Country: Australia
State or Province: Victoria

Service: British Army
Branch: Infantry/Intelligence Corps
Commencement of service: Claims 1997

Case Notes:

 

Who is Major Moose Andrew Jokielehto? According to him, he is a UK Army Officer who works as an Intelligence Operative and claims involvement in the murky world of secret operations. Here is what he said to us:

"Served in the intelligence service under different identities which the UK authority's will never confirm or deny. My bona fides, work name and history are known to those close to me and involved in my work and employment. You asked my boss about China, indeed i did work there for a few years and learnt the language, i have operated and worked in the intelligence world and indeed with multiple Commando regiments and SF teams all over the globe and continue to do so today."



He claims to have earned six medals whilst serving as a UK Army Officer between 1997 and 2009. Here is what he wrote on an Application to join the RSL:



The medals he claims are:
Distinguished Service Medal (DSM)
Multinational Force and Observers Medal (MFO)
Four medals for overseas service in:
Northern Ireland
Sierra Leone
Iraq/Afghanistan
Lebannon/MEO

Regarding the DSM. That medal was withdrawn from issue in 1993 and as Jokielehto claims to have served between 1997 and 2009 he could not have earned it



He has a South African Passport number 55080133368 dated 1 April 2009 under the name of Jokielehto. The Passport shows that he was born in Salisbury, Rhodesia in 1974. He also has UK Passport number 800782318.

 



He has a UK Army ID Card with his photograph and the name and regimental details of a different UK Army Major



The regimental number and name (now erased) shown on the ID Card can be found in the London Gazette, but do not refer to an officer named Jokielehto and the person named has been contacted.

Here is what the Major, whose name Jokielehto has been using said:

"I have passed all of this to the appropriate office in the MoD. (UK Ministry of Defence). This is an MoD and possibly Police matter now. As i understand it, it is a criminal offence in Australia to impersonate a military officer. That’s all I can really do for now. I’ll let you know if i hear anything, but i am sure the MoD will be in touch with you".

He has a UK Army Certificate of Service, that cannot be verified by the London Gazette.



According to the London Gazette there is no person with those regimental details or name listed as ever having served as an officer in the UK Army. The London Gazette is available for all to read and lists all occurrences, including awards, appointments and promotions, of all UK Military Officers. Using the details shown on his "Certificated of Service" no person with the name Jokielehto or the regimental number of 386136 is mentioned. In any case as Jokielehto states that he served under a different name, it does not make sense that he would have a Certificate of Service under the name of Jokielehto.

We have other documents showing his use of the name Jokielehto since 2011.




He has resided in Australia since 2012 - 13 under the name of Moose Andrew Jokielehto and has a bank account under that name.

Claims to have attended Royal Military Academy Sandhurst (RMAS) in 1997 then served in the British Army until 2009. He has made this claim in various areas including a LinkedIn account. Here is an example of this claim



Have been advised by RMAS that he has never attended or graduated from that establishment.

"Dear Mr XXXXX,

Thank you for your e-mail.

We have no record of anyone named Jokielehto having passed through Sandhurst.

I hope this has been of some help.

Yours sincerely

Claims to have been a forward intelligence operative working in small teams in Afghanistan, Iraq, Northern Ireland and in Africa, China and Russia, North Korea. Claims to have worked in intelligence in Whitehall London, and with Special Reconnaissance Regiment (SRR) and 3rd Military Intelligence Regiment (3MIR).

Here are responses received from various Army Associations and Alumni from the UK.

"We have been in contact with the Intelligence Corps who can find no record of him".

"My initial inquires with the SAS Alumni on LinkedIn has the UK SRR alumni coming back saying they have never heard of either name and don’t have records of either person being involved with the unit. I’m still following up with the UK HQSF and other alumni’s in the UK."

'I have checked our trained database and there are no records for Moose Andrew Jokielehto".

Since 2009, when he claims to have departed the UK Army, he is known to have owned a private security company named Twenty Committee Risk Management, which was based in Helsinki, Finland. He moved the company to Malta and during that time is known to have worked in Sri Lanka, and the Maldives. He departed that Company in 2012 - 13 with accusations of fraudulent dealings.

