Here's a piccy that was sent to me annonymously from somewhere in Brumm. With the attached note saying;
"Heres a snap of that fraudster, mdn. It was taken at the entrance to the 1998 Macclesfield Womens Institute Charity fund raiser bash, in aid of the Paraplegic Swiss Deep Sea Fishermens refuge (to which mdn claims he is a patron). Mdn was invited as guest of honour due to the fact that he was an Ex Brigadier General in the Lichtenstein Para Commandos, Special Forces from 1936 to 1987. As you can imagine, he's let himself go since this picture was taken and has also got a 'Bobby Charlton' comb over now.
He spent several hours at the WI bash attempting to slip a crippler to an old disabled woman who happened to be my grandmother. His claims ranged from fanciful to totally outrageous.
The real givaway was his claim to be leader of an all girls marching band from Pontefract who had to parachute in to deepest Siberia and conduct a covert 'op' on the worlds top Badminton players who happened to be holding a winter training camp 'somewhere in Russia'. He also claimed to be the inventor of the internet and advised on the Icelandic space programme.
