Clark R 1 2017 05 07


There are liars, medal cheats, valour thieves, and then we have Robert John Clark, who has managed the trifecta!

Clark has been on our radar for some time, thanks to those in military circles suspicious of this clown, who has appeared over recent years at both his local RSA (Kaukapakapa) and at a school in Takapuna in Auckland, New Zealand.

We have established that Clark served in the NZ Army in the early 1990’s, having never left NZ shores during that short period of service.

This hasn’t stopped Clark taken to wearing 13+ medals, to ANZAC parades and services, over recent years. And if that wasn’t sufficient, he carries, or wears, the highly honoured SAS (Special Air Service) beret at these occasions. But even this was not enough glory for Clark, who also tacked on his right chest, the US citation presented to the NZSAS by President George Bush, although, being the fool he is, Clark wore his upside down, which is the ultimate insult to those who served and actually earned this acclaimed citation!

Finally, Clark wears an NZSAS tie.

Clark never earned any of these medals or accoutrements!

Clark R 3

1. NZ OPERATIONAL SERVICE MEDAL
2. UN – UNPROFOR (FORMER YUGOSLAVIA)
3. UN – UNMIS (SUDAN) WITH CLASP

9. NZ – GSM (EAST TIMOR)
10. NZ – LS & GCM (ARMY) – NO BARS = service of between 15 and 29 years (Bar issued at 30yrs)

12. MULTINATIONAL FORCE & OBSERVERS - SINAI PENINSULA MEDAL – still a current mission
13. TIMOR LESTE (East Timor) SOLIDARITY MEDAL
14. On THE right chest - US NAVY Presidential Unit Citation

By his own admission, Clark bought these medals online (NZ$700 according to him), and admits he made the citation in a drunken session with a friend. He claims to have been gifted his military SAS tie and beret.

Clark R 2 2017 05 07


Clark says “he had spent years allowing people to think he had service with the NZSAS.” This, despite admitting that, although serving in the NZ Army in the early 90’s, he never once left NZ shores, or saw active service.

When questioned on this disgusting deception, Clark claimed that this year’s ANZAC service was the first occasion he had worn the medals, beret, tie and citation. ANZMI has received complaints from ex-servicemen who have witnessed Clark wear “his” tin and bluster at many previous ANZAC services over recent years.

But instead of owning his deception, when caught, Clark still chose to lie about the reason he has deceived his friends, family, fellow RSA members, and those who would be deceived by this shabby man.

Clark"s excuse for this deception? He stated that he presented himself as an NZSAS soldier as part of a cunning scheme to expose what he called profiteering from the sale of medals and military equipment online.

To add insult to injury, Clark then claims he had eventually intended to write a book about his experience as a medal cheat and valour thief.

Rob Clark, we will save you the bother.

Clark even admits his “stupidity” in an article in the NZ Herald on 1 May 2017 - There is a video and full admission in that article.
www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11848290 

NB. The act of wearing un-earned medals is a crime under the Military Decorations and Distinctive Badges Act 1918. The maximum $500 fine and/or up to one month in prison.

Clark will remain on this site in perpetuity as a reward as a medal cheat, valour thief, and liar.

Case Notes:

 

 

 

Leading Seaman Fane Stephanie Cokanauto is currently serving in the Royal Australian Navy. Cokanauto enlisted in 2005 and has been posted to various Shore Establishments and Ships of the RAN.

In 2009, Cokanauto was awarded the Australian Defence Medal for her service.

In the above photograph, Cokanauto is wearing the Australian Active Service Medal, the Iraq Medal and the Australian Defence Medal.

The Australian Active Service Medal was authorised in 1988 to recognise prescribed service in warlike operations. Cokanauto is also wearing the Iraq Medal which denotes qualifying military service in that theatre. Leading Seaman Cokanauto claims that she was awarded these medals for her service on HMAS Ballarat.

However, we are reliably informed that Cokanauto was posted to that ship when it returned to Sydney from it's active service deployment in the Middle East on the 1 September, 2006. The ship had 6 months active service accredited from March, 2006 until 1 September, 2006. This completed the Navy's 36th individual Ship deployment to Middle East service since 1990. Cokanauto was not a crew member on that deployment.

