Surname: Robinson
Christian Names: Alick Frank
Country: Australia
State or Province: QLD
City or Town: Coolum
Case Notes:

Alick Frank Robinson of Coolum Queensland was almost a Cook or a Steward in the Australian Army, however, he was discharged after only five months service.  He must have had a yearning to be a Special Air Service (SAS) soldier as he likes to “Dress up” and tell people that he served in the elite Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) for six years.

 

 

The photo depicts Robinson boldly wearing the much coveted SASR Beret with SASR Badge and camouflage clothing. On his right breast he exhibits an Infantry Combat Badge, and Efficiency Badge and indistinguishable collar tags.  An ex SASR or Infantry soldier would never wear an Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) on the wrong side. Robinson has it on his right breast, whereas it is always worn on the left breast above medals or ribbons.  

In a recent exchange on a “Facebook” website, Robinson said the following”

20 June 2008 at 9:20pm – From Alick Robinson

“hi xxxxx long time no see been a long time since i live (sic) at little spence street, use (sic) to go to your place and play cricket.  Havent heard from Gary XXXX since he was in the navy when i was in army.  me now am retired and living at the beach as they say a beach bum.  but done my hard work now relaxing hope to catch up with everyone (sic) at the reunion if I not back in usa chat to you again alick”

24 June 2008 at 9:39pm – From Alick Robinson

“Hi xxxxx, join the army in 1982 as a grunt (inf). Was a grunt for 3 years then went into SAS for 6 years.  When I did my 9 years I left still have larmy reunion every year with my fellow grunts and SAS guys. Alick”

25 June 2008 at 3:25pm – From Alick Robinson

“Small World did my basic ar (sic) 1RTB then to grunt training was station (sic) at Townsville 1RAR at lav barrack after 18 mth applied for SAS fail first attempt (sic) but got in on my second go went oversea (sic. Do miss it a bit but now just taking it easy and enjoying life. Alick”

Robinson claims nine years service, three years as an Infantry Soldier, and six years with the elite SASR, including "overseas service" with the SASR.

The real Military History of Alick Frank Robinson is somewhat different and much briefer than what he claims it can be written in three brief sentences:

181562 Private Alick Frank ROBINSON, born 27 Feb 61.

Enlisted Australian Regular Army, 16 Aug 82 and discharged 25 Jan 83.

He was Australian Army Catering Corps (AACC), and is unlikely that he actually got to a unit after Recruit Training and AACC training.

In summary he was in the Army for five months, during that time he completed Recruit Training, and was then trained as a Cook or a Steward in the Army Catering Corps, and most likely, before even being posted to an operational unit was discharged.

Nothing exciting – No SASR.  Just a basic Cook or Steward who was discharged before even commencing work.

Ex Service Organisations in the Coolum, Queensland area should keep an eye out for Alick Robinson and brief their members to brook no nonsense from this wannabe ex Cook/Steward drop out, who thought he served as an Infantry soldier for three years and for six years with the elite Special Air Service Regiment.

His wearing of the coveted SASR Beret and Infantry Combat Badge and his claims to be a war veteran who served “overseas” is an affront to all who have served.

It is with pleasure that we expose to the world, Alick Frank Robinson, born on 27th February 1961 in Cairns, Queensland and now residing in Coolum, Queensland.

By the smile on his face in the photo, Robinson has enjoyed his charade, now he can enjoy his exposure as a fraud and a military wannabe.

Robert Arthur Robinson – Navy Tin Man

Robinson has been awarded four medals for service in the Royal Australian Navy but has chosen to sweeten his pie by adding another two medals to his rack

 

 

Robinson is wearing the following legitimate medals, from left to right.

Active Service Medal with clasp FESR

Defence Force Service Medal 1st clasp

National Medal

Australian Defence Medal

He is also wearing two unauthorized “Tin” Commemorative Medals that are no more than sparkly trinkets.  

FESR Commemorative Medal

Simpson Medal

Both these commemorative medals are abominations and should be cast asunder with ignominy.

