Case Notes:


Paul Jenkyn - Got a surprise when he was leaving  the Navy.

In this exposure we ask you to be the judge, we will give no opinion one way or the other. A less than open organization, may well tell Jenkyn to go to hell, and accept the fact that he has been caught telling lies, and decided to tell an even bigger lie to cover his tracks. We however will not say such a thing.

Jenkyn-1

Jenkyn-2

Above is a present day photograph and a photograph from when he was a young sailor.

At a Vietnam Veterans Counselling Service, Lifestyle Course on the Sunshine Coast, he introduced himself as an ex Navy Clearance Diver who changed to Special Air Services Regiment (SASR) who had been deployed to Somalia and Rwanda and was involved in the SASR tragic Blackhawk Helicopter accident at High Range in the Townsville area of Queensland on the 12 June 1996.  

For a bit of extra passion he included that he held his dying mate after the accident until he took his last breath.  When asked about his Rwanda service he could answer none of the questions about the deployment and said it was because “of being in “hides” and taking out high ranking targets with snipers”. His knowledge of Somalia was equally as vague and he could not answer any questions posed.

It is known that Jenkyn had been telling his wife tales of his “Deployments” for the whole ten years they had been together.

As well as spruiking at the Lifestyle Course he also committed his “Deployments” in writing on his Facebook page:  See below:

Jenkyn-3

Jenkyn-4

During the Lifestyle Course, and on his facebook page, he was questioned about his “stories” and he realized that his deception would no longer serve.

The nub of his problem was that he claims, he was hiding the real reason for his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder “PTSD” and in fairness we present his alternative story.

Below you will read that on the last or second last day of his service in the Navy, he was raped by another “Sailor” before being cast adrift.  Read on:

“After receiving a phone call from your organisation yesterday the following is a post from my wife on a support for PTSD s on Face book & quot (sic);

So thankfully things have been going really well at home over the past few weeks... until today. Some guy rang Paul from ANZMI about people saying things that weren't true about their military service. Paul again went through the whole thing, dragged up the past, talked about what had happened to him and why this story developed. Apparently this guy just laughed at him.

(Note: Unfortunately the ANZMI Investigator did “snigger’, but only once, and that was when Jenkyn stated that DVA would not accept his compensation claim because the rape did not occur during working hours. For this peccadillo, the ANZMI investigator has been given anti sniggering counseling)

Of course Paul got so angry. What do you expect? I can understand why these people may be upset with people that do this stuff but they're friggin' insensitive and nieve (sic) if they think that all stories are the same and these guys are bad people. We talk about supporting people with a mental illness, not shaming them. People that then decide that shaming is the best action are immatture (sic) and just showing that they are just as emotionally immature as those they are attacking
 
Even worse though is that they are doing it with the arrogance of entitlement and defence.

So if I told you all I was a model or Doctor or some other prestigious occupation to cover up the fact that I felt so shit about myself because I was raped would you all shame me?

It's such a massive kick in the pants. 4 weeks ago he was close to suicide. I was going mental and so worried about how I would tell our daughter that Daddy wasn't around. My heart was breaking when xxxxxx was telling me that Daddy was going somewhere and not coming back.

I was close to suicide because I just couldn't cope anymore. The only thing keeping me alive was my daughter. I didn't really care what happened to me. I just wanted this circus, this anger and craziness to end. I have since turned a corner. I have done another course with VVCS, got heaps of support for myself and it's been only a few weeks that I'm waking up feeling happy, happy to be alive, just that spontaneous kind of happy that I haven't felt in years.

Much of this is also due to watching Paul turn things around. He's been through a massive cathartic time, a time to reassess his values and fight for what he wants. He's thrown himself into therapy, and this time the consistent therapy he needs, with weekly appointments, exercising and really trying. It's been a thrill to watch him grow and face his demons, and his vulnerability... now this dickhead that rang today apparently just sniggered and laughed at Paul when he poured his heart out.

His story is one he's kept to himself for nearly 20 years and I know that his main reason for pushing on, for staying alive is me, and xxxxx. Now that's not friggin fair. Paul hasn't deliberately hurt anyone.

Yes he has a poison toungue (sic) at time which is charged with so much anger from so much pain he's capable of flying off the handle at anyone, and as much as I understand that is PTSD. He hasn't molestered (sic) anyone, or a murderer or a criminal, he hasn't ripped off anyone or got anything he wasn't entitled too.

He was just trying to save face when inside he felt like absolute shit about some terrible abuse he copped on his last day in the Navy. Enough of my ranting, but probably a positive one in that I'm actually proud of my husband here.

A guy who's doing his best with the hand he's been delt (sic)... it's just a shame that there's insensitive arseholes out there that must have such a shit life that all they want to do is to make someone else's miserable to make them feel better.... Now I will have my say. As I can see from your website you do not have the guts to provided any contact phone numbers. But thus will not be an issues for me .

I will be reporting you Monday morning to DVA, VVCS, DART the Police for harassment   and will be discussing this issue with my legal council. You have this agenda to find imposters, and I understand that cause.

You don't not represent the Government in any capacity. And to have Bill who called me laughing at me as I tried to explain that I was brutally raped on my last day of service and need an excuse to show sympathy for my aggressive outbursts is utterly deplorable. You have know idea on the ramifications this phone call has had on me but as Bill said yesterday , he does not care.