He moved to Australia in 2012 - 13 where he currently resides in Shepparton, Victoria. He is a member of the Shepparton RSL, has marched on ANZAC Day and extols to his "Aussie" mates his murky "secret" work throughout the world.

He claims to have a UK Army reserve liability until 2029 and says he is returning to the UK next year as a UK Army Major to attend UK Army Staff College, which is an establishment that prepares UK Officers for higher rank.

Jokielehto was been contacted and asked to prove his bona fides as a retired British Army Major. He immediately became defensive and advised the following

"I told you from day one you would not get any where looking for a man called "Moose" for obvious reasons".

" other close ex service friends and loved ones know my work name, history and can vet and have done in under 5 minutes with the London Gazette and via proper channels.".

"I work and have worked in some of the most volatile and dangerous regions on the planet against some very nasty people over the years so forgive me for not wanting to spill my guts and life story to a complete stranger"

"For me, no matter, I'll simply change my handle from Moose to Badger, you can then waste your time and resources looking for him"
.

Although he purports his life to be that of a James Bond, he has no problem disclosing his secret service to those who will listen. He goes on drinking binges and acts badly, and, of course, blames Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for his bad behaviour.

He carries a Gerber Bear Grylls hidden stiletto blade on his belt, which he enjoys showing, along with his supposed training in hand to hand combat. He loves telling people how to knife an opponent. He is also an avid shooter and has a bolt action rifle at his house in Shepparton.

Jokielehto, to enhance his military background and Rhodesian lineage as shown in his Passport, makes the following claim about his father:



We have an information source from the Rhodesian Army Association (RAA) and in particular the Selous Scouts. Here are responses from Rhodesian Army Association and Military Trust. See here en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Selous_Scouts

"Ok my contact who has the full Rhodesian Army nominal roll, says that no one of that name ever served in the Rhodesian Army. The original Selous Scouts Armed Car unit was disbanded in 1963 at the break-up of the Rhodesia and Nyasaland federation. It was a Squadron in strength so it would never have had a Brigadier in charge. And the passport in question puts this fellow at 45 years old now, so his father would now be about 70-80. Even at 80 he would have been about 40 years old when Rhodesia became Zimbabwe – me-thinks a little young for a Brigadier in Selous Scouts. And if he was a Brigadier in the original Armed Car Selous Scouts he would have been 24 years old when the Squadron was disbanded. Say no more!"

"I served in the Rhodesian Army from January ’66 to April ’80, covering the full UDI period and I have never heard of any Officer, especially a Brigadier by the name of JOKIELEHTO"


We believe this man's name is Moose Andrew Jokielehto, who was born in Rhodesia and migrated to the UK in 1981, moved to Helsinki Finland, then to Malta and now resides in Australia, but everything about his UK Army service is false.

He did not attend RMAS in 1997.
He was never a Major in the UK Army.
Was never awarded the UK Distinguished Service Medal or the five other medals he claims.
Was never an Intelligence Officer in the UK Army.
Has never served in the UK SRR, 3MIR, SAS or Commandos.
Has never served with the UK Army in Afghanistan, Iraq, Northern Ireland and in Africa, China and Russia, North Korea.
Has never served as an Intelligence Officer in Whitehall London.
His father was never a Brigadier in the Rhodesian Army.
He has a false UK Army ID Card, and a false UK Army Certificate of Service.


If his real name is not Moose Andrew Jokielehto then he is in Australia under a false name, has a false passport, and operates a bank account under that false name. We are certain that one way or another Australian authorities will be interested in him.

If his name is really Moose Andrew Jokielehto then many people, and especially veterans in the UK and Australia will be very interested in him, in relation to his false claims of military service

Since we have commenced this investigation we have become aware of numerous people who are aggrieved and hurt at being duped by Jokielehto. Jokielehto is a con man of considerable skill. Wherever he goes he sows seeds of having a secret service life.

In Shepparton he went one bridge to far and was reported to us. We hope those of similar organizations to ours in the UK will read this and provide further information about this ultimate wannabe.

Case Notes:

 

Patrick GOSS was born in 1936. According to him, in 1950, at the age of 14 years, he enlisting into the Australian Army as National Serviceman, then served in South and North Korea for two and a half years and to this day holds the rank of Lieutenant Colonel in the Australian Army.