Robinson may have added these medals to boost his image in society. Maybe kids in the street will stare in awe at his six medals but Veterans everywhere, laugh and shake their heads.

Welcome to the web site Robert Robinson, you can choose to throw away the two trinkets or keep them on, but be assured you will never be removed from this page that has been broadcast to the world.

Case Notes:

 

Richard John Robinson hales from Boulder in the Gold Fields of Western Australia.

RobinsonRich 1 2017 01 26

 

RobinsonRich 2 2017 01 26

 

Robinson was a National Serviceman who claims he served in Vietnam, hence the array of six medals.

The photograph is a bit "blurry" but we believe he is wearing:

Australian Active Service Medal - Not entitled, was never on active service.
Vietnam Medal - Not entitled never served in Vietnam
National Medal - Entitled for work with Fire Brigade
Australian Defence Medal - Entitled
Commemoration of National Service Medal - Entitled
Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal - Not entitled never served in Vietnam.

For many years Robinson has been spinning his Vietnam yarns around the Gold Fields. From the quality of what he says most veterans realize that he is a liar, cheat and wannabe, however generally, citizens of the area believe he is a returned Serviceman, which he is not.

To prove his "story" he claims in the local paper that he met a now deceased Gold Fields man in Saigon whilst serving in Vietnam. There is no evidence in any official government nominal rolls to show that either Robinson or the person he has named ever served in Vietnam.

The newspaper article is of poor quality, but here is what was said:

"Long time friend Rich Robinson will be attending todays shoot to honour his mate who he first met in Saigon whilst on National Service. He was on leave and someone said there is a guy from Kalgoorlie over there."Robinson said he came over and introduced himself and we spoke for a while. One day I walked into the Boulder ex Servicemens Club and there he was. We have been mates ever since.""

We sent Robinson a letter requesting information about his service. We have not received a reply.

"Mr Richard John Robinson 9 May 2016
xxxxxxxxxx Street
Boulder WA 6432Dear Mr RobinsonOur organisation works on behalf of Australian and New Zealand Defence Force Veterans.We have been advised that you are a well known Vietnam Veteran, however we have been unable to find any evidence of your service.We have no leanings one way or the other and therefore thought it best to ask you direct to advise about your service. This matter will be easily resolved on receipt of details from you.Please respond to the above email address before the 17th May 2016.Should you not answer we will proceed without your input.Sincerely
Bill Hobson
ANZMI"


Robinson claims service with Army Small Ships, these ships worked in Vietnam waters and also carried supplies from Australia to Vietnam. See detailed information here:

pronto.au104.org/Pronto_Book/ProntoSVN_CH5-3_2013.pdf

We made and enquiry to 32 Small Ship Squadron Association and below is the reply we received.

"Hi Bill,
Thank you for your enquiry. We have no record of Richard John Robinson as having served in 32 Small Ship Squadron or Vietnam.
I hope you nail him if he is an impostor (he is the second person you have identified who has claimed to have served in 32 and Vietnam).
All the best,
xxxxx"


We will advise the Boulder police that Robinson is illegally wearing Defence medals which is an offence against the Defence Act 1903 and has a maximum penalty of a fine of $3,300 or six months imprisonment or both. Throughout Australia, State Police have successfully prosecuted many wannabes under this legislation

We ask Gold Fields Veterans to keep a watch for Robinson on commemorative occasions and if seen, tell him to remove the Vietnam medals and depart the event.

We however, are pleased to welcome Robinson to our website as another liar, cheat and wannabe. The ex Service community is very large and wide spread, if you are faking your military service it is most likely that you will be noticed and end up with Robinson and the hundreds of other guests reposing on our website.

