UPDATE  MAY 2018

Sydney McLeod has vigorously responded to our website entry. 

 We write facts and it is up to the reader to decide whether the person is a Wannabe or a Medals Cheat or a rampant Conspiracy theorist.  McLeod responded to our report as follows inter alia:

As for my being well known ACTUALLY EXCEPT FOR THE NIGHT The CIA in command of an American Military Unit threatened me with extinction by 5.5s if I fired on passing enemy everything claimed was written by a well respected officer who did not even know me until 30 years later so gutless one with tract (sic)  that assumption. He was also the officer who confirmed the awards I WAS TO GET.

The above passage is relevant to our report as it indicates the state of mind of McLeod regarding his conspiracy theories.  Below is his rationale for wearing unauthorised foreign and fake tin medals


As for the Purple Heart Many Australians have them whether we should wear them or not is a mute (sic) point I asked the Americans and they took the view that even though NONE of us are on the PH roll they said we SHOULD WEAR THEM WITH PRIDE oh and by the way it was not an American Officer as far as I remember it was a 2 stripper (sic) clerk who brought them to our beds in the American Battle Casualty Ward. I even had a visit from an Australian Captain who assured me I could not possibly be who I said I was and would be investigated and charged, never heard from him again. Now I have been wearing the FLS (Front Line Service)  medal tin long before the later Australian Gongs I still wear it because it is and was a direct challenge to wankers who write this crap up. As for the last minis they are set up for display and is missing 2 Vietnamese ones which when I get them will go into the book this FRAUD WHOEVER HE MAY BE CAN READ ABOUT THE TRUTH OF COMMAND IN AUSTRALIA AND VIETNAM and the verifying officer. So the only SILLY individual is the IGNORANT AUTHOR OF THIS CRAP

Here is another passage from him

 THIS IS SLANDER AND AN INCORRECT OPINION AS I AM ONLY BACKING WHAT A WELL RESPECTED OFFICER HAS STATED AND PROOF IS PROVIDED. MY CONTRIBUTION IS ABOUT WHY I MUTINEED (sic) AND THE FACT I WAS NOT COURT MARTIALLED, THE NEW COMMANDER OF THE MAT WAS LIED TO ABOUT IT (didn't even know I existed after arriving the day after I left) AND THE FACT THAT A CIA AGENT TOOK COMMAND OF 89 MACV A MILITARY UNIT IS IN AUSTRALIAN VIETNAM WAR HISTORY. REMOVE IT OR I will get legal advice about this and the other charges against AHQ. And I would suggest you give the syphilitic harlot you used for this a smack around the chops. Oh and by the way you failed to mention I am not wearing MY ENTITLED UNIT CITATION WITH FEDERATION STAR for my part in 2nd Coral and both Balmorals. You got me on where I wear my PH and my FLS tin which I will continue to do so fuckwits like your abuser can expose themselves. To even mention the rack that I ""OWN"" and use in the book as an example is anexample what a slut you have reporting for you

We have said that McLeod is a Medals Cheat and a conspiracy theorist.  McLeod's response is proof that we have got it right.

MacLeod spent time deployed to Malaysia before being deployed to Vietnam for 756 days in an Infantry role.  We believe that the Army should carefully consider mental health issues, before committing soldiers to long term repetitive deployments to war zones. 

 

*** 

Have no doubt, Sydney Alexander McLeod has served with distinction. He served two tours with a total of 756 days in Vietnam. All that time was spent as a combat soldier. His first tour in 1967 - 1968 was as a Private Soldier and his second tour 1970 -1971 was as a Sergeant.

Notice the last two medals he wears are:

USA Purple Heart
Front line medal

The Purple Heart is not a medal authorised by the Governor General of Australia and must never be attached to his genuine rack of medals.

The Purple Heart was issued to USA service persons who were wounded in action. McLeod was wounded in action on the 22 January 1968 when the vehicle hit a mine at GR509546 South of Lo Gom. He was evacuated to a USA Military Hospital and claims whilst recovering in hospital was presented with the Purple Heart by a US Army Officer. Irrespective of how he acquired the Medal, protocol dictates that it must not be worn with Australian Defence or Federal medals on the left breast.

The Front Line Medal is an unauthorised, unofficial, self purchased commemorative medal and must not be worn with Defence or Federal Medals.

McLeod is well known in the Veteran community because of his rantings about how corrupt the Australian Army was in Vietnam. He is a silly conspiracy theorist and he is the corrupt one, due to his shenanigans to corrupt the Australian Honours and Awards system.

Below is another rack of medals that he owns. He has not been seen wearing this rack of medals and therefore has not committed any offence

He would be entitled to wear seven of the twelve medals. Five of the medals are fanciful awards that he believes he should have been presented with. The Australian Government decides who wears what. It is people like McLeod who are chipping away at the integrity of the Australians Honours system.

Irrespective of his personal belief that he can wear whatever he likes, ANZMI will report him and his ilk wherever and whenever they offend.
