Case Notes:


Mattew Rennie did the hard yards in Korea with 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment. For that service, and his subsequent military and civilian service, he has been awarded eight medals, unfortunately, Rennie has deigned to elongate his rack by adding two non legitimate medals.

Here is his rack:

Member of the Order of Australia OAM
Australian Active Service Medal
Korea Medal
United Nations Korea Medal
General Service Medal 1918-1962
Australian Service Medal
Australian Defence Medal
Republic of Korea War Service Medal

Korea Veterans Ambassador for Peace Medal. Not authorized to be worn.
Unknown Korea Commemoration Medal Not authorized to be worn.

Any person who seeks media fame, should ensure that they are not cheating with their military accoutrements, as veterans, all over Australia are on the look out for those who falsely enhance their service and awards.

Rennie choose to add a little fame, by increasing the size of his medal rack, With medal racks, size does matter. His actions were spotted and he is now an official lodger at the ANZMI Barracks.