Dear Sirs,

Whilst we appreciate your right to publish the profiles of frauds and wannabe’s on your site, we would appreciate if you could restrict the dialog to the facts of the person concerned and request that the following corrections be made to the Profile of “Steve Rochford”:

Steve was a member of Patriots Australia and was a older member of the Club. Since December 2013 we have conducted our own internal investigation of the adornments worn by Steve and wish to advise that as a result of that investigation and allowing due process, Steve is no longer a member of Patriots Australia and was not a member at the time of your publication of his profile.

The photo displayed is not recent it is over 4 years old.

Patriots Australia have in the early years, relied on the honesty and integrity of those that joined our Club, criteria has over the years been reviewed and evolved to become more academic and is now scrutinised in more detail.

We see no purpose or benefit in the comments referring to “Patriots Australia” in your dialog and request that it be reworded so as not to shed bad light on a Club that serves a genuine purpose in assisting Military Personnel in surviving and assimilation back into a normal civilian life.

We trust that you will amend the entry accordingly.

Kindest regards

Patriots Australia

 

We do not disparage any organisation that assists in the welfare of returned service men and women.

However, it is becoming increasingly apparent that some veterans organisations, due to decreasing numbers, will accept on face value any individual who is interested in joining their activities without the proper checks and balances .

This is particularly so in regards to entitlements to wear officially awarded medals and badges.

It is not hard. A copy of a Discharge Certificate would normally suffice or other proof can be obtained quite readily by requesting applicants to produce personal service records that they can access.

It is the responsibility of the organisation to verify entitlements, particularly if they allow their members to wear Australian military medals and badges on civilian clothing. Simple as that.
 



The Patriots have harboured this fraudulent wannabee for about four years if you take into account the information provided in the above E mail. They state that the photograph is four years old, yet they only completed their investigation in December 2013. (Three months ago.) They had to know that he was not entitled to wear the ribands and badges he displayed. One look at his Australian Combat Badge complementing the non war like ribands he was wearing should have set off alarm bells.

As for Rochford not knowing what he was entitled to is Fairyland fantasy and the Patriots management who allowed this should stand down for being so incompetent.

We stand by our exposure of Rochford and this case will remain on site as is.

This should be a warning to all similar organisations that they hold in their hands the full responsibility to maintain the highest integrity of all veterans everywhere.

As stated, this is becoming more prevalent and we would like to direct you to the activities of Grant Francis Sutton, another motor cycle enthusiast, who is also on our ANZMI website and was a member of the Military Brotherhood Military Motorcycle Club. (MBMMC) Queensland. He also likes to dress up. 

 

Original Exposure

Steven John Rochford, of Deception Bay in Queensland is a member of the Australian Patriots Motor Cycle Club. The Patriots Motor Cycle Club is an Australia wide club that consists of current and former members of the Defence Force who have an interest in motor cycles. There are Chapters in most Australian States. Unfortunately, members who join this organisation are not thoroughly investigated as to their bona fides for medal entitlements that they wear on civilian clothing at club outings and social functions.
 

Rochford-1

Steven John Rochford, whose photograph appears above is sporting an interesting array of medal ribands and badges.

This photograph was taken recently at a Patriots Motor Cycle function and shows Rochford wearing the following ribands and badges on the left side of his chest.

1. The Australian Service Medal/Riband. 1945 - 1975.

This medal/riband is issued to members of the Australian Defence Force for service in connection with prescribed non warlike operations during the period commencing the 3rd September 1945 to the 16th September, 1975. A nickel silver clasp is also issued to the recipient with the medal identifying the theatre of action. e.g. Middle East, Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands etc. There are 14 locations listed on the The Australian Defence Honours and Awards Site. The 14 locations listed are all outside Australia.
 

2. The Australian Defence Medal/Riband

This medal/riband is issued to current and former members of the Australian Defence Force in recognition for completing four years service and also former National Servicemen and Australian Reserve personnel with qualifying service.
 

3. The Regular Forces Medal/Riband.

This is an unofficial non issued (tin) medal/riband that the wearer purchases from a Medal Shop or on the Internet. Usually about twenty dollars. (A$20.00) It means nothing and only adds to a wannabees rack of unauthorised medals or ribands.

