Case Notes:



David Laing was the President of the Murray Bridge, Returned and Services League (RSL) Sub Branch.


Whilst officiating at the Sub Branch he wore three peacetime Defence medals as shown above. The medals are:

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)
Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM)
Australian Cadets Medal (ACM)

Laing is entitled to wear only the ADM and the ACM, he was never involved with National Service, and was wearing the medal illegally.

Despite his initial dishonesty, when he was exposed, he gallantly "fell on his sword" and penned the following email:


As is the case with Laing, being a medals cheat can very much disrupt your world. Veterans and ex service persons, all over Australia are on watch for offenders, and will submit reports

Simply put, it is not worth it.

Laing resigned as the President of the Murray Bridge RSL Sub Branch. He is now eligible to be President of the Wannabe Sub Branch on this webs site.
