Case Notes:

Stan Bryant was born in New Zealand on the 12 June, 1949. He emigrated to Australia and worked in various jobs before settling at Kandos, near Mudgee, where he became the proprietor of Bryant's Saddlery, 1 George Street, Kandos. From all accounts he was a well respected member of the community.

In particular, all his friends and acquaintances in the town of Kandos and surrounding towns believed that Stan Bryant was an Australian Army Vietnam War Veteran, who had been awarded the Military Medal for his bravery in that war.

Below is a photograph of Bryant wearing the following medals,

From left to right -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 (AASM) with clasp Vietnam.Not entitled.
2, The Vietnam Medal, Not entitled.
3. The Australian Defence Medal,Not entitled.
4. The Vietnam Campaign Medal,Not entitled.
5. The Military Medal. Not entitled.

The photograph is from his current Facebook page and had been posted there since at least 2012.

The above photograph is the Military Medal.

Until 1993, the Military Medal (MM) was a military decoration awarded to personnel of the British Army and other services, and formerly also to personnel of other Commonwealth countries, below commissioned rank, for bravery in battle on land.
The medal was established on 25 March 1916.[2] It was the other ranks' equivalent to the Military Cross (MC), which was awarded to commissioned officers and, rarely, to warrant officers, although WOs could also be awarded the MM. The MM ranked below the Distinguished Conduct Medal (DCM), which was also awarded to non-commissioned members of the Army.[3]

Wikipedia.

The Face Book photograph of Bryant was tagged,“Here is a photo of me with my Nam medals.”Then followed a stream of congratulatory emails from his friends and acquaintances complimenting him on his service to the Nation and some saying how poorly, he and his Vietnam Veteran friends were treated on their return home from the War Zone.

Bryant revelled in these comments, most likely feeling like the Kandos town war hero.

Bryant however is just an out and out fraud. An imposter of the highest order. An immoral person, who has stolen the honour of all those who have served in the Australian Army in Vietnam, and other fields of conflict.

Bryant has never served in any capacity in the Australian Army, Navy or Air Force, let alone serving in the active war zone of South Vietnam. To make matters worse, he poses in the photograph with the prestigious Military Medal for bravery.

Coincidentally, it was the Military Medal that aroused the suspicions of genuine veterans that reside in the Kandos-Mudgee areas of New South Wales. Bryant wears the Military Medal last in the set of medals he purchased. The Military Medal should have priority and be worn first. Not having any idea about military medals wearing protocols, Bryant just pinned it to his chest as he saw fit.

Posting fraudulent photographs of themselves wearing un-awarded medals, imposters like Bryant, thrive on the attention they receive. They use words like “Nam” to project an image of their false military service.

Bryant did nothing to correct the wrong. He accepted the adulations of his friends and colleagues on Face Book on Anzac Days, Remembrance Days and Vietnam Veterans Days, for many years.

We sent Stan Bryant an email and invited him to respond to allegations that the medals he wears were not awarded to him.

This is his reply -;

Guilty as charged.
I have never served in the army.
I can offer no explanation for posting that photo other than stupidity.
I had no idea of the signifcance (sic) of the medals and had allways (sic) thought they were not real.
The photo was taken about 1998 and was part of a comercial (sic) photo shoot.
I was given the jacket with medals attached, the walking stick the dark glaseses (sic) and told how to pose etc.
I appoligise (sic) if I offended anyone and will never post this again.

Like all imposters we expose on this site, Bryant is a liar. The only thing Bryant is sorry for is the fact he was caught out. He now faces a mammoth task, trying to convince all of his family and friends that he is not a Vietnam Veteran at all, but only wore the medals as some sort of "photo shoot".

Also, the problem for his story, is that in the photograph that we have edited, two young ladies also appear either side of Bryant. However, they correctly wear ancestor’s medals on the right hand side. Would they have been given their coats and medals to wear as well for a “photo shoot?” Not likely.

Another problem for Bryant is that on his Face Book page he has posted the following entry on the 1 April, 2016.

Stan Bryant

I wore this with pride!!! so will post as often as I bloodywell like

From Andrea (surname deleted) - You have a lot to be proud of Stan.
From Sue (surname deleted) - Yes, you should and Andrea is right , you do.
From Val (surname deleted) - Go for it.


