This week on We Are The Ones We’ve Been Waiting For, CCN Hostess Eilish De Avalon interviews Australian Military Whistleblower Gordon Dunn, who blows the lid off the rampant sex abuse and child sex trafficking that occurs within ranks of the Australian military establishment that goes all the way to the top.
Earlier this year, a person from Geelong – who is a member of Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) travelled across 4 states to kill Gordon and his son, but despite these attempts he is bravely coming forward to testify against the system that has enabled, encouraged, participated and invested in sex abuse, child trafficking, paedophilia, rape, torture, murder and more. Mr Dunn exposes the State and Federal Governments who have been involved in an insidious Peadophile ring and Australian Taxpayers have been funding it for the rich and Politicians.
Mr Dunn walked head on into a major peadophile ring that has them hoping mad – because he would not drop it – he has signed documents of senior Goverment employee’ who has signed the documents admitting that they are raping children and openly killing people to prevent it from being known.
Mr Dunn shares with CCN viewers the truth of the Major Political Parties in Australia the Australian Labour Party (ALP) / Liberal-National Party Coalition (LNP) and the Greens who are covering up child sex trafficking in Australia.
To All Former Colleagues – Mr Dunn will share with you all the Type of person that are within the Queensland Ambulance Service (QAS) Management team in Far North Queensland and the QAS in General – to date he said nothing publicly – but has endured the lies that have been perpetauted by the Queensland Health – and the worst is it was that there a person who have been identified that have identified as members and organizers of the most horrific crimes – Raping and Child Sex Trafficking – That is correct and here is the proof – see for yourselves.
Mr Dunn was a Paramedic in Queensland and even a Judge in Court admitted that he told the truth – The Government had to destroy his reputation to stop – but it has fueled his anger and determination to get justice for these women and children.
Mr Dunn said: “For those who were in the Far North Queensland and knew this was going on and never said anything – you have to live with your conscious decisions that have affected 1000’s of children who have been raped.”
Queensland youth sex abuse ‘out of the shadows’: Youth sexual abuse and child prostitution in Queensland’s indigenous communities must be discussed publicly with the same openness applied to domestic violence, the state government says.
After 37 years and multiple family members serving in the QAST / QASB around the state of Qld – we have truly forgotten our integrity and our Colleagues
The scandals Mr Dunn found even reaches Australian Governor General Peter Cosgrove
Mr Dunn openly states that he was an Inner Guard Commander Mark Master Freemason of the Tropical Mark Lodge and the Senior Deakin of the Australian Imperial Forces Lodge and the reason he’s telling viewers this is because this is seated within Freemasonary and was derived from King Henry wanting to marry and sire a male child. It was taken from the original Pagan Religons and given a twist with the sick perversion of the lust of children – The first of this was set up in the Celtic Kingdom in Scotland – this was called the Scotish Rite and it still holds the action of Prima Nocta – from King Edward (Longshank) – This is why Ireland have had it against the English as this is what was happening in Ireland after the Andy Saville stuff / Rolph Harris – all members of the Scotish Rite and PIE Members – this first made it’s way to Australia in the 70’s by the following families Gunthorpes, Loverridges , Buicks, Tennents Sloanes, these are all Vietnam veterans and police officers and prison guards – these came to Australia and established the Imperial services lodge in Sydney under the direct administration of the Adelaide 75th lodge which is Patriarched by Prince Edward
(Accused of Raping a 16 year old girl in the USA- he is also the current raining World Grand Worshipful Master of Freemasonary) – these small clips show about the PIE in England
They openly advertised this in the Playboy and Penthouse magazine – and it was in the public view.
Of these families the Gunthorpes and Loveridges moved to Brisbane and established the same as the Sydney lodges and then onto Townsville – these lodges have been the guiding influences as to how the establishment of the the states health system – notice that Australia’s state health system is now exactly the same as Londons’ and we share a equal knowledge transfer and staff exchange – it is so that the PIE members can and do gain axccess to everyone’s children the selector rich or public officer – looks at a picture of a child they like then they go and get them and place them in a house for their selector to do as they please. In Mossman far north Queensland this was occurring at a residential house in a small suburn called Cooma Beach, however this was not to be easily achieved as locals were awakening to this – so they moved the location and started to use a resort called the White Cockatoo and they shut this down and opened this up as a swingers resort for 2 weeks a year twice a year.
The White Cockatoo in Mossman north of Port Douglas up for sale https://www.tourismportdouglas.com.au/White-Cockatoo-up-for-sale.3521.0.html
Jan 13, 2010 – The three star White Cockatoo is a traditional family motel through the winter … one of the most famous nudist and swingers resorts in Australia.
Mar 14, 2009 – Tony Fox who manages the White Cockatoo Motel (he calls it a ‘resort’), … sex and swingers parties that the Mossman motel proudly claimed …
Sex orgies return to ‘hedonistic’ nude resort at Mossman …
A quick Google search will give readers the idea, there’s many articles about this notorious place that wasn’t just for nudists and swingers but for paedophiles too.
Gordon Dunn alleges the Queensland Ambulance Station Manager stole front line Ambulance emergency drugs that in the wrong hands were date rape drugs that caused hypnosis, amnesia and anesthesia. This is how Gordon Dunn got to become aware of it – he was a Paramedic and originally came from this town – he returned to live and work there only to be advised of the above – he was concerned that this was going on and that the Station Manager of the Ambulance Station was directly involved in this – Mr Dunn approached him directly and he acknowledged that this was said – that was when he turned nasty and he made multiple attempts on Mr Dunn’s life- cutting brakelines on his car etc – this just fueled the fire as the Ambulance Service were doing nothing and this behaviour was bad.
