Australia.
Recipients of the Medal of Gallantry are entitled to use the post-nominal letters "MG". Since its inception 55 awards have been made.

Lawrence 4 2017 04 08

If you look at Lawrence's rack of medals you will notice that this "dill" has mounted the Medal of Gallantry riband upside down, in that the "V" shapes point down instead of up.

Lawrence also wears the:

Returned from Active Service Badge (RASB) and the coveted Infantry Combat Badge (ICB).

Lawrence 5 2017 04 08

Had he been a genuine returned Veteran he would have known that the RASB is never worn when medals or ribands are worn. It is presented to Returned Service people for wearing with civilian attire when medals are not appropriate.

The ICB requires the following service:

Who is entitled to wear the ICB?

Members of the Royal Australian Infantry Corps who, in an infantry posting as part of an Infantry Battalion were deployed for, at least, 90 days to an operational area and
subsequently awarded the Infantry Combat Badge.

Lawrence has never served as an Infantry Soldier or been in any operational areas and is not entitled to either Badge.

The other fake medals are:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)
Australian Service Medal (ASM)
Australian Defence Medal (ADM)
United Nations Advance in Cambodia (UNAMIC)
United Nations Truce Supervision organisation (UNSTO)
United Nations Transitional Group (UNTAG)

His actual service was for around three years. He was trained as, and worked as a Cook in the Australian Army Catering Corps. On 17 August 1981 he was discharged for misconduct. His rank on discharge was Private Soldier. Here is his Discharge Certificate:

Lawrence Dischargecert

Lawrence joined the good men at the Laurieton NSW Sub Branch of the Returned and Services League (RSL). He completed the usual Application for Membership and was accepted, until on Remembrance Day 2016, and again at a Meeting on 22 January 2017 he wore "his" medals to the RSL.  On the 19 February 2017 this resulted in a written request to Lawrence for an explanation of an apparent anomaly. Here is the email:

"To Mr. PJ Lawerence, (sic)
On checking your enlistment and discharge information provided on your application for service membership to Laurieton RSL Sub Branch it is noticed that your length of service does not agree with the service ribbons you displayed on your jacket at the monthly meeting on 22nd January 2017, nor does it agree with the medals you wore on Remembrance Day 2016.

State Branch have advised that it is the Sub Branch responsibility to investigate if you have other service in the military forces not disclosed which would clarify the above abnormality. Please advise by return email or visit/phone 65566166 on Thursday morning between 0900hrs to 1200 hrs."

On 20 February 2017 the Laurieton RSL received the following email from Lawrence:

"From: Phil Lawrence [mailto:
Sent: Monday, 20 February 2017 10:35 AM
To: Laurieton RSL
Subject: Re: annual return of member details 2016

Dear Sir,

This email is to inform you that after several incidents at the L.U.S.C. I would appreciate that my membership of the Laurieton RSL Sub Branch be made null and void. I have destroyed my membership card for the RSL Sub Branch along with my membership card for the L.U.S.C. I am returning home to my family in Queensland as I no longer have employment in NSW.
(Note: L.U.S.C. refers to the Laurieton United Services Club)

After intensive investigation ANZMI contacted Lawrence to get his side of the allegations. After two phone calls he fell on his sword and admitted to his deception, he gave no explanation for his audacious behaviour, but did say that he was ready to submit to whatever legal action that may follow.

Lawrence has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903, Part VII, Sections 80A and 80B.

80A. Falsely representing to be returned soldier, sailor or airman
80B. Improper use of service decorations.

Both these offence carry maximum penalties of $3,300 fines or six months imprisonment or both. Many Wannabes have been dealt with by State Magistrates Courts in relation to these offences.

The Port Macquarie State Police were notified and expressed interest in the matter. Should charges be laid we will update this entry.

We have been working with Australian and New Zealand Veterans, State Police Forces, Media and the general public for many years, and can assure Wannabes that persons indulging in Veteran related fraud will most likely to be reported to us, and if appropriate given maximum exposure of this website and through various agencies.

Lawrence's offence is very serious. He had the audacity to wear the third highest Australian Bravery Award along with seven other false medals and two false badges, when in fact he served as a Cook and was never deployed overseas to any area of conflict.

He has been given prime space on this website and will remain ensconced so that his posterity will know the true nature of his Defence Service.