So by his own admission, Bryant was claiming false Vietnam service in the Australian Army in 1998 when the original photograph was taken, up until the above Face Book entry with the supportive comments from his friends, Andrea, Sue and Val, who obviously believe his lies in 2016. Bryant has therefore been a Vietnam Veteran Imposter since 1998, or 18 years. So much for his "photo shoot excuse."

Following our communication with Bryant, he has now removed his Face Book page photo, where he wears purchased Vietnam medals, and all the praiseworthy comments from his friends, along with it.

Stan Bryant, you are a low life military imposter, who steals the honour of all those who have been to war, and those who have been awarded the Military Medal, both living and deceased.

You have never laced up an Australian Army boot, and you would have no idea what servicemen and women endure to qualify for the medals that you illegally wear.

Bryant has committed offences under the Defence Act 1903, Sections 80A and 80B in falsely representing himself to be a returned serviceman and wearing military medals that have not been awarded to him. These offences each carry a $3,000 fine and or six months imprisonment.

Bryant, you are more than worthy of having your name placed on this website forever.

Case Notes:

John Mark Smets is 51 years of age. He resides at Arana Hills, a suburb of Brisbane. He had 21 years service in the Royal Australian Navy, where he performed the duties of a Combat Systems Operator. (Sonar) He discharged in 2004 as a Leading Seaman and then joined the RAN Reserves.

John Smets is Medal Cheat, a Valour Thief, a Fraud and a Love Rat. He has preyed on vulnerable generous women, who have believed his heroic war stories of being a Naval Clearance Diver, in Iraq and Afghanistan. He uses the disability of war caused Post -Traumatic Stress Disorder to convince these women to give him money and lodgings. When he cannot use them anymore, or they refuse to give him more cash, he moves on to next victim.

Below is a photograph of John Mark Smets.

 

Smets1jpg 2


In the above photograph, Smets is wearing the following medals -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) with 3 clasps. (East Timor – ICAT – Iraq 2003.) Entitled to AASM with one clasp only – East Timor.. He is not entitled to wear the ICAT clasp (International Coalition against terror) or the Iraq 2003 clasp.
2. Interfet Medal. - Entitled.
3. Afghanistan Medal. – Not entitled.
4. Iraq Medal – Not entitled.

5. Australian Service Medal (ASM) with 3 clasps. (Unknown) - Entitled to ASM with one clasp- Kuwait. Whatever the other two clasps are, he is not entitled to them.
6. Defence Force Service Medal with a 5 year clasp. (DFSM) - Entitled.
7. Australian Defence Force Medal. (ADM) - Entitled.
8. United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor Medal (UNTAET) – Not entitled.

Above his medal rack, Smets is wearing a Royal Australian Navy Parachute qualification badge. He is not entitled to wear this adornment. He never commenced or completed this course.

The image above is of the Royal Australian Navy’s Parachute Qualification Badge, awarded to sailors who have not completed the SAS selection and CT training cycle, but have completed para training and awarded the standard RAN parachutist wing. This includes the Clearance Divers who now form part of the east coast based TAG-E which is structured around the Sydney based 2 Commando Regiment.

He is also not entitled to wear the above blue coloured United Nations beret and hat badge.

Smets served on a number of ships during his RAN service as a Combat Systems Operator (Sonar). However, he never served in Iraq or Afghanistan in a prescribed war like period, and he is not entitled to wear those medals. He also did not serve for 90 consecutive days in East Timor to be eligible to wear the UNTAET medal.

The above medal is the un-awarded Iraq Medal.

The above medal is the un-awarded Afghanistan Medal.

 

Smets5



The above medal is the un-awarded UNTAET medal.



UNAMET/UNTAET medal was established on 9 December 1999. The ribbon has two outer bands of UN blue, representing the UN presence in East Timor. Inside the two bands, there are two equal bars - closest to the blue, the bar is crimson, with the bar closest to the center being sunrise yellow. These colours represent the brilliant and spectacular sunrises and sunsets experienced in East Timor. The center of the ribbon is a band of white, traditionally the colour of peace and hope, the goal this Mission seeks to achieve. Qualifying time of service for the reception of UNAMET/UNTAET medal is 90 days.
(Wikipedia)


Smets was never a Clearance Diver with the Royal Australian Navy. That statement is also false.

