Case Notes:

 

Ian Denison is less than truthful when asked about his Defence Service.

 



Notice in the photograph he wears a Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) pin and a Returned from Active Service Badge (RASB) on his lapel.

Here is what he said when asked about his service:

"Ian Denison

Good morning
I was beret qualified however I never deployed to a squadron due to injuries sustained on my para course I took a Trade pass and went back to my original trade.

We were based in Rabaul on east new Britain and were deployed in various areas of png. I am not at liberty to reveal Due to the official secrets act.

I hope this clears up this issue

Kindest Regards
Ian Denison MG CSM
Managing Director"


"Beret qualified" means he was fully qualified for SASR service. Only after passing a grueling testing and training program SASR candidates become qualified to wear the coveted Sandy Beret.



He infers that as an SASR Trooper he deployed to Papua New Guinea (PNG), however cannot talk about it because of the "Official Secrets Act". He also says he was awarded an "MG" and a "CSM" for his Defence Service. "MG" is the post nominal for the Medal of Gallantry (MG) and a "CSM" is for the Conspicuous Service Medal (CSM), both these awards are very prestigious.

The truth is, he:

Was not "beret qualified".
He was never injured on a "para course"
Was never deployed to PNG
Was never awarded an MG or a CSM

He was posted to the SASR as a Transport Driver without any involvement in SASR training or deployments.

Having been posted to SASR, even though he was a transport driver and not a qualified SASR Trooper, he was graciously accepted as a member of the Special Air Service Association (ASASA), which entitles him to wear the SASR pin.

He wears the RASB to portray himself as a veteran who has returned from an area of conflict. He is not entitled to wear the RASB badge.

Denison served as a transport driver with SASR and was respected for his service to the extent he was accepted into the ASASA and allowed to wear the SASR pin. He has taken advantage of ASASA membership and perhaps believes, that because of the passing of time he could become part of the very prestigious SASR veteran fraternity who have served on overseas operations.

Denison is a liar and wannabe who obviously does not understand the checks and balances available to ensure that people like him cannot steal the integrity and honour of those who have served in the SASR.

We have parachuted Denison into this website where he has well earned his place.
