At ANZMI, we do not take into consideration excuses, or make value judgements. There are no grey areas, only black and white.  Should  any person flout laws and protocols regarding military service or the wearing of medals we will report them without fear or favour.  It is the readers responsibility to consider the extent of the offending.

 

Victor Dale did the hard yards as an Infantry Soldier in Vietnam with 1st Australian Reinforcement Unit (1ARU) from  7th June 1967 until 17 Jul 1967 and then with 7th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (7RAR) from  18 July 1967 until 6 November 1971.  A total of 153 days.

 

Dale

 

To be eligible to wear the RCVM he needed to complete 181 days in Vietnam or be evacuated home as a Battle Casualty.  He did not complete the 181 days criterion and he was not a Battle Casualty.  He was medically evacuated after he developed tropical ulcers and cysts. He departed Vietnam on 6 November 1967 and after spending 7 days in a Military Hospital in Butterworth Malaysia, he was moved  on to  Sydney Australia.

 

Victor Dale is a respected Bush Poet and although we condemn him for wearing a false medal we are happy to advertise his work here:    http://www.victorchurchilldale.com.au/

 

All serviceman who served in Vietnam know the rules regarding the RVCM however there are many offenders listed on this website.  Our work does not weary them.

 

Be aware that if you falsely wear the RVCM or any other false medal it is likely that you will be noticed and then exposed on this website as a medals cheat.

 

Surname: Dann
Christian Names: Guy Luther
Country: Australia
State or Province: Tasmania
City or Town: Hobart
Service: Army
Branch: Cavalry Regiment
Case Notes:
Guy Luther Dann – Of Hobart Town – Liar, fraud and wannabe.

Dann has an image around Hobart of being a “Man about Town” who did some hard time on military deployments to far away places with strange sounding names. He also bleated to a TV News Channel about how tough it was in the Army, because others were mean towards him. That should not have concerned a battle hardened, often deployed Cavalry Trooper like Guy Luther  Dann, the problem is, that in reality, he is a fraud, liar and wannabe. 

 

Dann-1

 

In the photo he is wearing:

1         Australian Active Service Medal 1975

2         Afghanistan Medal

3         Iraq Medal

4         NATO Medal with Clasp ISAF

 

According to people who served with Dann he spent from July 2007 until August 2010 in the Army.  After basic training he served with the 2nd Cavalry Regiment. Despite the rack of four medals he wears, former members from his unit advise that he earned no medals at all. In addition, during his interview with the TV News Channel he said "He was expecting to be, one day, deployed overseas to fight for his country", that expectation was never realised.  

 

During his mundane service he was an administrative burden who never fitted in, and spent time as a detainee at the Australian Defence Correctional Establishment in Holsworthy, New South Wales.

 

Soon after departing the Army he was known to get around Hobart wearing his old uniforms to town and to parties, and in the manner of most wannabes, he has told the big lie that:

 

“He knows confidential things and the Army has paid him out for his silence”

 

In fact Dann was an ill disciplined Trooper (the equivalent of a Private Soldier).  His work was ineffectual, and he could not work without close supervision. Can you imagine a person with those credentials “Knowing confidential things” and to suggest that the Army would pay a person to “Keep quiet” is laughable?

 

On ANZAC Day 2013 Dann may have cut a dashing figure wearing a suit, and four campaign medals and telling the lies necessary support his behaviour, but don’t be fooled.  Guy Luther Dann is an ex Serviceman, he is not a returned Veteran.

 

He is a liar, fraud and a wannabe who has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 Part VII Sections 80A and 80B

 

80A  Falsely representing to be a returned soldier

80B  Improper use of service decorations

 

Both of these offences have a maximum penalty of a $3,300 fine or six months imprisonment or both.

Tasmanian State Police have been advised of Dann’s offences and we hope, like many other wannabes have been; he will be arraigned, before a Magistrate and penalized. If that doesn’t happen, at least he will remain exposed on this web site as liar, fraud and wannabe.

Surname: DAVIS
Christian Names: James Robert Stephen
Country: Australia
State or Province: New South Wales
City or Town: Armidale
Service #: 8217192
Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Commencement of service: 1988
Case Notes:

 

James Davis is a colourful ex serviceman, who boasts of operating a sex cult, (actually it is a Brothel) in the New South Wales country town of Armidale. . He served as an Infantry Private and Lance Corporal in the Australian Regular Army and the Army Reserve. He has exaggerated his Army service on social media.