Case Notes:



The worst kind of wannabes are those who claim Special Forces heroic service. They also blame their bad social behaviour on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) resulting from their "operational war service". Jaydon P Blanch also known as A.C Blanch and Jaydon Thompson is such a person.

Blanch1 2017 04 08

Blanch2 2017 04 08

Notice in the left hand photograph Blanch is wearing a Medal Riband Bar on his lapel. The Riband Bar is for the Australian Afghanistan Medal - Operation Slipper. The second photograph is also of Blanch but he has named himself Jay Thompson.

Blanch3 2017 04 08

Blanch4 2017 04 08

We have Statutory Declarations from people who have stated:

"Jaydon said he was in the Australian Forces and:

Was often away overseas for long periods of time on tours. In 2013 he claimed to have completed six tours in Afghanistan and in more recent times claims nine tours

He said he was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) .

He claims he had previously served as a Pilot in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) until his eyesight became bad and moved to SASR as a Sniper, where he stayed for Eighteen years.

He said he suffered badly from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and was shot twice in Afghanistan

Was discharged in 2013 and is waiting for a large payout".

Below is an excerpt from his Facebook page where he uses the name Jay Thompson.

Blanch5 2017 04 08

Notice he tells about his "tours in combat" and he is thinking of his friends who fell along the way.

We phoned Blanch on the 3rd February 2017 and he denied ever having mentioned to any person that he had served in Afghanistan with SASR. He said he served in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) for a very short time during 1993 and 1994. In the above insert he say his father served in Vietnam. He was asked what his father's name was, and he said William HAIG. No person with that name served in Vietnam.

Blanch explained the Facebook entry (shown above) by saying that someone had hacked his account and written the lies about his service history.

He is currently operating a model train business using the name of Jay Thompson.

Blanch6 2017 04 08

We can find no trace of Jaydon Blanch or Jay Thompson ever having served in the Australian Defence Force. He may have served for a very short time in the RAN, but by his own admission never served in the RAAF or the Army with SASR.

Regarding his false claims of expecting a "large payout" for his Army service. He has "conned" people for loans, using the non existent expected "Large Payout" as collateral.

Blanch was advised to complete a Statutory Declaration denying what others have said in Statutory Declarations. He was advised that his Statutory Declaration would be sent to Federal Police with the view of establishing whether he has made a false declaration. He has not responded.

In his house he has an engraved glass plaque from "his unit" SASR, commemorating his Eighteen years of service. His rank engraved on the plaque is "Lt Colonel". We have spoken to the proprietor of the shop that supplied the plaque, and established that the plaque was ordered, purchased and paid for by Jaydon P Blanch.

Like all "PTSD wracked" lying wannabes, Blanch uses his false service to charm vulnerable people and con them into providing him with money.

Blanch is a pathological liar who now joins many of his ilk on our website. We will also report his deceit to NSW State Police. We welcome him to our Hall of Shame where he will stay for many years so that any person typing his name into an Internet Search Engines will be aware of his true nature.

Service: RAN
Branch: Junior Seaman
Commencement of service: 03 Jan 67
Completion of service: 21 Nov 68
Case Notes:



Barry Gregory Blackwood received succour from the Judge who heard his criminal charges in the Cairns District Court. The Judge obviously believed that Blackwood suffers from the distress of "fighting in Vietnam". Here is the media report.

Blackwood 1 2017 02 10 3

Blackwood 2 2017 02 10 3

Blackwood 3 2017 02 10 3 

Notice the comments made by the Judge Morzone about Blackwood being a damaged war veteran. The Judge obviously understands the problems that are often faced by genuine Veterans who have served in war zones. Blackwood has dishonestly misled the Court regarding his "trip" to Vietnam to the point we believe he has Perverted the Course of Justice.

The Judge's words would have one believe that Blackwood was a damaged "Battle hardened" Veteran of the Vietnam War. The truth is that Blackwood spent only six hours at anchor in the peaceful Vung Tau Harbour aboard HMAS Parramatta. HMAS Parramatta dropped anchor at 0700 hours on the 9 April 1968 and weighed anchor at 1300 hours on the same day. Like most other days, there was no war like activity, in or around Vung Tau on the 9 April 1968.   Here are extracts from the ship's Report of Proceedings for that day.