So he looked into it further – he found that there was significant anomalies with the station drug register – there where 1000’s of ampules of Midazlom and Ketamine missing – these are top shelf drugs used in Date Rape – they induce amnesia and hypnosis and make you want to have sex openly and one cannot control oneself at all – The Manager tried to get Mr Dunn to sign this, he refused as in comparison Townsville he worked for 5 years they had the highest work rate of emergencies in Queensland and yet after 5 years he used these drugs once only – then in a town of 3000 people we used over 1000 a month; Mr Dunn pushed this to the top and nothing happened until he went on holidays there were death threats that if this man returned they would kill him – he was asked to come in from leave on the 15th of Jan 2010 and give a statement about the events the Ethical standards Unit who was being managed at the time was a relieving officer by the name of Hayden Lenz – after a 5 hour meeting Mr Dunn asked him why didn’t they act when he asked them to originally – they told him flat out when people make that many complaints they simple ignore them – Mr Dunn asked: even when it is rape of children? – they laughed at him – he never thought any more of this until the Elders told him the actions of the Senior Managers in the Ambulance service – they sent these documents initially acknowledging and admitting that this man did the acts of Rape of minors and that he deliberately withheld treatments of patients that resulted in the deaths of people to prevent the release of this to the public.
This is the original letter that he speaks of not all of these victims were being asked to come forward and they did in Feb 2010. It was then that the ESU had realised this was serious and bad they went back to Brisbane and spoke with the Crime Misconduct Commission – they returned in late Aug 2010. The CMC had instructed the ESU Hayden Lenz to collect statements to charge the managers with rape. They gathered the statements and returned to Brisbane and that is when they back briefed the Ambulance Service Commissioner on what was going to happen. Then all of a sudden on the 2 of Sep 2010 a man calling himself Bill Hobson rang the Commissioner of the Ambulance Service and threatened to destroy Mr Dunn’s life and career. When the QAS knew after they had enquired in Apr 2010 about medals he was wearing – that he had done nothing wrong – then a person rang claiming to have that very report the QAS had been given in Strictest confidence from the Defence Department. The only place that was given a copy of this was the Station Manager of the Mossman Ambulance Station who have the telecommunications records – it is from here that the real deceit starts and shows itself. Mr Dunn had no idea this was happening at all and he would not know about this until Sep 2013 – Mr Bill Hobson lived through with his threat – and the interesting part is that he left a trail that was followed back to the Australian Imperial Forces Lodges. Mr Bill Hobson is a real person – but currently teaches how to do intelligence in the field – he cannot speak – as this is Treason and has been confirmed that he did not – the person who is behind this website is a man called Mr Keith Joseph Tennet, who was dishonourably discharged from the Army in Dec 1978 after he lured his best mate and his mates family to the Sergeants’ mess in Townsville to rape and sodomise their 9 year old son.
There was a mutiny on the horizon due to current Governor General Peter Cosgrove’s leadership, Mr Dunn has all the records of this and the posting orders
-it was soon after this Peter Cosgrove was recruited into PIE and along with Ern Marshall, Gary Sloane, Robert Buick, Lee O’Neill, Gregory Marhiene – this was the start and has grown with members like Ralph Blewett joining and is the current reigning co ordinator of the ASIO Pacific network – this is also proven when (ex-Australian Prime Minister) Julia Gillard announced the Royal Commission into Child Sex Abuse that Mr Ralph Blewett came back to Australia under his own self steam to denounce Julia Gillard – however it is not widely known that he is the one who very heavily connected to Special Forces in Australia who are under direction to do the above: abduct kids and supply them from all over the world.
Mr Dunn even has Governor General Peter Cosgrove’s military history – how he was even sacked as platoon commander and sent to Vang Tau were he meet Keith Tennent.
Just like in the character assassination of REAL Navy Seal 9 member William Brockbrader’s defamation by Don Shipley the BUDS trainer and “fake navy seal hunter” Troll, Australia also has an equivalent website that defames both real crooks and innocent personnel that it has decided to hate. http://www.anzmi.net is the troll site designed to destroy the lives of any veterans who wake up and denounce the military or who don’t toe the line for whatever reason. This is a deliberate disinfo site and has both real cases of fake soldier impostors as well as real soldiers who they like to destroy because they’ve done something disagreeable.
The sordid history of the Australian military very much resembles the takes within the US Department of Defence Personnel. Here is a interview with the Director of the USA Navy Intelligence of the Whole Naval Defence of America – This woman along with 13 other wives have spoken out and have produced pictures to validate their story and these pictures have been authenticated

UK Government EXPOSED We are Anonymous. We do not Forgive We do not Forget. Expect us! ANONYMOUS HEADQUARTERS: http://AnonHQ.com
Now the following has occurred: this has been pushed to the Highest in Australia and Senator Heffnerman released last year that the Australian Federal Police (AFP) completed a investigation into 27 politicians and they are confirmed peaddophiles and nothing has been done and they are membersof this group – the likes of Brendan Nelson –
who is a very close friend of the High Commissioner in Canada and frequents Canada and the UK High Commissioner who has been accused of rapeing and murdering children – yet he still presides in his current position and nothing is done.
