Kenneth Clive Long - Medals cheat

Kenneth Clive Long is a medals cheat, who has obviously purchased a Vietnam Campaign Medal (VCM) to enhance his approved rack. The VCM is a commonly abused award and we have many examples on our pages. In the photograph of Kenneth Long below, the offending medal is on the far right of his rack and is shown below his photograph.



Here is the eligibility for the medal


"The Australian government maintained the basic qualifying criteria specified by the Republic of Vietnam for allied troops. To be eligible for the medal a person must have completed a minimum period of 181 days, either continuous or aggregated, unless: killed on active service (KIA);wounded in action i.e. classified as a Battle Casualty and evacuated as a result of those wounds; or  captured and later released or escaped."

Kenneth Long served in Vietnam for 177 days before being returned to Australia for personal reasons. This information is reflected in both his Defence Service Record and the Department of Veterans Affairs, Certificate of Vietnam War Service. See below:


There are no grey areas, 181 days is the criteria, Kenneth Long does not meet the criteria and has usurped the Governor General’s responsibilities by purchasing and awarding himself the medal.
We know there are many more self awarded and unofficial medals in the Veteran Community and as soon as offenders are recognized they will be exposed as cheats and frauds


Update Kenneth Clive Long

Entitlements to Medals are concise, if you meet the criterion you wear the medal.

Long does not meet the rules to wear the Vietnam Campaign Medal (VCM), however, he is not alone in erring about this matter, there is a Triad of errors. Those erring are:

1. Kenneth Long
2. Central Army Records Office (CARO).
3. Department of Defence Honours and Awards.

We have clearly defined the facts for wearing the medal in our original exposure.

Since posting the exposure, Long has been bleating about removing him from our web site.

Here is his latest bleat:

Date: 25 March 2014 10:16
Subject: Confirmation of Service
To: >

Hi xxxx,

You say there are no grey areas, you are completely wrong!!! There are compassionate reasons and this is where my solution falls. I have emailed you on previous occasions explaining why I am eligible to wear the Vietnamese Campaign Medal and you have refused to listen to any of my explainations. (sic)

I now direct you to take my name from the site and to write an apology to me and my family for misplacing me as a MEDAL CHEAT and causing undue stress upon us all.
I would also like you to inform me of your address and phone number as well as your legal representative as you have not heard the last of me.

Please find attached a record from Honours and Awards dated 19 March, 2014 confirming that I have qualified for and have been awarded the medal.

I await your prompt response,

Ken Long"

Below is the "record from Honours and Awards dated 19 March 2014 " that Long refers to"



Notice that it says:

"An examination of your Service Record confirms that you have qualified for and have been awarded the following awards

Vietnam Campaign Medal"

Department of Defence Honours and Awards did not examine Long's Service Record, if they had, they would discover he has no entitlement for the VCM.

Many years ago CARO erroneously included a VCM on Long's Certificate of Service.

Honours and Awards have simply "parroted" CARO's mistake and instead of correctly advising Long of his non entitlement have very much exacerbated the problem.

Long did not serve 181 days in Vietnam, and he was not returned home because of enemy action. He served 177 days and returned home for administrative or personal reasons.

It would appear that Long lacks the ability to understand simple instructions and even though CARO and Honours and Awards have wrongly confirmed his entitlement any reasonable person would know that they had erred because the criterion of serving 181 days in Vietnam was not met.

We ask that the erring Triad take the following action:

1. Kenneth Long. Get the ribbon off and stop whingeing and making threats.

2. CARO advise long of your error and apologise.

3. Honours and Awards apologise for not properly checking Long's Service
Record and providing incorrect information.

In his email to us Long states that our policy is " that there are no grey areas and that we are completely wrong" Long is correct about there being no grey areas and when the CARO and Honours and Awards advise him or their errors, he will learn that our report is truthful and accurate and there are no grey areas when it comes to medals entitlements.

Case Notes:




Neal Longden poked his head up for a media interview on 7th March 2015. If, like Longden you want to raise your profile by becoming a media star, you should ensure that you are not wearing unearned, non awarded medals.