As a result of his Army service he wears five medals from foreign countries.

When he returned from North Korea he pursued education in Victoria and attained six university degrees.

In 1973, he had a gun held at his head by a "Colonel Joseph PAUL" in Hobart, and was forced to enlist in Australia Secret Intelligence Service, (ASIS). At the age of 83 years he is still on the ASIS payroll and has an officer underneath the Australian War Memorial where he works from time to time.

Because of his many years service with Australia Secret Intelligence Service (ASIS) none of his service history is available and will not be available until 50 years after his demise

In 2017 when GOSS moved to his current residence in Tasmania, he wrote a three page letter to all other residents in his street. Here are excerpts from the letter.

 

 



Jungles of North Korea?

In addition to his raft of degrees "Dr" Goss is also a practicing Psychiatrist and signed the letter to his neighbours as such. Below are further excerpts from his social media relating to his military rank and government work.



No trace of GOSS can be found on the Department of Veterans Nominal Roll for Korea, that is because he either never served in the "jungles of North Korea" as a fourteen year old boy, or, has been a ASIS operator for forty six years and his records are "sealed".

GOSS was contacted by a researcher and quite happily extolled his life history and details of his "secret service" and his secret office under the Australian War Memorial.

We are happy to state that he is a systematic liar, and we are pleased to include him as such on this website

Service: New Zealand Defence Force
Case Notes:

 

Trevor WILLIAMS works in NSW Prisons system, which provides him with a uniform to wear eight medals on his left breast. On his right breast he wears a further seven medals of which six would have been awarded to a direct New Zealand relative of Williams. The seventh medal on his right breast has not be identified.


Only three of the fifteen medals he wears are to be worn on the left breast. The remaining twelve belong either on his right breast, or in the garbage bin. Here are details of the eight medals on his left breast.



Here is what they are:

1. The New Zealand Special Service Medal (Erebus) New Zealand - Entitled

2. The New Zealand Defence Service Medal with clasp REGULAR New Zealand - Entitled.

3. The National Medal Australia Official Civilian Honour - Entitled

4. NSW Corrective Services Medal Australia State Award 15yrs service in the NSW Prison
Service. State award to be worn on the right breast.

5. 150th Anniversary of NZ Army Medal. - Unofficial commemorative "Tin" medal must
not be worn on left breast.

6. The International Prison Service Medal. - Unofficial commemorative "Tin"
medal not to be worn on left breast.


7. US Antarctic Service Medal. Williams had no USA Defence service in Antarctica and
has no entitlement to wear


8. The UK Commemorative two year "in uniform" - British service "Tin" Medal not to be
worn on left breast

By wearing fifteen medals Williams would appear to the general public, as a military veteran with lots of hard service, when in fact his three medals reflect only peacetime service in New Zealand and Australia.

One of the three medals, the Erebus medal, is for the tragic Mount Erebus, Air New Zealand disaster in Antarctica , for his service at the Mortuary, Auckland University School of Medicine, Auckland NZ. He was not deployed to Antarctica with the clean up team, and was presented with the medal for his service in NZ for that event.

The medals on his right breast are those of a relative, and may only be worn on commemorative occasions.

Because of the five "Tin" medals that he wears on his left breast, Williams has now been awarded the honour of appearing on this website.

Case Notes:

Iain Booth was born on the 25 April, 1949. In 1967, he enlisted in the Royal Australian Navy as a Cadet Midshipman. In the following years he progressed to Sub Lieutenant. He is a Medals Cheat and a false pretender. Booth wears seven medals. He is entitled to wear four.

Booth1jpg 2018 02 08

Booth1Ajpgjpg 2018 02 08

In the above 2017 Remembrance Day photograph, taken at Angeles City, near Manilla, Phillipines, Booth is wearing the following medals.

1. The Australian Active Serve Medal - (AASM) Entitled.2. Vietnam Medal. (VM) Not entitled
3. Vietnam Logistic and Support Medal. – (VLSM) Entitled.
4. Australian Service Medal. (ASM) Entitled
5. Australian Defence Medal. (ADM)Entitled.
6. U.S Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, with a "Combat V clasp. Not entitled.
7. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (RVCM) Not entitled.

