Keough Update – 11 February 2018

ANZMI’s initial exposure of Norbert Keough (aka Maclean III) revealed a story of lies and deceit by this fraud and wannabe.   As part of our evidence to support the claims was a very revealing newspaper story which was printed in 1993.   At the time, ‘Norb’ (as we now know him) was running for election in the United States.

The article, in it’s original format was part of our exposure; however, a number of readers have experienced difficulty reading the story.   To assist the reader, and further strengthen the evidence against Norb, we have transcribed the report in its entirety below.

The article speaks loudly about the character and actions of Norb back then and provides a very revealing insight into the person he really is.

The astute reader will no doubt also note that nowhere in this revealing article is there any mention of service in the Gulf War and the timeframes mentioned in this newspaper report future support the claim that ‘Norb’ is a medal cheat and wannabe for claiming service during the Gulf War.  

As we alluded to in our initial report, any political party considering throwing support behind Norb should be very mindful of his actions in the past.  

The Tasmanian RSL now need to step up to the plate and take appropriate action against Norbert Keough (Maclean III) who was dishonourably discharged from the US Navy and should never been allowed to join either the NSW or Tasmanian RSL.   We hope the new National President of the RSL, who was the former Tasmanian President takes notice of the type of people being allowed membership of the League.

Bad Checks followed withdrawn Assembly candidate

By Beth Whitehouse and Steven Chambers (Press Staff Writers)

 

On New Years Eve 1991, Norbert MacLean III threw a party at the Berkeley-Carteret Hotel in Asbury Park.   He mailed formal invitations.   He rolled a red carpet from the doorway of the presidential suite to the elevator.

He hung a United Nations flag at the doorway.   He posted signs that read, “Reserved for Ambassador MacLean” in the parking area for the white limousine he’d rented.

 For months, Maclean had been claiming to be an ambassador.

“He got very offended if you called him Mr MacLean,” JoAnne Guertin, former front office manager at the Berkeley-Carteret said, “He wanted ‘Ambassador Maclean’”

Maclean, a former Lakehurst resident whose father is that town’s police chief, is far from an ambassador.   He’s a 22 year-old former Navy sailor recently court-martialed after being charged with bouncing 81 checks.

Just two weeks ago, MacLean was seeking legitimacy in a different forum.   He was on the November ballot as an independent candidate for one of the two State Assembly seats in coastal Monmouth County’s 11th District.

Maclean announced his withdrawal from the race on May 19, the day after an interview with the Asbury Park Press during which he was confronted with the Navy charges and other instances of bounced checks.   An official in Maclean’s campaign said the interview had not prompted the candidate’s decision.

…’The reason for this painful decision is because of unfinished business with the United States Navy in Washington, DC,” Maclean wrote in a letter to Secretary of State Daniel J. Dalton.

People who know Maclean say a penchant for exaggerating his importance and living beyond his means gets him into trouble.   Many of the checks he was charged with bouncing were for such things as cellular phones and black-tie fund-raiser tickets.

In a freewheeling interview last month about his candidacy and his troubles with the US Navy, Maclean painted himself as a concerned citizen with a background in public service.   He said he is a gay man who was persecuted by the Navy he served so well.

Others, particularly those who ended up with his bad checks, said the Long Branch resident is nothing but a con man.

…” If I lived in the district, he wouldn’t be getting my vote,”   Bill Ulrey, executive director of the Assembly Republican Majority, said before Maclean withdrew his name from the ballot.   Ulrey received a $1,200 that bounced as payment for two thickets Maclean used to attend a state fund-raiser in 1991.   “If this guy can’t honor a personal check, imagine what he would do in Tenton with taxpayer’s dollars.”

Maclean declined to discuss specifics of any of the 81 bad checks the Navy claimed he wrote, nor would he discuss other instances of bad checks that did not lead to charges.

…” Believe me…I would love to sit down and be able to discuss things in detail with you, but you have to understand this is in litigation,” Maclean said.   “I am pressing extremely hard to get this worked out before November”

On leave from the Navy pending appeal of his case, Maclean said he was getting in touch with the people of the 11th District and running a full-time, professional campaign.   If he loses the appeal, his sentence of a dishonourable discharge and jail time served will stand.

A government source said Maclean said Maclean wrote at least 81 bad personal checks from more than 10 banks from Washington, D.C., to Florida for a total of more than $36,280.   There are more alleged bad checks the government isn’t aware of, such as the ones written to the Berkeley-Carteret Hotel.

At least one of the 81 checks was for more than $6000, another for as little as $1.42, according to the government source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.   After a court-martial hearing in August, Maclean was found guilty of passing a dozen bad checks totalling $*,169.30.

On Oct. 31, he was sentenced to be dishonourably discharged from the Navy, to forfeit all pay, and to be imprisoned for 40 months, according to Lt. Kate Mueller, a Navy spokesman.   As per an earlier agreement, the prison sentence was reduced to four months he had already served in the Marine Brig at Quantico, Va, Mueller said.

Writing bad checks is not unusual.   But it is unusual for a young man to know the political system so well that he writes congressmen and other officials for help, the source said.

A claimed conspiracy    

Maclean said the Navy charges are a conspiracy to discredit him because he had a top-secret security clearance and was trained to decipher coded information.   He said he’s being mistreated because he is gay and pointed to the anti-gay climate surrounding the presidential primaries last year.

The government source scoffed at the notion.

“Nobody woke up one morning and said, ‘Let’s get Norbert Maclean,’” the source said.

Perhaps the biggest victim of Maclean was The Children’s Home of Burlington County.   The private, non-profit home for 50 emotionally disturbed boys between ages 10 and 16 is in Mount Holly.   Maclean offered to run a black-tie, fund-raising dinner in Washington, D.C.   Tickets sold for $100 a plate, according to a New Jersey woman who attended the dinner.

The dinner took place on April 13, 1991 at the Belling Air Force Base officers club.   About 70 people attended, the woman said.   Maclean, dressed in a tuxedo, gave a speech.

Afterward, Maclean allegedly wrote a check to the officers club for more than $6000 to pay for the dinner.   It bounced, according to the government source.

Maclean also allegedly wrote a check for nearly $2000 to the children’s home.   It also bounced, the source said.

A representative of the children’s home had no comment.   “We haven’t had any notification of the investigation being completed, so we can’t comment,” said Karen Muldoon, a home spokeswoman.

Where the money from the dinner went, government investigators don’t know.

In an interview last year, Maclean said the Navy made errors depositing his paychecks and also said that some of his checkbooks were missing.

…” Everybody bounces a check here and there,” he said then.   “I’m not going to comment on what exactly occurred.”

Maclean also allegedly duped the political party to which he claimed to be loyal.   When then-President Bush came to the Ramada Renaissance Hotel in East Brunswick Township Sept. 19, 1991, for a fund-raising dinner, Maclean made sure he was there as well.

He called Ulrey, who was then finance director for the Republican State Committee, about a week before the event and ordered two tickets at $600 each.

Maclean sent a check, complete with a little Republican elephant symbol embossed next to his name.   Ulrey said Maclean showed up at the dinner in a limousine.

The check bounced.   Maclean still owes $1200, Ulrey said.

