Gordon Blair is a member of the Returned and Services League (RSL) at Hornsby in NSW.  Prior to that he was the Secretary at another RSL.   

The above photograph was  taken at ANZAC Cove, Gallipoli.

Blair is wearing:

National Medal for services to the community as a civilian - Entitled

Australian Defence Medal for service in the Australian Defence Force - Entitled

New South WalesStateEmergency Services Long Service Medal - State award not to be worn with Defence Medals. Must be worn on right breast.

Year of the Volunteer Medal - Self purchased Tin medal

Blair exhibits symptoms of the malaise within the RSL.  A recent National RSL strategy is to bestow on any person who has ever served in the Defence Force the title of "Veteran".

For the last One Hundred years a "Veteran" has been a person who has served overseas in a war zone, but now on a whimsical notion of the RSL, Gordon Blair is a "Veteran" and according to his demeanour at Anzac Cove wants everyone to believe that he is one.

Blair is wearing only one medal that relates to Australian Defence service and that is the lowest grade of Australian medals, the Australian Defence Medal (ADM).  It is issued to all Service people who complete four years service.

At ANZAC Cove Gallipoli on Anzac Day 2015  Blair was strutting his stuff pretending to be a be meddled  Australian "Veteran" when in fact he was a strutting Fedora hatted Popinjay without sufficient nous to understand Australian medals protocols.

We are reliably advised by an RSL Executive that Blair was warned about his disregard for medals protocol and he took no notice.

Genuine Veterans (not ersatz RSL Veterans) and ex service men and women should know medals protocols and should also know that if they disrespect traditions and protocols they stand a very good chance of featuring on this website.

We welcome the very silly Mr Gordon Blair to our web site.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Surname: Blair
Christian Names: Ian Douglas
Country: Australia
State or Province: New South Wales
City or Town: Narrabri
Case Notes:

 

It is unusual for a person to have survived as a fake Vietnam Veteran for forty years. Ian Douglas Blair, has maintained that charade in the town of Narrabri, in regional NSW for that long. The longer the charade, the harder the fall, and forty years ensures a very loud "thud", when the six thousand people of Narrabri learn of his deceit


There were twenty nine people from Narrabri who served in the war in Vietnam. All are listed on the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) website, Ian Blair is not listed.


In any case, he was born 2 February 1954, and no Australian Army personnel, below the age of nineteen years served in Vietnam.

There were no Australian Army units in Vietnam after February 1973, when Blair would have been nineteen years old. Of course Blair has addressed this anomaly by stating he lied about his age to the Army, on enlistment.

We hold Statutory Declaration, with details of Blair's antics over the years.

Blair has said he served with 10th Royal Australian Regiment (10 RAR). No such unit ever served in Vietnam during the war.

He avowed never to have anything to do with DVA, or the Returned and Services League (RSL), however, he does attend ANZAC day commemorations, and has wept over the memories of his "service". "Crocodile tears" for "crocodile service". He has said that it is "too hard to talk about his Vietnam service".

He also declares that he was awarded a Victoria Cross (VC) and a United States Purple Heart medal for his Vietnam service. He never wears medals, as like many on this website, claims he "threw them overboard on the sea journey back to Australia".

We are pleased to relieve Blair of the stress and anxiety of wondering when he would be exposed as a liar and a wannabe. He can now live without weeping on Anzac day, and will no longer have to remember what lies he has told.

Should he desire to apologize to those from Narrabri who actually served in the Vietnam war, we will be happy to furnish him with the names of the twenty two Soldiers, four Sailors, and three Airmen from Narrabri who did serve the hard yards in Vietnam.

Like Blair, those who falsely claim to be returned veterans will eventually experience the shame of exposure, and learn that the kudos of their false service, is surpassed by public shame, particularly in small regional towns like Narrabri.

Welcome aboard Ian Blair and throwing medals overboard on HMAS ANZMI is frowned upon

Surname: Blair
Christian Names: Kerry Roy
Country: Australia
State or Province: Tasmania
City or Town: Unknown
Service: Army
Branch: Catering
Case Notes:

Kerry Roy BLAIR believed to reside in Tasmania served in the Australian Army with the Australian Army Catering Corps (AACC) and did one tour of South Vietnam.

The reason he appears on our site is that he claims to have served with the Australian Special Air Service and was wounded.



I



We are in possession of Statutory Declarations that Kerry Blair and his wife made the following statements.


