UPDATE: OSCAR - NOW OSCAR PARKER - JUNE 20

"Oscar" is still working his "magic" on the dating website "Bumble". He is romancing ladies and has disclosed his name as "Parker". Because of the blatant lies he has told on "Bumble" it is doubted that "Parker" is his real name.


For the purpose of shutting down this creep. If any other people have experienced "Oscar's" charms, please let us know what name he used, and what he has said about himself.

***

Oscar would not get an Oscar, for his portrayal of an Australian Army Officer.

Oscar advertises his charms to lure vulnerable ladies and maybe gentlemen to his lair on a dating website, known as "Bumble" . Here is a graphic display of his persona wearing the "uniform" of an Australian Army Colonel.


Notice that Oscar's uniform is out of synchronicity. He has failed to wear his lanyard, wears two different collar badges, and is bereft of two Colonel's collar Gorgets. Oscar wears the fake uniform to prove his claims, that he is an Army Jet Pilot, who has flown off Air Craft Carriers. The photograph in fact proves that he is not an Australian Army Colonel.

Oscar needs to be more diligent with his subterfuge, as any Army recruit can pick the anomalies. The simple ones are:

There are no Jet aircraft in the Australian Army and never has been.
If there were, no person of the rank of Colonel would be a "Jet Jockey"
Claims to have been at Royal Military College, Duntroon in 1983. He was not there.
Wears "Tom Cruise" sunglasses as explained below:


Oscar is also a Search and Rescue Chopper pilot when he is not zipping on and off aircraft carrier decks:


Whilst Oscar's machinations are hilariously funny to any reasonable person, there is the down side to this behaviour. Oscar brings the Defence and ex Defence fraternities, into disrepute with the audacious lies told on Bumble. His behaviour is dishonest, and brings disrespect to vulnerable people, who innocently respond to his ridiculous impersonation of an Australian Army Officer.

We have published this, without knowing Oscar's surname, however, we are confident that he will be identified, and he can be humiliated in the same manner he intended to humiliate vulnerable respondents to the Bumble website.

Oscar is grounded with ignominy.

UPDATE "ADMIRAL" Peter Cowell - JUNE 2020


This bloody idiot is still at it, with his mythical organization named International Search and Rescue (IntSAR) which in reality, can be associated with the children's puppet show "THUNDERBIRDS".


IntSAR is an impossible to achieve organization, dreamed up by a delusional, ex delivery driver, who on occasion wears a uniform, very similar to an Australian Navy Admiral. He not only dresses for the part, but he also lives the part. He doesn't often wear his uniform, but he makes sure, his Admiral's hat can be seen in the rear window of his car,


The hat, the ribands and badges he wears, are all false. He is the very model of a fake and shoddy Navy Admiral.

Since our first exposure of Cowell in 2014, a steady trickle of reports have been received detailing his actions and antics. With financial help of a charitable organization, he was residing in a caravan park in Canberra, Australian Capital Territory (ACT), then moved to Bathurst New South Wales, and now resides at The Rocks, 200 km west of Sydney, NSW.

Notice that on his IntSar LinkedIn website, www.intsar.org/leadership/officer-comand...s/bio-official-photo , Cowell describes himself as "Admiral", however whilst living in the bush in NSW 200 Km from the coast he is not living the lifestyle of an "international Coordinator by appointment, to the IntSAR Commission", and a "Diplomatic and proud member of the Australian Institute of Professional Intelligence Officers".


Appointments are available for recruits interested in joining his "crew". He describes IntSar On the latest IntSar Facebook page.


On his IntSar Facebook page he also promotes the following "Related Categories":

• Abortion service
• Addiction service
• Alternative and holistic health service
• Disability service
• Emergency rescue service
• Healthcare Administrator
• Home healthcare service
• Mental health service
• Nursing agency
• Orthotics and prosthetics service
• Reproductive service

In addition he claims alliance with dozens of organization throughout the world, including: Rescue of stray cats in the UK and affiliation with the Fire Department of Harlem New York

 



Although Cowell dresses like an Admiral, and admirably promotes his organization, he is not an Admiral's boot lace. IntSar, his organization, has no credence. He is a person with delusions of grandeur and the ability to lie without constraint.