Matt Caracappa, Red Bank, met Maclean around Christmas 1991 and hosted the New Year’s Eve party with him.  He said he’s gotten bad checks from Maclean as well, one for $1200 that was supposed to pay for his share of the New Year’s Eve bash.

For a while, Caracappa believed Maclean’s story that he was an ambassador.   After all, Maclean was constantly in a limousine.   In his own car he had a cellular phone and would use it often.

…” He had stationary printed up,” Caracappa said.   It say’s “His Excellency Norbert B. Maclean III United States Representative to the United Nations Association.”

But Caracappa said he started getting suspicious when Maclean showed up so often in New Jersey.   “He would drive to New Jersey like you drive to 7-Eleven,” Caracappa, a contractor said.   “When did he work?”

Caracappa said he believes Maclean is a con artist.

“He is a pro.   What he has gotten away with so far – it’s like a television movie.”   Caracappa said.   “He’s really very convincing.   It’s just a bogus con job.   A little boy with a big imagination”.

 After graduation from Manchester Township High School in 1989, Maclean enlisted in the Navy and eventually served as administrative assistant to Richard L. Armitage, President Bush’s special negotiator at the State Department, Navy spokeswoman Mueller said.   He received a Joint Service Achievement Medal for his work during negotiations with the Philippines over military bases.

 In an interview last year, Maclean conceded that his early successes may have led him to try to inflate his own importance.

 …” Anybody would let their ego run a little wild,” he said.   “Maybe I might have exaggerated – not exaggerated, I wouldn’t say that.”   Maybe (I) overinflated the significance of what was happening or what was going on, but that wasn’t to the detriment of anybody and it wasn’t intentional.   As for being an ambassador to the United Nations Association of America, all you have to do is pay the association, which is a nationwide, non-profit educational organization.   People who donate $500 are called patriots; people who donate $1000 are called ambassadors.   Maclean never did that though, said John Brenan, membership director.

How it worked

This was the way Maclean operated, according to the government: He would go into a bank and open an account.   The bank would send him checks for the account.   Maclean would return to the bank and close the account.   Afterward, he’d write checks to people, and they would get notices saying the account had been closed.

Maclean allegedly got a stamp made that would show the checks had been cleared.   He would go to the bank with the check, and when the bank said the account had been closed, Maclean denied having closed the accounts.

Jacob Cohen, owner of the Hot Spot Deli in Ashbury Park, learned about the system the hard way.   Cohen catered a party for Maclean on April 30 to announce his candidacy.

The candidate called back a week later to say the $137 check he had written for the party was no good, but he would be sending another, Cohen said.   When Cohen called the Virginia bank, he was told the account was closed more than a month before.

In the interview last month, Maclean denied he ever wrote the check, although Cohen later produced the check.   Cohen said that on the day Maclean withdrew his name from the ballot, he showed up at the deli and made good on what he owed.

 

Preface

We, ANZMI would like to preface this report with this comment.   No doubt, when this report appears on our Website there will be angst and insults from contemporaries and allies of Norbert Keough, some of those people already have found a place on our Website because of their lies.   No doubt, Mr Keough himself will lead the charge against us.   ANZMI will be accused of being veiled website assassins, homophobic, and much, much more.   We are used to that.   Before reaching for the keyboard to pass judgement on us, think of this.   ANZMI did not seek out Norbert Keough, he put himself out there, he created the story that is now falling in around him, he is the one who threatened genuine veterans who expressed concerns about him, both in Australia and the United States.   Norbert Keough has sought public recognition for his efforts, but with that recognition comes scrutiny.   Mr Keough has actively sought to remove much of the details of his background from the public record.   This is right, but he must also remember that once documents are made public there is a right to question his credentials.   Yes, he may threaten legal action, and yes, he may suggest that it is his sexuality that is behind this report and yes, his political allies may challenge ANZMI, but that still does not excuse his actions, nor does the written record lie.    

And now to the Facts:

With all the illumination of a star burst shell, Norbert KEOGH appeared in the ranks of the NSW RSL and became quiet a mover and shaker, initially through the North Bondi RSL Sub Branch and various veteran’s organisations and projects such as the “Keep 45 Alive”, an RSL project aimed at remembering World War 2 Veterans, he maintained a close relationship with past and present executive members of the RSL.   Norbert seemed destined for a stellar career in the NSW RSL, that is until people started to question him about his service and a bit of a smell started to appear.

When Norbert Keough was treading the boards of the NSW RSL, he managed to create for himself quite a persona.   In his day, a google search would have found a lot of information about Norb, primarily the information he wanted you to know.   He was certainly wanted it to be known he was an important cog in the wheel and managed to link himself with some notable identifies:

Norb1 2017 12 06

The entire article (assuming its author has not removed it) can be found at:

https://www.thefullwiki.org/Returned_and_Services_League_of_Australia

He has also managed to write (or his biographer wrote) quiet a well researched history of Norbert, this can be found at:

http://www.thefullwiki.org/Norbert_Basil_MacLean_III

This is a very demanding read, so make yourself a cup of coffee before delving into the life of Norbert Keough.   If you are able to work your way through the pages of rhetoric, claims of false convictions, failed appeals and the classic ‘everyone has it in for me’ complex.

Whoever wrote the article, and we think we know who it was, has an intimate knowledge of Norbert, and despite the lengthy legalese used throughout is there any evidence whatsoever that Norbert Keough was not discharged from the US Navy after pleading guilty, and being found guilty of fraud at a Court Martial.

Norbert Keough, or ‘Norb’ as he likes to be called presents himself as a distinguished veteran of the US Navy, a Gulf War Veteran, a champion of veteran’s rights, and a non-practising Barrister.   Don’t however, challenge Norb’s credentials as he is very keen to litigate.   We wonder why?

The truth is, Norb is nothing but a fraud.   Yes, he did serve in the US Navy but if you can call being discharged after being Court Martialled ‘distinguished’ you probably believe the rest of his stories.

After threatening a number of senior members of the RSL with legal action for daring to ask legitimate questions about his past, Norb relocated to Tasmania where he reinvented himself in the Tasmanian RSL and picked up work with Jackie Lambie as an advisor on Veterans Affairs.   It also seems Norb is keen to have a tilt at politics.

Norb has created the image of a distinguished US Navy Veteran to enhance his public image, but in doing so, has left a trail of confusing photographs which depict changing medal entitlements, service not consistent with the published record, and lies about his actual service history.

This includes,

  1. Wearing the US Presidential Service Badge (Not entitled)
  2. Wearing US Medals associated with Service in the Gulf War (1990-1991) namely the Kuwait Liberation Medal – Saudi Arabia and the Kuwait Liberation Medal - Kuwait

Norb1a

Norbert Maclean III (Keough) enlisted in the US Navy on the 1st November 1989 and was discharged following a Court Martial on 29th August 1994.   Keough was the subject of a Court Martial for several counts of writing bad cheques which totalled over $US8000 and a charge of AWOL.

Early on in his career with the RSL in NSW, Norb was photographed a number of times at various functions.   In these images (above) he is clearly seen wearing the US Presidential Service Badge.