Unfortunately for Cokanauto, she has not been officially awarded with either medal.

Her only entitlement is the Australian Defence Medal. The other two have been purchased at a Medals Shop or on the internet.

We do not get pleasure out of exposing current serving Australian Defence Force men and women on this site for blatantly wearing medals/ribands that they have not earned. It always amazes us at Anzmi as to how a current member of any of our services can expect to get away with wearing purchased medals/ribands that have not been earned and awarded to them.

You only have to view our site regarding Lieutenant Commander Brian Stanley Ferrie, who was a current Naval Commissioned Officer teaching Recruits at HMAS Cerberus, the Naval Recruiting Establishment in Melbourne, Victoria. Ferrie for some considerable time was fraudulently wearing the Australian Vietnam Medal Riband and the Vietnam Campaign Medal Riband that had not been awarded to him on his Commissioned Officer's uniform.

He survived our exposure, was reprimanded, fined a trivial amount and is still serving. The Royal Australian Navy has set a precedent with Lieutenant Commander Ferrie, so Leading Seaman Cokanauto should have no problems with this exposure due to that precedent.

www.anzmi.net/brianferrie

We also have on site Flying Officer Graham Slingsby, currently of the Royal Australian Air Force who was exposed for fraudulently wearing a National Commendation for Brave Conduct on his Commissioned Officers uniform. We understand that this matter is still under investigation.

www.anzmi.net/grahamslingsby

It is an offence to wear military decorations that have not been officially awarded to you and the fines can be severe.

If you have to buy it, you haven't earned it. Simple as that.

Case Notes:

Lieutenant Colonel Paul Thomas Andersson VC GCM GC MC DSO Bar DSC CGM Bar and 32 MiDs slipped away from life on the 30 November 2015 under an old Oak tree whilst contemplating his life as "James Bond" of the Royal Marines. We never place wannabes on this web site if they are deceased before the entry is published, however in this case we make an exception because although we have his Death Certificate we know that he did not die.

Here is a photograph of the very much alive Paul Thomas Andersson however his name is really Paul Thomas Coldicot born 20 February 1970. He is an Australian citizen who resides in Brisbane Queensland. According to Coldicot, Andersson had to be killed off by UK Secret Service for security reasons

Coldicot 1 2


Here is Andersson's Death Certificate.

 

Coldicot 2 2


What happened to Andersson aka Coldicot? Well here it is:

Late September 2015 - escaped from Russia, after a secret mission, basically dead and in a coma.

From then to early November he was in a medically induced coma.

Andersson aka Coldicott 'woke up' early November. Some time after this, his very good friend named Lawry was called to active duty in Syria and was killed by American friendly fire.

Andersson aka Coldicot went to the funeral (in a wheelchair), drank a lot or alcohol and found a tree to sit under where he said he was dying and happy for it to happen. This was in Gloucester, in a cemetery owned by General Communications Headquarters (GCHQ)
www.gchq.gov.uk/pages/homepage.aspx which is a UK secret government organization. (GCHQ don't own a cemetery in that area and no military funeral was conducted in the main cemetery at that time).

Andersson aka Coldicot was giving an online running commentary of his activities up to the point where he was sitting waiting to die.

An hour or two after expiring beneath the spreading Oak tree, a person named "Sergeant Kingsley" found his body and advised of Andersson's death to those on Andersson's aka Coldicot's Social media.

Notice Sergeant Kingsly's name appears on the Death Certificate.

As per our first paragraph it can be seen that "Andersson" was a much decorated soldier. Here are some of his self reported adventures:

Claims to be on first name terms with Queen Elizabeth after having done personal protection duty for her. He says she offered him a Knighthood which he turned down because he "was just a "dumb soldier" and it "wasn't him".

As part of his work with MI6 he says that he was tasked with gathering information and videos on British politicians who took part in sex/bondage parties in order to use the information as leverage to get things done behind the scenes

He had a Global Positioning System (GPS) tracking device the size of a grain of rice in his shoulder.

