Charles is a medals cheat who should have been well satisfied with his five legitimate medals.

 

There is currently a team of veterans scrutinizing media and finding many who are cheating with the RVCM.

 

If you do not meet the criterion for this medal do not wear it. It is a criminal offence to do so, with a maximum penalty of $3,300 fine or six months imprisonment or both.

 

Bernard Colin Charles created a false history regarding his medals entitlement and now we have corrected the falsehood.
