Just curious, but is anyone able to ID his medals?


"fake solider" ?? It seems that the Daily Record's spelling checker isn't working

A former Army cadet instructor has been booted out of Legion Scotland over bogus claims he is a forces veteran.

Eric Wicks, who has never been a soldier, has been banned by the national organisation after members raised concerns over his military service boasts.
 
At least he isn't threatening anyone who dares to doubt him with a baguette.
 
You utter bastards. Have some pity will you?

His seven years of service in the shadowy ACF (badged QOH to disguise the cloak and dagger nature of his work) has left him with PTSD* and his father’s Veterans Badge is now his ‘comfort blankie’.

Anyway, his brother and his dad served in The Regiment (a thinly veiled link to ‘them' perhaps?) so he is simply carry on a noble family tradition.


*Wicks’ wife Lesley-Anne later contacted us to say her husband had post-traumatic stress disorder and the veterans’ badge he was photographed wearing at events was actually his deceased father’s.
 
Any Scottish Arrsers about to drop off the radar?
@MrBane has mysteriously disappeared.

Most of us put it down to his DIY conversion of the old tin bath in his holiday let to a jacuzzi where he mixed the flow of electricity with the flow of water.

How long ago was Wee Walter McWalter‘s deception uncovered? The time scales seem about right...

Wicks has been banned from Legion Scotland until February 2021
A year’s ban issued in February following the inquiry and disciplinary process...?

Of course he does.

State of the RBL, can they afford the loss of subs?
 
I thought anybody could join the RBL these days? When I was in it many years ago, they used to distinguish between former service members and non former service members. That stopped a long time back.

Ok he’s been telling porkies about his previous service life because it’s actually non existent but apart from the derision of those who he has lied to, is it worth all the fuss?

If he's living in East Calder I can believe it, the place is enough to give anyone the shudders.