The criteria for the award of this decoration is:

‘The PSB is awarded after at least one year of satisfactory service "to any member of the Armed Forces assigned to duty in the White House Office or to military units and support facilities under the administration of the Military Assistant to the President by the Secretary of the Army, the Secretary of the Navy, the Secretary of the Air Force, or, when the Coast Guard is not operating as a service in the Navy, the Secretary of Homeland Security, upon recommendation of the Military Assistant to the President". It is accompanied by a certificate and miniature lapel version. The PSB is recorded in the individual's military service records and is authorised for wear as a permanent decoration.

Recipients are, other than the President and uniformed members of the U.S. Secret Service, the only Americans authorized to wear the "Presidential Seal or Coat of Arms" on their uniforms and civilian clothes.’

There is no record of this decoration having been awarded to Norbert Keough/Maclean III, and it appears for reasons only known to himself, he has ceased wearing it as far as we know.  

Norb2 2017 12 06

The dates of service have been confirmed by US Navy Records.   The Court Martial took place in 1992 and following that conviction, he took Leave Without Pay (LWOP) from the date of conviction until discharge while appealing the Court Martial findings.   Information from the US indicates that Keough spent 120 days in a military prison awaiting Court Martial.   Following the finding of GUILTY, a further custodial sentence was commuted for time already served in custody. From enlistment to discharge is a period of about 56 months.   Details on the Court Martial will be provided later in this report.   Suffice to say, that following a number of appeals, Keough was successful in having the AWOL charge overturned, but the finding of the Court Martial that he be dishonourably discharged (bad conduct discharge) was upheld.  Despite numerous appeals by Keough, THERE IS NO EVIDENCE to support claims the Court Martial decision to discharge Keough has ever been overturned.

GAY SAILOR SUES TO STAY IN

By Nick Adde

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - An avowedly gay sailor discharged for writing bad
checks sued the Navy for $40.1 million, claiming he was drummed out for a
crime he did not commit.

Norbert Basil MacLean III, 23, was convicted by general court-martial in
1992 on three counts of writing bad checks, totaling $8,169. He was
sentenced to confinement for 40 months, forfeiture of all pay and
benefits, reduction in grade to E-1, and a bad conduct discharge.

Because MacLean pleaded guilty, the judge reduced his jail time to 118
days, which he had served. He is on leave without pay from the Navy while
appealing the case.

MacLean said he is the victim of a "conspiracy" by Navy superiors and
criminal investigators. His commanding officer, Cmdr. Robert W. Cosgriff,
asked the Naval Investigative Service to watch him, the sailor said.
"Apparently, they found out I was gay at that time," he said.

But papers filed by prosecutors during MacLean's court martial tell a
different story.

Cosgriff, then commanding officer at the Naval Security Station in
Washington, D.C., received numerous reports from local merchants that
MacLean had bounced checks, according to prosecutors. As a result,
Cosgriff asked the NIS to investigate the sailor, who at the time worked
for Richard Armitage, a senior State Department official in the Bush
administration.

MacLean's sexual orientation became known only when he announced it, Navy
sources said.

MacLean claimed the bounced checks were caused by direct deposit
foul-ups. The Navy would not comment. on MacLean's claims.

The troubles with direct deposit were deliberate, Mac Lean said, part of
a "malicious" attempt to remove him from service. He said he pleaded
guilty because his command was holding him in the brig until he did so.

MacLean's court-martial appeal is pending before the Navy-Marine Corps
Court of Military Review. The government must respond to his civil suit
by July 20.

The part of appeal (regarding the AWOL) was overturned, however no evidence can be found to support his claim that the conviction for fraud and subsequent discharge was ever over turned.   There have been numerous attempts by Keough to murky the waters, and numerous appeals by him.   The simple fact is he is guilty and his conviction recorded in his 1992 Court Martial stands today.   Evidence of some of his appeal can be found at:

http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/appellate-courts/F3/454/1334/489740/

Norbert Maclean III came to Australia an about 2008 and reinvented himself as Norbert Keough.

As is clearly identified in Keough’s Service Record, he was awarded four (4) US Awards:

  • Joint Service Achievement Medal
  • National Defense Service Ribbon
  • Navy ‘E’ Ribbon
  • Navy Rifle Marksman
  • Navy Pistol Marksman  

Norb3 2017 12 06

Early on in his RSL NSW career, Norb was photographed wearing medals, consistent with the record, with a couple of (what are believed to be) US Navy Reserve Officers Training Corps (ROTC) cadet medals (unofficial) which would have been awarded to him when he was a member of his school’s ROTC (School Cadets) unit.

Norb4 2017 12 06

 Norb4a

 The above image, despite being in black and white depicts the young Cadet Norb wearing two decorations which look very much like those being worn in his early RSL career.

Not listed on the record is evidence of the award of South-West Asia Service Medal for service in the Philippines.   It is for this service that he was allegedly awarded the Joint Service Achievement Medal, which came with a rather verbose certificate.   The authenticity of this certificate has also been questioned by US veterans, however as no evidence is available to refute the claim, we have given him the benefit of the doubt.   Importantly, the dates recorded on the certificate indicate he was performing these exceptional duties from June 1991 to September 1991.

Now, this is where Norb’s service history gets interesting.   If we accept the US Navy record as fact, he enlisted on 1st November 1989, and completed basic training (10 weeks).   Allowing for Christmas 89-90 he completes this training in mid-January 1990.   He then undertakes specialist training and as can be seen in the next image, graduates on 11 May 1990.    

Norb5 2017 12 06

In this image, Norbert Keough can be seen wearing the rank of Seaman (E3).  

So, the question is, where was Norb from May 1990, until June 1991 when he allegedly appears a Petty Officer Third Class working for the Special Negotiator, US/Philippine Base Negotiations office?   Well, thanks to our friends in the United States we have found out what he was doing on New Year’s Eve 1991.   Norb was pretending to be an Ambassador with the United Nations and after booking into the Presidential Suite of a flash hotel in Ashbury Park, then threw a swank party, even going so far as to have a car park reserved for his official vehicle and demanding that the staff refer to him as Mr Ambassador, and had red carpet from the doorway of his suite to the elevator.

Norb6

This very enlightening article about Norb, it quiet succinctly sums up the circumstances which lead to his Court Martial.   A very different story than he would have us believe.    

We now know from the evidence available that from New Years’ Eve 1991, Norb was busy partying and writing dodgy cheques as detailed in the article above from the Ashbury Park Press until June 1991.   That leaves us with a six-month period from May 1990 (graduation from training) and December 1990 (known to be in US).  

If his story is to be believed, this is the only period of time he could have served in the Gulf War.   He certainly claims to have done so.

Norb7 2017 12 06

How times change, Norb appears to rid himself of some of the unofficial medals to make was for the Kuwait Liberation Medal – Saudi Arabia and the Kuwait Liberation Medal – Kuwait.  

Norb8 2017 12 06

By his own timeline and the evidence trail left by him, there is no possible way Keough could have served in the Gulf War during the period needed to qualify for the awards he wears.

Knowing what we do about Norb’s story so far, we turn our attention to the ‘wings’ he wears above his medal rack.   Contrary to popular belief, these are not aircrew insignia but rather, a US Navy award known as the Enlisted Aviation Warfare Specialist Insignia.