Cowell would have the world believe he is an Admiral and a member of the International intelligence community. Here is an extract from his web site:

"Today, as an IntSAR Admiral with experience in Intelligence. I have 25 years in total within the services. In accordance with the official secrets act the remainder of my service is confidential due to its nature"

The buffoon does not even know, that there is no such thing as the Australian Official Secrets Act.

If you see Cowell anywhere on the horizon, steer well clear, as he is not an Admiral, he is a lying fake, who is as dishonest as any Pirate who ever sailed the seven seas, or tread the bush at The Rocks in NSW.

 *****

UPDATE COWELL April, 2018.

Canberra beware! A new crook is in town. The less than "Admiral Peter Cowell", is still trying to convince people that he is a "mover and shaker" in the world wide intelligence network. Unfortunately it is not possible for him to succeed, for apart from the fantasies pervading his cranium, he possesses no intelligence whatsoever.

Here is the latest copy of his resume.

Originally enlisted in the Australian Army for 6 years where I served in Armored (sic) recon (Cavalry), undertaking many specialist courses including basic Intel which set to (sic) scene for my career post-Army I transferred to the Corps of Engineers. After some time I moved on to Law Enforcement within the area of Corrections and Internal Investigations. Due to my earlier service with the army. After a time I became involved with a Maritime aid agency (N.G.O.) where I became aware of new Technology of potential military threat and use against Terrorists. I brought that to the attention of senior military authorities (said technology now having been developed by the United States and in use today). This together with my Degree in Security, Terrorism & Counter-terrorism with a second major in Law Studies saw me move into the Intelligence Community. Today, as a retired IntSAR Admiral with experience in Intelligence which carries with it some potential for diplomatic fallout. I have 25 years in total in the services. In accordance with the official secrets act the remainder of my service is confidential due to its nature. Today I provide limited consultancy on Geopolitical Strategic Military matters. My most recent client was the Office of the United States Secretary of Defense (sic).

In the above resume, he claims to have earned academic degrees in Security, Intelligence and Counter-terrorism with a second major in Law Studies. On his LinkedIn page, he also claims to have earned from the Murdoch University in Perth degrees in -;

Security, Terrorism and Counter-terrorism. Further studies toward a Masters in Asymmetric Warfare, International Relations and National Security Studies

A search of Graduate Students from Murdoch University did not list a person named Peter William Glen COWELL as ever graduating with any qualifications. The Murdoch University advise that if a person is not on the publicly accessible Graduates list, he has no Murdoch University qualifications.

Response By Email (Student Liaison Officer)
Hi XX

Thank you for contacting Murdoch University.

If a student is not listed in the graduate register which is located on the Murdoch website, then they have not completed a degree at Murdoch University.

We hope this information helps!

Should you have any further queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

His false claims that his twenty five years of service gives him experience, have connotations of the Officials Secrets Act and vast experience as an investigator. His twenty five years are all "Urine and Wind", as he served very little time as a Private Soldier in the Army Reserve and his Law Enforcement time was of short duration and spent as a Corrective Service Officer at the bottom of the promotions ladder. He never spent any time in the Navy and promoted himself to Admiral in an organization that was no more than a sham and a scam.

Here are photographs of Cowell as a Soldier and Corrections Officer:

On his Facebook page, Cowell recently claimed to be soon the Patron of a Veterans organization. He had his foot in the door, until the organization realised that he and his resume were nothing but lies and false pretences. They quickly sent him ashore, cancelled their "Ahoy shipmate" and bade him farewell.

Cowell is well represented in many places on the internet. Wherever he appears, he includes this photograph of his scruffy self as an "Admiral":


Peter Cowell



Ex Service organizations, the Defence Department and Citizens of Canberra beware of this Gilbert and Sullivan Admiral, who, by the way, has never served in the Queens Navy or sailed the deep blue or any other colour sea.

Introducing Rear Admiral Peter Cowell, Retired (Rtd) of International Sea Air Rescue and Humanitarian Aid Service (IntSAR).

