THE WAR 'HERO' WHO WEARS FAKE MEDALS AND DUPES HIS COLLEAGUES

Here is McIlwraith's entry as it appeared:

Captain Sir Alan Mcilwraith, KBE, DSO, MC (born 03 March 1978) is a British army Officer, currently serving with the Scottish TA. Capt McIlwraith is known throughout the military world as a man that can get things done and thought of as a hero that the UK and NATO can look to in times of trouble. McIlwraith's father was an engineer. Mcilwraith went to Shawlands Academy. In 1994 he went to Glasgow University. Mcilwraith was commissioned into the Parachute Regiment aged 19 finishing top in his class at Sandhurst Military Academy, specialising in the threat from the terrorism. Serving in Ireland, he spent two years commanding a parachute company in Northeren Ireland, rising to become the 2nd in command of 2 Para from March 2001 to Feb 2005. In 2000s, Mcilwraith served in the NATO chain of command as an advisor to the Supreme Allied Commander Europe, General Wesley Clark. He is best known for risking his own life to protect that of his men for this action he as awarded DSO. He was also badly injured protecting a young woman from an angry mob. Without any weapons to hand, he placed himself between the young woman and mob this act of heroism made him a hit within the political world.

Its linking okay for me.

Why him in particular? Any new developments on this loon?
No I was just reading through Arrsepedia having a chuckle at Baron Castleshortt and thought I'd have a look at him again.

Wikipedia seems to have some updates from last year...

In June 2009, Mcilwraith received fresh coverage in the Daily Record, which reported that he had been passing himself off as a millionaire property tycoon and charity worker to students at Strathclyde University. The paper also claimed that Mcilwraith had asked some students for disclosure documents and taken their National Insurance numbers and other details after duping them into filling in recruitment forms.
When a journalist from the Record met Mcilwraith at Glasgow Central Station, he was wearing "striking blue" contact lenses. Mcilwraith claimed he was working for an agency that housed asylum seekers, denied passing himself off as a student and said that the stories of his latest tall tales had come from students getting confused after too many drinks. He stated: "I have been trying to recruit people for the company I work for but I have not been trying to do anything other than help. It's true I asked one girl about getting a disclosure but I was genuinely trying to help her along too."