 Blackwood 4 2017 02 10 3

The full report dated 3rd May 1968 can be found here:

Blackwood had a less than illustrious Navy career. He joined as a Junior Seaman in 1967 and was discharged as being unsuitable in 1968. Here is an extract from his Navy Service Record

Blackwood 5 2017 02 10 3

The Vietnam Nominal Roll shows him as being in Vietnam from 5 April 1968 to 17 April 1968. Twelve days. That information is misleading and results from a system invented by the RAN at the time. It is actually the time departing Singapore until returning to Singapore.

Blackwood 6 2017 02 10 3 


This system has resulted in hundreds of Navy personnel being wrongly awarded the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. That medal requires One Hundred and Eighty days in Vietnam waters. The ships that were on the Vietnam Gunline are listed as having been in Vietnam for that period, but none of them were, because every now and then they departed the Gunline and sailed off to other countries for leave or repairs. The whole issue is such a shemozzle that neither the RAN nor Honours and Awards are prepared to address the matter.

Blackwood is not a PTSD wracked veteran of the Vietnam war as depicted by the Judge who had obviously been misled. He spent Six hours in the Vung Tau Harbour with no enemy activity whatsoever and would have enjoyed the comforts of HMAS Parramatta.  

The Judge said "You saw and did things which, like so many others, has resulted in Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and like so many others in your situation have turned to drinking to cope with the demons that endure from that experience"  In fact Blackwood saw nothing and endured nothing from the Vietnam war, he is a liar, fraud and should not have been given leniency for his behaviour.

Blackwood was an unsatisfactory sailor and, since his discharge, has been an unsatisfactory citizen, with a number of serious convictions. The Veteran community do not want him, and we urge the Cairns Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) to charge him for 'Perverting the Course of Justice', with the hope of his serving the full 18 month prison sentence, that he was awarded.

Unfortunately we have not be able to locate a photograph of Blackwood and if any reader can help it will be much appreciated by Veterans of Australia and New Zealand.

In the meantime we sentence him to a place on our website where he will remain for a very long time.

“Major General” Neville McBryde Donohue– Major General and Collingwood Supporter

Every now and then an incredibly stupid wannabe will bob his head up and be spotted by genuine Veterans.

  In this case the “head bobber” is “Major General” Neville Donohue from the picturesque Dandenong Ranges in Victoria.  Here is our man in all his “Generalship” glory:



Never before in the history of ANZMI have so many reports been sent, by so many, to so few (of us). Veteran forums and networks went viral and the above photograph taken at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) on ANZAC Day 2013 was flashed all over Australia. The power of the internet prevailed and another and more interesting photograph arrived identifying Donohue.



In this photograph, Donohue is seen giving a stirring ANZAC Day 2013 speech at St Michaels Church, Kalorama in Victoria, before heading off to the MCG, ANZAC Day Football match, between Essendon and Collingwood, where he paraded his mighty haul of fake medals.

Who is Major General Donohue? Of course any person who barracks for Collingwood football club has to be a bit suspicious, but being a Collingwood Supporter and wearing a huge array of fake Military medals and claiming to be a Major General confirms that he is less than a balanced person.

We are reliably advised by ex members of the Royal Australian Corps of Signals (RA Sigs) that the “General” is in fact ex Serviceman313847 Corporal Neville McBryde Donohue from the Kilsyth area of Victoria. He served in the Australian Army between 1970 and 1976 and was never deployed to any Operational Areas. He has confessed that most of the medals are fakes but says his Vietnam Medals are genuine. That is a lie. He may be entitled to only one medal the Australian Defence Medal (ADM). Perhaps it is just as well, that we have exposed him, as we all know the case of a Corporal becoming a Fuhrer.

This case incited even more interest from the Australian Veteran Community than the Hines Brothers seen here:   

Like the Hines Brothers case, State Police were quick to swoop on Donohue and lay appropriate charges.

The Australian and New Zealand Veteran community are more than ever before, sensitive to frauds, wannabes and medals cheats. Those who take liberties are gambling that they will not be caught and named and shamed on our web site. In this gamble the odds are well stacked in favour of ANZMI. So go ahead make our day.

Donohue will have his day in court.

We will track him and report his disposition.



