Case Notes:

 

Neville Barrett did a lot of hard work during the 375 days he served with the 4th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment in Vietnam

 

Barrett

 

For his service he earned five medals and a Badge.  He wears five medals, but one is a fake, one is missing, one is a fake and an Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) is missing.

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) - (Missing from his rack)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal - Out of order should be last medal

Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM) (Out of order should be second last medal on rack)

Front Line Medal (FLM) - (Self purchased vanity medal must not be worn)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM) (worn out of order should precede the ANSM and RVCM)

Infantry Combat Badge (ICB)- (Missing)

 

The offending medal is the FLM that is a self purchased, meaningless piece of junk that has no place mixed with genuine medals on the left breast. He is not wearing an AASM which should precede all his other medals.

 

The FLM medal is sold by Medal Dealers for $60.

Instead of the FLM, Barrett is entitled to wear the prestigious Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) which is the official badge that differentiates those who served as Infantrymen on combat duties.

Rather than wear the prestigious ICB, Barrett has chosen to wear a worthless self purchased trashy $60 FLM.

 

Although Neville Barrett did "the hard yards" in Vietnam he has earned a place on this web site for blatant disrespect to medals protocols