In Afghanistan was hit by US shelling and copped shrapnel that tore his abdomen from rib cage to his belly button, intestines came out. He shoved them back in by stapling them himself and told his men he was fine. He then led them through hand to hand fighting through a cave system and then marched Forty kilometres back to an extraction point where he collapsed and was taken to hospital where he stayed for five months

He, with a team of three others were sent to clear bunkers in Iraq, they approached but then encountered six Armoured Personnel Carriers (APCs). He told his men to take care of the APCs while he went and cleared the bunkers himself. He killed lots of people and was awarded the George Cross

Spent Eighteen months tracking down a South East Asian sex trafficking gang. Gradually killed off the key players and then waited for the well known Malaysian Property Developer, the head of the outfit in the lobby of a fancy hotel. The man had Two guards, one was ex Spetznatz (see here: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spetsnaz) the other Israeli, he killed the two guards and then killed the leader in a marble bathroom in the foyer of the hotel. He escaped without detection and was out of the country within an hour

He went alone to see a man who knew where Two Hundred and Fifty kidnapped girls were being held. He had a retrieval team on standby. He tortured the man by removing a finger or toe every five minutes in order to extract information. He then hamstrung the man and took him outside and waited for Ravens to pick out an eye. The man gave up the location and Coldicot left him there to be "picked" to death. He forwarded the information to the retrieval team and the girls were rescued. The kidnappers were latter found hanging upside down in the trees with their genitals severed and shoved in their mouths. They had a multitude of cuts all over them and were left to die slow deaths

This is the "Mission" that lead to Andersson aka Coldicot being wheelchair bound and sitting beneath a spreading oak tree to expire

The target was in Eastern Russia in the middle of a very large Russian Training Ground. He was loaded into the bob tubes of a B2 Stealth Bomber and dropped into the target zone from One Hundred and Twenty Thousand feet in a heated suit. He walked Thirty Two kilometres to the shoot site only to find tanks as the chosen site, He found another site slightly worse but still around Two Thousand Five Hundred metres from the target. He took the shot and got a headshot and fired another for good measure which got the Marshal in the chest. Headshot was hollow point, second shot was fired before the first on hit and split the torso in half. Ran back towards the exit vehicle which was a Harrier Jet. Got within two kilometres when caught in an artillery barrage where a shell exploded above his head and to the right. His right eye was popped out of its socket which he pushed back in. He had a broken right shin and foot. He splinted the breaks with the barrel of his rifle and ran the remainder of the way to the Harrier. He was to be dropped out over the ocean to be picked up by a submarine. The Harrier pilot decided he was in no state so he flew at tree tops to get out of the "badlands" was refuelled twice in flight en route to the waiting hospital plane which took him direct to GCHQ hospital.

None of the above action should have in any way affected the mental health of Coldicot because he claims that he is not capable of experiencing PTSD, and disparages those who do. He said,

"His brain compartmentalises things and the psychs had told him he didn't have the type of brain that would be affected"

On the 28 December 2015 Coldicot wrote an email claiming to be recovering from his mission to Russia as Lt Col Andersson.

"As you likely guess from the email address, I have been moved to rehab and will hopefully soon be able to look after myself."

The address on the email was:

Coldicot 3 2




He is claiming to be in "Rehab" in the UK when in fact he was on his computer in Brisbane. A check of the email address "veteranrehab.co.uk " clearly shows that Coldicot is the registered owner of the Domain.

 

Coldicot 3 2



Coldicot was not in "rehab" in the UK in late December 2015 as he was photographed on the balcony of his Brisbane inner city appartment at 11:34 am on the 30 Dec 2015.

Coldicot is a self appointed legend who has told his stories to more than one person.

In fact he is not a legend, he is a foolish buffoon who is now an enemy to all Australian, and New Zealand Veterans and ex Servicepersons. He is an enemy of the Royal Marine Association in both Australia and the UK. He is an enemy of the UK Secret Service (whoever they may be). He should also be an enemy to our readers world wide. He has gone from hero to zero and should disappear and shut up about his fanciful ideas of service with the Royal Marines.

We know that Coldicot injects himself with steroids that he claims are supplied by the UK "Secret Service". Perhaps the steroids that he in fact purchases have addled his brain and pushed him into his fanciful Walter Mitty existence. Whatever the reason he needs urgent psychiatric help.