4. The Army Combat Badge. (ACB)

The purpose of the Army Combat Badge is to recognise the unique service of an Australian Defence Force member operating with an Arms Corps Unit within a War Like Area of operations. The member must have been serving on warlike operations and been force assigned to a combat team for a continuous period of 90 days, or an aggregate period of 90 days. The ACB recognises service with a combat element.

Rochford-2


On his right chest, Rochford is wearing the Australian Individual Readiness Notification Badge.
 

5. The Australian Individual Readiness Notification badge. (AIRN).

The AIRN is issued to personnel who are qualified in readiness requirements in accordance with Defence instructions. It is only to be worn on Ceremonial Dress or uniform. It is never to be worn on civilian clothing.

Rochford-3


The AIRN badge was not issued to current qualified serving members until the mid to late 1990's. Rochford had discharged from the Australian Army in 1978.

Rochford has broken all the rules. He served in the Australian Army from 1973 to 1978. His 5 years service to the Nation was no doubt honourable and without incident.

He joined as a young apprentice, passed his trade courses and obviously became a valuable member of RAEME and the Australian Army. He should have been proud of that service.

Unfortunately though as time went on, Rochford decided to embellish his service and portray an image of a Soldier who had accomplished more than he did. Obviously, this was to impress his Patriot Club Motor Cycle associates and anyone else he happened to encounter.

Rochford completed his entire service in Australia. He had no overseas duties during his five years.

His entitlement for his service is the Australian Defence Medal. He should also be proud of that!
He is not entitled to wear the Australian Service Medal/Riband (ASM), the Army Combat Badge, (ACB), the "tin" Regular Forces Riband, and the AIRN. The medal ribands and badges have all been purchased.

We sent Steven Rochford a communication and asked him if he wished to respond to our request regarding his wearing of the ribands and badges in the photo.
He replied that -;

"The awards issue, to me, is a non event. Embarassing, but a non-event regardless."
He went on to say that a local member of his RSL had a medal mounting service and was always at him (Rochford) to "let me do your gongs".

Rochford stated that -;

" I had been out of the Military for twenty years and had no idea what I was entitled to. I eventually relented and paid him to do so based on my military history which I related to him. He sold me the package and I wore them in good faith assuming he knew what was correct."

Rochford must have told him some really good personal "operational" stories for his mate to have mounted the above ribands and sell them to him , particularly the ASM, together with the ACB and the AIRN.

Rochford declared that "I had no idea what I was entitled to". For a former member of the Australian Army with five years service to openly state those words, Rochford has shown himself to be a complete idiot.

Rochford lives in Deception Bay, a suburb north of Brisbane , Queensland, Australia. It was so named in 1823 by an explorer, Lieutenant John Oxley, due to it's "shallowness". (Wikipedia)

By his actions, Deception Bay and it's shallowness, is probably the most appropriate place in the whole of Australia for Stephen Rochford to reside. Welcome to the website.

Case Notes:

 

UPDATE: ROMAN aka David Mark SCOTT etc etc

 

Mark Anthony ROMAN aka Mark D'Roman aka Mark Western aka John Heil aka

Mark Reid aka Mark Lahey aka Montgomery Mark Moore, aka Montgomery Weir and now he is known as David Mark Scott.

Roman aka Reid etc etc now known as David Mark Scott holds a Western Australia (WA) Driving Licence under that name:

 

 Roman

We don't know how a person with so many names manages to get a WA Government Driving Licence. Perhaps David Mark Scott is his real name, but when he was Mark Reid he held a driving licence under that name. When he was known as Mark Anthony Roman he was driving a Porsche car so would have had a driving licence under that name.

Roman aka Scott etc etc is a recidivist con man without any talent for his chosen criminal activities as we have been able to keep a trace on him for six years.

There are Veterans throughout Australia monitoring this man for what he has done and will keep a watch on him.

