we investigated Alfred Blanc’s military history,
contrary to Blanc’s claims we drew a blank. This Swiss
fondue exponent claims he served with the Australian
Defence Force in Vietnam. But that’s not all, he was of
course something special, as he served in the
“Australian Intelligence Unit” in Vietnam.
Finch Hatton Returned Services League (RSL) members have
been suspicious of Fred Blanc for quite a while. Finch
Hatton RSL members have seen Fred wearing medals and
have heard Fred tell stories of his “service” in
Vietnam. The following anecdotes about Fred have been
passed to us from Finch Hatton.
“Fred claimed he was in Australia less than a year when
he was “called up for service” and that the Military
Police picked him up because he didn't front up. When he
was enlisted he was allocated to Intelligence Corps as
an interpreter because he could speak French.
Fred must have studied hard for his wannabe role because
his knowledge of weapons in Vietnam is spot on and he
fitted in well with some of the RSL members, He claims
to have been at Fire Support Base Coral on the 13 May
1968 in the Bien Hoa Province of Vietnam.
claims he was in a “hot helicopter extraction” and he
had to wait for a second chopper when there was not room
to take them all.
even got a bloke to come to the RSL Anzac Breakfast and
told the RSL members his guest was a Veteran like him, the
poor fellow was a tradesman and had never been near the
armed forces in his life. Later when we talked to this
bloke he admitted the deception and said he was so
embarrassed when someone asked him what it was like
“over there” that he had to say that it was something
that he didn't want to talk about."
Blanc came under suspicion at the RSL he always finds a
reason for not participating in commemorative occasions
and of course it upsets him to talk about his war
experience. Blanc claims to speak four languages. Blanc
also speaks a fifth language and that is the language of
liars and wannabes.
have confirmed that Blanc does not have a Defence
Service File at Central Army Records Office (CARO) See
Thank you for your query about the service records
relating to the following servicemen:
Post-WWII Army records are held by the Central Army
Records Office (CARO). They have advised us that
they were unable to locate a Post 1947 Army Service
record for this individual. We provided them with
the following information:
BLANC Date & place of birth:
Access & Communications
Blanc does not appear on the official, Department of
Veterans Affairs Nominal Roll, which he explains away as
being, because he was in an Intelligence unit. Sorry
Blanc you are a liar. All Army Intelligence personnel
are listed on the Nominal Roll along with all of those
who served in other sensitive units including the
Special Air Service Squadrons.
Blanc has two medals to exhibit he claims one is for
Vietnam and the other for Intelligence. Obviously it is
not for his own intelligence as he appears totally
devoid of that basic asset.
most likely had an interesting life, but for reasons
known only to wannabes, he decided to improve his image
by adding a little clandestine war service to the mix.
In doing so he is hereby exposed on our web site where
he will remain for the rest of his life.
is no need for any further suspicion from the Finch
Hatton RSL because Blanc is well and truly “outed” as a
liar and a wannabe.
and wannabes are very welcome on our site, most of them
are so dopey they almost march up to us and say “make me