Norb9 2017 12 06

There is no doubt this is the award he is wearing.

Norb10 2017 12 06

The qualification requirements for the award of the EAWS badge are quite extensive and rather than recount them here, the reader is invited to follow the link to Wikipedia for a detailed explanation of the award.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enlisted_Aviation_Warfare_Specialist_insignia

Clearly, given the information already at hand, there is no possible way that Norbert Keough completed this qualification, nor does it appear on the extract of his service record provided under the Freedom of Information process.

The award he wears should not be confused with the Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist Badge which typically takes 18 months to achieve, there is simply not enough time in his timeline for him to have achieved all he claims.   It is as simple as that.

ANZMI has been investigating Norbert Keough’s claims following numerous requests from Veterans in NSW and Tasmania, for many months however we have not been alone.   In October 2017, the Sydney Morning Herald published the results of their own investigation, which can be found at:

http://www.smh.com.au/federal-politics/political-news/jacqui-lambies-advisor-norbert-oconnorkeoughs-long-and-winding-past-20171001-gys97y.html

Keough’s response to the Sydney Morning Herald was the same as it has been for everyone else who has dared to question his credentials, - he threatens legal action rather than explain the glaring anomalies in his story.

The facts in this case are straight forward once you cut through the maze of falsehoods left by Keough.   He is wearing medals and decorations he is not entitled to wear, and by virtue of the US Navy regulations, a person discharged by Court Martial is not entitled to wear any medals, even those awarded during service.   (Reference: The Navy Uniform Regulations, Chapter 6, paragraph 61002, sub paragraph 7).

Norbert Basil Keough (aka Maclean III) is a fraud, he has been a fraud most of his adult life and he has clearly been caught out wearing medals for service in the Gulf war for which he has not entitlement at all.   So why is he a member of the RSL?   Perhaps the Tasmanian RSL can do the research we have done to uncover the truth as everything about Norbert is in the public domain.

 

 

Norb11a

 

Norb11b

As can be seen from the information above, Norb is quiet the litigate, but as can be clearly seen, all his appeals have been denied.   The Court Martial findings stand.

After his discharge from the Navy, Norb made numerous appearances in US Newspapers, telling his story of how he has been wronged, so it is ironic that these very same newspaper stories bring him down.   Take the following report for example, the article provides evidence of a Court win by Norb, but it’s what is doesn’t say that is interesting.   Norbs service in the Navy is detailed for all to see, but nowhere does it mention service in the Gulf War.   An oversight? we think not

Norb12

No doubt, ANZMI will be threatened with legal action because of this report, but before shooting the messenger, remember it is Norbert Keough who has sought publicity, it is he and his supporters who have suggested he will stand for election, so as a public figure, is it not right that he answer the genuine concerns of the Veterans community raised in this report?   We at ANZMI think yes.

Much of the rhetoric used by Keough in attacking those who challenge him is to play the homophobic card.   His sexuality has nothing whatsoever to do with this issue.   He has set out from day one to deceive and to portray himself as a veteran that he is not, the time has come for him to answer the obvious questions and explain his lies.

Is Norbert Keough/Maclean III a fit and proper person to be elected to Parliament?   Well, that is clearly a decision for the voters.   Is Norbert Keough/Maclean III a fit and proper person to be a member of the RSL, or to advocate on Veterans issues?   Clearly the answer is NO.

Call us keyboard warriors if you will, but this is what ANZMI does, it exposes those among the Veteran community who are nothing but frauds, those people who ingratiate themselves into Veterans organisations and get their way by shouting down the silent majority of genuine Veterans who would dare to challenge stories that simply don’t ring true but can’t afford or fear the stress of legal action, albeit veracious legal action which is the common response of the wannabe and fraudster.

This is why ANZMI is here.

Kerry Roy BLAIR believed to reside in Tasmania served in the Australian Army with the Australian Army Catering Corps (AACC) and did one tour of South Vietnam.

The reason he appears on our site is that he claims to have served with the Australian Special Air Service and was wounded.



I



We are in possession of Statutory Declarations that Kerry Blair and his wife made the following statements.


Kerry Roy Blair has obviously been telling these lies for some time as well as to his wife who believes him. You will also note that the term “medivac” was used this term is used for evacuation back to Australia for a medical illness. A combat incident was referred to as a Casevac from the field.

Here is his military history.

61821 Kerry Roy Blair enlisted in the army for 3 years on 07 June 1967, completed his recruit training at 1 Recruit Training Battalion, Kapooka and was allocated to the AACC for corps training. He was posted to Southern Command as a Steward on 03 November 1967. He attended training at the Jungle Training Centre (JTC) and was posted to Headquarters 1st Australian Logistic Support Group in Vung Tau, South Vietnam which was a large logistic base and a Rest and Recreation Centre for troops at the main Australian Task Force to have time off from a combat area. He was promoted to temporary Lance Corporal 23 June 1969.
 



On returning to Australia 28 January 1970 he was posted to Headquarters Puckapunyal as a Steward and discharged from the army 06 June 1970. He re-enlisted in the Australia Regular Army Reserve for 5 years as a Steward.

He was awarded the Vietnam Medal, South Vietnam Campaign Medal and the returned from Active Service Badge

For a person who has stepped on a landmine, he still has both legs and no sign of any injury as can be seen in the photograph.


 


Kerry Roy Blair you have been telling quite some tall tales for a number of years and it has caught up with you. You and others like you who tell lies about their service will grace our website for years to come.

Jack Keinzley - Masterton New Zealand

 

Nahhhhh this fake and impostor is a nephew of the famous Jack Keinzley - one of those imbeciles who like to pretend that he, similar to his famous uncle was a real veteran who had been involved in many conflicts. This clowns only service was as a "Seaman boy" for eight months before he was discharged in 1961 for failing Navy physical standards.

 

 

 

Jack Keinzley – the fake – resides in Masterton in the South East of the North Island. He has also spread lies around his hometown.    When he worked as a cleaner at the Masterton hospital he told work mates about his service as a Navy diver who served in Vietnam another time when he was a patient at the same hospital he spread the word that he was having some shrapnel removed.  This is his photo below

 

 

The real Jack Keinzley was a renowned New Zealand soldier who served as the Regimental Sergeant Major of Royal New Zealand Artillery Unit, 161 Battery in Vietnam in 1968.   Here is a photo of the real Jack Keinzley, taken at Nui Dat in 1968.

 

 

This insipid nephew of the real Jack Keinzley has been caught out either stealing the identity of his famous uncle or trying to emulate his service.  

It seems that on last ANZAC day when the fake Keinzley was photographed the photographers were so taken by his chest full of medals that they forgot to catch his countenance and we ask that if anyone can help by supplying a recent photo of this dill we will display him prominently at the start of the story.

ANZMI, like many genuine New Zealand veterans are waiting with interest to see if any charges are laid against Keinzley.

We know that our neighbours across the Tasman don't like being told what to do, but I'm sure that all New Zealand veterans will agree when we ask them that next time this dill shows his face at a veterans function to remove him from the scene - with pomp and ceremony, and at the same time drink a toast to the real Jack Keinzley a renowned soldier who does not deserve being emulated by a stupid nephew.