Mr Dunn’s story then goes to Peter Cosgrove who he alleges raped a army cadet and paid them $800,000 to be quiet – also Peter Cosgrove as the Chief of the Defence changed Mr Keith Tennents Dishonorable Discharge of raping a 9 year old boy to Honoarable – the Minister for Defence at the time was Mr Brenden Nelsen and Bruce Bilson who use the allias of Horatio ful of Mouth and Bilson Horses mouth – have emails to prove this
Now how this is all linked in is John Howard whose family owns farms in Papua – organised offshore proscessing of boat people – as there is now proof of the child sex abuse here and in Papua – as it is known that the PM indulges in children especially boys – it was in 2007 / 08 Kevin Rudd legislated this –
at the very same time Mrs Rudd was having an affair with the Assitant of the Secretary of Department of Veterans Affairs – Mr Carmody. The secretary Mr Campbell who is a founding member of the PIE in Vang Tau, suddenly retires and then Mr Carmody and Mrs Rudd are ordered to repay 1100 dollars in money for illegal use of taxpayer funded phones and money in sext messages – now it has also been found that since 1994 there has been $5 Billion a year going missing from the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) Budget – to fund a orphanage in Vang Tau – that is being run by a man known as Ern Marshall who fled Ballart in Victoria to avoid charges of child sex abuse – Police officer in Ballarat recently charged they originally left Australia in 1994 the Police Officer was sent back to Australia and stayed yet Ern Marshall couldn’t because he would go to jail as to many people knew what he had done –
Now in a example of all of this – is the Hines twins: they were charged for impersonating a veteran which it is illegal to do – http://www.brisbanetimes.com.au/queensland/twins-accused-of-impersonating-war-veterans-face-court-20121010-27cc6.html but notice how the first brother was public – the second brother was a member of this ANZMI group which is the front for PIE – the Police went in and needed away to bring him out so he could tell them about the child sex trafficking that was in Queensland – That Mr Dunn had discovered.
Now after doing all this – Mr Dunn has found out that the Queensland Government people Kevin Gunthorpe who had his Niece who works in the Department of Veterans Affairs in Brisbane illegal accessed his medical records from the Defence and gave them to her Uncle who is a Senior Freemason of the 33rd degree and a son of a Blackhat who openly admitted in the Lodge he did this along with Lyle Mcgrath who is a founding member of PIE in Vang Tau – I have recieed public apologies for this and now the Queensland Government is saying that this never existed, which he will show proof that it in fact, does.
Mr Dunn will reveal documents which are emails that the ESU officers sent to the elders outling their itinerary and when they will be seeing the Victims and they said this never happened even now they have said via the Treasurer of Queensland that there was a investigation since 2008 and they didn’t tell anyone – yet when the government were summonsed to produce this stuff in 2013 they said this did not exist.
Then Mr Dunn will also go into the Freemasonic-Mormon Connection: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ltsbkd-_Hk
Mr Dunn will then go into detail about our incoming new Senator, former anti-paedophile activist and journalist Derryn Hinch, which is a fall from grace so many of his avid supports may be shocked to hear about. Here’s a teaser article about the story on mainstream news which he will expand upon. http://www.news.com.au/finance/work/leaders/what-happened-between-incoming-senator-derryn-hinch-and-the-teen-model-he-met-at-molly-meldrums-place/news-story/505505dbd53858e72b0c8d13918bb185

Subject: Fw: a perceived conflict of interest and criminal concerns re the Australian War Memorial (AWM)
Mr. Gower manager of the AWM and the statute responsible Minister Alan Griffin
Reference: a perceived conflict of interest and criminal concerns re the AWM
Thank you for not responding to my correspondence of last night, obviously you do not seem to regard my “questions” with the same priority as your mates King and Tennent. I have deliberately co addressed this to Minister Griffin in that by now he and Ministers Faulkner, Combet, Smith and Gray should have on-forwarded their concerns re some perceived war crimes criminal concerns of the AWM management not doing what it should reasonably be expected to have done. Presumably the AFP in conjunction with AG will contact you and Mr Cosgrove in dues process. If the statute minister has the political balls that he portends, then he may invite you both to stand aside until these international and national criminal matters are clarified.
Now that you have had time to ponder the original 7 questions, here are some supplementary and related questions that you may care to promulgate with your mates Tennent and King.
Q. why was Mr. Cosgrove transferred from 9 RAR after 39 days?
Q. was there any concern perceptions that Mr Cosgrove may have been at risk from the soldier who murdered Bob Convery?
Q. who were the ADF senior officers involved in the unusual locational musical chairs of Mr Cosgrove?
Q. were these unusual “arrangements” made for ANY other RAR officer during the Vietnam War?
Q. where was Mr. Cosgrove physically sleeping when he was called by his company commander to the Convery Murder site?
Q. Mr Gower, what is your relationship with King and Tennent?
Q. Mr Gower, are your 2 mates currently under criminal investigation?
I presume that you are astute enough to realize that these questions do not reflect on Mr Cosgrove or his integrity, the assumption must be that he was just another expendable grunt junior officer being “facilitated by several senior officers for their reasons”? I trust that you can explain this reality to your retarded mate who seems to be entranced as a high command dutiful arse-kisser. This may be difficult for him in that he seems to be incapable of comprehending that to ask a question is not an accusation, it is a democratic and lawful right that real ANZACs have fought and died for.