Concerns were raised by individuals in Australia and the Phillippines, regarding Australian military medals worn by Booth. He also falsely claimed service on HMAS Hobart, a Royal Australian Navy Destroyer, in June, 1968. ANZMI are in possession of signed statements of fact in regards to lies told by Booth regarding Hobart service, at the time he claims. .

It appears that the medals he wears are not consistent with his actual RAN service. In particular, the VM and the VLSM cannot be worn together. You are issued with one or the other. He has been warned in writing several times by RSL Sub Branch Executives about not conforming with medals protocols and wearing medals he is not entitled to. Booth also made other comments to others about his alleged RAN service that are false.

ANZMI then researched the public records, regarding the Royal Australian Navy career of Ian Booth, as he was known then, and arrived at the same conclusion. He has since changed his first name to "Iain."

ANZMI then communicated with Mr Iain Booth and asked him for a summary of his Naval service and the medals that he wears. His response, inter alia, is below -;

I readily concede that there has been an error in my medal issue and that the VLSM cannot be issued with the Vietnam Medal, but the fact that my medals were all issued and named to me is not my error and I therefore feel that I am entitled to wear them. It would be less than prudent to knowingly wear medals that were supposedly not issued together (unless in error) as this would doubtlessly bring into question my entitlement.

Following that idiotic statement, we believe that Booth not only lives in another country, he lives on another planet.

We should all be glad that the Department of Defence did not send him a Victoria Cross in “error”. With Booth’s view on medals protocol, he would have had that medal court mounted and worn as well, claiming that he is entitled to wear it, as "it was not his error!"

The three medals that Booth and ANZMI know that he is not entitled to wear, are the Vietnam Medal (VM), the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (RVCM) and the United States Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal, with clasp.

1. The Vietnam Medal.


Booth2 2018 02 08



Qualification requirement
Australia

• 28 days in ships or craft on inland waters or off the coast of Vietnam.
• One or more days on the posted strength of a unit or formation on land.
• One operational sortie over Vietnam or Vietnamese water by aircrew on the posted strength of a unit.
• Official visits either continuous or aggregate of 30 days.
• One day or more by members of accredited philanthropic organisations attached to Australian forces in an official capacity for full-time duty. between 29 May 1964 and 27 January 1973.

2. The Republic of Vietnam Medal.

Australia

The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal was awarded to Australian military personnel for service in South Vietnam during the period 31 July 1962 to 28 March 1973. The requirements for the award are: at least 181 days service, either continuous or aggregated, unless killed on active service (KIA); or wounded in action (includes psychological injury)[9] and evacuated (medically evacuated other than being wounded does not meet requirement for medal); or captured and later released or escaped.

Booth blames the Department of Defence for “the error”. He knows that it is wrong, but he fraudulently had the medals court mounted, and wears them on official occasions illegally. If you believe his suspect story that the medals were sent to him "in error". why didn't he just return them.

ANZMI asked Booth if he did actually serve in Vietnam, what period he served, what ship or ships he was a crew member of, and what medals was he actually entitled to? He stated that he was unable to recall unless he looked through his records, that were in a garage somewhere in Australia. After two further requests, Booth did not give any specific details of his Vietnam service, other than to respond "that there are other ships I served on in the operational area."


The below Vietnam War Service Certificate issued, purportedly by the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA), indicates that Booth served in Vietnam Waters for 413 days. It lists the following ships that Booth allegedly served on in Vietnam during the qualifying period 1962 to 1973..
1. HMAS Sydney
2. HMAS Parramatta.
3. HMAS Yarra
4. HMAS Hobart
5. CINPAC. (Commander in Chief Pacific)


Booth4AA 2018 02 08 2


The certificate is false. It is a forgery. Only one person could benefit from this forged document. The person who submitted it to the Angeles City RSL Sub Branch.

This certificate was with other documentation submitted to the Angeles City RSL Sub Branch, by Booth, when Booth applied to transfer his membership from Hornsby RSL Sub Branch, Sydney, in November, 2016.. We know that the information that appears on this certificate is false. His name does not appear on any of the published lists of crew members, for the three, 6 month deployments to Vietnam by Hobart.

