For his service he wears five medals. He is entitled to only four. The offending medal is the non authorized Front Line Medal (FLM) that he wears as the last medal on his rack. Here is the medal:

Woodward claims that the medal was awarded to him by the Australian Government. That is not true he would have purchased the medal himself and had it fitted to his rack.

It is unfortunate the Victor Harbour Returned and Services League (RSL) takes no interest in medals Protocol. Woodward should have been advised of his error by an executive during the commemorative ceremony at Victor Harbour on Remembrance Day 11 November 2018.

We welcome Roy Woodward to a space on this website.