Some Selected Supplementary questions
– Why did you select Tennent to be an awm information promulgator re correspondence to ANZAC Don Tate dated 7 July 2009?
– Is this the same Tennent who is an admitted criminal child rapist?
– Is this the same Tennent who with the formal self purported support of the Rockhampton rsl president, your other mate King, conspired with the then chief of army to falsify his service records, specifically his reason for discharge?
– Is this same former statute officer now the chairperson of the awm board of directors?
– If so, when he was approached to falsify official records, did he advise the AFP of this criminal overture?
– If not why not?
– Have you explained to King that when he communicates with you in your capacity as manager of the awm and in his advertised capacity as an rsl executive, it is NOT a private and or personal communication and all such communications are discoverable at law?
– Is this King the same King who has perceivably electronically criminally stalked and defamed other known mentally ill ANZACs?
– Is this the same King who has purportedly conspired with Tennent to commit criminal statute fraud?
Allan Stanton’s book “Before I Forget” (Sid Harta Publishers). Stanton was the driver of Captain Tom Arrowsmith’s APC at Thua Tic
Purported Extract “The Arrow (Capt Tom Arrowsmith), like me, did not want the bodies in the cargo area of our carrier, so it was decided to take five bodies, tie them together and hang them by their ankles from the back of the carrier for the trip back to Xuyen Moc.
“Before leaving the ambush site we had one further task to perform- dispose of the other six bodies. We dragged them to an old bomb crater just to the side of the old gates of the deserted village. Along with the bodies were placed explosives, hand grenades, a number of Claymore mines, a few gallons of petrol and a long fuse cord.
“The fuse was lit and about five minutes later the explosion of our crude burial could be heard.
……. (After the second VC attack on the way to Xuyen Moc)…
“There was now one more task to perform before our return to the Dat- take the bodies of the five VC still hanging from the back of Two-Alpha-Zero ( Stanton ‘s APC) into the village square. I knew they were still there by the shocked looks on the faces of the locals as we drove through the village……
“The bodies were cut from the carrier and left with the village chief to do what he wanted with them.”
In view of the external confirmation by a cavalry primary witness Allan Stanton the driver of the commanders armoured vehicle, These questions appear to be relevant of and for the AWM management in addition to the appropriate statute Ministers and other Officers.
– Was there a related denial by successive conservative governments and some ultra conservative ex service executives that ANZAC Jim Riddle ever existed let alone served as combat commander in Vietnam because of the “embarrassment aka war crimes” and their cover-up that may evolve?
– Why was the combat force that he commanded raised at the specific direction of the then Australian commander Brigadier Pearson?
– Was this because of some direct and or indirect assertions and imputations by Pearson that some of our excellent SAS Lads were reluctant to engage the enemy in combat?
– What were the details contained in the official signals between the then Army Commander General Daley and Brigadier Pearson re these matters?
– Will the AWM now concede that there was an “Engineers’ burial” undertaken by some elements of the Australian Force at Thua Tic, which involved dragging some of the enemy dead into a hole and blowing them up with explosives?
– Will the AWM now concede that a number of enemy dead were attached to at least one APC by their ankles and then dragged/slung a considerable distance behind this vehicle to Xuyen Moc where they were then placed on public display?
– Will the AWM now provide copies of all the associated photographs taken by Denis Gibbons, or any other photographer, of these and other related events of this operation?
– Was this the motivation of the Army High Command that overrode the original deserved Military Cross for the then Captain Arrowsmith?
– Who were the ex high command officers who renominated Arrowsmith as a post war upgraded decoration if they thought the dust had settled on these alleged war crime concerns raised by General Daley?
– When did the current statute management of the Australian War Memorial become aware of this evidenced war crime?
– Why didn’t the current statute management of the AWM report these evidenced war crimes to the relevant ministers and AFP when they first became aware of this conduct?
– Has the Chief of the Army advised the AFP that there appears to be an unauthorized destruction and or misappropriation of official records, namely the “Pound Inquiry” as a deliberate attempt to pervert the course of justice re a known and evidenced war crime?
– Is the AWM management aware of and or have some evidenced allegations of other Vietnam war crimes?
– Have some former and current RSL, VVFA and TPI executives become aware of these and other alleged war crimes?
– Have these entities and or their ‘servants” become deliberate accessories after the fact in endorsing the intimidation and electronic stalking of some DVA diagnosed mentally ill veterans who have attempted to expose these deliberate high command and political criminal deceits?
– Do any current and or former AFP executives have any knowledge and or suspicions of other deliberate covered up war crimes and or criminal matters that they may have been directed to not be investigated?
– Do any current and or former AFP executives have any knowledge of other criminal and or treasonous allegations and or evidence suppression?
– What evidence and or allegations that the Howard government was involved in any of these or related deliberate criminal cover-ups exists?
– If so, why hasn’t it been made available to the statute authorities for investigation?
– If so, are any of the high command generals during this period known to have facilitated these criminal acts of fraud and misrepresentation by failing to act per statute Australian Rule of Law?
– If so, who are the identified ex generals who have not enforced Australian Rule of Law per their statute duties?
– Have the AWM board of directors been advised formally or informally of these alleged arguable criminal actions and cover-ups?