Smets has been an incorrigible liar for many years. We have been sent statutory declarations from a number of extremely generous women who invited him to live in their homes, because of his alleged acute battle fatigue and lack of finances.

We know that we have only touched the surface with these statutory declarations and we have been assured, that there are many other ladies out there, who are willing to provide further statutory declarations about this Fraud, and his despicable behaviour.

The statutory declarations we have been provided, detail outlandish lies by Smets to ladies to ingratiate himself with them, gain their trust and sympathy and then request financial assistance from them, that he never repays. This behaviour has continued over many years and he has left a trail of disheartened and angry people in his wake.

His lies include -;

• He was a qualified elite RAN Clearance Diver for 20 years.
• He was “dux” of his class at the Clearance Divers Course, and his name is engraved on their Honour Board.
• He became a RAN Clearance Diver Instructor and trained and tested potential clearance divers in Sydney Harbour.
• He served in war like theatres in East Timor, Iraq and Afghanistan as a RAN Clearance Diver.
• He shot a female in Afghanistan who was subsequently found to have explosives on her.
• Whilst in Afghanistan, he held down the femoral artery of a wounded colleague, and applied pressure for as long as he could, before watching his colleague die.
• He cleared IED’s (Improvised explosive devices) in Iraq and Afghanistan by laying on his stomach and scratching the ground with his fingers, to recover the device.
• He suffers acutely from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome.
• Due to the clandestine operations he was involved in, all his military records are classified as “Secret”, and they cannot be accessed by anyone.
• He was a RAN Clearance Diver during the Brisbane Floods.
• Although he has acute PTSD, he went to Bond University and qualified as a Solicitor and a Barrister. He came first in his Law Class.
• He is a qualified DVA Pension Officer and Advocate.
• He needs money to send the body of his recently deceased father back to Belgium to be placed in the family vault.
• He is suffering Testicular and prostate cancer, and needs money to pay for his ongoing treatment.
• He does not attend Anzac Day ceremonies now, as he gets too depressed.

We have also been advised by senior Redlands Returned & Services League (RSL) Sub Branch (Qld) officials, that Smets tried to ingratiate himself in their Sub Branch affairs. He claimed that he was a Barrister, and was giving advice on Department of Veterans Affairs pensions, to their members. Most of the time, the information supplied was was found to be incorrect. It was subsequently revealed that he was never a Barrister, a Solicitor, a qualified Pension Officer or an Advocate. He was immediately given the boot by the Redlands RSL, once his fraudulent claims were discovered.

Campbells1

In the above photograph, Simone Campbell is shown, on ANZAC Day, 2015, wearing the Australian Defence Medal, and no campaign medals. She is missing the Defence Long Service Medal, which she was awarded, on 01 May 2010.

Campbell, after RAAF recruit training, went on to train as a clerk administrative. However, after a short time, she transferred to the steward mustering. Following a few years as a steward, she was accepted for crew attendant (flight steward) training. Campbell was then posted to Number 34 Squadron (34SQN), March 1999, as a crew attendant, on DA900 Falcon, VIP aircraft, ferrying members of the Federal Parliament, on their business activities. Subsequent to Campbell’s 34SQN posting, she was posted to 33SQN, as a crew attendant, on Boeing 707 aircraft.

Following several more postings, to ‘ground jobs’, Campbell resigned from the RAAF, on 04 August, 2008 and transferred to the RAAF Active Reserve, where she continues to serve, with the rank of sergeant.

On 11 January, 2016, an article appeared in the newspaper, the ‘Illawarra Mercury’, about Campbell’s exploits. In the article, she made some very unusual and interesting claims, about her RAAF service.

Excerpt from 'Illawarra Mercury':

‘Sergeant Simone Campbell was with the Royal Australian Air Force for 17 years and flew on missions in and out of Afghanistan, Iraq and East Timor. And was a member of support teams following the Bali bombings and tsunamis. She has personally endured many challenges. Now the work she does with youth and some of the six million Australians who suffer Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is helping many.’
Further in the article, Simone claims:

‘In September 1999 her aircraft was loaded with Special Forces bound for East Timor. It landed at night between two mountains and with no runway lights. She could see shots being fired. She did that for the next six months and learned to live with fear.
That was followed by support missions after the Bali bombings and tsunamis before being sent to the War on Terror. When she finally returned she found it hard to re-adjust. “I had to find ways to control the memories. I do have night terrors. Living with the horrors of what you have seen…is quite traumatic.”