I have never been to an Anzac parade since 1986 out of disgust by the way I was treated by the ADF on my last day of service. I have cleared my name on the &quot s=(sic);Help a digger make a call&quot (sic);  

Face book page telling all what had happened to me and that is the end of it. The feed back I have received from FB is you are a pack of faceless trolls.  You take me on and I have more resources and time available to make it my mission in life to hold you accountable for my mental well being. I didn't ask to be drugged and raped on my second last day of service. I have suffered enough over 20 yrs of denial and shame.

So have some guts and provide the full name of this person who phoned me yesterday , your address and phone number so the authorities can find you in 5 mins as opposed to 30 min

I closing, go to hell”

Even a cursory read of Jenkyn’s letter will show that it was not written by his wife as he has botched up his personal pronouns.

For at least ten years Jenkyn has been “an heroic returned veteran” and when caught out, he diverted to plan “B”.

One may well think that Jenkyn invented the bizarre rape story to explain his ten years of lies and deception about being a Navy Clearance Diver, and a Special Air Service Trooper, who saw active service.

Jenkyn is currently pushing a compensation claim through DVA.  We believe the alleged rapist has been named, but it’s a pity that the accused person has passed on and cannot refute Jenkyn’s allegations.

Jenkyn has been lying about his service for ten years and when caught out, has produced a bizarre alternative story.

The evidence showing Jenkyn to be a lying, fraud and a wannabe for ten years is irrefutable.

As far as his rape story is concerned, we let you be the judge.

There is no need for a hasty decision, as it envisaged that Jenkyn will remain here for a long time.

Case notes:

Medal Cheats and Wannabes are fairly easy to detect. They are easily identifiable by their peers, particularly in the Military because the Wannabe is usually the loud mouth, know it all who wears honours and awards they are not entitled to and attempt to create a persona they have no right to claim. Our website is full of these characters.

While ANZMI tend to only investigate ‘military imposters’, every now and then a case comes along involving someone in the Emergency Services whose stupidity and arrogance is such that we could not refuse to investigate the case.

This the story of Len Carter, AFSM a senior member of the NSW Rural Fire Service who has come to our attention by wearing a plethora of fake ‘tin’ medals and worse, a specialist badge only able to be worn by uniformed members of the United States Armed Forces.

Here are a selection of images of Mr Len Carter, AFSM (as he likes to be called):



The problem that confronted our researcher who was looking into the case was the fact that every photo has him wearing a different medal rack so identifying the ‘tin’ has not been easy, but we were able to pin most of them down.

It is probably easier to start with the medals we believe he is entitled to wear.

Left Breast
Australian Fire Service Medal (AFSM)
National Medal

Right Breast
NSW Rural Fire Service Medal (plus clasps for years of service)
NSW Rural Fire Service Commendation for Service
Year of the Volunteer Medal

And now to the rest…On the left breast, Carter displays the following:



Left Breast
QE2 Dimond Jubilee Medal (NO Entitlement) – not accepted for general wear by the Australian Government
QE2 Golden Jubilee Medal (NO Entitlement)
Foreign Service Medal (Tin)
AFSM (Entitled see above)
National Medal (Entitled see above)
National Defence Medal (Tin)
Cadet Forces Medal (Tin)

Right Breast:
NSW Rural Fire Service Medal (plus clasps for years of service)
Unknown (Tin)
Year of the Volunteer Medal
NSW Rural Fire Service Commendation for Service
Unknown (Tin)
Unknown (Tin)


In one of the images, Carter is seen wearing an unknown neck decoration, we have tried to identify it and there are a number of possibilities including the Maltese Cross of Order of St John , a popular choice among Wannabes already on our website.

'Tin' is the generic term we at ANZMI use to describe any unofficial commemorative medal that can be purchased rather than issued by the Federal or State Government, recognised philanthropic organisation or Foreign Government (and approved for wear by the Governor General of Australia). There are a number of organisations that 'create' a commemorative medal specific to the needs of that organisation but they are NOT official medals and should never be mixed with Officially sanctioned and properly issued medals.

Examples of the ‘Tin’ being worn by Carter are seen above. These type of ‘medals’ are becoming harder to find in Australia, but they are still very much in circulation overseas. While the above are predominately designed to align with service in a Defence Force, however further research indicates they could ‘loosely’ be linked to Emergency Services as well.

For example, the ‘award criteria’ for the Foreign Service Medal states:



Note the line The Medal is to commemorate overseas service in both War and Peace, that has not been recognised by any award’. We know that Carter has traveled extensively overseas attending numerous firefighting related events, but we don’t believe that constitutes foreign service in any shape or form. In any event, as a representative of the NSW Rural Fire Service, he has already been awarded the National Medal, NSW RFS Medal and not to mention the Australian Fire Service Medal (AFSM).

In truth, the only real criteria for the award of these ‘medals’ is to have a valid credit card or PayPal account.

In some of the images, Carter can be seen wearing two of the medals awarded to recognise the Golden and Diamond Jubilees of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Both are genuine medals but neither medal is approved for wear by Australians, except for a small select number approved by the Governor General. When approved for issued by The Queen, the medals were awarded across the Commonwealth to the Defence Forces, Emergency Service personnel and numerous others. However, Australian governments at the time decided not to accept the awards, other than for a select group of citizens.

The select few who are authorised include winners of the Victoria Cross, George Cross, Cross of Valour (Australia) and State Governors. Mr Len Carter, AFSM does not qualify and should not be wearing these ribbons/medals.



