Kane Winther for some years has been extolling his "secret" adventures during his Army Service, however his tales of derring-do have now earned him a place in history on this web site.

Army records show only ordinary service, and all in Australia, but according to Winther, that is because of the Top Secret nature of his work, records were not kept, or have been destroyed. The missing records "detail service" with Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) and service in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan and included killing five men. Because of his service, he "suffers" from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, but refuses a pension, or help from Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) because he wants nothing more to do with the Army.

Here is the reality of his service as he divulged to an investigator:

"I was lucky enough to have done a couple of exercises with the regiment
but nothing overseas and it was just exercises. I wish I was good enough back then. I am glad that I never went to those places, regardless of wanting to serve because at that age I was definitely not ready (still wouldn't be).

I enlisted in Perth, then to Kapooka, Raaoc centre and Adelaide (ALB and
Woodside). Attempted the Cadre course but was unsuccessful".

I have copies of my military service records and nothing was overseas"


The lies he has told others of his service are detailed on Statutory Declaration that we hold.

Spreading false stories of bravado about Defence service, and in particular, claiming to be suffering from PTSD as a result of that service, is unacceptable behaviour, and those who do it, will be happily ensconced on this website where those who have been lied to will learn the truth.