Analysis of Claims:

Campbell claims that, in September 1999, her aircraft was loaded with Special Forces troops, bound for East Timor;
In fact, in August 1999, Campbell was on conversion course, at 34SQN, Canberra. The DA 900 Falcon aircraft, which she was training for, was not involved in any East Timor tasks. Actually, the Boeing 707 aircraft, of 33SQN, her much later posting, were engaged in ferrying SF troops from Townsville to Darwin only, where the B707 tasks terminated. Those tasks were then taken over, by 36SQN and 37SQN, C130 Hercules aircraft. Further, on 19 October 1999, Campbell had just completed the four week, RAAF Combat Survival course. Something does not add up, with her timing.

Campbell’s claims, of seeing ‘tracer bullets’, and landing between two hills, are pure fantasy, as she was never there.

We hold evidence, from an earlier and unrelated investigation, where a former senior Australian Army member, who was deployed in East Timor between 16 September, 1999 and 21 April, 2000, who has stated:

“I was there from 16 September 1999 to 21 April 2000. If there was any small arms fire (separate to the shot fired at a runaway prisoner), I must have slept through it."

"Timor kicked off on 16 September 1999 and Dili (and the surrounding areas) were secure by 23 September 1999. I can tell you that the entire area, including the airport, was secure.”

Campbell’s other claims of being in Iraq and Afghanistan, are a total fabrication. There is no evidence that she was ever posted to the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO).

The ‘Defence Act 1903, Part 80A’ states:

‘Falsely representing to be returned soldier, sailor or airman
(1) A person commits an offence if:
(a) the person represents himself or herself to be a returned soldier, sailor or airman; and
(b) the representation is false.
Penalty: 30 penalty units or imprisonment for 6 months, or both.’

The first Bali bombing occurred on 12 October, 2002. One month prior, to the bombing, 10 September, 2002, Campbell was posted to 285SQN, a training squadron at RAAF Base Richmond.

The second Bali bombing, occurred on 1 October 2005 and, at that time, Campbell was posted to Headquarters, Air Command, at Glenbrook, NSW, to be the valet, to the Air Commander Australia. That posting was effective on 10 January, 2005, well before the second Bali bombing. Which Bali bombing are you referring to, Sgt Campbell, as neither fit your timeline?

Another of Campbell’s claims, is her involvement in the ‘Boxing Day Tsunami’, which occurred on 26 December, 2004. On 10 January, 2005, Campbell went on the ‘ground’ posting, mentioned above. At that stage, the 33SQN Boeing 707 aircraft were not yet involved in ‘Operation Sumatra Assist’, subsequent to the tsunami and, when they were involved, such a large aircraft would have been restricted to major, undamaged airfields, nowhere near the devastation.

Campbell’s claims are categorised as valour theft, by ‘gilding the lily’. However, to make such claims is distorting the truth, and manipulating the facts, to suit her personal agenda.

Campbell was asked to provide evidence of her involvement, in what she claims, by sending scans of her ‘Aircrew Flying Log Book’, which would have solved the matter, outright. Unfortunately, she refused to do so. Aircrew log books have no security classification, whatsoever.

The full article, in the ‘Illawarra Mercury’, is at:

http://www.illawarramercury.com.au/story/3655433/wind-beneath-many-wings/

Members of the Australian Defence Force, police, fire and ambulance services, put their lives on the line, every day. Do they boast about it? No way – they just get on with the job. The point is that they have plenty to boast about, but choose not to. ANZMI have found, with vast experience, that those who have done the least boast the most.

There must be something in the Wollongong water, as another fitness instructor, Lee Thomas Carr, also appears on ANZMI, for telling tall stories about his ‘nothing’.

Maybe Carr and Campbell should get together and swap war stories.

www.anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/567-carr

Simone Elaine Campbell: There is no doubt that you have served your country well, during your RAAF service, and have contributed to your community, with your involvement in assisting people with emotional problems.

