I posted about this WALT last year but the picture I posted didn't have a clear view of his face.
I got a call from up North last week and got sent this picture from a local newspaper.
When I first spoke to him a few years ago he said he was in the AAC for 6 years and got MD'd for injuries sustained in GW 1. He is a Drum Major in a couple of Pipe Bands in Central Scotland and has been seen parading around in RM Blues uniform, A & SH WO's kit, and Rifles SNCO Kit. He told the local news that he was ex SF, and now his Walting has got worse, he's been awarded 5 more medals? and now wore a sand coloured beret at the Alloa remembrance parade 2011 considering he's been out 12 years I think he needs to be outed properly or is the Balklava club in Stirling a cover for "Walts are us"

What is the middle medal on the top row ? And the furthest from his buttons ?

He has to have a problem !
I did a little recce and found it is either the Royal Navy LS&GC or a UN 50 Year Medal.
From eyes on the day the gap under the second row had a Cross type medal in it but the pin fell off. This picture was taken after he laid a wreath at the Alloa memorial, we don't have an RBL in the town any more but this Walt keeps getting invited by the council to lay a wreath year after year. The Auld Vets in the town don't now any of these medals as its well after their time.

Why not ask him when he served? Then pop over to Rum Ration and ask around. They are not a large Corps. It should be easy to check if someone in the know knows him or can check when he went through. Then, if he appears to be telling porkies, as you know people in his locality you can pass on any info gained. They can then approach him.





edit just because I'm nosy. Is this the same guy? The beat goes on for Drum Major / Alloa & Hillfoots Advertiser / News / Roundup

edited again because i am old and slow :)

It would be quite something if all of this, the cancer included, was a load of shite. He would have to be one deeply disturbed chappy to make all of that up.

Can anyone tell me why he is wearing "his" bling under his neck? Have I missed something?

I'm sure he joined E coy 51 Highland around 2001/2. if it's the same guy he was supposed to have been in the army air corps as a door gunner.

According to the newspaper report he was 35 in 2010, which gives a date of birth in 1975, which means he got his Gulf Medal when he was 15 or 16.
Did the cadets go to the Gulf?