Note: This organisation should not be confused with "Thunderbirds are Go", the search and rescue organisation featuring Scott, Tracy, Virgil, Geoff , Lady Penelope and Parker the Chauffeur.

Although difficult to see, "Admiral" Cowell, has advised that the medals he wears are:

Note: Cowell is wearing only one legitimate medal the Australian Defence Medals (ADM). The others are all unmentionable junk. He claims entitlement to the ADM because he was discharged from the Army Reserve with Kidney Stones. Here is what he said about his military service:

Cowell's Defence File contains only two documents:

One is an Application to enlist in the Regular Army in 1979 but he did not show for processing. The other is an Enlistment Advice to join the Army Reserve in 1980 as a Private Soldier which was processed.

There are no other documents to show any activity after the enlistment.

What is this mysterious IntSAR of which Peter Cowell is an Admiral Rtd? Here in his own words is the answer:


Cowell had serious communications with Senior Politicians and also with Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO). Here is a letter head from a Western Australia Senator who apparently believed that Cowell was an Admiral. We have other letterheads from prominent politicians of the day.

Here is a letter that he claims to have written to ASIO.

 


Of particular note is this paragraph.

Cowell appears to have been afraid of foul play and in a slick move, threatens to tell all to the Embassy of the Peoples Republic of China. Below is the envelope ready for the "Drop Box" at the Chinese Embassy.

ENOUGH of the Bulldust - Threatening to pass "Secrets" to the Chinese Embassy, wearing a uniform of an Admiral with medal ribbons is evidence of his delusional state.

"Admiral" Peter Cowell is a fanciful Admiral from a fanciful organisation of no substance.

He now runs a small Courier business in Perth and should stick to that. Although his work garb is somewhat different from his IntSAR Admiral's uniform, they can both be described and "scruffy".

We suggest Cowell stop wearing a uniform that would be inestimably beyond his capacity to achieve. He exacerbates the consequences of his actions by wearing "Tin" medals and a genuine medal that was also beyond his capacity to achieve.

Because of his stupidity he has achieved the notoriety of being presented to the world as an idiot on this web site.

We welcome Peter Cowell, who is a Courier driver and not Carrier driver as he would have us believe.

BROOKS UPDATE - JUNE 2020

In 2017 Benjamin Mathew Brooks was mentioned in ANZMI despatches for wearing four medals and an Army Combat Badge (ACB). Two of the medals and the ACB were fake.

He now wears six medals and three badges. Two of the medals, and one clasp are fake, one badge is not to be worn, except on Army uniform, and one of the badges is fake. Here are two photographs of Brooks, one from 2017, the other from 2020, showing his latest medals and badges display.


His current rack consists of:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM). Not entitled
Iraq Medal. Not entitled
Australian Service Medal (ASM) with two clasps. Entitled to the medal, but to only one clasp.
Operational Service Medal - Border Protection (OSM-BP) Entitled
Australian Defence Medal (ADM) Entitled
Timor Leste Solidarity Medal (TLSM) Entitled

Note that he wears two clasps on his Australian Service Medal. One would be for Timor, but he has no service that would result in a second clasp. (Shown on the right hand photograph of him above)

He also wears, the:

Australian Army Individual Readiness Badge (AIRN) which is to be worn only on Army uniform, by those who meet the criterion at a specific time. It was issued to Brooks but is not to be worn on civilian dress.


An Army Combat Badge (ACB) which is a military decoration that is awarded to any member of the Australian Defence Force for service with an Army combat element in warlike operations. Brooks does not meet that criterion. Not entitled


Operational Service Badge - Border Protection, is issued with the Australian Operational Service Medal (AOSM) He would have been awarded this badge in concurrence with the OSM-BP for Operation Relex. Entitled


In summary he now wears:

Six medals of which these two below, are fake.


Two badges, the AIRN Badge, is inappropriate for wear in civilian clothing and the ACB is fake.

Since last reported, his medal rack remains at two fake medals, but he has added AIRN badge and now wears two fake badges.

A reasonable person would note Brooks's medals, and deem him a hardened returned veteran. In reality, he lives a lie, and we assume that other aspects of his life could also be based on lies.