Unfortunately, you have made false claims about active service, in East Timor and the MEAO, to enhance your standing in the community, and to influence people to attend your training classes, by inventing non-existent 'heroics'. Because of that deception, you will remain, in these pages, for a very long time.

Varney 1 2 3

Thomas (Tom) Varney was described by a certain court official as being ‘something out of Catch Me if You Can’ when being held to account for one of his many impersonations of a medical professional.

It was his tall stories, of being a returned serviceman that, once again, placed him in the spotlight he seems to crave.

During an interview to perform voluntary work with an ex-service organisation, he stated that he had been diagnosed with PTSD subsequent to a 3 month deployment to Afghanistan in ‘support of the Army’. However, he could not disclose any further information about his tour of duty. Varney also stated he worked for an unspecified Defence Organisation Personnel Support Unit that dealt with complex issues that he could not write on his CV as it was ‘classified’.

He went on to state he had been in the ADF for 10 years, but when questioned about his young age, he provided a wishy-washy answer about mainly being in the Navy Cadets, or an ADFA Cadet. At least he was not telling pork-pies about being in the Navy Cadets, as this picture shows.

Varney 2 2 3

 

If you are curious about why he has a stethoscope around his neck, well, read on and all will be made clear.

Some people are content with maintaining just one fantasy. Tom Varney has an obsession with the medical profession, emergency services and uniforms, in general. Given the amount of evidence that he has left in the public domain, via the internet, the community should be made aware, of his ridiculous antics, and the possible danger that his fantasies pose.

The smiling face at the top of the page is the alleged ‘Doctor’ Tom Varney, on duty at Royal Adelaide Hospital in late 2012, where he not only succeeded in examining a patient, but was able to write a script for medication as well! During the year he was able to pass himself off as a doctor and a nurse, at a number of medical facilities in Adelaide, before being caught.

In late 2013, Varney, after a quick visit to the South Australian Registry of Births, Deaths and Marriages, and payment of the appropriate fee, saw Varney become Thomas John Conley. Of course this required a new Facebook page. On this page he states that he is ‘Tri-Service and served at a ‘highly classified’ Personnel Support Unit at the Australian Defence Force. His latest profile, gives the overall impression that he is somehow, a serving member of the ADF.

On The ANZMI Website we have the following:

1. Current serving Defence Force members, who have embellished their service and added non  awarded medals to their rack.


2. Former serving Defence Force members, who have embellished their service and added non awarded medals to their rack.

3. Members of the community, who have had no military service whatsoever, who love to attend Anzac Days and other commemorative occasions, sporting military medals, ribbons and badges that they have not earned or been awarded.

Arthur Collimore from Arden Street, Coogee, is a member of the third group.

The below photograph was taken on Anzac Day, 2016 in Coogee, NSW.

Collimore photo1


In the above photograph, Collimore is wearing the -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal, 1945 -1975.
2. Vietnam Medal.
3. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal.

He is also wearing the ribbons applicable for those awards. Above the ribbons and medals, he wears a crossed rifles badge, which is a World War 2 Marksman accoutrement. He also wears a beret with an Australian Army Infantry Corps hat badge. He is not entitled to wear any of them.

The below photograph shows a "hatless" Collimore saluting the Australian Flag at the 2016 Anzac Day ceremony at the Coogee Legion Club, Sydney following his laying of a wreath.

His salute is not the official Australian Army salute but something similar to a Royal Australian Navy salute.

As he is not wearing military uniform, he should not be saluting at all. He should stand back at attention and bow his head, and place his right hand over his medals, as has been the long held tradition.

He has no idea.

Collimore2


Our last photograph is the Anzac Day wreath with a self explanatory card. Collimore had convinced the Coogee Legion Club Sub Branch executive that he was a Korea and Vietnam War Veteran. Consequently, the commemoration card, which was composed from information that Collimore had given the executive staff, denotes that he is a Korea and Vietnam veteran. (Served both theatres)

Collimore3


Arthur Collimore is an imposter. He is a proven liar and a medal cheat. There is no record of any defence service for Arthur Collimore. His name also does not appear on the Nominal Roll of Korean Veterans, or the Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans.

He has been acting out his charade for many years at official commemorative ceremonies, and until recently, no one has ever questioned his decision or right to wear Korean War or Vietnam War campaign medals.