Len Carter, AFSM does not limit his wearing of illegal medals to his RFS duties, he is also a member of the local Light Horse
Re-enactment Group. Not surprisingly, he has a different rack for this role. We wonder how he keeps up with what medals to wear when and why.



Now to the matter of improper use of Military Badges.

On the left breast, above the medal racks, Carter can be seen wearing the prestigious Master Explosive Ordnance Disposal Badge. He has absolutely no entitlement to this award.

 



There can be no reason or excuse to explain why Carter has decided to wear this badge on his RFS uniform, other than to portray the image of a person highly trained in explosive ordnance disposal (EOD). As may current and former service personnel know, EOD work is one of the most highly dangerous roles that can be undertaken, and EOD operators make up a high percentage of modern day battle casualties.

For Carter, for whatever reason, to wear this badge is offensive to the veteran community. Notwithstanding the fact he has no military service that we can find, the Master EOD Badge he wears can only be awarded to qualified members of the United States Armed Forces only.

Yes, Carter is a wannabe and the fact that he wears medals, badges and bling that is either not authorised or simply tin rubbish is bad enough but the fact that he does so while wearing the uniform of the NSW Rural Fire Service is of serious concern to ANZMI and should concern the Commissioner of the NSW RFS.

The NSW RFS is made up of volunteers who desire to protect their communities from the threats of bush fire and natural disaster. Many volunteers are young and impressionable men and women who would generally expect that a senior officer of the RFS wearing a chest full of medals and badges has the ‘runs on the board’ so to speak to justify the wearing of those awards.

Carter is not that sort of leader. He has chosen to embellish his uniform with tin rubbish and stolen the valour of the United Stated Armed Forces EOD personnel.

Cater was awarded the Australian Fire Service Medal (AFSM), a prestigious medal of no small significance in 2004. He should be satisfied that by granting him that award, his country is acknowledging his service with the RFS. If he thinks so little of that award that he chooses to mix it in with cheap, fake medals then he should return the AFSM immediately. Better still, perhaps the RFS could move to have the AFSM taken from Cater because of his offensive and illegal behaviour.

It is fortuitous for Carter that he is unlikely to be prosecuted for his actions. The Defence Act 1903 does have provision to prosecute for the improper use of service badges, but as the EOD badge is an American award, it is unlikely that a successful prosecution could be achieved.

Carter will have to be judged in the Court of Public Opinion by his peers and those who read this report. If one of those who read this is the Commissioner of the NSW RFS, perhaps he could take the appropriate action to ensure that the RFS uniform is not belittled by persons wearing unauthorised badges and bling and take action to remove Len Cater, AFSM from positions of responsibility in the Rural Fire Service.

Calum McNaught of Perth Western Australia has been caught out, by one of the thousands of ex service persons who work to ensure that the ex service and veteran communities are not polluted by frauds and liars.


Here is the blather that McNaught put forward, about his "service" resulting in his self proclaimed Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).



Here is one of the observations from a genuine veteran



McNaught realised he was caught red handed and decided to "fess up" to his deceit.


Now days, falsely claiming heroic, or any kind of false military service, includes the danger of being exposed as a liar and a cheat.

Those who have experienced the rigours of military service, in particular, those who have been deployed to war zones are watching for rogues. Those like McNaught who are reported will have their deceit published for the whole world to read.

UPDATE "ADMIRAL" Peter Cowell - JUNE 2020


This bloody idiot is still at it, with his mythical organization named International Search and Rescue (IntSAR) which in reality, can be associated with the children's puppet show "THUNDERBIRDS".


IntSAR is an impossible to achieve organization, dreamed up by a delusional, ex delivery driver, who on occasion wears a uniform, very similar to an Australian Navy Admiral. He not only dresses for the part, but he also lives the part. He doesn't often wear his uniform, but he makes sure, his Admiral's hat can be seen in the rear window of his car,


The hat, the ribands and badges he wears, are all false. He is the very model of a fake and shoddy Navy Admiral.

Since our first exposure of Cowell in 2014, a steady trickle of reports have been received detailing his actions and antics. With financial help of a charitable organization, he was residing in a caravan park in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), then moved to Bathurst New South Wales, and now resides at The Rocks, 200 km west of Sydney, NSW.

Notice that on his IntSar LinkedIn website, www.intsar.org/leadership/officer-comand...s/bio-official-photo , Cowell describes himself as "Admiral", however whilst living in the bush in NSW 200 Km from the coast he is not living the lifestyle of an "international Coordinator by appointment, to the IntSAR Commission", and a "Diplomatic and proud member of the Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers".


Appointments are available for recruits interested in joining his "crew". He describes IntSar On the latest IntSar Facebook page.


On his IntSar Facebook page he also promotes the following "Related Categories":

RELATED CATEGORIES
• Abortion service
• Addiction service
• Alternative and holistic health service
• Disability service
• Emergency rescue service
• Healthcare Administrator
• Home healthcare service
• Mental health service
• Nursing agency
• Orthotics and prosthetics service
• Reproductive service

In addition he claims alliance with dozens of organization throughout the world, including: Rescue of stray cats in the UK and affiliation with the Fire Department of Harlem New York

 



Although Cowell dresses like an Admiral, and admirably promotes his organization, he is not an Admiral's boot lace. IntSar, his organization, has no credence. He is a person with delusions of grandeur and the ability to lie without constraint.