Below are follow up newspaper clippings resulting from the fake Keinzley's appearance on ANZAC Day 2007.

Case Notes:


Paul Jenkyn - Got a surprise when he was leaving  the Navy.

In this exposure we ask you to be the judge, we will give no opinion one way or the other. A less than open organization, may well tell Jenkyn to go to hell, and accept the fact that he has been caught telling lies, and decided to tell an even bigger lie to cover his tracks. We however will not say such a thing.

Jenkyn-1

Jenkyn-2

Above is a present day photograph and a photograph from when he was a young sailor.

At a Vietnam Veterans Counselling Service, Lifestyle Course on the Sunshine Coast, he introduced himself as an ex Navy Clearance Diver who changed to Special Air Services Regiment (SASR) who had been deployed to Somalia and Rwanda and was involved in the SASR tragic Blackhawk Helicopter accident at High Range in the Townsville area of Queensland on the 12 June 1996.  

For a bit of extra passion he included that he held his dying mate after the accident until he took his last breath.  When asked about his Rwanda service he could answer none of the questions about the deployment and said it was because “of being in “hides” and taking out high ranking targets with snipers”. His knowledge of Somalia was equally as vague and he could not answer any questions posed.

It is known that Jenkyn had been telling his wife tales of his “Deployments” for the whole ten years they had been together.

As well as spruiking at the Lifestyle Course he also committed his “Deployments” in writing on his Facebook page:  See below:

Jenkyn-3

Jenkyn-4

During the Lifestyle Course, and on his facebook page, he was questioned about his “stories” and he realized that his deception would no longer serve.

The nub of his problem was that he claims, he was hiding the real reason for his Post Traumatic Stress Disorder “PTSD” and in fairness we present his alternative story.

Below you will read that on the last or second last day of his service in the Navy, he was raped by another “Sailor” before being cast adrift.  Read on:

“After receiving a phone call from your organisation yesterday the following is a post from my wife on a support for PTSD s on Face book & quot (sic);

So thankfully things have been going really well at home over the past few weeks... until today. Some guy rang Paul from ANZMI about people saying things that weren't true about their military service. Paul again went through the whole thing, dragged up the past, talked about what had happened to him and why this story developed. Apparently this guy just laughed at him.

(Note: Unfortunately the ANZMI Investigator did “snigger’, but only once, and that was when Jenkyn stated that DVA would not accept his compensation claim because the rape did not occur during working hours. For this peccadillo, the ANZMI investigator has been given anti sniggering counseling)

Of course Paul got so angry. What do you expect? I can understand why these people may be upset with people that do this stuff but they're friggin' insensitive and nieve (sic) if they think that all stories are the same and these guys are bad people. We talk about supporting people with a mental illness, not shaming them. People that then decide that shaming is the best action are immatture (sic) and just showing that they are just as emotionally immature as those they are attacking
 
Even worse though is that they are doing it with the arrogance of entitlement and defence.

So if I told you all I was a model or Doctor or some other prestigious occupation to cover up the fact that I felt so shit about myself because I was raped would you all shame me?

It's such a massive kick in the pants. 4 weeks ago he was close to suicide. I was going mental and so worried about how I would tell our daughter that Daddy wasn't around. My heart was breaking when xxxxxx was telling me that Daddy was going somewhere and not coming back.

I was close to suicide because I just couldn't cope anymore. The only thing keeping me alive was my daughter. I didn't really care what happened to me. I just wanted this circus, this anger and craziness to end. I have since turned a corner. I have done another course with VVCS, got heaps of support for myself and it's been only a few weeks that I'm waking up feeling happy, happy to be alive, just that spontaneous kind of happy that I haven't felt in years.

Much of this is also due to watching Paul turn things around. He's been through a massive cathartic time, a time to reassess his values and fight for what he wants. He's thrown himself into therapy, and this time the consistent therapy he needs, with weekly appointments, exercising and really trying. It's been a thrill to watch him grow and face his demons, and his vulnerability... now this dickhead that rang today apparently just sniggered and laughed at Paul when he poured his heart out.

His story is one he's kept to himself for nearly 20 years and I know that his main reason for pushing on, for staying alive is me, and xxxxx. Now that's not friggin fair. Paul hasn't deliberately hurt anyone.

Yes he has a poison toungue (sic) at time which is charged with so much anger from so much pain he's capable of flying off the handle at anyone, and as much as I understand that is PTSD. He hasn't molestered (sic) anyone, or a murderer or a criminal, he hasn't ripped off anyone or got anything he wasn't entitled too.

He was just trying to save face when inside he felt like absolute shit about some terrible abuse he copped on his last day in the Navy. Enough of my ranting, but probably a positive one in that I'm actually proud of my husband here.

A guy who's doing his best with the hand he's been delt (sic)... it's just a shame that there's insensitive arseholes out there that must have such a shit life that all they want to do is to make someone else's miserable to make them feel better.... Now I will have my say. As I can see from your website you do not have the guts to provided any contact phone numbers. But thus will not be an issues for me .

I will be reporting you Monday morning to DVA, VVCS, DART the Police for harassment   and will be discussing this issue with my legal council. You have this agenda to find imposters, and I understand that cause.

You don't not represent the Government in any capacity. And to have Bill who called me laughing at me as I tried to explain that I was brutally raped on my last day of service and need an excuse to show sympathy for my aggressive outbursts is utterly deplorable. You have know idea on the ramifications this phone call has had on me but as Bill said yesterday , he does not care.

I have never been to an Anzac parade since 1986 out of disgust by the way I was treated by the ADF on my last day of service. I have cleared my name on the &quot s=(sic);Help a digger make a call&quot (sic);  

Face book page telling all what had happened to me and that is the end of it. The feed back I have received from FB is you are a pack of faceless trolls.  You take me on and I have more resources and time available to make it my mission in life to hold you accountable for my mental well being. I didn't ask to be drugged and raped on my second last day of service. I have suffered enough over 20 yrs of denial and shame.

So have some guts and provide the full name of this person who phoned me yesterday , your address and phone number so the authorities can find you in 5 mins as opposed to 30 min

I closing, go to hell”

Even a cursory read of Jenkyn’s letter will show that it was not written by his wife as he has botched up his personal pronouns.

For at least ten years Jenkyn has been “an heroic returned veteran” and when caught out, he diverted to plan “B”.

One may well think that Jenkyn invented the bizarre rape story to explain his ten years of lies and deception about being a Navy Clearance Diver, and a Special Air Service Trooper, who saw active service.

Jenkyn is currently pushing a compensation claim through DVA.  We believe the alleged rapist has been named, but it’s a pity that the accused person has passed on and cannot refute Jenkyn’s allegations.

Jenkyn has been lying about his service for ten years and when caught out, has produced a bizarre alternative story.

The evidence showing Jenkyn to be a lying, fraud and a wannabe for ten years is irrefutable.

As far as his rape story is concerned, we let you be the judge.

There is no need for a hasty decision, as it envisaged that Jenkyn will remain here for a long time.