Longden wears six medals and should only wear five. The last medal is a self purchased commemorative medal worn only for vanity

Here is the offending medal:

It is an Imperial National Defence Medal that is purchased from the United Kingdom for Seventy Five Pounds.

Surname: Love
Christian Names: Andrew Thomas
Country: Australia
State or Province: NSW
City or Town: Shoalhaven
Service: Citizen Military Forces
Case Notes:

Andrew Thomas Love aka (Drew)

He proudly "sports" on his left breast the following medals:

Australian Active Service medal 1945 – 75.

Vietnam Medal

National Service medal

Vietnamese Campaign medal.



 Andrew Thomas Love is neither a National Serviceman nor a Vietnam Veteran.

"Drew" has "conned" the Returned Services League (RSL), and Vietnam Veterans Association NSW Branch Inc., and his "friends" into accepting him as a veteran member.

Full membership to the RSL depends on the following criteria.

You can apply to become a member of the League if you:

Served in any Australian Defence Forces in either of the two World Wars or in any theatre of conflict; or

Served overseas for not less than six months as a member of an approved peace-keeping force; or

Served for not less than six months in the regular or reserve forces of the ADF, or of any country not an enemy of Australia (shorter service can also qualify if discharge was honourable and for reasons beyond an individual's control); or

If you are an Australian or allied citizen and served with or in support of the ADF or allied forces in any theatre or conflict; or

Served during World War II, as a member of the Australian Women's Land Army or as a voluntary aid detachment in a military or convalescent hospital .

Full/Ordinary membership to the VVAA.

Any person who served in South Vietnam between the 23rd May 1962 and the 29th April 1975 (both dates inclusive) in any of the Armed Forces.

On both the RSL and the VVAA NSW Branch Inc., Applications to Join, the spaces where service details and regimental numbers are listed have been left blank, yet the applications have been approved for full membership.


Now how can genuine veterans preserve their honour when our primary veteran organisations do not follow simple rules and check the bona fides of applicants?   Organisations that do not follow the proper protocols for membership are aiding and abetting the proliferation of Wannabes, Military impostors and pension fraudsters

"Drew" claims to have served in Vietnam, in a Cavalry unit, under another name, this was in 1971. He has been seen proudly sporting the Armoured Corps Blazer, Beret and Badge.

Andrew Love has experienced Military Service, he enlisted in the Citizens Military Forces (CMF), 1st,15th Royal New South Wales Lancers, on 25 July 1972 as a Trooper Recruit and was discharged medically unfit, 14 November 1972 as a Trooper Recruit.

We have a copy of  "Drew's" Application to Enlist in the CMF. To the question in paragraph 17 that asks, "Have you served in any armed Force" "Drew" answered   - "No"   



"Drew" was enlisted into the CMF as a Trooper Recruit and discharged four months later as a Trooper Recruit. Would a medal bedecked, jungle trained, Armoured Personnel Carrier Jockey enlist into the CMF as a Trooper Recruit in the year following his operational service. "Drew," says he did. "Drew" was unable to cope with four months of CMF training so don't tell me he ever pulled on a boot with the professionals.



Drew's Record of Service for his time with the CMF shows no entries in the block for "Decorations and Medals", why, because Drew never had any medals in 1972 because he never earned any in South Vietnam in 1971 as he claims.


Drew has paraded himself as a National Serviceman and Vietnam veteran for many years, in the Nowra region, he even ran for election to office in the Bomaderry RSL, advertising his qualifications as "A National Serviceman and Vietnam Veteran" on an Election Flyer.


A copy of the Flyer was sent to CARO for verification and on the 26th July 2000 CARO wrote; inter alia

"The attachment from the Bomaderry R.S.L Club Limited, Qualifications and Experience of Candidates for Election 2000, is of interest as it records that Andrew (Drew) Love was a National Serviceman and a Vietnam veteran.   This office has no record of Andrew Love being either".