Davis 1


James served in the war in Iraq, during operation Catalyst, and for that service he has the status of a returned veteran, with the appropriate medals. However, he has added some fallacious (no pun intended) war jaunts of Bosnia, Timor and Afghanistan, to falsely enhance his service history.

He has provided "proof" of his Bosnia service on social media. He asserts to have served in the war in Bosnia aged nineteen years. He posted under the name of: 

Davis 2Davis 3


He claims "The balkans will always be my other home. It gave me my firs war, my first wife, and twin daughters."

Very few Australian Defence personnel were involved, in the Bosnia war. James Davis was not there, as a nineteen year old Private soldier, (as he claims). The Bosnia war occurred in 1992 to 1995, and having been born in 1981 Davis would have been twelve to fourteen years old during the war.

Whilst his Brothel career is spellbinding, his military career could not be described as "stella". During his Army service between 1998 and 2010 , his only overseas deployment was to Iraq. In addition he was subjected to a court martial, whilst serving with Delta Company 4/3 Royal New South Wales Regiment, holding the rank of LCPL. He was found guilty of assault, and then lost an appeal.

We welcome James Davis aka as "Big dick Jimmy" aboard.

Another wannabe who is an executive member of an ex-services organisation. (ESO)

Day is the President of Toowoomba (QLD) RSL, it's Sub-Branch, and a life member of the VVAA NSWBranch Inc.

This individual who demands to be addressed as "Doctor Day", is also a Frontiersman, just like Ponting, Weatherall and Ryan who appear on our site.

Brian Day did serve with the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) from April 1971 to April 1972, his second tour.

Before it was removed due to being challenged by Veterans, Day's CV was posted on a Blue Mountains Vietnam Veteran's website and it clearly stated,

"1967 - Posted to HQ Australian Forces Vietnam - Australian Army Training Team, US Special Forces"

For all you Veterans who have ever heard Brian Day's war stories and wondered whyhis service history does not appear on the Vietnam Veteran's Nominal Rollas shown below.

 

Here's why, on his first tour he claims was with AATTV and US Special Forces, he was actually a Corporal Batman, ECN 175, for 8 months with HQ AFV (Saigon) and then an instructor at 1ARU, a Rifleman, ECN 757.     

He had been a Batman in Australia for quite some time as well. 

These details have been cut from his Army records.

 

"Unit.  now HQ AFV (Army Component) as Batman ECN 175  28 Jan 1967"

"Unit.   now 1 Aust Rft Unit  (Rft Str)=(Reinforcement Strength) 2 Oct 67"

A Batman? An Orderly, a Soldier who attended to mundane daily tasks for Officers.

1ARU? 1 Australian Reinforcement Unit, Nui Dat. He was a Corporal and Section Commander with this unit that trained newly arrived Infantry reinforcements. 

What we would like from you readers is your input into the Brian Day story. Have you heard his tall tales of war service and would like them confirmed or denied? Would you like to comment on any of his wild tales? Do you have any doubts about the badges and awards he wears?   The photo below depicts Day on the left sitting beside Barry Wright showing off Day's awards.  Both appear on our site pages. Both are worth reading.


This photo is from John Pilger's book, "A Secret Country"

Please contact us at  information@anzmi.net  with your comments and questions and we'll display them on the linked page. These should only relate to Day's Vietnam service, real or imagined.

Your name and contact details will not be displayed, we do however request that you supply your branch of service and also Corps if ex-Army.

Comments will be posted fairly quickly and questions answered after only a brief delay. 

You are able to view comments, questions and answers here

Day's CV as presented on the internet is held to be a faithful reproduction of information supplied by him. All answers to questions posed are supported by Military documents and statements from private citizens.

At last, Brian Day admits that his first tour in Vietnam was not with the AATTV and attached to US Special Forces as he had told people over the past almost 40 years.
A snip from his bio as presented by the Blue Mountains Veterans Group.

1967 - Posted to HQ Australian Forces Vietnam - Australian Army Training Team Vietnam, US Special Forces.

A snip from the Toowoomba Chronicle article shown below.

"I've always been open about what I did that year," he said. "In 1967 I was posted to HQ AFV Saigon – I spent about eight months in administration and four months training reinforcements.

Now that the cat's out of the bag, Mr. Day confirms the information we originally presented as fact.

 
Toowoomba Chronicle Front Page - Dr Brian DAY, 11 May 2006. 
Read his news article response to our charges of him being one of the most outrageous wannabes who ever drew breath. ANZMI has received no communications from Day's legal advisors.

 
Note the opening statement and the capitalisation of the first two words.
"HE HAS faced the enemy over the front lines in Vietnam, but Brian Day is now fighting a bloody battle to save his reputation"
Where and when did you ever face the enemy Brian Day?