Surname: Caesar
Christian Names: Graeme Rex
Country: Australia
State or Province: Queensland
City or Town: Elanora, Gold Coast
Service #: R58130
Service: RAN
Branch: Submarine
Commencement of service: 02 July 1961
Completion of service: 01 July 1970
Case Notes:

 

 

 

Graeme Rex Caesar enlisted in the RAN in 1961. He was 18 years of age when he signed on for 9 years. On his Linked in page he claimed 20 years RAN Submarine service. (1961 - 1981) Although since our recent contact with him, he has now changed these dates to (1961 - April, 1970) 9 years Submarine Service. These changed dates are significant as you read on.

Caesar is currently the Interim National President of the Submarines Association of Australia (SAA). This Association has branches in all states of Australia. Caesar was the President of the Queensland Branch prior to his being appointed Interim National President in early 2014. He claims to have been awarded a Doctorate in Philosophy (Phd), Organisational Management at Harvard University (USA), and a Bachelor of Science (BSc) in Applied Psychology at Oxford University.(UK)

He refers to himself as Doctor Graeme Caesar.

The National AGM for the SAA will be held in Fremantle, Western Australia from the 7 November, 2014 to the 14 November, 2014. It will be the commemoration of 100 years of Australian Submarine Service since 1914 when the first two Australian Submarines AE1 and AE2 served in the First World War. There will be a number of International submariners from various countries also attending in addition to Federal Politicians.

Caesar is expected to stand and be voted in as the substantive National President at that conference. It is a prestige position.

Unfortunately for Caesar though, he is an imposter and a military fraud.

In 18 months, Caesar's medal rack with additional clasps has more than doubled.

On the 5 January, 2010, the photograph below was posted on his Facebook page.

Caesar is wearing the following medals with his Coast Guard mess jacket.

1. The Australian Active Service medal 1945-1975. One clasp. (AASM)
2. The Australian Service Medal 1945-1975 with one clasp. (ASM)
3. The Australian Defence Medal. (ADM)
4. The Pingat Jasa Malaysia medal.

In a photograph posted on his Facebook on the 28 July, 2011, eighteen months later, Caesar is wearing significantly more medals as indicated below -;

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasps Malaysia and South Vietnam.
2. General Service Medal 1962 with clasps Borneo and South Vietnam.
3. Australian Vietnam Medal.
4. Australian Service Medal 1945-1975, with clasps - Special Ops, FESR (Far East Strategic Reserve) and PNG. (Papua New Guinea.)
5. National Medal.
6. Australian Defence Medal.
7. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (181 days or more operational service in South Vietnam or Vietnamese waters)
8. Pingat Jasa Medal. (90 days operational service in Borneo, Malaysia waters.)
9. Community Service Medal. (tin unofficial medal.)
10. 2001 Year of the Volunteer medal. (tin Commemorative medal.)

You might wonder how we can identify the clasps on all his medals in the above photograph. It was easy. Although not in correct order, he describes them on his Linked In page below.

Caesar came to our notice recently due to the rapid increase of medals and clasps to his rack over the past few years.

We obtained a copy of Caesar's Naval Record. Entries pertaining to his postings do not match his claimed medals entitlement.

As a consequence, we contacted Caesar in writing and requested information from him regarding his Naval service and the medal entitlements he claims. We requested any documentation that might support his assertions. A simple request just to address the anomalies regarding his service record and his claims. Caesar failed to respond.

However, a concerned Non Executive ordinary member of the Submarines Association Australia, sent us a copy of a communication written by Caesar that he received erroneously.

See below -;


For the personal information of the SAA National Executive, National Committee and National Officers

Gentlemen,

I have been contacted by a somewhat secretive unofficial group who call themselves the Australian and New Zealand Military Imposters wanting to know about periods of my service that do not appear in the publicly available records.

Like a lot of you, I saw service in Submarines and other Ships and Postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be, and I have no intention of replying to their enquiry nor entering into any correspondence of any sort with them.

Yours aye,
Graeme
Dr. Graeme Caesar
National President
Submarines Association Australia


Now you would think that if you received a simple request to provide details of your distinguished military career in campaigns that allegedly involved operational service in Malaysia, Borneo and Vietnam, you would be only too happy to respond like all genuine veterans do when we request information from them.

Caesars lack of interest in responding to our request convinced us that he may not be the veteran he claims to be. We then had a closer look at him.

As a result of our inquiries we have ascertained that Caesar is entitled to the following medals.

1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasp Borneo.
2. Possibly General Service Medal 1962 with clasp Borneo.
3. Australian Service Medal 1945-1975, clasp FESR.
4. National Medal. (9 years RAN service and remainder possible Coast Guard service.) (15 years minimum service required.)
5. Australian Defence Medal.

He has no entitlement to wear the following medals and clasps.

1. Australian Active Service medal clasps Malaysia and Vietnam.(1945-1975)
2. Australian Vietnam Medal.
3. General Service Medal clasp Vietnam.
4. Australian Service Medal clasps 1945-1975 (Special Ops and PNG.)
4. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (181 days or more in Vietnam waters.)
5. Pingat Jasa Medal Malaysia. (90 days or more in designated area.)
6. Community Service Medal, tin purchased medal.
7. 2001 International Year of the Volunteer Medal. tin commemorative medal.

In his E mail to his Executive members, he claims that he "saw service on ships and other postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be".

If that is the case, why didn't Caesar just contact the Australian War Memorial (AWM) and rectify "their blunder" for not including his name on the Vietnam War nominal roll.

The Vietnam War Nominal Roll has been in existence since 1997. He has had 17 years to correct it. One communication to the AWM could have solved the problem. Not hard.

If he wears the Vietnam medals openly, and has posted photographs of himself wearing them on his Linked In and Face Book pages for the world to see, why is it such a secret?

Why is his Vietnam active service not shown on his Naval records or the Vietnam Nominal Roll?

Why hasn't he corrected it?

Why does his name not appear on any ship's crew lists that deployed to Vietnam waters for six months or more?

Why does he state that he saw service on ships and other postings that is not on the public record and perhaps never will be? He is implying that his service was top secret.

He claims six months Naval service in Vietnamese waters. ( i.e. Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal) We don't know when. He may remember, but he won't tell us! Maybe he was on "Special Ops" again and all his secret records were destroyed like so many other imposters claim on this site.

Maybe he will tell his colleagues at the Fremantle conference in November, 2014 what ship he was on, the dates his ship served in Vietnamese waters, his duties, His Commanding Officer's name etc. We are sure that his SAA members will have a great deal of interesting questions to ask him.

As it has now been 45 years since the RAN completed six months deployments in Vietnamese waters (HMAS Brisbane 6/3/1971 to 15/10/1971 was the last HMA Ship deployed) , Caesar should have no difficulty explaining to the SAA members his secret service in clandestine operations. Surely it is not top secret anymore!!.

After all, he will be their President with the utmost integrity and he will no doubt be leading by example.

So much for his Vietnam service.

If we now look at his alleged operational service in Malaysia and Borneo as he claims on his Honours and Awards Linked In page, he asserts that he is entitled to the Australian Active Service Medal 1945-1975 with clasps Malaysia and Vietnam. He also claims the General Service Medal 1962 with clasps Borneo and South Vietnam.