How he came to be a citizen or resident of Australia we don't know, because he spent time in prison in the UK for serious crime and at the time of his departure from the UK was being investigated for another serious crime.

In a recent resume, he claims that between May 2017 and August 2017 to have returned to the UK, and worked in Bradford UK which meant travel to and from the UK. It is doubted that he was ever there, but if he was, he claims to have worked under the name of David Scott.   Who knows what name he would have travelled under?

 

In one of his many resumes under different names, he claims to have been in Australia since 2006.

Roman aka Scott etc etc has well been recognized by Australian Veterans and by those from whom he seeks jobs as a liar and fraud.

We believe it would be better for him and for Australia to leave our shores and peddle his piddling and contemptuous fraud somewhere else.

Updated 07 Nov 2013

Marco D Roman aka Montgomery Mark Moore, Montgomery Weir of Dawesville, Mandurah, Western Australia is a liar, fraud and cheat who uses numerous other names including that of people he knows or have been in contact with him.

Roman-1

Marco Roman first appeared on the Walter Mitty website in the United Kingdom, see link below

http://waltermittyhunt.com/index.php/report-a-walt/viewgroup/114-marco-d-roman-sas-walter-mitty

Roman-2

We were made aware of Roman some time back when we were sent images from his Facebook page as he has been seen marching on ANZAC Day 2012 and 2013 in Perth, Western Australia on his own claiming to be a member of the British SAS. You will notice in the first photograph from his Facebook page it was taken at the Dawn Service at Kings Park in Perth 2012. He has most likely attended other ex-service commemorations as can be seen from his Facebook pages.

Due to other ongoing investigations by a certain department we have waited till now to expose him.

What we know of his military history is that he did join the British Army and went to the Parachute Regiment till he was kicked out as he did not meet the requirements to belong to such an Elite Regiment.

Roman-3

 

 

Roman-4

He was sent to the Green Jackets, but his time there was short lived after being charged with Manslaughter and spent time in an establishment at the Her Majesty’s pleasure. He left the United Kingdom to come to Australia before British Police could speak to him regarding a Grievous Bodily Harm and Fraud enquiries.

We know that he has committed a number of frauds in Western Australia, worked as a FIFO (fly in fly out) worker in the Northwest of Western Australia and claimed to be ex British, 16 Air Assault Brigade, Parachute Regiment as well as making a claim he was ex Australian SAS. Another claim he made was that he had his front teeth knocked out by the Irish republican Army (IRA) by being somewhere he wasn’t supposed to be.

Roman-5

Roman-6

 

You will also notice that he has marched claiming to be ex British SAS, but he is wearing the Australian SAS Beret and Badge. The two different ties he wears are Australian SAS Association ties as well as a blazer badge which he cannot seem to decide what side it should be worn. It is worn on the left of a jacket pocket as can be seen on any ANZAC Day from Associations that wear a blazer badge on their jackets.

These SAS items can be seen in any place around Australia being worn on ANZAC Day by real members of the SAS Association. Some items can be purchased on eBay from time to time or Military Disposal Stores.

In one photo he is wearing a lapel badge which was identified on eBay as being the 50th anniversary badge of the Australian SAS back in 2007.

Roman-7

The correct beret and badge for the British SAS can be seen below.

Roman-8

Marco Roman or whatever you want to call yourself, you would have to be one of the dumbest wannabe’s claiming to be ex SAS and to place those photos on Facebook proves it.

You may pose as a member of an Elite Army Unit, but you do not have the calibre to be one. For your lack of respect to these men of those units who carry out dangerous missions some of whom have not returned, you have earned your place on our website as well as in the United Kingdom for eternity.

Updated 24 Sep 2013

New information has come to our attention regarding this person.

His official documents (most likely fraudulent) have his name listed as Antonio Marco D'Roman as he has a history of forging documents which include qualifications and identity papers. Every time he changes his name, there is a story about using his birth parents' surname.