If you see Brooks wearing his medals on a commemorative occasion ask for his autograph as he is a noteworthy recidivist medals cheat, whose offence will be forever inscribed on this website

Beware of this cheat.

******

Benjamin Mathew  Brooks "tried it on" and has been comprehensively caught.

The photograph shows Brooks on a graduation parade when he became an Corrections Officer in the Northern Territory Correctional services.  We believe he is no longer a Corrections Officer because his general behaviour was less than satisfactory.

In the photograph he is wearing the following medals:

Australian Active Service Medal - Not Entitled

IraqMedal -  Not Entitled

Australian Service Medal - Entitled

Australian Defence Medal - Entitled

In addition he wears an Army Combat Badge to which he has no entitlement.

He never served anywhere to meet the criterion for this badge, which  is:

Been force assigned to a combat team for a period of either a continuous or an aggregate of 90 days satisfactory service; or

Been physically deployed in the same geographical location as a Combat Team and have a primary role to directly support that Combat Team for a period of either a continuous or an aggregate of 90 days satisfactory service.

He is wearing four medals and has earned only two.  The first two are prestigious medals for war service in Iraq, he did not earn them, they are self purchased fakes.

The third medal is for non warlike service in Timor and the last medal is for completing four years service in the Army.

People from all walks of life  understand the shame of stealing the honour of Defence Veterans and we are happy to investigate all reports received from the public.

Falsely wearing medals is a risky business, those who do it will be noticed and subsequently allocated space on this website.

Brooks was reported to us by a member of the Public and our investigation ascertained that he is a fraud and a wannabe who is very welcome on this website.

UPDATE LENIHAN MARCH 20

Following our original report on Lenihan there have been major ructions at the Maryborough Qld RSL, including numerous front page media headlines.

Lenihan is the Club Manager of the Maryborough RSL. The RSL Club and the Sub Branch is an amalgamated organisation where the "RSL Club section" is managed by the Sub Branch executive. Lenihan was appointed manager of the RSL Club in early 2018.

LENIHAN


When appointed he addressed his staff, and told them that he is an East Timor Veteran, who was involved in fighting in the war in East Timor. That was a lie.

Genuine veterans heard his address and could discern inconsistencies in his story. We investigated the matter and found that Lenihan is a liar and a wannabe, and we published our findings on this website in late 2018. Despite our findings, the Maryborough RSL executive chose to believe that Lenihan was a genuine returned veteran, and the RSL Sub Branch President Mr George Mellick strongly supported Lenihan by keeping him in his job and threatening ANZMI with legal action paid for by the RSL.

MELLICK


Lenihan's denials of being a wannabe continued throughout 2019, resulting in Lenihan being charged by Qld State Police, for falsely claiming to be a returned veteran, and wearing medals he had not been awarded.

During the Police investigation, it was discovered that Lenihan had illegal drugs in his possession. As a consequence, Lenihan was also charged with the drug offence.

In late 2019 Lenihan went on fully paid stress leave. Not because of the stress of his job, but because of the wannabe lies he told whilst addressing RSL staff in 2018.

At the RSL Club, throughout 2019, arguments and dissension were rife and was directly linked to Lenihan's lies. Genuine returned veterans could not abide the RSL Club employing a lying wannabe.

These ructions resulted in the Sub Branch President Mr George Mellick being charged with assault for "biffing" an aged Vietnam Veteran.

On 21 Feb 20 in the Maryborough Magistrates Court, Lenihan pleaded guilty to falsely claiming to be a returned Veteran, and to the drug charge. He was fined a total of $1,000 for the two offences.

George Mellick has now been removed from position of President through democratic means, and a new President elected. Mellick appeared in the Magistrates court on 3 Mar 20 and was found guilty of assault with no conviction recorded.

Members of the Sub Branch and the RSL Club have expressed serious concerns that Lenihan, who now has a conviction for illegal drug possession and a conviction under the Defence Act 1903 for falsely pretending to be a returned veteran, can remain fully employed on self inflicted stress leave.

As the current Club Manager, and a convicted drug offender, Lenihan should never be able to hold the Maryborough RSL Club's Liquor License in the future. He should be given the boot immediately and replaced with a credible and honest person.