Cowell would have the world believe he is an Admiral and a member of the International intelligence community. Here is an extract from his web site:

"Today, as an IntSAR Admiral with experience in Intelligence. I have 25 years in total within the services. In accordance with the official secrets act the remainder of my service is confidential due to its nature"

The buffoon does not even know, that there is no such thing as the Australian Official Secrets Act.

If you see Cowell anywhere on the horizon, steer well clear, as he is not an Admiral, he is a lying fake, who is as dishonest as any Pirate who ever sailed the seven seas, or tread the bush at The Rocks in NSW.

 *****

UPDATE COWELL April, 2018.

Canberra beware! A new crook is in town. The less than "Admiral Peter Cowell", is still trying to convince people that he is a "mover and shaker" in the world wide intelligence network. Unfortunately it is not possible for him to succeed, for apart from the fantasies pervading his cranium, he possesses no intelligence whatsoever.

Here is the latest copy of his resume.

Originally enlisted in the Australian Army for 6 years where I served in Armored (sic) recon (Cavalry), undertaking many specialist courses including basic Intel which set to (sic) scene for my career post-Army I transferred to the Corps of Engineers. After some time I moved on to Law Enforcement within the area of Corrections and Internal Investigations. Due to my earlier service with the army. After a time I became involved with a Maritime aid agency (N.G.O.) where I became aware of new Technology of potential military threat and use against Terrorists. I brought that to the attention of senior military authorities (said technology now having been developed by the United States and in use today). This together with my Degree in Security, Terrorism & Counter-terrorism with a second major in Law Studies saw me move into the Intelligence Community. Today, as a retired IntSAR Admiral with experience in Intelligence which carries with it some potential for diplomatic fallout. I have 25 years in total in the services. In accordance with the official secrets act the remainder of my service is confidential due to its nature. Today I provide limited consultancy on Geopolitical Strategic Military matters. My most recent client was the Office of the United States Secretary of Defense (sic).

In the above resume, he claims to have earned academic degrees in Security, Intelligence and Counter-terrorism with a second major in Law Studies. On his LinkedIn page, he also claims to have earned from the Murdoch University in Perth degrees in -;

Security, Terrorism and Counter-terrorism. Further studies toward a Masters in Asymmetric Warfare, International Relations and National Security Studies

A search of Graduate Students from Murdoch University did not list a person named Peter William Glen COWELL as ever graduating with any qualifications. The Murdoch University advise that if a person is not on the publicly accessible Graduates list, he has no Murdoch University qualifications.

Response By Email (Student Liaison Officer)
Hi XX

Thank you for contacting Murdoch University.

If a student is not listed in the graduate register which is located on the Murdoch website, then they have not completed a degree at Murdoch University.

We hope this information helps!

Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

His false claims that his twenty five years of service gives him experience, have connotations of the Officials Secrets Act and vast experience as an investigator. His twenty five years are all "Urine and Wind", as he served very little time as a Private Soldier in the Army Reserve and his Law Enforcement time was of short duration and spent as a Corrective Service Officer at the bottom of the promotions ladder. He never spent any time in the Navy and promoted himself to Admiral in an organization that was no more than a sham and a scam.

Here are photographs of Cowell as a Soldier and Corrections Officer:

On his Facebook page, Cowell recently claimed to be soon the Patron of a Veterans organization. He had his foot in the door, until the organization realised that he and his resume were nothing but lies and false pretences. They quickly sent him ashore, cancelled their "Ahoy shipmate" and bade him farewell.

Cowell is well represented in many places on the internet. Wherever he appears, he includes this photograph of his scruffy self as an "Admiral":


Peter Cowell



Ex Service organizations, the Defence Department and Citizens of Canberra beware of this Gilbert and Sullivan Admiral, who, by the way, has never served in the Queens Navy or sailed the deep blue or any other colour sea.

Introducing Rear Admiral Peter Cowell, Retired (Rtd) of International Sea Air Rescue and Humanitarian Aid Service (IntSAR).

Note: This organisation should not be confused with "Thunderbirds are Go", the search and rescue organisation featuring Scott, Tracy, Virgil, Geoff , Lady Penelope and Parker the Chauffeur.

Although difficult to see, "Admiral" Cowell, has advised that the medals he wears are:

Note: Cowell is wearing only one legitimate medal the Australian Defence Medals (ADM). The others are all unmentionable junk. He claims entitlement to the ADM because he was discharged from the Army Reserve with Kidney Stones. Here is what he said about his military service:

Cowell's Defence File contains only two documents:

One is an Application to enlist in the Regular Army in 1979 but he did not show for processing. The other is an Enlistment Advice to join the Army Reserve in 1980 as a Private Soldier which was processed.

There are no other documents to show any activity after the enlistment.

What is this mysterious IntSAR of which Peter Cowell is an Admiral Rtd? Here in his own words is the answer:


Cowell had serious communications with Senior Politicians and also with Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). Here is a letter head from a Western Australia Senator who apparently believed that Cowell was an Admiral. We have other letterheads from prominent politicians of the day.

Here is a letter that he claims to have written to ASIO.

 


Of particular note is this paragraph.

Cowell appears to have been afraid of foul play and in a slick move, threatens to tell all to the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China. Below is the envelope ready for the "Drop Box" at the Chinese Embassy.

ENOUGH of the Bulldust - Threatening to pass "Secrets" to the Chinese Embassy, wearing a uniform of an Admiral with medal ribbons is evidence of his delusional state.

"Admiral" Peter Cowell is a fanciful Admiral from a fanciful organisation of no substance.