– If so, have they initiated a criminal complaint to the AFP, primarily ex general Pearson and his participating staff officers and field commanders?
– If not, why not?
– If so, is there a perceivable criminal case to review the decoration awarded to Pearson purportedly for his war service integrity per his citation?
– Does his citation in any way reflect the battles of Thua Tic?
– If so, does this statutory declaration citation misrepresent the facts?
– Which officers authored the citation that was subsequently endorsed by the then high command?
– Has the AWM statute accountable Minister advised the Prime minister that pending the outcome of a full and transparent independent investigation, that the AWM directors and senior management should be stood aside because of an arguable and perceived conflict of interest and potentially as accessories after the fact in some matters and accessories before the fact in some other recent acts?
– Is there any causal link in these matters that one of the reasons financial aid to the people of Vietnam is still maintained is an oblique buyoff so that they will not initiate international war crimes cases against Australians? More specifically, some of the high command for its selective editing of official records OR is it a simple matter of AID to Vietnam so they don’t hang the Australian Vietnamese criminal drug smuggling maggots they catch as they do for other foreign drug smuggling criminals?
– Will the Prime Minister Kevin Rudd initiate a Royal Commission into these and related matters?
Mr Gower, pending the formal resolution of the AWM specific questions above, in the “good interests of the Australia War Memorial, the Nation and the ANZAC Community”, will you and Mr Cosgrove stand aside?

Letter from Senater Warren Snowden – Former Defence Minister – denouncing ANZMI as a Goverment department
Vietnam Veteran who proved that the Australian War Museum was changing records
Deceit, Duplicity and Dishonesty
Recently, I requested, and received, copies of some of the documents and correspondence held by the Australian War Memorial relating to the disappearance of all trace of the 2nd D&E Platoon from the histories of the Vietnam War.
As you would be aware, this is a highly contentious matter. Simply, the AWM and the national historian have refused to accept that such a platoon existed by that name- but offset our outrage by trotting out the lame explanation that they accept our ‘ad hoc’ platoon existed and that its activities would be covered in the historian’s final volume, Fighting to the Finish.
That, in no way, suffices for what has been a simple corruption of records which has affected the lives of every man who fought in that platoon and who were involved in the atrocities of May 30th 1969 which is at the heart of the matter.
The situation prevails where the government formally accepts that the 2nd D&E Platoon existed- but the Australian War Memorial and the Department of Veteran Affairs don’t.
(You would be aware of the formal statement to that effect made by the Hon Dr Mike Kelly MP on May 29th 2008. See Attachment 1)
This has left us in an administrative no-mans’ land- and forces us to continue the battle to validate the platoon, and our own service histories.
The material I received from the AWM was minimal. Some was redacted. More contentious items and the names of many who have been involved in this matter at high levels within the Defence Force and outside have not been released. I am informed that I have to apply for the balance of the documentation I require by FOI.
I have taken that step.
However, from the documentation I did receive to date, and analysed below is clear evidence of deceitful and duplicitous dealing by officers of the AWM and the historian. At worst, there is demonstrable corruption of the facts involved.
Derogatory Comments and Opinions as to Character from Public Servants
The first point I wish to make is that the AWM officers have deliberately attempted to paint those of us directly involved in this matter in the worst light possible, using terms such as ‘serial complainants’ and/ or ‘irrational’ etc.
In that way, it taints our reputations and character and allows them to get away with treating us with contempt. It is also a method of deflecting questions by journalists.
I want to make it clear that most of us pursuing the matter were achievers one way or another. I became a High School English/History teacher, invented a board game, and am the author of five books. I also received the Australian Sports Medal for services to the community in the area of sport for more than 30 years, and was responsible for the construction of a Vietnam Veterans Commemorative Walk around a local sporting complex in Albion Park Rail- despite a debilitating disability. Richard Bigwood was a senior executive of Woolworths; Edward Colmer was a federal police officer, and so on.
To be disregarded or dismissed as lunatics for pursuing a matter that we all knew to have occurred, regardless of whether or not it is supported by military documentation, is to show total disregard for the war service we gave this country.
Too often, we have been the victim of men and women who know nothing about the rigors and horrors of jungle warfare and its effects on those of us who have endured it. Public servants like Helen Withnell and Karen Ely and their underlings have adopted that smug, public servant attitude that suggests that somehow they are intellectually superior to us ex-soldiers, and feel they have the right to make assumptions and judgements about us.
I often wonder how an Ashley Ekins would have fared with a hip shot off by high velocity bullet and having spent two years of his life hospitalised.
No- the dismissive attitude of the servants of the AWM is the first thing that must be addressed. That, and the fact that the character assessments made by opinionated public servants results in undermining the validity of our case.
The Corrupt and Deceitful Actions of AWM staff
For many years, we have suspected that a person, or persons, have been involved in the corruption of documents relating to this matter (and to many other contentious Defence matters) but found it impossible to break through the walls of the bureaucracies.
But in going through the material I just received from the AWM, I have located instances where AWM officers and the historian have deliberately obfuscated facts; misled Ministers; ignored evidence; and made incorrect conclusions.
I am also of the opinion that there may well have been duplicity involving other departments within Defence, including the Army History Unit.
My Service in the 9th Battalion
In 1997 or so, the Australian Army conceded that I had in fact, served with the 9th Battalion after denying it for 28 years- and updated the Nominal Roll to reflect that fact.
