Unofficial medals

Ex-service organisations sometimes commission their own unofficial medals to mark participation in particular military campaigns, periods of service or types of service that have not been recognised through the Australian honours system. Awards made by foreign governments which have not been approved by the Governor-General for acceptance and wear are also "unofficial". There is no impediment to wearing such medals in appropriate private settings, such as a meeting of the relevant ex-service association, or a reception hosted by the relevant foreign government. Ideally, unofficial medals should not be worn at public ceremonial and commemorative events, but if they are worn as the occasion demands, the convention is that they are worn on the right breast.

Steve Wright you have earned a place on the Medals Cheat Page.

Somalia

Inquiry into Recognition of Australian Defence Force Service in Somalia between 1992 and 1995

The Tribunal considered a range of recognition issues relating to ADF service in Somalia, including a campaign medal, awarding of the Australian Active Service Medal to HMA Ships TOBRUK and JERVIS BAY and recognition for 1st Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment.

Submissions closed on 24 August 2009.

The report was presented to the then Minister for Defence (MINDEF) on 5 July 2010. On 16 July 2010 MINDEF advised the Chair that the Government had accepted the following recommendations in this matter:

The Tribunal recommends that the original CGS Commendation not be upgraded to that of a MUC.

The Tribunal recommends that a campaign medal for service in Somalia 1992-1995 not be struck.

The Tribunal recommends the upgrade of the ASM (Clasp SOMALIA) that was awarded to HMAS Tobruk ship’s company to the award of the AASM (Clasp SOMALIA).

The Tribunal recommends that HMAS Jervis Bay ship’s company be awarded the AASM (Clasp SOMALIA).

The Tribunal recommends that members of HMAS Tobruk or HMAS Jervis Bay deployed to Somalia between 1992 and 1993 not be considered for the award of the UN Medal because they were not assigned to the United Nations nor did they meet the 90 day eligibility criteria.

The Tribunal recommends that the Australian Government not approach the UN to alter the eligibility criteria for the UN Medal.

The Tribunal recommends that a Meritorious Unit Citation not be considered for the Australian Service Contingent of UNOSOM II.

The Tribunal recommends no changes be made to the current policy of one award per operational service.

The Tribunal recommends that no further consideration of additional distinguished service awards be made for either UNITAF or UNOSOM II.

The Tribunal recommends that no changes be made to the extant policy for visitors or members not force assigned.

On 18 April 2011 the Government announced its acceptance of the Tribunal’s recommendations.

We at ANZMI have a particular dislike for those reptiles that can generally be called ‘love rats’ and Samuel Raynor Wright certainly fits the profile.

‘Love rats’ are probably best defined as odious creatures, unfortunately usually males, who have affairs or sexual relationships with more than one partner at the same time and usually swearing undying love to each.

But as if being a ‘love rat’ wasn’t bad enough, Sammy Wright also cheated his various female victims out of their money. To aid in his multiple deceptions, Wright claimed to be dying from non-Hodgkin lymphoma. And it gets worse.

To add an extra colourful layer to his lies, he also boasted that he had served as a US Marine sniper in Iraq and had been wounded in action. That little throw-away information was enough to set ANZMI on his tail. We not only despise Aussie and Kiwi imposters and wannabes, but we are more than happy to take up the cudgel if another country’s military reputation is tarnished. The truth about ‘Marine sniper’ Samuel Wright is that he is a one-time postie from the Hobart suburb of Berridale with no military service anywhere so far as we can determine.

Needless to say, Wright’s ‘porkies’ eventually saw him come undone, putting him before a court where he was jailed for 10 fraud charges involving a sum $12,000.

This sordid story began in 2013 and continued on into 2014 when Wright put himself ‘out there’ by way of on-line dating sites. During this time he had so many women on the go that he began calling each of them ‘Bloss’ (short for ‘Blossom’) so that he wouldn’t be caught out using the wrong name. And as is generally the case with blokes like him, Wright used the women’s vulnerability to extract cash from them while also claiming to be under chemo treatment for his ‘cancer’.

He extracted $2000 from one unfortunate woman by claiming his military pension was late and he needed the money for rent. On another occasion, he used his ‘terminal cancer’, saying he had ruined his morphine pump when it fell into the toilet. Probably wiping tears from her eyes, this ‘girlfriend’ also coughed up $2000 to replace the non-existent unit. He used a similar ruse to extort $5217 for so-called ‘pain medication.

Each of the women Wright ‘borrowed’ from was told that he would repay them from a will. A sort of ‘the cheques in the mail’ promise!

Fortunately, Sammy Wright’s nefarious stories began to come unstuck; no doubt by having too many irons in the fire at the same time and the Tasmania Police paid him a visit in June 2014. But it seems that Wright thought his ‘cancer’ story might be believed, so he once again spun his story to investigating detectives. But unlike his unfortunate female victims, the police had ways and means of blowing Sam’s stories out of the water.

They checked with Wright’s GP, only to be told that he hadn’t seen the ‘terminally ill’ Wright for years. Oh dear!