13th May 2010

Update - Dr Sir Brian Day

In case you were wondering as to the whereabouts of the bloke with the pseudo Doctorate and Knighthood.

“Dr” “Sir” Brian was snapped at a service in Bendigo Victoria on ANZAC Day 2010. Following our original exposure, Day moved from Toowoomba Queensland to Bendigo Victoria.  His attempts to snaffle position in the Bendigo RSL were thwarted perhaps by our exposure. It is a simple truth that Australian Veterans who exaggerate their service and also pose as “Doctors” and “Knights” are not welcome in the Veteran community; especially after receiving a Doctorate from a bogus university, and a Knighthood from a mob like the Frontiersmen who like to dress up and play act at being personages of importance.

Here is Brian Day on ANZAC Day 2010 at Bendigo Victoria.

Surname: Deacon
Christian Names: Graham Neville
Country: Australia
State or Province: Tasmania
City or Town: Penguin
Service #: R64441
Service: Royal Australian Navy
Branch: Sick Berth Attendant
Commencement of service: 1965
Completion of service: Unknown
Case Notes:

 

 

Graham Neville Deacon joined the Royal Australian Navy in 1965 as a Sick Berth Attendant, or a Navy Medical Sailor, in modern terminology. Deacon had a number of sea postings on HMAS Melbourne and HMAS Sydney.

For his service, Deacon was awarded the following official medals:

  1. Australian Active Service Medal 1945-75.
  2. Vietnam Logistic Support Medal
  3. Australian Service Medal 1945-75
  4. Australian Defence Medal

After leaving the Navy, Deacon returned to his hometown of Penguin, Tasmania, where he continued to serve his community through membership of various organisations. Deacon is also the President of the Penguin RSL Sub Branch.

Deacon 1

 

The above photograph was taken in 2012, the same year Deacon was elected as a Tasmania RSL State Executive Member. Here he can be seen wearing six medals, the last two being:

  • Australian Logistic Support Forces Commemorative
  • Far East Strategic Reserve Commemorative.

Both medals are, in reality, nothing more than tin junk, trinkets purchased from an ex-service organisation, but they certainly seem, to the unknowing, to add a little more importance to a medal rack.

Deacon was appropriately recognised for his service by the award of official medals for his service, why add on a couple more!

One would assume that RSL Sub Branches, and indeed, State RSL Headquarters across Australia, would have a well published protocol regarding the correct wearing of medals, particularly, in regard to State awards and commemorative medals. A search of respective State RSL websites provides almost no guidance.

Given the number of RSL executives that adorn the ANZMI pages, it is clear, that medal protocol is of not much importance, nor the respect that should be accorded to official honours and awards.

Deacon has been photographed several times since 2012, at ceremonies where he has represented his position as a member of the Tasmania RSL State Executive, or in his position as the President of the Penguin RSL Sub Branch.

Deacon 2

The above photograph was taken in 2016. The presentation of the Ted Howe OAM ANZAC Trophy, to the best Penguin footballer, was taking place. Mr Howe, a decorated WWII veteran, and 98 years of age, presented the trophy on that day.

That Deacon would be parading with his ‘tin’ medals on that day simply shows the disrespect he has for, not only Mr Howe, but towards all veterans.

Deacon currently holds the RSL State Executive position of, Vice President North West Division. In holding both his State and Sub Branch positions, deacon is subject to Tasmania RSL By-Laws.

By-Law 20: Code of Conduct – Elected Representatives

Of note:

  1. An elected representative of the State Branch or a Sub Branch must act honestly, in good faith and in the best interests of the League as a whole;                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           and:
  1. An elected representative should not engage in conduct likely to bring discredit upon the League.

Tasmania RSL State Executive needs to take action over this continuing disregard for our official medals system. Deacon should seriously evaluate his integrity to hold such positions.

Each time an elected representative of the RSL appears on these pages, it adds a little more tarnish to the good works of the League, along with a little more doubt as to the relevance of the organisation. Younger veterans can only wonder why RSL Executives are conducting themselves like some ‘Dad’s Army’, when it comes to the wearing of medals.

Graham Neville Deacon, RSL Executive member and medal cheat. Time and time again, different name but same circumstances, and respective RSL State Headquarters sitting on their hands and doing nothing, except perhaps polishing their pretty pieces of tin!

Surname: Keinzley
Christian Names: Jack
Country: New Zealand
State or Province: North Island
City or Town: Masterton
NZ -Which Island:
  • North Island
Case Notes:

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.