We know that Collimore does not march with Returned Korean or Vietnam Associations, but prefers to march with Second World War Associations, where his claims to Korean and Vietnam active service will not be questioned.

He attends the Coogee Legion Club in Sydney, where he continues his lies regarding his false military history. He has even claimed to colleagues at another club he frequents, that he was dishonourably discharged from the Australian Army due to him becoming a heroin addict in Vietnam.

On the Sunday prior to Anzac Day, 2016, following the Wreath Laying Ceremony at the Club, Collimore was invited to join their struggling Sub Branch. He was informed that he was required to provide evidence of his service in the Australian Military Forces. Of course, none has been forthcoming, and none will be.

Collimore has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 for many years, by wearing purchased replica campaign medals and claiming to be a Korea and Vietnam War veteran.

He is neither. He is a blatant fraud, who will grace the ANZMI website for many years to come.

"People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only
because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
Anon.


Allow us to present the Supreme Commander of the International Police Commission (IPC), General (Four Star) Anthony Jackson, KGK, OAM. If you are prepared to believe their website, our General Jackson commands an international band of crime fighters formed to serve and assist the peoples of the world in the maintenance of peace and achieve prosperity. The IPC aims to play a vital role in preventing and ending crimes against humanity such as drug trafficking, terrorism, murders, and unnecessary killings, abuse of women and children and violation of human rights.

It might also interest you, the reader to know that General Jackson, apart from being the Supreme Commander of the IPC, he is also their official Ambassador to Australia and for good measure, the Territorial Commander. Phew, how lucky are we?

If at this stage, you still don’t believe us, please visit their website at ipc-ghq.com/.

So, who is Anthony Gordon Jackson, OAM when he is not commanding an international band of crime fighters? He does exist and has an entitlement to wear both the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) and the Australian Sports Medal. He was awarded these awards for his service to martial arts and not International crime fighting! Apart from the OAM and Sports Medal, he can also be seen wearing, on his left side, a medal that appears to be the General Service Medal 1962 (GSM62) and lastly, the Australian Defence Medal (ADM).

The latter two medals suggest Jackson has had military service, possibly with UK Forces and also service in the Australian Defence Force. We will worry about the medals on the right side a little bit later. The reader will also note Jackson is wearing a ‘star’ device below his rack as well as a red sash and neck device. This ‘honour’ is apparently the KGK which is obviously some sort of knighthood that many wannabes seem to be able to find and self-award.

Apart from the ‘dodgy’ knighthood, it can be argued that Jackson is wearing his entitled honours and awards correctly. It may be the case in the above photograph but things change significantly when he puts his uniform on.


Here we have a photograph of the Supreme Commander and we guess, members of his global command team. Jackson can be seen wearing at least three rows of ribbons on the left chest, most of which are nothing but ‘tin rubbish’.

The photograph does tell us how little Jackson values the OAM, as it can be seen above the tin on the second row, he has not even bothered to give that prestigious Australian award the dignity it deserves.

In case you are wondering what rank his companions hold, here is their ‘rank structure’ and organisational chart.

Don’t be too alarmed just yet, they even have an ‘official’ ID card and a badge to go with it. The astute reader may note that they employ a good deal of ‘photo shopping’ when creating the ID card (see the first picture in this report).


They even have a ‘tropical’ uniform for those jobs when all black just won’t do.

We have searched long and hard to try and identify what the KGK ‘honour’ is and how it is awarded and by whom. Suffice to say that the total lack of information about the award speaks much about its value than anything else we can add.

Turning now to the medals being worn on the right side, we can count at least eleven medals, crosses and stars, none of which can be identified as an approved State, philanthropic or approved association medal.

Many followers of ANZMI would be aware that we strongly oppose the mixing of State Awards with National Awards worn on the right breast, contrary to clear directions from the Office of the Governor General. This stance is not intended to belittle State Awards, but simply to ensure compliance with current Honours and Awards policy in Australia.

So, with that said we at ANZMI will also expose those who do belittle often hard earned State awards by wearing ‘tin rubbish’ on the left breast simply to make oneself appear to be something one is not. As with the KGK, none of the medals worn on the left side can be identified as genuine State awards, the sheer number of them alone ridicules the State Awards System.

Just who are the International Police Commission (IPC)?