Caesar enlisted in the Royal Australian Navy on the 2 July, 1961.

According to his records, Caesar served from 1961 to 1964, at Shore establishments and HMA ships. He states that in this time he trained as a Naval Clearance Diver. About the equivalent of an Army Special Air Service Regiment operative. His records do not confirm this and about the only similarity he had to this was completing an RAN "swimming test" in July 1961.

He had service with the HMAS Quiberon from 30 September, 1961 to the 5 August, 1962. During this time the HMAS Quiberon had no active service accreditation. In other words no operational service in that period.

His record indicates that he served on the HMAS Sydney when it was re-commissioned from the 6 August, 1962 until the 6 December, 1962. The HMAS Sydney had no active service accreditation in that period.

He was then posted to the HMAS Parramatta on the 31 December, 1962. He served on and off that ship until 9 July, 1964. During that time the HMAS Parramatta made one 31 day operational deployment to Borneo waters from the 26 May, 1964, until the 26 June, 1964.

His record discloses that for the remainder of 1964 he served at Shore Establishments and on the 14 December, 1964 he flew to the UK for Submarine training.

He states on his National SAA curriculum vitae (c.v.) that he was posted to the United Kingdom in 1964 for Submarine training at HMS Dolphin. He then served with HMS Talent and HMS Grampus. In 1968 he moved to Scotland where he was to standby for the completion of HMAS Ovens, an Australian submarine being built. He states that Ovens was commissioned and he served on her in 1969 as second coxswain.

He now states on his changed Linked in Page, that he left the Royal Australian Navy in April, 1970 and not 1981. He must have had a memory lapse. He was actually discharged on the 1 July, 1970.

Therefore his only operational service was 31 days on the HMAS Parramatta in waters off Borneo. Those facts indicate that he is also not entitled to the Pingat Jasa Malaysian medal which requires 90 days service in the designated operational area.

In addition to this, to be eligible for the Malaysia clasp, Caesar would have to have been deployed in the qualifying area between the 17 August, 1964 and the 14 September, 1966. However, in August 1964 he was posted to Shore establishments in Australia prior to his posting to the UK in December, 1964 for submarine training. He has no entitlement to this clasp.

His claim to a clasp for Vietnam service on his General Service Medal is interesting. The Wikipedia attachment below clearly indicates that Caesar is not entitled to this award.

South Vietnam

This clasp was instituted by Royal approval on the 16 December 1965 for "members of our Australian Armed Forces who qualify by participation in operations in defence of the Republic of Vietnam as from 24 December 1962, and to a date to be determined,..." Between 1963 and 1965, at least 68 members of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) and 232 members of the RAAF Transport Flight Vietnam qualified for the clasp. However, a decision of 1966 relating to the institution and award of the Vietnam Medal led to the stripping of the award from the RAAF personnel. A Royal Warrant dated 8 June 1968 [2]retrospectively changed the qualifying periods to:
Between 24 December 1962 and 29 May 1964,

• 30 days' service in ships operating in inland waters or off the Vietnamese coast.
• 1 day in the service of a land unit.
• 1 operational sortie.
• 30 days' service on an official visit.

For service after 29 May 1964, personnel were awarded the Vietnam Medal. Thus, only 68 clasps were issued, and all 68 went to AATTV (Australian Army Training Team Vietnam)members.

The last paragraph is interesting. Caesar has no entitlement to this clasp whatsoever. He was never a member of AATTV and he has no Vietnam service.

He also has no entitlement to the "Special Ops" clasp that he wears on the Australian Service Medal 1945-1975. This clasp was awarded to Naval personnel who had qualifying service in Oxley Class Submarines from between 1978 to 1992. Caesar left the Navy on 1 July, 1970.

His Naval records also do not indicate that he is entitled to wear the PNG (Papua New Guinea) clasp on the ASM 1945-1975.

Below are his two tin medals that should not be worn on the left side and mixed or added to military medals. These are just unauthorised medals that can be purchased from the Internet for about thirty dollars each.


 

The Community Services Medal.

The 2001 International Year of the Volunteer Medal.

Caesar is just one of many high profile wannabees who have worked and bluffed their way up through the system to gain executive positions on Ex Service Organisation (ESO) committees and gain undeserved benefits and recognition.

Recently we exposed former ESO Executive and RAN Leading Sick Berth Attendant Trevor (Doc) Anthony for similar false representations of his operational military service, in addition to four former Presidents of Victoria RSL Clubs who have since resigned or been ejected.

We are also currently investigating other ESO executives who have gained positions through lies and deceit and who will be appearing on this site soon. One even claims that he is a victim of the "tall poppy syndrome". Most imposters undoubtedly think that with the passage of time, they will not be discovered.

Caesar is an imposter without credibility. He should resign, as should all other "tall poppy imposters" currently holding positions in ESO organisations before they appear on this site.

We requested information from him recently regarding proof of his entitlements to medals that he wears and displays on his Linked in and Facebook pages. He failed to respond but two days later, he removed all the offending photographs of himself wearing the non entitled medals from his Facebook page and his Linked in Page as well as his list identifying them all.

As mentioned above, he has also now changed completely his dates of service in the Royal Australian Navy by reducing his enlistment period by eleven years to a discharge date in April, 1970 rather than his previously stated date of 1981.

Unfortunately for Caesar though, the photographs of himself, that he is now trying to extinguish, will remain on this site for evermore as a reminder for him. Also for the world to see what a fraud and charlatan he really is.

He has no respect for all the genuine Vietnam veterans by trying to steal their honour. He should publicly apologise to all Vietnam Veterans. He has also shown complete disrespect to his Submarine Association of Australia colleagues by claiming military awards that he has no entitlement to.

Caesar has committed an offence against the Australian Defence Act 1903 as amended.

Section 80B IMPROPER USE OF SERVICE DECORATIONS.

1. A person is guilty of an offence if-;

(a) the person wears a service decoration and;
(b) the person is not the person on whom the decoration was conferred.

Penalty.

30 Penalty Units or imprisonment for 6 months or both.


In addition to his fraudulent display of medal entitlements that he has not been awarded, we made some inquiries at Harvard University regarding his claimed Doctor of Philosophy (Phd) qualification. We were not surprised when we received confirmation from the Registrar of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University that they have no Graeme Caesar on their records for this award. They have never heard of him.

We then contacted the Harvard Extension School (On line Courses), but they also confirmed that they do not award Phd's and they also have no record of him. Therefore his claim of Doctor status from Harvard University is also false.

At the time of writing, we are awaiting a response from Oxford University UK in respect to his claimed Bachelor of Science (BSc) Applied Psychology award.
Should be interesting!

The Submarines Association of Australia should take stern action against this imposter and eject him from their organisation altogether before he causes further damage and embarrassment to their good name.

They should also report him to the relevant authorities for his fraudulent behaviour of wearing service decorations and other claims of false educational qualifications, including Doctor status, that he has no entitlement to.

Welcome to the website Graeme Rex Caesar.

 

Graeme Rex Caesar Update – 23 Apr 15

Graeme Rex Caesar, or Doctor Graeme Rex Caesar, as he likes to be known is at it again.