 The Federal Police investigated Drew in Jul 2000.   In a letter from a Federal Agent,  of 4 July 2000 it was stated inter alia   

"This matter has been further investigated by our Operations Monitoring Centre (OMC) and it has been established that while Andrew LOVE is recorded as having four (4) months service with the Australian armed forces in 1972, it has been further established that it is highly unlikely that Andrew LOVE is in fact a Vietnam Veteran. It is also understood that Andrew LOVE is not currently receiving any benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs".


Love said in a letter that he wrote in late July 2004. inter alia

"The name Love does not appear on the Nominal Roll of Vietnam, I repeat that it does not appear.   The reasons for this are confidential and will remain so."

He further wrote:

"In October 2000 my record was brought up in discussion at the Bomaderry RSL Sub Branch, coincidently it was raised when I was not in attendance.   I produced the following to the then Secretary and the current President.  They being Dave Hardy and & Alex Stevens and now the President of the VVA Sub Branch Bob O'Grady has viewed these.

Original Medical Files.

Original Driving Test (Army)

In confidence Records of Service inclusive of this (sic) decorations and medals.

RAS Badge with accompanying paper work identifying the number and recipient.

Army correspondence re issue of medals"

Drew has supporters in the Nowra area who believe he is their friend, some have seen the documents he flashes around and believe his stories. Friends of "Drew" I say to you that you must be gullible but remarkable people to accept this human enigma as a friend.

We wrote "Drew" a letter requesting proof that he is an ex National Serviceman and a Vietnam Veteran, he chose to ignore our letter.

All we want Drew, is to see some real evidence to support your claims like:

The number on the rear of the RAS Badge.

The name inscribed on your medals.

The Record of Service that you have flashed around.

 We believe, whilst "Drew" was thundering around Phuoc Tuy Province, Vietnam in his Armoured Personnel Carrier a "Twin Spirit", was working as a Fitter and Machinist Toolmaker in LOVES Carbide Tooling Services, 67 Clapham Rd Sefton, NSW, a family business in Sefton, Sydney. When "Drew" enlisted in the CMF in 1972 he noted this employment from 1968 to 1972 in the Work History section paragraph 13 of his CMF Enlistment Application.  


Funny thing, the "Twin Spirit's" name was also Andrew Thomas Love born 16 Oct 1951. He looked the same; he had the same name and was born on the same day – If it looks like a "Drew", quacks like a "Drew" and waddles like a "Drew" then it is a "Drew" and Drew Love has been bowled out for a duck because "Drew" Love was never in Vietnam, in 1971 he was safe, working nine to five in the family business in Sefton, Sydney

"Drew" Love was never a National Serviceman or a Vietnam Veteran; however, he is a conman, a liar, and a thief of veterans' honour.   He has "conned" people who he claimed as his friends, he has lied about his military service, and he has stolen the honour of the veteran whose medals he wears. Incidentally to whom do the medals belong, if they weren't issued to "Drew" they may be plastic or perhaps they are medals that have been donated to the RSL and now listed as missing – anything is possible. Only "Drew" can enlighten us about "his" medals.

Drew your threats of legal action that you have dished out for many years as your first line of defence do not wash with CPMH, because, we have irrefutable proof of your miserable actions.

Andrew Thomas Love you will stay on our web site as a chronic offender and one of the worst that we have had to deal with. You have basked in the lime light of the honour of veterans, now you can wallow in the shame of your exposure.

Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Commencement of service: 0
Completion of service: 0
Case Notes:

Allen J Loveridge – aka “The Pathetic Parasite” is a Wannabe, Liar, Fraud, Conman, Cheat, Sponger and Loverat.

According to Allen J Loveridge who “crawls” around the Campsie, Parramatta, Merrylands area of Sydney NSW, he is an Army Commissioned Officer who graduated from Royal Military College Duntroon (RMC) and is on continuous “Secret Missions” to world wide destinations



Social Networks like Facebook and LinkedIn are not good places to make ridiculous claims about your “military career”, particularly if you have never pulled on a military boot of any kind.  See Loveridge’s Facebook and LinkedIn entries




Notice the ridiculous claims made by Loveridge in the documents


Document 1.