The final chapter will be written when action is taken regarding Lenihan's employment.

UPDATE LENIHAN 26 NOV 2019

Before you read this update re-read our original report .

In this matter, there has been malfeasance and neglect at all levels of RSL management from Queensland President, District President and Maryborough RSL President. After intensive investigation Lenihan was arrested on 21 Nov 19 by police, and a court date set.

When the matter is settled by the court, we will do a comprehensive report into the management of the Maryborough RSL

*******

Case Notes:

Mr Craig Lenihan is the General Manager at the Maryborough, Queensland, Returned and Services League (RSL) Club.  Prior to Lenihan’s appointment the Sub Branch was in disarray, handling complaints about a previous Sub-Branch President.  Unfortunately, the problems have been exacerbated by the placement of Lenihan who has lied about his military experience, even though being an ex-serviceman was not a criterion for the role of General Manager of the Club.

Lenihan

Before his appointment to Maryborough RSL Craig Lenihan previously managed the Nanango RSL and it was believed among the staff there, that he was a returned veteran (Info from two staff members)

Through direct statements and innuendo Lenihan has claimed to be a Returned Veteran who served in East Timor and "Has been shot at" and "Seen people blown up and his mates killed".  We hold numerous Statutory Declarations detailing how Lenihan has claimed to be a Veteran of Australia’s involvement in the conflict in East Timor.

With the usual guile of a wannabe, Lenihan explains the reason his name cannot be found in any Timor Deployment records is because he "served under another name"

Whilst several members of the Sub-Branch raised concerns about this matter with the Sub-Branch President, it fell on deaf ears. The Sub-Branch President, stated to an ANZMI researcher that ‘he did not wish to get involved  and that the researcher should be very careful because he could’ "fall flat on his face".  The RSL President then hung up the phone.

Researchers have tried to contact Lenihan on numerous occasions, but he will not respond.

It is indeed, a sad affair when an RSL President refuses to become involved in matters where staff members, representing the Sub-Branch are suspected of being Wannabes.  

It is also relevant that the President Mr George Mellick is a hypocrite, as whilst he does not want to become involved in the Lenihan matter he was heavily involved in having his predecessor banned from the RSL for being a Wannabe. After his successful campaign against the previous President, Mellick became the Maryborough RSL President.

Lenihan

The official word from the Wide Bay District Deputy President, Mr Trevor Williamson, is that Lenihan is no longer making such claims, and in any case, although Lenihan is employed by the RSL he is not a member of the Sub Branch and therefore, it is not the business of the Sub Branch to question his claims of Active Service in East Timor.

It is however, the business of ANZMI and Veterans everywhere, and it is the business of the Sub Branch to satisfy its members that a person, representing the organisation at a senior level, making claims to be involved in Armed conflicts with Australian Forces and being a ‘veteran’ are not false, particularly when its members have raised concerns.

ANZMI have numerous Statutory Declarations from people and veterans stating that Lenihan has claimed to have been on active service in East Timor with the Australian Army and had witnessed enemy action.  

On a Statutory Declaration it is stated that Mr Williamson said that he had “Seen Lenihan's medals” and that, “Lenihan had burnt and destroyed his medals”.  Mr Williamson now denies having spoken about Lenihan's medals and claims that the Statutory Declaration is false.

Discord, strife and friction prevails at the Maryborough RSL. Staff and Sub-Branch members have provided a number of Statutory Declarations to the effect that, Lenihan has claimed to be a Veteran of the East Timor conflict.  RSL District executives and the Sub-Branch President claim to have no interest in the matter. Lenihan the wannabe refuses to refute that he is a Returned Veteran, nor comment or provide any evidence of ever serving in the Australian Defence Force during Operations in East Timor.

There is no record of Lenihan ever serving as a member of the Australian Army.  Details of his claimed service in East Timor are flawed by his claims that he served in East Timor in 1991 - 1992.  In fact, Australians were not deployed to East Timor until 1999.

As well as Lenihan refusing to provide any evidence of his service we are happy to declare him a wannabe and provide space for him on this website