The IPC claim, on one of their websites to be:

‘…a member of the United Nations – Economic and Social Council (UN-ECOSOC), it is a duly registered international non-profit, non-secretarial,(we think they mean Sectarian) peacekeeping and social development paramilitary organization based in the State of California, United States of America with extension commands in member nations of the UN…’

It may surprise many to learn that there is in fact a UN - Economic and Social Council (UN-ECOSOC) and they can be found on the web at:

www.un.org/en/ecosoc/about/subsidiary.shtml

Not surprisingly though, there is no mention of the IPC, despite their exuberance in using the UN symbol on websites and uniforms. Further searches of UN Websites have revealed vague references to IPC as a NGO (Non-Government Organisation) but there is no reference to the IPC playing any sort of peacekeeping or policing role anywhere in the world.

They claim to be a paramilitary organisation, but this is all we could find on their Facebook page:

It is not the role of ANZMI to look into organisations such as the IPC, but we would encourage followers of ANZMI to undertake their own research, as we trust, the Federal and State Police bodies have.

The organisation has been registered in Victoria as an incorporated body. We guess to allow them to fundraise? We leave it to the individual reader to decide if you would part with your money to support groups such as this.

Yes, this could simply be a case of grown men dressing in fancy uniforms and playing policeman but who knows.

Here is a copy of their membership form. Be careful though, by signing the form you are joining the IPC willingly and voluntarily without any reservation! We have shown that uniform plays an important part in Australia’s supreme command of the IPC, this can be clearly seen by the fact your uniform size appears on the application form before educational and employment background. What more is there to be said?

What we do know is that their Supreme Commander in Australia, Anthony George Jackson is another wannabe medal cheat who, despite having been awarded one of Australia’s highest awards chooses to belittle that award by mixing it with tin rubbish and a make believe knighthood of dubious description. Welcome to our website MR Jackson.

 

JACKSON UP-DATE – 22 NOV 15

Since our initial exposure of ‘Wacko Jacko’, the ‘El Supremo’ of the International Police Commission, crime fighter and medals cheat, information has streamed in concerning this fraudster.   This information has raised serious concerns regarding the circumstances and information which was used to assess his nomination for the Medal of the Order of Australia, and most likely the Australian Sports Medal.

We have also learned that he has claimed false military service, and probably committed copyright offences in an autobiography he penned.

Firstly, his false claims about his military service.

After considerable research, it has been revealed that JACKSON served for a time in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) as a Carpenter.   During his time in the RAAF he was posted to RAAF Base Butterworth in Malaysia.   Now, there is nothing untoward about that, fairly simple and mundane.

But wait, JACKSON is able to turn a routine posting into something much more; and how do we know?   Well, JACKSON is the author of a book about his life of daring do.

In this book, JACKSON makes a series of outlandish claims about his military service and has committed at least one copyright offence against the Australian War Memorial in the process.

 

 

The first part of his story regarding his flight to Butterworth in a Canberra Bomber with a group of British Airman he met is simply ridiculous.   Anyone familiar with Defence Force Movements would know that the RAAF would not fly a Carpenter to Butterworth in a Canberra Bomber.   Anyone familiar with the Canberra Bomber would also know that it has no room for passengers.   The Canberra was one of the first jet bombers in RAAF Service, with a crew of two and just enough room to squeeze one other, very uncomfortably into the cockpit space if really necessary.   NO Jacko, this flight of fancy definitely did not happen!

 

JACKSON is more than a wannabe and medal cheat, he is a ‘Valour Thief’.   The reader will note from the extract of his book (above), he is claiming to be one of the persons photographed on operations in Malaya.   This is a total fabrication, a complete despicable lie.   The photograph can be viewed on the Australian War Memorial’s Website by following the link:

https://www.awm.gov.au/collection/ELL/58/0283/MC/

You can see clearly that it is the same photograph as that being used by JACKSON in his book.   The true description of the photograph is:

JACKSON was a Carpenter in the RAAF, and did not see any combat service in Malaya or any other area of conflict.   JACKSON is nothing but a fraud and by his own hand, a Valour Thief.

