Hunt for Remembrance Day conman
Got to salute the cheek of this guy, posing as a war hero and a SAS veteran, could it be he collects medals and been posing all of his life to impress people that he was a member of the SAS?
At least he was wearing a poppy and admitted he was a fake before the parade started. But why didn't the march organizer stop him from marching in the parade.
In fact very few civilians would of noted what the medals where and what they really stood for only guys and girls that had served would of realized one British soldier could not of acquired the collection this guy was wearing.
I am sure that Bereaved families would not of noticed, but of course the guy had no sense of honour, and most probaly a complete jerk.
I have met people like him boasting of serving in units known for their bravery and being something they really are not. Most vets can tell the fakes some like me just listen in amusement but really these people should be pitied as they have no real character just a bunch of Walter Mitty's
Would I report this guy if I knew him? Hell no, this story is punishment enough, just imagine how he will be treated by friends in the local pubs.
Cheered by thousands as he marched alongside brave troops during a Remembrance Day parade, he looked every inch the battle-hardened war veteran.
But on closer inspection, his striking collection of 17 medals - including the Distinguished Service Order and Military Cross - was not what it seemed.
No single servicemen could have been awarded all the medals, and they were wrongly displayed, experts said last night.
