Kenneth Duncan spent almost Thirty Five years as an Army Reserves soldier and since his discharge has spent many years as a Army Cadets Officer.

He is wearing:

Reserve Forces Medal

National Medal

Australian Defence Medal

Emergency Services Medal - Self Purchased civilian "Tin" medal

You would think that after that amount of service he has had he would have enough sense to wear only the medals that have been issued to him.   Unfortunately he has chosen to add a self purchased civilian "Tin" medal to his three genuine medals.

This is the offending medal:

The medal is an Emergency Services, self purchased unofficial medal.

During his Army Reserve service he attained the rank of Warrant Officer First Class, with a posting of Regimental Sergeant Major.  That position includes being guardian of ceremony, traditions and protocols.  He now holds a Cadet Officer's Commission, with the rank of Captain. The rank has no standing  outside of the Cadet's organisation.

To many tacking on an unauthorised medal  would be judged as too minor to be entered on our website, but as far as we are concerned if the medal was not issued to you by the Federal Government it must not be worn.  We will enter medals cheats whether they are wearing one false medal or ten.

As an ex Regimental Sergeant Major, Kenneth Duncan should have known better, but obviously his vanity got the better of him and he succumbed to adding a bit of "bling" to make his medal rack a little bit longer.

Welcome to the website Kenneth Duncan.