Along the way, I had to contend with a deliberate corruption of my service records. The first example of this was by an officer from Central Army Records Office (CARO) who declared that I had only served in Vietnam with one unit- the 4th Battalion from January 1968- August 1969. That officer was a D. Gibson. (See Attachment 2)
But there is no doubt that I was wounded in July 1969 whilst serving with the 9th Battalion. I refer to the Signal sent from Vietnam to my father on the night I was wounded. (That Signal is Attachment 3)
The question to be asked here is- why would a senior officer of Defence issue a corrupt document which falsifies my war service?
The 2nd D&E Platoon Matter
In respect of this matter, I contend that there has been CRIMINAL INTERFERENCE WITH DEPARTMENT OF DEFENCE RECORDS.
I have, for many years, asserted that certain officers of the AWM have provided the biggest stumbling blocks to the recognition of that platoon, and have used a variety of means to justify its position. I also suspect that certain officers of the Army History Unit are also parties to the interference of Defence records.
I was particularly interested to find that the following individuals had some input into the ‘investigations’ being conducted by the AWM staff (and the historian, Ashley Ekins) into the 2nd D&E Platoon matter.
They are: Roger Lee and Bill Houston of the Army History Unit; John Tilbrook and Peter Langford of Writeways (a company that investigates veterans on behalf of DVA); Robert Buick who runs the website AVM (specifically set up to vilify veterans); and the paedophile, Keith Tennent (who also administers a website that vilifies veterans).
Now, like all things I guess, I have a sneaking suspicion that money is at the root of what appears to be a conspiracy to corrupt records. Allow me the opportunity to make a case here for how individuals may have been caught up in, or been willing participants in the corruption of defence documents:
There were stepping stones involved…
– I note that the Signals that relate to the murders of unarmed, wounded soldiers at Long Tan (in which Bob Buick was involved) have ‘disappeared’ from Defence and AWM records
– That Bob Buick was never charged with murder despite a clear statement by barrister James Fergusson Thomson that he should have been
– That sexual assault charges against Keith Tennent (who anally raped a nine year old boy) were downgraded after the intervention of senior army officers
– Buick and Tennent then became defenders of the ADF and set up web sites to vilify any veteran who dared criticise the military
– The Dept of Veteran Affairs pays Writeways to conduct its investigations (and I suspect there are considerable sums involved and that in order to secure ‘information’, Writeways pays handsomely for it)
– And since the Dept of Veteran Affairs hand out large sums of money to various veteran ESO’s for the welfare of veterans- there is no doubt that there is widespread rorting of that money going on, and apparently, little or no accountability in place (one ESO ‘leader’, Barry Billing, allegedly stole up to $100,000 of DVA money in NSW alone)……..similarly, money is being siphoned off by individuals and used to facilitate the corruption processes……
If I was an investigator, I would be looking for large deposits into bank accounts of the men named above- and where any exist, hard questions should be asked.
(I particularly note that Keith Tennent is supposedly a TPI pensioner, yet works part-time as an accountant in Rockhampton; Bob Buick runs an extensive, sophisticated internet network that IT experts tell me would cost tens of thousands of dollars to set up and maintain……an investigator might start looking at his finances. And finally, the Vietnam Veterans Federation in Nerang might be a good starting point to examine fraudulent or misappropriation of large amounts of money).
Having said that, allow me to put a hypothetical before you:
Person A summons documents from Defence that need to be altered or modified for some reason (he is able to do that); he passes them on to Person B (at Writeways?); Person B then passes them on to Person C who has a unique relationship with Bob Buick; Buick then passes them onto a person of dubious character (Person D) with an expertise in forgery; the document is forged- and sent back to Bob Buick; Buick sends it back to Person C; Person C sends it on to Person B; Person B sends it back to Person A who places the amended document back into Defence files where it now sits as an apparently legitimate Defence document- and should the veteran depend on that document to pursue a particular matter, that amended document is used to destroy his credibility, and his case.
But- that was just a hypothetical.
Nevertheless, I will ensure that other agencies are also aware of it.