Kerry Roy Blair has obviously been telling these lies for some time as well as to his wife who believes him. You will also note that the term “medivac” was used this term is used for evacuation back to Australia for a medical illness. A combat incident was referred to as a Casevac from the field.

Here is his military history.

61821 Kerry Roy Blair enlisted in the army for 3 years on 07 June 1967, completed his recruit training at 1 Recruit Training Battalion, Kapooka and was allocated to the AACC for corps training. He was posted to Southern Command as a Steward on 03 November 1967. He attended training at the Jungle Training Centre (JTC) and was posted to Headquarters 1st Australian Logistic Support Group in Vung Tau, South Vietnam which was a large logistic base and a Rest and Recreation Centre for troops at the main Australian Task Force to have time off from a combat area. He was promoted to temporary Lance Corporal 23 June 1969.
 



On returning to Australia 28 January 1970 he was posted to Headquarters Puckapunyal as a Steward and discharged from the army 06 June 1970. He re-enlisted in the Australia Regular Army Reserve for 5 years as a Steward.

He was awarded the Vietnam Medal, South Vietnam Campaign Medal and the returned from Active Service Badge

For a person who has stepped on a landmine, he still has both legs and no sign of any injury as can be seen in the photograph.


 


Kerry Roy Blair you have been telling quite some tall tales for a number of years and it has caught up with you. You and others like you who tell lies about their service will grace our website for years to come.

Surname: Blanc
Christian Names: Alfred
Country: Australia
State or Province: QLD
City or Town: Finch Hatton
Case Notes:

Alfred (Fred) Blancborn on 2 March 1938 in Switzerland and now of Finch Hatton, Queensland arrived in Australia sometime during the late 1950s or early1960s aboard passenger ship ORANJE under General Assisted Passage Scheme. On arrival he worked as a Cook on the Snowy Mountain Scheme

When we investigated Alfred Blanc’s military history, contrary to Blanc’s claims we drew a blank.  This Swiss fondue exponent claims he served with the Australian Defence Force in Vietnam. But that’s not all, he was of course something special, as he served in the “Australian Intelligence Unit” in Vietnam.

 

 

Some Finch Hatton Returned Services League (RSL) members have been suspicious of Fred Blanc for quite a while. Finch Hatton RSL members have seen Fred wearing medals and have heard Fred tell stories of his “service” in Vietnam. The following anecdotes about Fred have been passed to us from Finch Hatton.

“Fred claimed he was in Australia less than a year when he was “called up for service” and  that the Military Police picked him up because he didn't front up. When he was enlisted he was allocated to Intelligence Corps as an interpreter because he could speak French.

Fred must have studied hard for his wannabe role because his knowledge of weapons in Vietnam is spot on and he fitted in well with some of the RSL members,  He claims to have been at Fire Support Base Coral on the 13 May 1968 in the Bien Hoa Province of Vietnam.

 He claims he was in a “hot helicopter extraction” and he had to wait for a second chopper when there was not room to take them all.

He even got a bloke to come to the RSL Anzac Breakfast and told the RSL members his guest was a Veteran like him, the poor fellow was a tradesman and had never been near the armed forces in his life.   Later when we talked to this bloke he admitted the deception and said he was so embarrassed when someone asked him what it was like “over there” that he had to say that it was something that he didn't  want to talk about."

Since Blanc came under suspicion at the RSL he always finds a reason for not participating in commemorative occasions and of course it upsets him to talk about his war experience. Blanc claims to speak four languages. Blanc also speaks a fifth language and that is the language of liars and wannabes.

We have confirmed that Blanc does not have a Defence Service File at Central Army Records Office (CARO) See below:

Dear Mrs xxxxxxxxx,

Thank you for your query about the service records relating to the following servicemen:

Alfred BLANC

 
Post-WWII Army records are held by the Central Army Records Office (CARO). They have advised us that they were unable to locate a Post 1947 Army Service record for this individual. We provided them with the following information:
 
Name:                           Alfred BLANC             Date & place of birth:      1938-1939, Switzerland

CARO Reference Officer

Access & Communications

Blanc does not appear on the official, Department of Veterans Affairs Nominal Roll, which he explains away as being, because he was in an Intelligence unit. Sorry Blanc you are a liar.  All Army Intelligence personnel are listed on the Nominal Roll along with all of those who served in other sensitive units including the Special Air Service Squadrons.