After four years of lies, deceit and denial Donohue has been found guilty in a Melbourne Magistrates Court and earned a little prison time.  Even so, the idiot has appealed his conviction:  Here is the Newspaper coverage:


Donohue UP 1

Donohue UP 2

Donohue UP 3

Donohue UP 4

We can see that the Magistrate got it all correct.  It is unfortunate that Donohue is still exercising his initiative by lodging an appeal.  Let's hope that he is given a harsher sentence as a result of the appeal.


This is published in the public interest, particularly that of the Vietnam Veteran Community. All information presented here is fact and the truth. Reports from private citizens are supported by statements of fact and statutory declarations.

Case Notes:


Rick Kryza, or Doctor Rick Kryza as he likes to be known is a military fraud, a wannabee, a medal cheat and a false pretender.

He is a Patron member of the Gay Polo Club in the USA and likes to fraudulently dress in Australian military uniforms with medals and ribbons, to impress his inner circle of male friends.


Kryza was born in Rhodesia in 1959, to an Australian father and American mother. They later moved to the rural township of Griffith in the State of New South Wales, Australia.

Kryza appears to be a versatile wannabee with claimed military service in -;

1. The Royal Australian Air Force as a Group Captain, Pilot. Six months service in Iraq and six months service in Afghanistan.

2. The Australian Army as a Captain, with Iraq and Afghanistan active service.

3. The Royal Australian Navy as a Captain,

4 The British Army as a Captain.

In the above photograph, Kryza is wearing a Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) uniform with the rank of Group Captain. He also wears purchased Pilots wings above his purchased replica medals.

The non awarded medals he wears in this photograph are -;

1, The Rhodesian Medal. (For 30 days service in Rhodesia before Independence - December 1979 - March 1980.) Not entitled.
2. General Service Medal 1962. (Awarded for various campaigns) Not entitled.
3. South Atlantic Medal with Rosette.(For service in the Falklands War) Not entitled.
4. The British Golden Jubilee Medal created 2002. (Not awarded or listed on "It's an Honour".) Not entitled.
5. The Queens Diamond Jubilee Medal, created 2012. (Not awarded and not listed on "It's an Honour".) Not entitled.

In respect to the RAAF uniform that he is wearing, the following irregularities are present -;

a) He is wearing an RAAF uniform plain blue shirt that was superseded about twenty five years ago.

b) The aiguillette (lanyard) is not worn by Group Captain rank, unless they were an Aide De Camp (ADC) to the Governor. Kryza would not qualify even if his claim was genuine.

c) The waist sash is also not worn by Officers of his claimed rank of Group Captain. He is two ranks short to qualify for wearing this uniform item.



The above photograph is Kryza wearing an RAAF shirt, with the rank of Group Captain and the word Australia on his epaulettes. He also wears Pilot's wings.

He wears the following medal ribbons -;

Top Row.
1. Australia Defence Medal ribbon. Not entitled.
2. Rhodesia Medal ribbon. (upside down) Not entitled.
3. Australian Service Medal ribbon. Not entitled.
4. Unknown. Not entitled.

Not knowing medals protocols, Kryza has mounted these top row ribbons incorrectly. If genuine, the Australian Service Medal ribbon would be mounted first, followed by the Rhodesian medal ribbon, (correctly mounted and not upside down), then the Australian Defence Medal ribbon. We are unable to identify the last medal but assume it is a tin.

2nd Row.
5. General Service medal ribbon. Not entitled.
6. South Atlantic medal ribbon with Rosette. Not entitled.
7. The British Golden Jubilee medal ribbon. Not entitled.
8. The Queens Diamond Jubilee medal ribbon. Not entitled.

Kryza has never served in the RAAF or the RAF and his claims are lies.

Kryza2jpg 2017 03 01

In the above photograph, Kryza is wearing an Australian Army uniform with the rank of Captain.

The unearned ribbons that he wears on this uniform are -;

The Australian Active Service Medal. (AASM) Not entitled.
The Afghanistan medal. Not entitled.
The Iraq medal. Not entitled.
The NATO International Assistance Security Force Medal. (ISAF medal) Not entitled.


The above photograph is Kryza wearing an Australian Army uniform with the rank of Captain, but different unearned ribbons.

