CPMH has had Limebeer complaints arriving for several
years from a variety of areas. It appears that he
enjoys the tales he tells and the infamy he receives.
The Wannabee Syndrome has many indications however
Limebeer has been telling his tales for so long he now
firmly believes them himself.
His complete military record is only but a few pages.
However to enhance his paltry Military service
achievements he has resorted to the Wannabee Syndrome
in that he has invented some great Rambo type stories
and has related these to all and sundry, who would
believe them. His posting information is shown

Albion St, Surry Hills NSW with the Salvation Army and

Reservist with the SAS.
He was decorated by the US for his part in saving a
Submarine in Malaysia/Borneo.
He was a Pilot flying for Qantas.
He was a covert operator for ASIO operating in and out
of South East Asia.
This is an amazing array of claims to fame by just one
single Army Private with not quite six years service
and in particular no operational or overseas service.

Limebeer has resorted to blatant lies and
misrepresentation by preying upon the Honour of those
who did serve their country. He is a parasite
who has conned his friends and associates. He
has cheated them of the truth. He has endeavoured to
enhance the lies that he has told so often that he now
believes them himself having told them so often.
We will never know exactly how many doors have been
opened to this parasitic liar but from the many
informants reports it is substantial. It seems that
this lying con artist who has been addicted to hard
drugs and alcohol, has left the Surry Hills Hostel and
is now living elsewhere.
No doubt he will again surface and most likely we will
hear about him from someone who has been conned or
lied to by Limebeer. We will bring new updates about
him as they come to hand.