PARTICULAR INSTANCES OF CORRUPT DEALINGS BY AWM OFFICERS
RELATING TO MY MATTERS
I will now specifically refer to instances where I believe AWM officers and the historian have deliberately compromised investigations into the 2nd D&E Platoon matter:
1. In 2011, Senator Nick Xenophon requested of the historian, Ashley Ekins some answers on notice for a Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Feb 2011. Given that the historian is supposedly an independent and unbiased voice within the AWM, a letter from Ekins to Karen Ely (Executive Officer of the AWM (24/3/2011) indicates that Ekins is far from being independent. Ekins states that instead of responding personally to the Senator, he had sent his answers to the Director, Steve Gower first, and then Gower had made ‘comments and suggestions’ to those answers which Ekins incorporated into his answers. (Attachment 5)
2. In 2007, the Hon Bruce Billson MP (Minister for Defence) made enquiries of the AWM in relation to this matter on my behalf. The letter sent by Billson to me and other veterans was supposedly the result of his investigations. However, an email from Ashley Ekins to Helen Withnell (10/8/2007) makes it clear that it was the AWM that had actually ‘prepared’ that letter for Billson to sign. In fact a ‘team’ had worked on it including a Roger Lee of the Army History Unit and a Philip Connole of DVA. That collective effort was primarily based on information that Ashley Ekins had supplied to the group. In other words, the AWM simply manufactured a response to Billson that outlined their perspective and best served their interests in the matter, which Billson accepted. (Attachment 6)
3. An email sent from Ashley Ekins to Craig Tibbitts (13/5/2007) states that ‘ Capt Tom Arrowsmith has no recollection of the men (being called the 2nd D&E Platoon…)’ This indicates that Ekins had spoken with Arrowsmith in some form. However, in a letter from the Hon Dr Mike Kelly MP to the Hon Jennie George MP (22/4/2008), Kelly advises that the AWM researchers had been ‘unable to contact the retired officer who commanded 2Troop (Arrowsmith). This is clearly duplicitous. (Attachment 7)
4. In 2008, Major George Pratt (the Officer Commanding HQ Company 1ATF) stated publicly that he had ‘formed the 2nd D&E Platoon’. A month or so later, Maj Barry Parkin publicly stated that he had been called in from 4RAR to ‘train up and lead the 2nd D&E Platoon’. These are senior, former army officers. Barry Parkin went on to add that he had often received requests from advocates seeking information from veterans about the 2nd D&E Platoon and had always advised that the platoon had existed by that name. I provided that information to Ekins. Ekins replied to me (18/9/07) that this ‘strengthens your case’. But he simply forwarded the new information to Gower. Gower made no comment. But Ekins, in an email (29/1/2008) to the Army History Unit, essentially dismisses those statements by the two former ADF officers saying, that ‘some of the claims can be confirmed’ but that the rest is ‘opinions or assumptions that we cannot verify’. If a man states categorically that he ‘formed the 2nd D&E Platoon’ how can that possibly be interpreted as an ‘opinion or assumption’? Why would those two important statements by significant ex-ADF officers be so disregarded? Pratt and Parkin had nothing whatsoever to gain.
6. Further to the point above, in a letter from Ashley Ekins to Col Bill Houston of the Army History Unit (29/1/2008) Ekins states that Lt Barry Parkin is recorded on the Nominal Roll as only ever having served with the 1st Australian Reinforcement Unit. Ashley Ekins has deliberately misled the Army History Unit on this point, since the Nominal Roll clearly states that Parkin served in the 4th Battalion for about nine weeks (March to May 1969)! Why would he do that if not to taint Parkin’s reputation and discredit his assertions?
7. In an interview with Maj George Pratt conducted by Adam Rainford (Raining Films), Pratt apparently states again that he created the 2nd D&E Platoon- and according to Rainford made the explosive revelation that he had been ordered to do so by Brigadier C. Pearson (CO of the Task Force). There had been no Cabinet approval for this, so if true, it meant it had been done illegally- and a further explanation as to why all trace of the platoon had disappeared. It is imperative that despite the gravity of that revelation, you should note that no officer or historian of the AWM ever considered that acquiring that interview and actually watching it was an appropriate thing to do. If history is based on first-hand accounts, why has Maj Pratt’s voice been ignored? You should also note that to date, the AWM has still not interviewed Maj Pratt for his version of events- despite the fact that he was the man at the very heart of the contentions.
8. Investigative journalist, Frank walker spent a year investigating all aspects of the 2nd D&E Platoon matter. He spoke to many of the men involved; even travelled to England to speak with James Riddle (who led the platoon). He spoke with every key person involved in this matter- unlike Ashley Ekins or Steve Gower. Walker uncovered deceit and corruption of military records by Army officers. It is important to note that neither the historian Ashley Ekins nor the Director, Steve Gower gave Walker an interview. And after Walker’s book (Ghost Platoon) was published, Ashley Ekins attempted to degrade the book and the research conducted by Frank Walker. Ekins wrote that it was, ‘….riddled with factual errors and unfounded assumptions and interpretations’. He further asserted that key veterans ‘disassociated themselves from the book’, and lists them. This was disingenuous at best. What they wanted to ‘disassociate’ themselves from wasn’t the uncovering of the truth- but from the vitriol and slander that came our way. But most significantly, not only did Gower and Ekins refuse to be interviewed by Walker at the outset, they never communicated with him after his book came out to discuss, debate, or debunk Walker’s conclusions.
9. In a letter to James Massola of the Canberra Times concerning the ‘petrol money’ given to the three of us who attended a meeting with Gower and Ekins at the War Memorial, Leigh Harris of the AWM (30/7/2008) states that we were ‘provided with $100 as a mutually agreed travel allowance’. Ashley Ekins validates that in a document marked ‘08/2964’. But contrary to that, in an insigned page titled ‘Material for Director’s response to Don Tate, 7 July 2009’, the author states, ‘Tate accepted $250 and each of the other two veterans accepted $200.’ This contradiction is evidence of is a clumsy attempt to discredit me. And why would I have received more than any other man? (I actually think the figure as $150, but might be wrong. Regardless, I drove 480 kms in a return trip when petrol was $1.80 a litre, and Gower gave us ‘a little extra’ for meals’ What’s more, relating to accountability, one of those veterans who received money actually travelled to the Memorial as a passenger in my car!).