He states in the column on the right that he is one of the people being transported to the Navy ship.

Document 2.

Says he is:

An Australian Army Captain, serving with 6th Brigade.

A combat Specialist.

An Intelligence Specialist.

An Infantry Officer.

Document 3.

Claims to be:

Allan Loveridge  "Intell Australian Defence Force, who was educated at “Australian Royal Military Collage” (sic)". The idiot can’t even spell College.

Loveridge claims to be a secret agent for the Australian army who graduated from RMC two years ago, as no less than a captain, and claims to have been to Iraq, Afghanistan, and all around the world. Says he was recruited as a “computer hacker” and goes on overseas missions, earning three thousand dollars per week

Even though he boasts about his high pay, he never has cash. He explains this as being because he “donates his pay to a Children’s Hospital Charity Fund to avoid tax”.

Loveridge is the lowest form of conman, who uses the ploy of being an Army “Secret Agent” to charm, and then sponge off vulnerable young women. He lodges in their house, pays nothing towards his “board and keep”, tells lies about paying household expenses, and then when it all catches up with him he moves on. Many have subsequently incurred debt and financial hardship due to his ongoing deception and false promises of restitution

One of his partners often dropped him off at a Sydney Military establishment where he pretended to work, but he would return back home a few hours later.

In recent times we have intercepted text messages sent to and from Loveridge -  Allan J Loveridge, Super Spy. They make amusing reading

27 May 13

“ Me - hey where are you

We have a lot of equipment over there that has to be brought back.

me -OK I will email you then

Can't no email access at Richmond RAAF base”


There it is, two days in the life of Loveridge - Allan J Loveridge Super Spy, who is really a pathetic Wannabe, Liar, Fraud, Conman, Cheat, Sponger and Loverat.

We have unearthed other “Loverat Secret Service” scum on this web site here are some of them:

Montgomery   http://www.anzmi.net/montgomery/montgomery.html

Bennetts http://www.anzmi.net/bennetts/bennetts.html

Gwilliam  http://www.anzmi.net/gwilliam/gwilliam.html

As well as the immorality of what Loveridge is doing by interfering in the lives of vulnerable women, he is also committing offences against the Defence Act 1903 Part VII Section 80A whereas he is falsely claiming to be a returned veteran. That offence has a maximum penalty of $3,300 or six months imprisonment or both.

Have no doubt; Loveridge is an insipid, despicable low down parasite who could never hold any position in the Australian Defence Force, but he will hold a position on this web site for the rest of his life.  From now on, any person who types his name into a computer Search Engine will discover the truth about  Loveridge - Allan J Loveridge - codenamed “The pathetic parasite”

Surname: Lovett
Christian Names: Gordon Craig
Country: Australia
State or Province: QLD
City or Town: Sorrento
Service #: 2152459
Service: CMF (Army)
Branch: RAA
Commencement of service: 05 Dec 63
Completion of service: 03 May 68
Case Notes:




Gordon Craig Lovett now aged Sixty Nine years, went to the  Vietnam war on a secret mission. He has proof of that service which is written onto a yellow piece of paper, however, because what is written on the paper is "Very Secret" he can only show you the piece of paper and not the contents.

Notice that Lovett wears five Australian Medals, they are:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

General Service Medal


Australian Defence Medal

Republicof VietnamCampaign Medal

The photograph provides clear evidence to Law Enforcement agencies of offences against the Defence Act 1903, Part VII Sections 80A and 80B.

80A. Falsely representing to be returned soldier

80B. Improper use of service decorations  

The penalty for both of these offences is a maximum fine of $3,300 or six months imprisonment or both.

Here is what Lovett has said about his Military Service.

"He left Darwin with a specialist "Clean up" group of Australian Soldiers working as a United States (US) Marines and was deployed at Ben Hoa (sic) Vietnam. During his service he was wounded by a bullet grazing his head. He and another soldier were sent to Vung Tau (sic) for twenty one days of Rest and Recuperation (R&R) leave.  For his head wound he was awarded a US Purple Heart Medal, but has not yet received it.  The yellow piece of paper gives evidence of the Purple Heart but as previously stated it is for his eyes only"

Here is the truth of his service.