On 10 January 2015, a number of Wright’s victims sat in the public gallery of the Hobart Magistrate’s Court as he did the only decent thing he could and pleaded guilty to all 10 counts of obtaining goods by false pretences. Unfortunately, one victim was not in the gallery to witness Wright’s ignominious defeat; she had committed suicide before the police had a chance to lay charges. The death of that woman serves to add a terrible element to what was already a very grubby tale.

But we would like to think that those unfortunate women felt a certain amount of satisfaction when Wright appeared for sentence on 16 January 2015.

The defence lawyer appearing for Wright painted a picture of an unfortunate drug addicted man with an as yet undiagnosed mental illness. He told the court that his client was prepared to pay the $12,000 back to the women using his superannuation. Seems that the magistrate wasn’t buying the story, probably something to do with a previous conviction Wright had for defrauding his former employer, Australia Post, of $16,000.

In any event, he sentenced ‘love rat’ Samuel Raynor Wright to 9 months imprisonment, the last 3 months to be suspended on condition he be of good behaviour for 3 years. Take him down!

The Salvation Army are not very forgiving about being exposed as medals cheats. ANZMI only exposes those who thwart the traditions and protocols developed in the memory of Australian and New Zealand Veterans for more than a hundred years.  The Salvation Army in their bid to appear like Returned Veterans, and contrary to traditions, are happy to wear whatever they want, whenever they want. Below is a photograph from a Christmas Card that appeared Christmas 2015. The person in the photograph is Salvation Army Major (Retired) Peter Cary Wright

The medals that Wright wears are:

Salvation Army Long Service Medal

Order of Australia Medal

National Medal

Australian Defence Medal

Northern Territory(NT)  Tri Service Medal

The two offending medals are:

Salvation Army Long Service Medal. This is for Twenty Five years service with a gold star for each subsequent five years

NT Tri service medal.

Peter Carey and perhaps the Salvation Army  believes that his Salvation Army Long Service Award is more prestigious than the Order of Australia Medal (OAM) and the National Medal, as he wears the Salvation Army Medal  in the primary position. 

The two medals should be worn on the right breast and not mixed with Federal Medals

We work without fear of favour to report people who take it upon themselves to disrespect medals protocols.  

In recent times we have exposed other Salvation Army personnel who gave no regard to medals protocol, they are:

Nancarrow

Applebee

Ken and Jo Delamore

We know that the Salvos do good work in the Defence Force and in the community but we do not have credit and debit columns.  Those who wear more medals on their left breast than they have earned will be exposed and will remain on our web site.

The head "Honcho" of the Salvos is spending donated monies to shut us up and remove their offending members from our web site. Here is the top third of a letter from their Solicitors.

They also coerced a Deputy Secretary of the Department of Defence to support their legal action.  We are sure that the bureaucrat occupying the chair of  Deputy Director has never had to earn a medal the hard way, had that person done so, perhaps the attitude may be different.

If the Salvation Army want to wear medals on their left breasts, they must comply with traditions and protocols. Salvation Army people do not, and will not get special dispensation from ANZMI. Thousand of Australians have had to do unpleasant duty to qualify to wear medals. The vast majority comply with medals protocols, those who don't will earn the wrath of the Veteran Community by way of  ANZMI.

 

Hence we welcome Peter Carey Wright to our web site who also represents the recalcitrance of the Salvation Army.

Allan Wright of Manly is a fraud, liar and wannabe who for many years has fooled most of the people most of the time.

Here is an accolade to Wright that appeared in notes from a very prestigious club from the Manly area

 

Wright

 

He wears military medals indicating that he was a National Service Infantry Soldier who served in Vietnam. They are:

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM)

 

On his lapels he wears six badges one of which is the prestigious Infantry Combat Badge (ICB). He also wears the cap of a USA Marine Corps unit that served in Da Nang Vietnam on the cap, another ICB is also attached. In addition he wears the unit tie of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV). AATTV was the longest serving and most decorated Australian unit in Vietnam. They received 113 Awards including 4 Victoria Crosses.

 

See here: https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/U53430

 

On his right breast he wears World War 1 medals indicating he is the direct relative of a person who served in that war.

 

The truth is that Wright has never served in the Australian Defence Force and is a complete sham, who has deceived friends and acquaintances for many years.

 

Wright is well known in the Manly NSW area as a "Returned Veteran" and has been venerated for his service, however we are sure that many will have an entirely different opinion of him after reading this exposure.

 

Wright has indulged in criminal acts by Falsely claiming to be a Returned Veteran and for wearing medals that he did not earn. The Defence Act 1903 details a $3,300 fine or six months imprisonment or both for these offences. Unfortunately the NSW Police will not pursue these matters whilst other States Police do.

 

We ask that ex servicemen and the general public in the Manly NSW area keep a watch for Wright and if he appears wearing any kind of military apparel or medals he can again be reported to this website.

 

Wright has basked in the kudos of his false military history for many years and for his deceitful antics can reside on this website for many years to come.