He now runs a small Courier business in Perth and should stick to that. Although his work garb is somewhat different from his IntSAR Admiral's uniform, they can both be described and "scruffy".

We suggest Cowell stop wearing a uniform that would be inestimably beyond his capacity to achieve. He exacerbates the consequences of his actions by wearing "Tin" medals and a genuine medal that was also beyond his capacity to achieve.

Because of his stupidity he has achieved the notoriety of being presented to the world as an idiot on this web site.

We welcome Peter Cowell, who is a Courier driver and not Carrier driver as he would have us believe.

BROOKS UPDATE - JUNE 2020

In 2017 Benjamin Mathew Brooks was mentioned in ANZMI despatches for wearing four medals and an Army Combat Badge (ACB). Two of the medals and the ACB were fake.

He now wears six medals and three badges. Two of the medals, and one clasp are fake, one badge is not to be worn, except on Army uniform, and one of the badges is fake. Here are two photographs of Brooks, one from 2017, the other from 2020, showing his latest medals and badges display.


His current rack consists of:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM). Not entitled
Iraq Medal. Not entitled
Australian Service Medal (ASM) with two clasps. Entitled to the medal, but to only one clasp.
Operational Service Medal - Border Protection (OSM-BP) Entitled
Australian Defence Medal (ADM) Entitled
Timor Leste Solidarity Medal (TLSM) Entitled

Note that he wears two clasps on his Australian Service Medal. One would be for Timor, but he has no service that would result in a second clasp. (Shown on the right hand photograph of him above)

He also wears, the:

Australian Army Individual Readiness Badge (AIRN) which is to be worn only on Army uniform, by those who meet the criterion at a specific time. It was issued to Brooks but is not to be worn on civilian dress.


An Army Combat Badge (ACB) which is a military decoration that is awarded to any member of the Australian Defence Force for service with an Army combat element in warlike operations. Brooks does not meet that criterion. Not entitled


Operational Service Badge - Border Protection, is issued with the Australian Operational Service Medal (AOSM) He would have been awarded this badge in concurrence with the OSM-BP for Operation Relex. Entitled


In summary he now wears:

Six medals of which these two below, are fake.


Two badges, the AIRN Badge, is inappropriate for wear in civilian clothing and the ACB is fake.

Since last reported, his medal rack remains at two fake medals, but he has added AIRN badge and now wears two fake badges.

A reasonable person would note Brooks's medals, and deem him a hardened returned veteran. In reality, he lives a lie, and we assume that other aspects of his life could also be based on lies.

If you see Brooks wearing his medals on a commemorative occasion ask for his autograph as he is a noteworthy recidivist medals cheat, whose offence will be forever inscribed on this website

Beware of this cheat.

******

Benjamin Mathew  Brooks "tried it on" and has been comprehensively caught.

The photograph shows Brooks on a graduation parade when he became an Corrections Officer in the Northern Territory Correctional services.  We believe he is no longer a Corrections Officer because his general behaviour was less than satisfactory.

In the photograph he is wearing the following medals:

Australian Active Service Medal - Not Entitled

IraqMedal -  Not Entitled

Australian Service Medal - Entitled

Australian Defence Medal - Entitled

In addition he wears an Army Combat Badge to which he has no entitlement.

He never served anywhere to meet the criterion for this badge, which  is:

Been force assigned to a combat team for a period of either a continuous or an aggregate of 90 days satisfactory service; or

Been physically deployed in the same geographical location as a Combat Team and have a primary role to directly support that Combat Team for a period of either a continuous or an aggregate of 90 days satisfactory service.

He is wearing four medals and has earned only two.  The first two are prestigious medals for war service in Iraq, he did not earn them, they are self purchased fakes.

The third medal is for non warlike service in Timor and the last medal is for completing four years service in the Army.

People from all walks of life  understand the shame of stealing the honour of Defence Veterans and we are happy to investigate all reports received from the public.

Falsely wearing medals is a risky business, those who do it will be noticed and subsequently allocated space on this website.

Brooks was reported to us by a member of the Public and our investigation ascertained that he is a fraud and a wannabe who is very welcome on this website.

Commencement of service: 02 July 1961

Case Notes:

 

 

 

Graeme Rex Caesar enlisted in the RAN in 1961. He was 18 years of age when he signed on for 9 years. On his Linked in page he claimed 20 years RAN Submarine service. (1961 - 1981) Although since our recent contact with him, he has now changed these dates to (1961 - April, 1970) 9 years Submarine Service. These changed dates are significant as you read on.

Caesar is currently the Interim National President of the Submarines Association of Australia (SAA). This Association has branches in all states of Australia. Caesar was the President of the Queensland Branch prior to his being appointed Interim National President in early 2014. He claims to have been awarded a Doctorate in Philosophy (Phd), Organisational Management at Harvard University (USA), and a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Applied Psychology at Oxford University.(UK)

He refers to himself as Doctor Graeme Caesar.

The National AGM for the SAA will be held in Fremantle, Western Australia from the 7 November, 2014 to the 14 November, 2014. It will be the commemoration of 100 years of Australian Submarine Service since 1914 when the first two Australian Submarines AE1 and AE2 served in the First World War. There will be a number of International submariners from various countries also attending in addition to Federal Politicians.

Caesar is expected to stand and be voted in as the substantive National President at that conference. It is a prestige position.

Unfortunately for Caesar though, he is an imposter and a military fraud.

In 18 months, Caesar's medal rack with additional clasps has more than doubled.

On the 5 January, 2010, the photograph below was posted on his Facebook page.