Lovett enlisted into the Australian Citizens Military Forces (CMF)  on the 5 December 1963. He was allocated to a 9th Light Anti Aircraft Regiment, Royal Australian Artillery .  He was discharged on 3 May 1968 for non attendance.  During the 1,650 days that he was a member of the CMF,  he managed to work for only 148 days over the five and a half year period. 

Considering that it takes at least 90 days for a recruit to complete basic training. It is very apparent that he would not have been an effective Gunner.

In recent times Lovett joined an ex Service Group on the Gold Coast of Queensland and began uttering the nonsense of his military history.  He was quickly recognised as a fraud and action was taken to remove him from the organisation.

Lovett's Service file has been perused and it reflects only his CMF Service. He is not listed on the Official Vietnam Nominal Roll and he is not listed on The Casualty List, which would have been the case if he was wounded in Action.

Every Veteran who served in Vietnam would recognise that Lovett's story is simply a pack of lies.

Lovett is a traditional liar fraud and wannabe, he is an example of the reason we exist. He steals the honour of all Veterans and grossly insults the memory of those who did not return.

We welcome him to our web site and warn those from the Gold Coast area to keep a watch for this despicable fraud.


Surname: Luk
Christian Names: Kelly Wingkee
Country: Australia
State or Province: ACT
City or Town: Canberra
Service: Army
Branch: RMC Duntroon
Case Notes:

Kelly Wingkee Luk –  Federal Police Officer and Wannabe

Prior to joining the Australian Federal Police, Kelly Wingkee Luk had the privilege of graduating from the Australian Defence Force Academy, and then attending Royal Military College (RMC) Duntroon to finish off his training as a Commissioned Army Officer.

 Luk did not graduate from RMC and was discharged from the Army.  His behaviour, in relation to this exposure, indicates his removal from RMC was a wise decision.  Below is Kelly Wingkee Luk in various poses in the uniform of a Federal Police Officer wearing Defence Force medals, medal ribbands and other accoutrements.



In one photograph Luk is wearing the Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) with a clasp and the Australian Defence Medal (ADM), in addition he is wearing a Peacekeepers Blue Beret. The AASM is awarded with a clasp to denote the prescribed operation. Subsequent awards to the same person are made with an additional clasp.  The Governor-General has approved the following clasps for the award of the Australian Active Service Medal: Kuwait, Cambodia (20/10/91-7/10/93), Balkans (12/1/92-24/1/97), Vietnam 1975, East Timor (Faber 16/9/99-23/2/00, Warden 16/9/99-10/4/00, Tanager 20/2/00-19/5/02, Citadel 20/5/02-17/8/03), Somalia (Solace 10/1/93-21/5/93, Land & Air 2 nd UN Op 1/5/93-Present), Namibia, Rwanda, ICAT and IRAQ 2003. Luk was not involved in any of those deployments.

In the other photo he is wearing three unrecognizable medal ribbands and an Army Combat Badge (ACB).  

The truth is he has no entitlement to any Medals, ribbands, beret or the ACB

We have been contacted by people who served with Luk and they advise that he enlisted in January 1998 and resigned in February 2002 and spent his entire Defence Career in Canberra. Never at any time was he deployed on operational service.

By wearing medals he did not earn and by claiming to be a returned veteran, as further evidenced by the ACB, Luk has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 Part VII Sections 80A and 80B. Both these offences carry a maximum penalty of $3,300 fine and six months imprisonment or both.

We don’t know if Luk is still a serving Federal Police Officer and we make no comment regarding that aspect, however, Veterans everywhere, will not tolerate frauds and wannabes who wear medals and badges without having done the hard work to earn them.

Apparently he never absorbed any of the rich military traditions and personal integrity that is required of a Commissioned Army Officer, because he has proven that he is a liar, fraud and wannabe, and therefore deserves the ignominious position of being featured on this web site.