He is not only a Military Medals cheat but also a false pretender and an outright fraud.

Even following our 2014 exposure of Caesar claiming false PhD (Doctor) status, he still claims to have been awarded a Doctor of Philosophy (Organisation and Management) at Harvard University, USA.

We have been advised in writing by Ms Caroline Harvey, Enrollment Services Co-Coordinator, Office of the Registrar, Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Harvard University, that Graeme Rex Caesar has never been recorded as a Student at Harvard.

He has also never been awarded a PhD from Harvard Extension Faculty (Distance learning) as that Faculty does not offer PhD's. to students.

We have also made inquiries at Oxford University, United Kingdom, where Caesar claims he was awarded a Bachelor of Science (Applied Psychology).

Mr. Max Todd, Assistant Registrar (Compliance) Council Secretariat, University Offices, Wellington Square, informed us in writing that Caesar was never a Student at that University either.

Caesar still claims on his linked in page, graemecaesar.com/styled-3/index.html on his Education profile that he has these awards.

We are still awaiting results from La Trobe University in respect to his Bachelor of Business claims.

Below is a resume of his claimed educational qualifications on his website.

GRAEME CAESAR
Education


I have been very lucky to have had the opportunity to study at three of the world's leading universities.

University of Oxford
Bachelor of Science (Applied Psychology)

La Trobe University
Bachelor of Business (Personnel and Industrial Relations)

Harvard University
Doctor of Philosophy (Organization and Management
)

Caesar claimed in the Gold Coast Bulletin on 2 March 2015 that he had the above qualifications when interviewed about a new business that he has commenced on the Gold Coast. The Journalist was told absolute lies in respect to Caesars claimed educational qualifications in an endeavor to obtain free publicity for his new company. The below mentioned article is an extract from that publication.

Caesar came to our notice in 2014 when he was the Interim National President of the Submarine Association Australia. (SAA) (See exposure above) He was intending to stand as the National President of the Association in November 2014 in Perth. He was expected to win. However he was caught out as a medals cheat, a fraud and an imposter beforehand and was duly exposed.

This Anzmi initial exposure caused him to resign from the SAA immediately. He caused serious embarrassment to the SAA at the time due to his high standing within the Association and our exposure of his fraudulent conduct.

It was a timely exposure, due to the fact that at the 2014 Annual General Meeting of the Submarines Association of Australia, the SAA was also commemorating 100 years Australian Submarine Service since Submarines AE1 and AE2 began service with the Royal Australian Navy.

This was in addition to the election of their new National President, which would have been Caesar. Numerous high ranking Royal Australian Navy, Defence Department officials as well as overseas dignitaries attended the 2014 AGM and celebrations.

We have been contacted by executives of the SAA who have expressed their sincere appreciation of the Anzmi exposure, before Caesar could have created any more damage to their organisation by being elected National President, and then being discovered as a Fraud during or after that election.

In the photograph below, Caesar is standing with some highly decorated and senior current and former Naval personnel at the Submariners Walk, Brisbane. We have blacked out their faces due to the embarrassment it would cause them. These other three gentlemen were responsible for initiating a plan for this commemorative Sub Mariners Walk and celebrating the satisfaction of having their ideas come to fruition. In the photograph however, and in the dominating position and displaying his false unawarded medals is Caesar. (Front right of photo)

In the photograph above, Caesar is wearing six unauthorised medals on his rack and a number of clasps that he has never been awarded. These medals and clasps are mentioned above in his initial exposure.

Caesar has threatened legal action against Anzmi. Whilst he continues to wear unawarded medals and falsely claim that he is a Doctor, we will keep featuring him on this site.

We advise any member of the public or business community who deals with Caesar to verify all qualifications that he claims, and be suspicious of anything he says.

We challenged him in 2014 to produce evidence of his false claims to military medals he was not entitled to. We received no response other than threats of legal action.

We again extend an invitation to Caesar to provide evidence of his Harvard University PhD, Oxford University Bachelor of Science and La Trobe University Bachelor of Business. We do not expect an answer, other than more legal threats.

Information displayed on this site is always supported by photographic and/or documentary evidence.

Caesar is fond of free publicity. We have notified the Gold Coast Bulletin about Caesar's fraudulent activities. Hopefully their own update will appear shortly, and he will be given some additional free publicity as well as ours.

Case Notes:

Graeme Caddy of Mandurah Western Australia

If you want to pretend to have served with, or been part of Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) Operations, Perth is not a good environment to conduct your wannabe activities.

The SASR is based in the sandy suburbs of Perth and many ex SASR members have made Perth their home. This lesson was learned by Graeme Caddy of Mandurah Western Australia. 

 

As illustrated in the photograph, initially Caddy was a bit camera shy and hid behind a styrene cup, but an feisty ex SASR member managed to get some other photos showing Caddy’s full countenance.

We hold Statutory Declarations regarding claims made by Caddy, as follows:

“Initially Caddy was heard “mouthing off” about his SASR experience in a Car Dealers premises. He claims to have served in the Royal Australian Airforce and spent thirteen years on Special Operations with the SASR.”

Then again from a different source:

“Before Christmas a friend, and Vietnam Veteran and I were in a motorcycle shop in Victoria Park here in WA, when a chap started up a conversation with my mate. During the conversation this Mr Caddy learned my mate was a Vietnam Vet, so he then stated in front of me that although he was officially in the RAAF, he actually spent 13 years "On Special Ops with the SAS"!!!  Now, my ears pricked up and I asked him exactly what did he do whilst on these special ops, and he replied he was a photographer. I immediately knew he was a fraud because firstly, I didn't know him and believe me, I am, or was well known around the traps in SAS.

Mr Caddy told me the SAS often took he and another chap out on operations. When I asked him where, he would not say.”

Below are some excerpts from the Statutory Declarations

 

 

 

After being photographed it must have dawned on Caddy that he had been describing his Special Operations service to the wrong people and here is a report of his squirming:

“At mid-day today I received a call on my mobile from this Graeme Caddy, suggesting I have "Misunderstood" him!!! Please believe me, he categorically stated he had been in the RAAF, but had spent thirteen years "On Special Operations with the SAS" as a....wait for it....a photographer. I have a witness who I am sure would corroborate my statement and I'm prepared to sign a sworn affidavit if need be.

The truth of the matter as I told Mr Caddy earlier, he has been big mouthing himself and he has been caught out and he is a fraud. I have also laid a complaint against him with the AFP today”

Whether Caddy ever served in the RAAF we don’t know, the point is we do know that he never served on any operations with the SASR.

If all the wannabes who claimed to have served with the SASR had actually served it would have been the largest unit ever formed in Australia.

Caddy’s claim of having participated in Special Operations puts him in the category of claiming to be a returned Veteran, when he is not.  Making that claim is sufficient for him to be charged under the Defence Act 1903 Section VII, Part 80A “Falsely claiming to be a returned airman”. This offence attracts a penalty of $3,300 fine, or six months imprisonment or both. Caddy has been reported to the Federal Police. Those involved should also be aware that State Police can prosecute under the Defence Act.

Caddy is a fraud a liar and a wannabe who will remain on our web site until the day he expires.