Caesar is wearing the following medals with his Coast Guard mess jacket.

1. The Australian Active Service medal 1945-1975. One clasp. (AASM)
2. The Australian Service Medal 1945-1975 with one clasp. (ASM)
3. The Australian Defence Medal. (ADM)
4. The Pingat Jasa Malaysia medal.

In a photograph posted on his Facebook on the 28 July, 2011, eighteen months later, Caesar is wearing significantly more medals as indicated below -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasps Malaysia and South Vietnam.
2. General Service Medal 1962 with clasps Borneo and South Vietnam.

You might wonder how we can identify the clasps on all his medals in the above photograph. It was easy. Although not in correct order, he describes them on his Linked In page below.

Caesar came to our notice recently due to the rapid increase of medals and clasps to his rack over the past few years.

We obtained a copy of Caesar's Naval Record. Entries pertaining to his postings do not match his claimed medals entitlement.

As a consequence, we contacted Caesar in writing and requested information from him regarding his Naval service and the medal entitlements he claims. We requested any documentation that might support his assertions. A simple request just to address the anomalies regarding his service record and his claims. Caesar failed to respond.

However, a concerned Non Executive ordinary member of the Submarines Association Australia, sent us a copy of a communication written by Caesar that he received erroneously.

See below -;


For the personal information of the SAA National Executive, National Committee and National Officers

Gentlemen,

I have been contacted by a somewhat secretive unofficial group who call themselves the Australian and New Zealand Military Imposters wanting to know about periods of my service that do not appear in the publicly available records.

Like a lot of you, I saw service in Submarines and other Ships and Postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be, and I have no intention of replying to their enquiry nor entering into any correspondence of any sort with them.

Yours aye,
Graeme
Dr. Graeme Caesar
National President
Submarines Association Australia


Now you would think that if you received a simple request to provide details of your distinguished military career in campaigns that allegedly involved operational service in Malaysia, Borneo and Vietnam, you would be only too happy to respond like all genuine veterans do when we request information from them.

Caesars lack of interest in responding to our request convinced us that he may not be the veteran he claims to be. We then had a closer look at him.

As a result of our inquiries we have ascertained that Caesar is entitled to the following medals.

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasp Borneo.
2. Possibly General Service Medal 1962 with clasp Borneo.
3. Australian Service Medal 1945-1975, clasp FESR.
4. National Medal. (9 years RAN service and remainder possible Coast Guard service.) (15 years minimum service required.)
5. Australian Defence Medal.

He has no entitlement to wear the following medals and clasps.

1. Australian Active Service medal clasps Malaysia and Vietnam.(1945-1975)
2. Australian Vietnam Medal.
3. General Service Medal clasp Vietnam.
4. Australian Service Medal clasps 1945-1975 (Special Ops and PNG.)
4. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (181 days or more in Vietnam waters.)
5. Pingat Jasa Medal Malaysia. (90 days or more in designated area.)
6. Community Service Medal, tin purchased medal.
7. 2001 International Year of the Volunteer Medal. tin commemorative medal.

In his E mail to his Executive members, he claims that he "saw service on ships and other postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be".

If that is the case, why didn't Caesar just contact the Australian War Memorial (AWM) and rectify "their blunder" for not including his name on the Vietnam War nominal roll.

The Vietnam War Nominal Roll has been in existence since 1997. He has had 17 years to correct it. One communication to the AWM could have solved the problem. Not hard.

If he wears the Vietnam medals openly, and has posted photographs of himself wearing them on his Linked In and Face Book pages for the world to see, why is it such a secret?

Why is his Vietnam active service not shown on his Naval records or the Vietnam Nominal Roll?

Why hasn't he corrected it?

Why does his name not appear on any ship's crew lists that deployed to Vietnam waters for six months or more?

Why does he state that he saw service on ships and other postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be? He is implying that his service was top secret.

He claims six months Naval service in Vietnamese waters. ( i.e. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal) We don't know when. He may remember, but he won't tell us! Maybe he was on "Special Ops" again and all his secret records were destroyed like so many other imposters claim on this site.

Maybe he will tell his colleagues at the Fremantle conference in November, 2014 what ship he was on, the dates his ship served in Vietnamese waters, his duties, His Commanding Officer's name etc. We are sure that his SAA members will have a great deal of interesting questions to ask him.

As it has now been 45 years since the RAN completed six months deployments in Vietnamese waters (HMAS Brisbane 6/3/1971 to 15/10/1971 was the last HMA Ship deployed) , Caesar should have no difficulty explaining to the SAA members his secret service in clandestine operations. Surely it is not top secret anymore!!.

After all, he will be their President with the utmost integrity and he will no doubt be leading by example.

So much for his Vietnam service.

If we now look at his alleged operational service in Malaysia and Borneo as he claims on his Honours and Awards Linked In page, he asserts that he is entitled to the Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasps Malaysia and Vietnam. He also claims the General Service Medal 1962 with clasps Borneo and South Vietnam.

Caesar enlisted in the Royal Australian Navy on the 2 July, 1961.

According to his records, Caesar served from 1961 to 1964, at Shore establishments and HMA ships. He states that in this time he trained as a Naval Clearance Diver. About the equivalent of an Army Special Air Service Regiment operative. His records do not confirm this and about the only similarity he had to this was completing an RAN "swimming test" in July 1961.

He had service with the HMAS Quiberon from 30 September, 1961 to the 5 August, 1962. During this time the HMAS Quiberon had no active service accreditation. In other words no operational service in that period.