The reader will note that JACKSON attempts to get around the copyright issue of the photograph by suggesting that:

‘My daughter and son-in-law found this photo in the Canberra war museum.   After thoroughly checking with the museum, they were allowed to take a photo so they can present to me as memories’

We are not sure who proof read his autobiography, but they clearly missed that sentence.   None the less, the statement is false, there is no evidence to support the fact that he used the image with permission, if any part of the statement were true, then the image was intended as a private memento, not for use in a book which was written to increase the bank account of JACKSON.  

Here is clear evidence of a breach of copyright.   JACKSON cannot even get the correct name of the Australian War Memorial, from whom he ‘borrowed’ the image, instead calling it the Canberra war museum.

By claiming to be one of the individuals in the photograph, JACKSON has also clearly committed an offence under the Defence Act, 1903 in that:

DEFENCE ACT 1903 - SECT 80A

Falsely representing to be returned soldier, sailor or airman

(1) A person is guilty of an offence if:

(a) the person represents himself or herself to be a returned soldier, sailoror airman; and

(b) the representation is false.

Penalty: 30 penalty units or imprisonment for 6 months, or both.

Turning now to the circumstances surrounding the award of the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) and the Australian Sports Medal.

JACKSON was awarded the OAM (Civil Division) and the Australian Sports Medal for his alleged achievements in the sport of karate.   Achievements, which we have learned that are based on questionable qualifications, dodgy certificates and actions which mark JACKSON as a person not fit to wear the awards bestowed on him.

Clearly, JACKSON is a person who likes to ‘big note’ himself, this can be seen on the front cover of his book where he addresses himself as:

  Hanshi Anthony Jackson – OAM, ASM

First things first.   The use of ASM (in reference to the Australian Sports Medal) is just wrong.   The sports medal has no post nominals, unlike the Medal of the Order of Australia which has the post nominals of OAM.   Many wannabes misuse post nominals as JACKSON has done, simply to make the person appear that little bit more important than everyone else.

In the world of Martial Arts, the tern Hanshi refers to a senior expert considered to be a "teacher of teachers".   This title is used by many different arts for the top few instructors of that style, and is sometimes translated "Grand Master".

In reality, JACKSON is considered to be a questionable character in the karate world and has a history of issuing false qualification certificates and falsifying records of the sports Japanese links.   Here is an example of what we mean:

We were supplied with the above certificate from a source within the karate world to show the lengths JACKSON will go to enhance his perceived significance in the sport.   JACKSON has signed the certificate as the examiner but had no authority to do so.   Note the issue date on the certificate – 1984.    That date is significant in relation to the award of the OAM and the Australian Sports Medal.

Note the signature of Shigeki Izuni, now here it is again in a letter to JACKSON reprimanding him for issuing false certificates in 1989, (bearing in mind, he was awarded the OAM for his ‘excellence’ in the sport only twelve months earlier):  

And again in 1991, it is clear his admonishment failed, but what is important is the fact that any authority he held was revoked.   Again, note the signature of Shigeki Izuni, a signature which has been verified and compare that to the signature that appears on the fake certificate and make up your own mind.

 

There is a clear history of JACKSON falsifying records in the sport going back to at least 1984 and given his involvement in the sport prior to this incident, serious doubt must be raised about the supporting evidence used to nominate him for the award of both the OAM and the Australian Sports Medal.   Given that he was awarded the OAM in 1988 and the sports medal in 2000 there is little doubt that the evidence used was false.   It is most likely to us he has coopted one of his close friends to nominate him the awards.

This is not the first time that a person on our website has been caught out falsifying their history to have an OAM awarded.   Here is a very good example of such a fraud:

Hammal, Roque Charles

In our initial exposure of JACKSON, he seemed to us to be a just a bit of a clown, wearing uniforms and awarding himself medals.   That is still the case, but since that first report we have learned much more about Anthony JACKSON and we are in no doubt that he is a wannabe, a medal cheat and worst of all a valor thief.   He has claimed service he has no entitlement to claim and even attempted to attribute to himself a photograph of true heroes, committing a copyright offence in the process.

JACKSON is a fraud, he has a lengthy history of questionable behavior in the sport of karate where he is viewed as a crook.   The circumstances surrounding the award of the OAM and Australian Sports Medal must be questioned in light of the evidence provided and action taken to remove these honours from him.

Let us all hope that the Australian War Memorial and the Secretariat to the Australian Honours System take notice of this exposure and take appropriate action against JACKSON.