We have signed statements from members of the Angeles City RSL Sub Branch and Hornsby RSL Sub Branch, detailing that Booth claims that he was on Hobart when it was damaged by 3 missiles from a U.S.A.F aircraft.

This incident occurred on the 17 June, 1968. Two crew members were killed and others injured. Extensive damage was sustained by Hobart and we can all be thankful that there was no greater loss of life to our young men.

Booth, according to his official Navy Record, was posted on Parramatta at that time, and was nowhere near Vietnam as he has claimed. Parramatta was in Singapore Harbour undergoing lengthy repairs, when Booth deceitfully claims he was part of Hobart's crew.


Booth4B


Strangely, the only current Vietnam War Service Certificate for Booth on the DVA Website appears below. There is no mention of ships that Booth served on or dates served.

Vietnam War Service

Veteran Details
Name BOOTH, Ian Montgomery
Service Royal Australian Navy
Service Number O2407
Rank Sub-Lieutenant
Honours None for display


Something is amiss.

ANZMI then received another communication from Booth, where he stated that he served on the following ships on operational service in Vietnam.
-;

Might I suggest that you check my service in the following ships -

HMAS Sydney 1967, 1968
HMAS Parramatta 1968
HMAS Yarra 1969
USS Brinkley Bass 1970
HMAS Sydney 1970 -1971


He does not mention Hobart on this occasion. He also knows that he has been caught out in regards to serving 181 days on Hobart, when it was stationed on the Gun Line, to qualify for the VM and the VCM. He has now substituted Hobart with the USS Brinkley Bass, a United States Navy Destroyer, that served on and off in Vietnam waters for short periods in 1970. According to our research, Booth was never attached to that ship for any period of time. There are no records of him serving on that ship.

He also claims Vietnam service on HMAS Yarra 1969. Yarra did not have qualifying operational service in Vietnam in 1969. It escorted the Aircraft Carrier HMAS Sydney to Vung Tau, Vietnam in the last week of February, 1970. (Ships Record of Proceedings)

We know that Booth did not spend 413 days in the qualifying area of Vietnam, as indicated on his false certificate. He is not entitled to wear the Vietnam medal or the Vietnam Campaign Medal. (181 days or more) His Certificate of Vietnam Service, allegedly issued by the Department of Veterans Affairs is a lie, and Booth knows it.

His National Archives Australia Naval records, indicate that he was posted to the Sydney when it travelled to Vung Tau Harbour, Vietnam, on the 27 December, 1967. The ship arrived at 0700 hours that date and left at 1450hrs. A total of about 8 hours. However, qualifying time is accredited from the time the ship left the last Australian Port of Fremantle until its return to Australia 14 days later. His records disclose that he was also a crew member of Sydney when it sailed to Vietnam in late January, 1968 and spent 7 hours in Vung Tau Harbour on the 3 February, 1968.

Also Booths Naval Record indicates that he was on Parramatta between March and July, 1968. On 9 April, 1968. Parramatta visited Vung Tau Harbour for 9 hours escorting Sydney.

It appears then, that Booth deployed on Sydney in December 1967 and February. 1968, to Vung Tau Harbour and then on Parramatta in April, 1968. That being the case, he is entitled to wear the AASM, and the VLSM for those three trips and accumulated 24 hours in the port of Vung Tau..

He is not entitled to wear the Vietnam medal or the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.


Booth6jpg 2018 02 08 2


The above medal that he wears between the ADM and the VCM is the United States Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal. Booth has added the "Combat V" clasp to the medal that he wears. The medal is awarded for -;

The (U.S) Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal may be awarded to any person who, while serving in any capacity with the Navy or Marine Corps (including foreign military personnel), distinguishes himself/herself by heroic or meritorious achievement or service. To merit this award, the acts or services must be accomplished or performed in a manner above that normally expected and sufficient to distinguish the individual above those performing similar services as set forth in the following -;

For Meritorious Achievement. Outstanding and worthy of special recognition,

For Meritorious Service. Outstanding and worthy of special recognition, but not to the degree required for the Bronze Star Medal or Air Medal when combat is involved or the Meritorious Service Medal or Air Medal when combat is not involved.

For Acts of Heroism. Worthy of special recognition, but not to the degree required for the Bronze Star Medal when combat is involved or the Navy and Marine Corps Medal when combat is not involved.