We welcome Paul Thomas Coldicot to our web site and hope that our exposure will stop him from his ridiculous claims of "Secret Service" operations that are an insult to all who have served in the Armed Forces of the UK, Australia and New Zealand.

Anthony John Colledge –  Convicted thief and wannabe

We do have a newspaper clipping, reporting Colledge of giving a false statement of his Army service to a Townsville Judge.

 

colledge-3

 

 

Colledge was a member of the Royal Australian Engineers who served in Townsville.

We often get reports of ex Service persons giving false evidence of their service as either an excuse for their bad behaviour or as information to be taken into consideration in sentencing.

We had no involvement in Colledge’s case, but we have been involved in having people resentenced because of telling lies in court about their Defence Service.

Colledge’s lies put him in the category of a liar and a wannabe and for that reason he is included on this web site.

Colledge was exposed in the Townsville Queensland newspaper for that entire region to see; now he is reported on our web site for the world to see.

Be a wannabe at your own risk.

Note: If you have a photograph of Colledge we will be happy to include in this exposure.

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 the private citizens are supported by statement of fact and statutory declarations.

On The ANZMI Website we have the following:

1. Current serving Defence Force members, who have embellished their service and added non  awarded medals to their rack.


2. Former serving Defence Force members, who have embellished their service and added non awarded medals to their rack.

3. Members of the community, who have had no military service whatsoever, who love to attend Anzac Days and other commemorative occasions, sporting military medals, ribbons and badges that they have not earned or been awarded.

Arthur Collimore from Arden Street, Coogee, is a member of the third group.

The below photograph was taken on Anzac Day, 2016 in Coogee, NSW.

Collimore photo1


In the above photograph, Collimore is wearing the -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal, 1945 -1975.
2. Vietnam Medal.
3. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

He is also wearing the ribbons applicable for those awards. Above the ribbons and medals, he wears a crossed rifles badge, which is a World War 2 Marksman accoutrement. He also wears a beret with an Australian Army Infantry Corps hat badge. He is not entitled to wear any of them.

The below photograph shows a "hatless" Collimore saluting the Australian Flag at the 2016 Anzac Day ceremony at the Coogee Legion Club, Sydney following his laying of a wreath.

His salute is not the official Australian Army salute but something similar to a Royal Australian Navy salute.

As he is not wearing military uniform, he should not be saluting at all. He should stand back at attention and bow his head, and place his right hand over his medals, as has been the long held tradition.

He has no idea.

Collimore2


Our last photograph is the Anzac Day wreath with a self explanatory card. Collimore had convinced the Coogee Legion Club Sub Branch executive that he was a Korea and Vietnam War Veteran. Consequently, the commemoration card, which was composed from information that Collimore had given the executive staff, denotes that he is a Korea and Vietnam veteran. (Served both theatres)

Collimore3


Arthur Collimore is an imposter. He is a proven liar and a medal cheat. There is no record of any defence service for Arthur Collimore. His name also does not appear on the Nominal Roll of Korean Veterans, or the Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans.

He has been acting out his charade for many years at official commemorative ceremonies, and until recently, no one has ever questioned his decision or right to wear Korean War or Vietnam War campaign medals.

We know that Collimore does not march with Returned Korean or Vietnam Associations, but prefers to march with Second World War Associations, where his claims to Korean and Vietnam active service will not be questioned.

He attends the Coogee Legion Club in Sydney, where he continues his lies regarding his false military history. He has even claimed to colleagues at another club he frequents, that he was dishonourably discharged from the Australian Army due to him becoming a heroin addict in Vietnam.

On the Sunday prior to Anzac Day, 2016, following the Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Club, Collimore was invited to join their struggling Sub Branch. He was informed that he was required to provide evidence of his service in the Australian Military Forces. Of course, none has been forthcoming, and none will be.

Collimore has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 for many years, by wearing purchased replica campaign medals and claiming to be a Korea and Vietnam War veteran.

He is neither. He is a blatant fraud, who will grace the ANZMI website for many years to come.

