Case Notes:

 

Tevor is the Vice President of the Northam WA, Sub Branch of the Returned and Services League (RSL). Below he is shown doing his duty on Remembrance Day 11 Nov 2019.



Craine is a Navy Veteran who served on HMAS Sydney during the 1st Gulf War in 1990/1991. Like quite a few other errant matelots, Craine wears one extra medal with his four genuine medals. His fourth medal is the official Saudi Arabian Liberation of Kuwait medal which has been approved for wear by the Governor General of Australia

The offending medal is the fifth one nearest his left shoulder.



Here is the official Honours and Awards policy regarding this medal

Any person smart enough to be an RSL Vice President, must be smart enough to be able to follow the simple rules of medals protocol. Perhaps he feels a little more important when he wears the extra medal. Unfortunately his personal kudos is less than the derision he deserves from the veteran community.

Craine will not be lonely aboard the good ship ANZMI, as he has quite a few Gulf War shipmates aboard, who have also deigned to wear the medal.