He is know by more than 20 pseudonyms some of which are:

Mark D'Roman

Mark Western

John Heil

Mark Reid

Mark Lahey

It is anyones guess as to what name he will use next and companies need to keep a watch out for this person who appears to have no morals.

Updated 07 Nov 2013

We have received a copy of a resume Marco D'Roman left on a computer, only a small portion of that is being put up to protect names of companies and indivduals he has named in the resume. The main part is about referring to his service in the British forces from 1999 to 2007 in which he states;

"Unable to disclose information on curriculm vitae due to service confidentiality".

If this was true, why did he parade on ANZAC Day trying to make out he served with the UK SAS. All members of the British Armed Forces can request a copy of their service record which would show units served in and what qualifications and rank they have obtained during their service. The only thing they would not be able to mention is any covert operations they took part that are classified as Secret.

So we have more lies told by him to cover up his poor less than desirable service record.

Surname: Ronay

Case Notes:

Jimmy Ronay –Submariner - Special Air Service operative and  hedge clipper
 
Jimmy Ronay is that smiling almost invisible man that you may see toiling away at the Glandore Community Centre in the City of Marion in the Adelaide region. But beware, according to Jimmy there lurks the hidden past of a mighty warrior


 


  Jimmy claims in the document below to have served with the British Navy then immigrated to Australia, joined the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) and was well decorated during seven tours of duty in Vietnam. 

See the report below:
 


Ronay has told a Veteran. 

"Ronay served three years with the British Royal Navy and claims to have qualified as a carpenter and then claims to have been employed on Submarines.  Following his Royal Navy service and his migration to Australia, letters were sent from the British Government to the Australian Government saying that Ronay would be of great use to the Australian Defence Force.  A letter was sent to his residence in Mount Gambier in South Australia telling him to report for Military Duty at Puckapunyal in Victoria.  During his seven tours of Vietnam and because of his "Submarine" experience Ronay was seconded to the United States of America Navy (USN) where he was a “Spotter” for USN Ship Missouri. For this work he used glasses that turned green when he sighted the target, and they sent a signal to the Missouri for fire missions they were dead accurate. At other times in Vietnam, Ronay was  a “Spotter for B52's, a  Dog Handler a Tunnel rat and did totally secret missions for the Government who will not release details of his missions. The Government will however release his details if he signs a document requesting them to. He refuses to sign".

Australian Veterans are spread to every corner of Australia and are quick to recognize and report  liars and wannabes. In the Glandore Community Centre “blurb” it says of Jimmy:
 
“Jimmy epitomises the very best in volunteering and is a wonderful role model to others in the community” 

If the Glandore Community Centre believes that being a liar and a wannabe is an ideal role model we can’t really blame them because who would disbelieve such a “lovely” old con man.  Wannabes come in all shapes and sizes and ages. Jimmy Ronay is a senior citizen and a community volunteer but that does not give him the right to steal the honour of veterans.
 
We instigated a search for a Defence file for Ronay and received the following answer
 
Dear Mrs XXXXXXXXXX, 

Thank you for your query about the service records relating to the following servicemen: James RONAY

Post-WWII Army records are held by the Central Army Records Office (CARO). They have advised us that they were unable to locate a Post 1947 Army Service record for this individual. We provided them with the following information: 

Name:                           James RONAY

Date & place of birth:       Scotland

CARO Reference Officer Access & Communications

In addition Ronay is not included on the official Department of Veterans Affairs Nominal Roll, where all those who served with any of the three squadrons of Special Air Services are listed. We wrote a polite request to Jimmy Ronay seeking confirmation from him of his “Seven Tours of Vietnam”.  Jimmy failed to respond.   

We also contacted the Manager of the Glandore Community Centre and suggested that Jimmy may have been misquoted, however we are assured that what was written was what Jimmy said – “Seven Tours of Vietnam with Australian Special Air Services”

Jimmy Ronay has never served with the elite Special Air Service Regiment and has never served in Vietnam with the Australian Defence Force. He is not just a silly old bugger.  He is a liar and a wannabe