1. Afghanistan Medal ribbon. Not entitled.
2. Australian Defence Medal ribbon. Not entitled.
3. Rhodesian Medal ribbon.(Mounted incorrectly - upside down), Not entitled.
4. Australian Service Medal ribbon. Not entitled.
5. Unknown medal ribbon. Not entitled.

A glaring irregularity in these photographs is his wearing of an observable white T shirt under the uniform shirt.

Kryza has never served in the Australian Army and these claims are also lies.


The above photograph is Kryza wearing a Royal Australian Navy (RAN) uniform with the rank of Captain.

Kryza has never served in the RAN and these claims are also lies.



In the above photographs Kryza is claiming Commissioned Officer rank in the British Military.

We are unable to identify the ribbons he wears in the top photograph, but that does not matter. He is not entitled to any of them.

In the second photo he is again wearing the following non awarded medals.-;

1. General Service Medal.
2. South Atlantic Medal with Rosette.
3. British Golden Jubilee Medal
4. Queens Diamond Jubilee Medal.

We have contacted our British counterparts and ascertained that his claims of British Military service claims are also lies.

We then contacted Kryza and invited him to provide details of his military service.

He stated that he was a Group Captain in the RAAF with six months service in Iraq and six months service in Afghanistan. He stated that he was also the owner of a sheep station in Griffith, New South Wales, Australia, but had to move to Painesville, Ohio when his mother took ill. He stated that he took leave from his military duties to take care of his mother. This is where he joined the United States Gay Polo Club as a Patron member. His Face Book page is littered with admiring male friends who lavishly praise his claims of military greatness and adoration for his conceited self display of photographs in various military uniforms.

He now claims that he returned to his sheep station ownership duties and the military. However, he informed us, that he has now been posted to the United Kingdom for six months with” Inter Commonwealth Military duties”. He also claims membership of the British Army.

Kryza has never laced up a military boot, in Australia or any other country.
We should all be grateful for that.

We subsequently invited him to explain his unique experience of being a Commissioned Officer in the three services of the Australian Defence Force, the Air Force, Navy and Army. His response is below -;

Rick Kryza
8:16 PM (1 hour ago)


When I attended military college for officer's training, since day one I made it known to my superiors that I wanted to learn all aspects of the Military Services. Even though I consider myself Royal Australian Air Force first (my first love is flying) I had to convince high ranking officers that having a knowledge in the navy and army is essential in the time of war or military conflicts. Thus, through special orders, I was able to see service in all branches. As you said, it is an unique situation, but one I thoroughly enjoy. Besides, my father was RAN, my grandfather was Light Horse. So, I was able to gain a little insight in military life at a young age.

I never did like how the different branches of the services had a natural dislike for each other. After all, the RAAF recruited members from the army and navy at it's formation. So, why not have an air force pilot learn aspects of the running a naval ship, or taking part in Iraq/Afghanistan as an RAR officer.

Hope this satisfies your inquiry.

Rather incredible that the RAAF would allow a fully trained pilot, in whom they have invested so much time, money and training, to transfer to the Royal Australian Navy and the Australian Army to further his knowledge about those two Services. In addition, also send him to Iraq and Afghanistan as an Australian Army Captain.

They could have just bought him a couple of books to read !!

Kryza is a ridiculous self conceited show pony who steals the valour of brave men and women who have served honourably in theatres of war. Particularly Iraq and Afghanistan. All this to impress his close circle of admiring male friends.

Kryza should be ashamed of himself for purchasing and wearing bemedalled Australian military uniforms for his own self- adulation, and his pursuit of military aggrandisement and attention.

The only people who wear the uniforms of multiple services are Royalty. Perhaps Queen like !

He has committed offences under the Australian Defence Act 1903, sections 80A and 80B, for falsely representing himself as a returned serviceman, and wearing non awarded medals and decorations. Penalty - 6 months imprisonment and/or $3000.00 fine.

In addition to his fraudulent behaviour by illegally claiming to be a returned Australian Serviceman, Kryza has also lied to all his friends on Face Book regarding his University of Sydney educational qualifications.


The above entry appears on his Face Book page. He also claims that he has completed a degree in Australia/Commonwealth Constitutional Law and Zoological Veterinary Medicine.  

See below -;


As a result, we made inquiries with the University of Sydney, to confirm or refute his claims. The result is detailed below -;