No records exist of Booth having been awarded the United States Navy and Marine Corps Commendation Medal. Sadly, he has purchased this medal and awarded to himself..

ANZMI sent Booth an email inquiring about his claim to the United States Navy and Marine Corps Commendation medal with the Combat V clasp. His response was that he was never awarded a Commendation Medal.

From Booth February 2018 -

"I'm a little confused regarding your statement about my being awarded a Commendation Medal. I have never been awarded one. Perhaps you can enlighten me as to the origin of this"..

We certainly agree with Booth, that "he has never been awarded the medal and clasp" in question. Memory failure perhaps? We think not.

We also have statements from RSL members that Booth has claimed that he was a crew member of the RAN Submarine HMAS Onslow. We know that he underwent Submarine Training, but he was never posted as a crew member to Onslow or any other RAN Submarine. Again, no records exist regarding this claim.


Booth7 2018 02 08 2


For his accumulated 24 hours in Vung Tau Harbour, Vietnam, Booth wears 5 medals. He is entitled to 2. The Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) and the Vietnam Logistic and Support Medal (VLSM) He is also entitled to the Australian Service Medal (ASM) with clasp (FESR) for Far East Strategic Reserve Duty and the Australian Defence Medal. (ADM)

By his own admission, Booth is a Medal Cheat and a False Pretender. His membership for the Angeles City RSL Sub Branch should be cancelled. He also owes them an explanation and an apology. He is a fraud.

Case Notes:

 

According to ex RAAF Corporal Neil Thomas O'Halloran, soon after he joined the Defence Force, at the time of the Vietnam war, he was specially selected to be seconded to the Army for secret operations in Cambodia.

Ohallran



He is not listed on the Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans and cannot produce evidence of his secondment and advises that it was all very secret.

For his Defence service, O'Halloran wears all the medals of a Vietnam Veteran. They are:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) Not entitled
Vietnam Medal (VM) Not entitled
Defence Force Service Medal (DFSM)
Defence Service Medal
Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) Not entitled

Of the five medals he wears, he is entitled to only two, and they represent service in Australia. He was never deployed overseas during his service.

In recent years O'Halloran created a high profile for himself and became President of the RAAF Association in Toowoomba. To further raise his profile he applied to join the Toowoomba Branch of the Vietnam Veterans Association Australia (VVAA). His application was rejected because he could not produce evidence of his "secret" Vietnam service.

O'Halloran is not listed on the Department of Veterans Affairs, Vietnam Nominal Roll and his actual service is well known in Toowoomba by various ex service organizations.

On Remembrance Day on 11 November 2018, Toowoomba veterans became nonplussed, when after being unable to substantiate his claims of service in Vietnam O'Halloran wore Vietnam Medals.

O'Halloran also falsely claimed to have attained the rank of Warrant Officer during his time in the RAAF. In fact after many years service he attained the rank of a Corporal Motor Transport Driver (MTD), who was never deployed overseas.

O'Halloran's behaviour, is similar to Gunther Hentscher of Kingaroy Queensland an RAAF Corporal Dental Assistant, who increased his rank to Squadron Leader and wore fake Vietnam Medals, see here: anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/medal-cheats/659-hentscher

Toowoomba Veterans and Veterans Australia wide are now more vigilant than ever before to identify those who falsely represent their Defence Service.

O'Halloran has ruined his reputation and is no longer the President of the Toowoomba RAAF Association. He is well suited for an executive position on our website.

Murray Doyle is an Australian Merchant Marine Captain who wears two medals:

Doyle



His medals are:

Australian Antarctic Medal (AAM)
Unknown Merchant Marine Medal

He was awarded the AAM by the Australian Government for outstanding service in support of Antarctic expeditions.

The second medal is a non official commemorative medal that must not be worn on the left breast with the official medal. If it is to be worn at all, it must be worn on the right breast.

The Australian Merchant Marine Association advise that they follow Australian Government and Returned and Services League protocols in relation to wearing medals.

Members of the Merchant Marine Association are aware of medals convention and like their Defence Force colleagues will not tolerate blatant disregard of traditions.

We welcome Murray Patrick Doyle aboard the good ship ANZMI.
