Not sure if this is the correct place on the board to ask this but I'm wondering if anybody out there could help me? I am a member of another board and we have a member there who calls himself The Colonel. He claims to have been with the QLR from 1989 - 2003 and is a retired Lt. Col. He claims to have been awarded a DSO for commanding his regiment in Bosnia. He posted a photo of himself once (he didn't keep it up on the board for very long) but he was dressed in a red tunic and was holding a bearskin. On the bearskin was a white hackle with a red tip. Some of us find his claims to be a tad exaggerated, especially when we consider the way he conducts himself on the board. I will add he claims to have a CBE as well as the DSO, and to be an HMI of the Armed Forces. I suggested to him a red over white hackle surely indicated the RRF, but he has informed me the red tip merely indicates he was the Regiment's commander. Unfortunately we don't know his full name, he claims his first name is James. He claims he is also a millionaire with two homes, one in Hampshire and one in Yorkshire, and he's a Justice of the Peace. I've read your Walter Mitty pages with much interest and have taken the plunge and joined, to ask your thoughts on our Colonel. I realise the QLR no longer exists, but if there is anybody who could confirm the CO of the Regiment would in fact wear such a hackle, it would be much appreciated. Your assistance and other thoughts would be welcome. I have also tried to find out information regarding his claim about the DSO and can find nothing which would link remotely to him.
