Michael John TURNER, AKA Mick “Pugs” Turner of Adelaide, South Australia posing as an ex-serviceman from the 1st Commando Regiment.

 The photo was taken after 32 hours without sleep according to his facebook page.

We can confirm there are no records of him having served in the Australian Defence Force, but we do know he works as an armed security guard in the Adelaide area and wears SWAT type equipment he purchased himself which is not the standard equipment worn by armed guards employed by the security companies.

Another photo appearing on his page is a group of medals which would imply they are his medals, but we know they are not.

The medals from left to right are as follows:

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1975 with a number of clasps indicating the war like operations

2. Interfet East Timor

3. Iraq Medal

4. Afghanistan Medal

5. Australian Service Medal 1975 with clasp East Timor

6. DFSM Defence Force Service Medal with 2 clasps indicating 25 years of service in the military

7. Australian Defence Medal

8. NATO Balkans (North Atlantic Treaty Organization) with clasp

9. NATO ISAF North Atlantic Treaty Organization Afghanistan with clasp

10. UN UNTAG Namibia (United Nations Transition Assistance Group)

11. United Kingdom Operational Service Medal Afghanistan with clasp

12. United Kingdom Iraq Reconstruction Service Medal

13 Timor Leste Solidarity Medal


We do not know who actually owns these medals, but would like to hear from the person who does.


To add insult to our servicemen in the Special Forces Operations Group, Turner posted another photo on his facebook page, which has been closed down.



A recent new release shows where the photo was taken see the link below. It is a 500lb bomb strike on an insurgent position.



Michael John TURNER you are a wannabe of the highest order who will have no place to hide and deserve any ridicule or treatment from the public and ex-servicemen that is dished out to you. Two Battle Honours and a number of individual awards resulted from that battle.

Your award is to have earned the right to be on our website for eternity.