His record indicates that he served on the HMAS Sydney when it was re-commissioned from the 6 August, 1962 until the 6 December, 1962. The HMAS Sydney had no active service accreditation in that period.

He was then posted to the HMAS Parramatta on the 31 December, 1962. He served on and off that ship until 9 July, 1964. During that time the HMAS Parramatta made one 31 day operational deployment to Borneo waters from the 26 May, 1964, until the 26 June, 1964.

His record discloses that for the remainder of 1964 he served at Shore Establishments and on the 14 December, 1964 he flew to the UK for Submarine training.

He states on his National SAA curriculum vitae (c.v.) that he was posted to the United Kingdom in 1964 for Submarine training at HMS Dolphin. He then served with HMS Talent and HMS Grampus. In 1968 he moved to Scotland where he was to standby for the completion of HMAS Ovens, an Australian submarine being built. He states that Ovens was commissioned and he served on her in 1969 as second coxswain.

He now states on his changed Linked in Page, that he left the Royal Australian Navy in April, 1970 and not 1981. He must have had a memory lapse. He was actually discharged on the 1 July, 1970.

Therefore his only operational service was 31 days on the HMAS Parramatta in waters off Borneo. Those facts indicate that he is also not entitled to the Pingat Jasa Malaysian medal which requires 90 days service in the designated operational area.

In addition to this, to be eligible for the Malaysia clasp, Caesar would have to have been deployed in the qualifying area between the 17 August, 1964 and the 14 September, 1966. However, in August 1964 he was posted to Shore establishments in Australia prior to his posting to the UK in December, 1964 for submarine training. He has no entitlement to this clasp.

His claim to a clasp for Vietnam service on his General Service Medal is interesting. The Wikipedia attachment below clearly indicates that Caesar is not entitled to this award.

South Vietnam

This clasp was instituted by Royal approval on the 16 December 1965 for "members of our Australian Armed Forces who qualify by participation in operations in defence of the Republic of Vietnam as from 24 December 1962, and to a date to be determined,..." Between 1963 and 1965, at least 68 members of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) and 232 members of the RAAF Transport Flight Vietnam qualified for the clasp. However, a decision of 1966 relating to the institution and award of the Vietnam Medal led to the stripping of the award from the RAAF personnel. A Royal Warrant dated 8 June 1968 [2]retrospectively changed the qualifying periods to:
Between 24 December 1962 and 29 May 1964,

• 30 days' service in ships operating in inland waters or off the Vietnamese coast.
• 1 day in the service of a land unit.
• 1 operational sortie.
• 30 days' service on an official visit.

For service after 29 May 1964, personnel were awarded the Vietnam Medal. Thus, only 68 clasps were issued, and all 68 went to AATTV (Australian Army Training Team Vietnam)members.

The last paragraph is interesting. Caesar has no entitlement to this clasp whatsoever. He was never a member of AATTV and he has no Vietnam service.

He also has no entitlement to the "Special Ops" clasp that he wears on the Australian Service Medal 1945-1975. This clasp was awarded to Naval personnel who had qualifying service in Oxley Class Submarines from between 1978 to 1992. Caesar left the Navy on 1 July, 1970.

His Naval records also do not indicate that he is entitled to wear the PNG (Papua New Guinea) clasp on the ASM 1945-1975.

Below are his two tin medals that should not be worn on the left side and mixed or added to military medals. These are just unauthorised medals that can be purchased from the Internet for about thirty dollars each.


 

The Community Services Medal.

The 2001 International Year of the Volunteer Medal.

Caesar is just one of many high profile wannabees who have worked and bluffed their way up through the system to gain executive positions on Ex Service Organisation (ESO) committees and gain undeserved benefits and recognition.

Recently we exposed former ESO Executive and RAN Leading Sick Berth Attendant Trevor (Doc) Anthony for similar false representations of his operational military service, in addition to four former Presidents of Victoria RSL Clubs who have since resigned or been ejected.

We are also currently investigating other ESO executives who have gained positions through lies and deceit and who will be appearing on this site soon. One even claims that he is a victim of the "tall poppy syndrome". Most imposters undoubtedly think that with the passage of time, they will not be discovered.

Caesar is an imposter without credibility. He should resign, as should all other "tall poppy imposters" currently holding positions in ESO organisations before they appear on this site.

We requested information from him recently regarding proof of his entitlements to medals that he wears and displays on his Linked in and Facebook pages. He failed to respond but two days later, he removed all the offending photographs of himself wearing the non entitled medals from his Facebook page and his Linked in Page as well as his list identifying them all.

As mentioned above, he has also now changed completely his dates of service in the Royal Australian Navy by reducing his enlistment period by eleven years to a discharge date in April, 1970 rather than his previously stated date of 1981.

Unfortunately for Caesar though, the photographs of himself, that he is now trying to extinguish, will remain on this site for evermore as a reminder for him. Also for the world to see what a fraud and charlatan he really is.

He has no respect for all the genuine Vietnam veterans by trying to steal their honour. He should publicly apologise to all Vietnam Veterans. He has also shown complete disrespect to his Submarine Association of Australia colleagues by claiming military awards that he has no entitlement to.

Caesar has committed an offence against the Australian Defence Act 1903 as amended.

Section 80B IMPROPER USE OF SERVICE DECORATIONS.

1. A person is guilty of an offence if-;

(a) the person wears a service decoration and;
(b) the person is not the person on whom the decoration was conferred.