Blanc has two medals to exhibit he claims one is for Vietnam and the other for Intelligence.  Obviously it is not for his own intelligence as he appears totally devoid of that basic asset.

Blanc most likely had an interesting life, but for reasons known only to wannabes, he decided to improve his image by adding a little clandestine war service to the mix. In doing so he is hereby exposed on our web site where he will remain for the rest of his life.

There is no need for any further suspicion from the Finch Hatton RSL because Blanc is well and truly “outed” as a liar and a wannabe.

Liars and wannabes are very welcome on our site, most of them are so dopey they almost march up to us and say “make me infamous”

Blanc is one such simpleton

Case Notes:

 

 

The worst kind of wannabes are those who claim Special Forces heroic service. They also blame their bad social behaviour on Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) resulting from their "operational war service". Jaydon P Blanch also known as A.C Blanch and Jaydon Thompson is such a person.

Blanch1 2017 04 08

Blanch2 2017 04 08

Notice in the left hand photograph Blanch is wearing a Medal Riband Bar on his lapel. The Riband Bar is for the Australian Afghanistan Medal - Operation Slipper. The second photograph is also of Blanch but he has named himself Jay Thompson.

Blanch3 2017 04 08

Blanch4 2017 04 08

We have Statutory Declarations from people who have stated:

"Jaydon said he was in the Australian Forces and:

Was often away overseas for long periods of time on tours. In 2013 he claimed to have completed six tours in Afghanistan and in more recent times claims nine tours

He said he was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Special Air Service Regiment (SASR) .

He claims he had previously served as a Pilot in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) until his eyesight became bad and moved to SASR as a Sniper, where he stayed for Eighteen years.

He said he suffered badly from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and was shot twice in Afghanistan

Was discharged in 2013 and is waiting for a large payout".

Below is an excerpt from his Facebook page where he uses the name Jay Thompson.

Blanch5 2017 04 08

Notice he tells about his "tours in combat" and he is thinking of his friends who fell along the way.

We phoned Blanch on the 3rd February 2017 and he denied ever having mentioned to any person that he had served in Afghanistan with SASR. He said he served in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) for a very short time during 1993 and 1994. In the above insert he say his father served in Vietnam. He was asked what his father's name was, and he said William HAIG. No person with that name served in Vietnam.

Blanch explained the Facebook entry (shown above) by saying that someone had hacked his account and written the lies about his service history.

He is currently operating a model train business using the name of Jay Thompson.

Blanch6 2017 04 08

We can find no trace of Jaydon Blanch or Jay Thompson ever having served in the Australian Defence Force. He may have served for a very short time in the RAN, but by his own admission never served in the RAAF or the Army with SASR.

Regarding his false claims of expecting a "large payout" for his Army service. He has "conned" people for loans, using the non existent expected "Large Payout" as collateral.

Blanch was advised to complete a Statutory Declaration denying what others have said in Statutory Declarations. He was advised that his Statutory Declaration would be sent to Federal Police with the view of establishing whether he has made a false declaration. He has not responded.

In his house he has an engraved glass plaque from "his unit" SASR, commemorating his Eighteen years of service. His rank engraved on the plaque is "Lt Colonel". We have spoken to the proprietor of the shop that supplied the plaque, and established that the plaque was ordered, purchased and paid for by Jaydon P Blanch.

Like all "PTSD wracked" lying wannabes, Blanch uses his false service to charm vulnerable people and con them into providing him with money.

Blanch is a pathological liar who now joins many of his ilk on our website. We will also report his deceit to NSW State Police. We welcome him to our Hall of Shame where he will stay for many years so that any person typing his name into an Internet Search Engines will be aware of his true nature.

In reality he was a Lieutenant in the Army Reserve who was terminated in August 2017. During his service he was deployed to Solomon Islands for Operation "Anode" and was awarded an Australian Service Medal. He was also awarded an Australian Defence Medal as shown in photograph below.

 

Boak4 2018 12 16

 

He has a Linkedin Account and has stolen a media release showing "him" shaking hands with the Honourable Peter Dutton MP. Boak looks similar to the person in the photograph and has stolen his identity to indicate he has a chest full of medals.   He has changed the name in the heading and placed it on his Linkedin account.

 

Boak has a high profile in the Airlie Beach area. High profiles with media involvement and lying about military service are not recommended because communities all over Australia now include current and former Australian Defence Force personnel, who can recognize a cheat in the blink of an eye.

 

We are pleased to add Nicholas George Boak now of Airlie Beach to our website.
