Case Notes:




Well, here we go again.   This is Darryl PINK, an ex-Navy member and a serving Vice President of the Goolwa RSL Sub Branch (South Australia) who again demonstrates a total lack of respect for Medal Policy and Protocols. 

Just when we thought we had cleaned up all the RSL Tin wearers, along comes Darryl Keith PINK a prime example of a person wearing a "Vanity" medal that is nothing more than worthless tin junk.

PINK is entitled to, and has been awarded four medals for his service, but as you can see, he wears five. The last one is a self-purchased duplication of the second medal.

PINK is entitled to the following official awards:

Australian Active Service Medal 1945-75 (AASM-45-75)for service in Vietnam

Vietnam Logistic and Support Medal (VLSM), for service as a member or crew of a ship in the prescribed area of operations of Vietnam in support of Australian forces

Australian Service Medal 1945-75(ASM 45-75) with Clasp FESR for his service with the Far East Special Reserve for service in South East Asia and

Australian Defence Medal (ADM) for completing his enlistment period in the RAN

PINK is entitled to these awards by virtue of his service at sea in support of the Far East Special Reserve and for undertaking escort duties for HMAS Sydney on her deployments to Vietnam.

PINK has also added to rack a piece of worthless junk, in the form of the Vietnam Logistic Support Medal:

This medal is a Commemorative self-purchased junk medal created by one of the Navy Associations. As such if they are to be worn at all, they should be worn on the right breast.    This medal would have cost PINK no more than $50 and do nothing more than feed his vanity to be seen as a Veteran with five medals instead of four.

This report is but one of a litany of RSL Executives being identified as Medal Cheats appearing on our website, surely the time has come for the National Executive of the RSL to take a stand on this issue and remove these clowns from Executive positions in the League.   The various State RSL Headquarters have spent many thousands of dollars trying to understand why younger veterans are not joining the RSL.   Perhaps all they need do is look at the ANZMI website and look at the long list of RSL Executives who have been caught out for the answer.

Younger veterans are not fools, and they will not allow themselves to be led by them.   The time has come for the RSL to act.   

We welcome Darryl PINK to our ever expanding list of medals cheats.