Penalty.

30 Penalty Units or imprisonment for 6 months or both.


In addition to his fraudulent display of medal entitlements that he has not been awarded, we made some inquiries at Harvard University regarding his claimed Doctor of Philosophy (Phd) qualification. We were not surprised when we received confirmation from the Registrar of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University that they have no Graeme Caesar on their records for this award. They have never heard of him.

We then contacted the Harvard Extension School (On line Courses), but they also confirmed that they do not award Phd's and they also have no record of him. Therefore his claim of Doctor status from Harvard University is also false.

At the time of writing, we are awaiting a response from Oxford University UK in respect to his claimed Bachelor of Science (BSc) Applied Psychology award.
Should be interesting!

The Submarines Association of Australia should take stern action against this imposter and eject him from their organisation altogether before he causes further damage and embarrassment to their good name.

They should also report him to the relevant authorities for his fraudulent behaviour of wearing service decorations and other claims of false educational qualifications, including Doctor status, that he has no entitlement to.

Welcome to the website Graeme Rex Caesar.

 

Graeme Rex Caesar Update – 23 Apr 15

Graeme Rex Caesar, or Doctor Graeme Rex Caesar, as he likes to be known is at it again.

He is not only a Military Medals cheat but also a false pretender and an outright fraud.

Even following our 2014 exposure of Caesar claiming false PhD (Doctor) status, he still claims to have been awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (Organisation and Management) at Harvard University, USA.

We have been advised in writing by Ms Caroline Harvey, Enrollment Services Co-Coordinator, Office of the Registrar, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University, that Graeme Rex Caesar has never been recorded as a Student at Harvard.

He has also never been awarded a PhD from Harvard Extension Faculty (Distance learning) as that Faculty does not offer PhD's. to students.

We have also made inquiries at Oxford University, United Kingdom, where Caesar claims he was awarded a Bachelor of Science (Applied Psychology).

Mr. Max Todd, Assistant Registrar (Compliance) Council Secretariat, University Offices, Wellington Square, informed us in writing that Caesar was never a Student at that University either.

Caesar still claims on his linked in page, graemecaesar.com/styled-3/index.html on his Education profile that he has these awards.

We are still awaiting results from La Trobe University in respect to his Bachelor of Business claims.

Below is a resume of his claimed educational qualifications on his website.

GRAEME CAESAR
Education


I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to study at three of the world's leading universities.

University of Oxford
Bachelor of Science (Applied Psychology)

La Trobe University
Bachelor of Business (Personnel and Industrial Relations)

Harvard University
Doctor of Philosophy (Organization and Management
)

Caesar claimed in the Gold Coast Bulletin on 2 March 2015 that he had the above qualifications when interviewed about a new business that he has commenced on the Gold Coast. The Journalist was told absolute lies in respect to Caesars claimed educational qualifications in an endeavor to obtain free publicity for his new company. The below mentioned article is an extract from that publication.

Caesar came to our notice in 2014 when he was the Interim National President of the Submarine Association Australia. (SAA) (See exposure above) He was intending to stand as the National President of the Association in November 2014 in Perth. He was expected to win. However he was caught out as a medals cheat, a fraud and an imposter beforehand and was duly exposed.

This Anzmi initial exposure caused him to resign from the SAA immediately. He caused serious embarrassment to the SAA at the time due to his high standing within the Association and our exposure of his fraudulent conduct.

It was a timely exposure, due to the fact that at the 2014 Annual General Meeting of the Submarines Association of Australia, the SAA was also commemorating 100 years Australian Submarine Service since Submarines AE1 and AE2 began service with the Royal Australian Navy.

This was in addition to the election of their new National President, which would have been Caesar. Numerous high ranking Royal Australian Navy, Defence Department officials as well as overseas dignitaries attended the 2014 AGM and celebrations.

We have been contacted by executives of the SAA who have expressed their sincere appreciation of the Anzmi exposure, before Caesar could have created any more damage to their organisation by being elected National President, and then being discovered as a Fraud during or after that election.

In the photograph below, Caesar is standing with some highly decorated and senior current and former Naval personnel at the Submariners Walk, Brisbane. We have blacked out their faces due to the embarrassment it would cause them. These other three gentlemen were responsible for initiating a plan for this commemorative Sub Mariners Walk and celebrating the satisfaction of having their ideas come to fruition. In the photograph however, and in the dominating position and displaying his false unawarded medals is Caesar. (Front right of photo)

In the photograph above, Caesar is wearing six unauthorised medals on his rack and a number of clasps that he has never been awarded. These medals and clasps are mentioned above in his initial exposure.

Caesar has threatened legal action against Anzmi. Whilst he continues to wear unawarded medals and falsely claim that he is a Doctor, we will keep featuring him on this site.

We advise any member of the public or business community who deals with Caesar to verify all qualifications that he claims, and be suspicious of anything he says.

We challenged him in 2014 to produce evidence of his false claims to military medals he was not entitled to. We received no response other than threats of legal action.

We again extend an invitation to Caesar to provide evidence of his Harvard University PhD, Oxford University Bachelor of Science and La Trobe University Bachelor of Business. We do not expect an answer, other than more legal threats.

Information displayed on this site is always supported by photographic and/or documentary evidence.

Caesar is fond of free publicity. We have notified the Gold Coast Bulletin about Caesar's fraudulent activities. Hopefully their own update will appear shortly, and he will be given some additional free publicity as well as ours.
