photo depicts Robinson boldly wearing the much coveted
SASR Beret with SASR Badge and camouflage clothing. On
his right breast he exhibits an Infantry Combat Badge,
and Efficiency Badge and indistinguishable collar tags.
An ex SASR or Infantry soldier would never wear an
Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) on the wrong side. Robinson
has it on his right breast, whereas it is always worn on
the left breast above medals or ribbons.

Robinson claims nine years service, three years as an
Infantry Soldier, and six years with the elite SASR,
including "overseas service" with the SASR.
real Military History of Alick Frank Robinson is
somewhat different and much briefer than what he claims
it can be written in three brief sentences:
Private Alick Frank ROBINSON, born 27 Feb 61.
Enlisted Australian Regular Army, 16 Aug 82 and
discharged 25 Jan 83.
Australian Army Catering Corps (AACC), and is unlikely
that he actually got to a unit after Recruit Training
and AACC training.
summary he was in the Army for five months, during that
time he completed Recruit Training, and was then trained
as a Cook or a Steward in the Army Catering Corps, and
most likely, before even being posted to an operational
unit was discharged.
Nothing exciting – No SASR. Just a basic Cook or
Steward who was discharged before even commencing work.
Service Organisations in the Coolum, Queensland area
should keep an eye out for Alick Robinson and brief
their members to brook no nonsense from this wannabe ex
Cook/Steward drop out, who thought he served as an
Infantry soldier for three years and for six years with
the elite Special Air Service Regiment.
wearing of the coveted SASR Beret and Infantry Combat
Badge and his claims to be a war veteran who served
“overseas” is an affront to all who have served.
with pleasure that we expose to the world, Alick Frank
Robinson, born on 27th February 1961 in
Cairns, Queensland and now residing in Coolum,