Case Notes:

 

 

Ben Collison is a rarity in the world of the wannabe. The reason for this is that he is one of the few who have been prosecuted for the offences committed by wearing medals when not entitled to do so. Hooray we here at ANZMI say, finally law enforcement in NSW have taken a leaf from the book of their Victorian and South Australian colleagues and taken the appropriate action by putting this peacock in front of the Courts to answer for his actions. Unfortunately as will be seen in the following paragraphs, it appears Collison failed to learn from the experience and appears to us here at ANZMI to be snubbing his nose at the justice system and the veteran community. Now we at ANZMI cannot claim to have exposed Collison, and the good work of the NSW Police must be acknowledged. However, as we know
when you scratch a sore you find much more to the story.
 
 
Here is the peacock in full plumage. The fact is, the only medal he is entitled to wear is the Australian Defence Medal (ADM). That is it, nothing more. It will be noted that in this photograph he is also wearing the Returned form Active Service badge (RASB) and the Army Combat Badge (ACB) for which he has no entitlement either.Collison’s actual service was somewhat less distinguished than he would have us believe. He served for 12 months or so in the Army Reserves before joining the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as a Cook. His service was average, nothing spectacular and after apparently suffering a knee injury, he was discharged in 2011.
 
 
Many in the ex-service community would be aware that Ben Collison was convicted for wearing medals he had not earned.
 
 




 
Not letting the truth stand in the way of a good story, Collison regaled himself with self-awarded medals and picked up a diagnosis of PTSD for good measure. He then ingratiated himself into the veteran community and even secured himself a job in the office of a local politician as some sort of advisor on veteran’s matters, attending functions and representing himself as a decorated returned veteran. Indeed, he even managed to be mentioned in a speech to the Queensland Parliament by his then boss, Michael Pucci, the Member for Logan. A full version of the speech is available on the web, but the relevant parts of that speech bellow:
 
 
 
 
 
In his Defence for his actions, Collison continues with the ruse of Defence Force related PTSD with the Court records noting:“He stated when he met the group he felt uncomfortable in telling the group his PSTD was not from overseas combat and did not correct people when asked,” the Facts read.

Is there anything worse than wearing medals you are not entitled to? In the case of Ben Collison, the answer is yes. He has claimed to be suffering from PTSD a condition which many genuine veterans suffer in silence. This conditions impacts on their wellbeing, family life and indeed their lives. It is not a condition to be treated with the contempt that Collison has displayed to genuine incapacitated veterans.He had the audacity to use his so called PTSD as a means to justify his actions to the Court.“The court heard he had joined the Army Reserve in 2005 before joining the air force in August 2007 where he served as a cook. He suffered a knee injury and was eventually discharged in October 2011 for physical and mental health reasons but never served overseas”

Note that Court Records indicate he was discharged for physical and mental health reasons, but it is important not to confuse ‘mental health reasons’ with PTSD. There are many forms of mental illness and to simply play the PTSD card is disgraceful, offensive and a plain and simple lie to the Court.How can we at ANZMI form the view that Collison was lying to the Court? Well with his own words he has hung himself. The following comment was found on his Facebook page, posted well after the Court case had been completed and he was relishing in the mediocre sentence he was awarded:
 
 
Now, if that comment wasn’t enough to demonstrate what sort of low life flea we are really dealing with here, we will let him again, in his own words show how contrite he is at wearing medals he is not entitled to and impersonating a genuine veteran:
 
 
 
 
Finally, his Facebook comment about his conviction and the circumstances surrounding his arrest:
 
 
 
 
And this final comment which just about sums this scumbag up. Please note his comment about PTSD:
 
 
 
Ben Collison’s mediocre effort at making light of his situation on his Facebook page simply reinforces the fact that mental illness, but not PTSD may well be an issue for him. Despite that, his contemptible behaviour before and after his arrest and conviction tell us a lot about this individual.It is in the best interests of Ex-Service Organisations to keep a close eye out for Ben Collison, he has shown no remorse for his actions and will no doubt re-offend. He is a contemptible nobody who has disgraced himself and simply belittled his genuine service. He has won for himself a permanent place on our website.For those who sometimes wonder why ANZMI does what it does, we suggest you look closely at this case and for those who would disparage our work exposing wannabes such as Ben Collison, ask yourself if you could turn a blind eye to his actions, particularly if you claim to support genuine Veterans and the genuine suffers of PTSD?