10. After a long battle, Col Bill Houston acknowledged that the 2nd D&E Platoon did exist in an email dated 11/3/2008. He stated: ‘We have established the existence of the platoon.’ It was an exciting milestone, and I made that public. Immediately, Bob Buick (who appears to have an inordinate amount of clout with the AHU and the AWM) contacted the AWM and made his feelings known to Houston. Within 20 minutes, Col Bill Houston was back-peddling and changed his tune. He apologetically, informed Buick, ‘I regret that one throwaway line in an email I was directed to send has caused further confusion and aggravated the problem by being quoted out of context….’. Even Defence officers cave in to the bully-boy, Buick.
11. In 1993, I donated my raw, colour movie film to the AWM in return for a tax writedown. It was assessed by two valuers for the Valuer-General’s Department (Graham Shirley and Dminic Case). I have been heavily criticised by a number of AWM public servants for asserting that the colour film was valued at $100,000. According to them, the films are only worth about $5,000. Ashley Ekins also involved himself in this debate for some reason, siding with the opinion of the staff. Yet, a statement by Graham Shirley (one of the valuers) states quite clearly: ‘90% of the material is judged to be of historical value’ and declared the value to be ‘$81,270’. But more significantly, it appears that the AWM staff do not really appreciate the value of that donation, despite only holding some 85 such films from all conflicts from Vietnam to Timor. And Antony Rudnicki wrote a glowing appreciation of the films, and their quality- stating that they were ‘virtually unique and reminded him of the best of Damien Parer’s work from World War 2.’
12. And to conclude, going back to my original point about deliberate corruption, the Hon Mike Kelly MP acknowledged the most damaging statement of all in a letter to the Hon Jennie George MP, 22/4/2008): ‘there are gaps in the documentary record….and that ‘HQ Company of 1st Australian Task Force did not keep War Diaries.’ That a significant unit within the Task Force apparently was the only unit that didn’t keep a day to day diary of its activities is beyond belief. It is inconceivable. More to the point- they have most likely been ‘lost’.

Veterans Against ANZMI – and this is a introduction into how hated this group is:
To Terry Westerway and Kevin Bovill,
Tate is a wounded veteran who served in the same fashion as we all did. He deserves respect for that. It also is entitles him to have is version and recollection of events. However we are also entitled not to agree with him. What I object to and I may also politely suggest you should object to is his reaction when someone disagrees with him.
(MOSELEY NEVER SERVED WITH ME; NOR ANYWHERE NEAR ME; NOR IN THE 2ND D&E PLATOON; NOR IN 9RAR. HE KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT ME. ANYONE (LIKES MOSELEY) WHO NEVER SERVED WITH ME HAS NO RIGHT TO MAKE ANY COMMENT ABOUT ANYTHING TO DO WITH MY SERVICE)
You are called a coward, a cunt, a cur or a paedophile etc. on NO evidence, he just makes up slanderous allegations as he goes along. He does this mostly behind people’s back but now he is coming unstuck because over time he has attacked so many personally that there is a significant and growing number of Veterans that keep each other informed of his latest defamatory comments.
NO- NOT ALL CALLED ANY SUCH THING. THE ONLY PERSON I’VE CALLED A ‘CUNT’ IS YOU MOSELEY BUT THEN, AS I SAID, I WOULDN’T HAVE BEEN THE FIRST ONE TO CALL YOU THAT. YOU HAVE HARRASSED ME FOR ALMOST A YEAR, INVOLVING MYSELF IN A MATTER (S) YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT- AND WHEN SET STRAIGHT BY OTHERS- IGNORED THEM. AS FOR ‘PAEDOPHILES’….THAT SPECIFOCALLY APPLIES TO KEITH TENNENT , AND AS YOU WOULD KNOW, IF YOU ASSOCIATE IN ANY WAY WITH ONE, IT IS FAIR TO SAY YOU ARE ONE……)
As recently as a few days ago he repeated that fellow members of his Platoon in 9 RAR were ” cowards then and cowards now”
(AGAIN…..A DISTORTION…I SAID AND REPEAT……WHEN ME AND TWO OTHERS WENT FORARD TO GIVE COVERING FIRE TO THE MEN OF THE FIRST SECTION OF MY PLATOON- THE OTHER THREE MEN OF MY SECTION STAYED BELOW THE KILLING FIELD. IT TOOK MEN FROM THE THIRD SECTION FROM MY PLATOON TO MOVE FOREWARD AND THE MEN OF Lt MIK MUMMER’S PLATOON…..GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT)
How gentlemen can you justify or excuse that.
Ask yourself why 99% of his former supporters for the recognition of the D&E Platoon now want nothing more to do with him. Maybe because they spent too much time with him and discovered the real Tate. By the way they are cowards now. Do not believe me? Go and ask them. I have.
(99% OF MY ‘FORMER SUPPORTERS’ YOU SAY? FIRST- YOU FOOL THERE WERE ONLY FIVE…….OUT OF THOSE FIVE, THREE HAVE CONTACTED ME RECENTLY (Lloyd-Thomas; Bigwood; and Enright…JIM RIDDLE LEFT ME A MESSAGE ON FACEBOOK SAYING WAS HIS ONLY TRUE FRIEND. WHO ARE THE OTHER 90%? …YOU LYING TOOL)
Tate says frequently that so and so support him when they do not, a very large number now. Do not believe me ? Go and ask those in 9 RAR and 4 RAR who he served with. I have.
(I SERVED WITH A SECTION IN 4RAR FOR A LITTLE OVER THREE MONTHS……..THE FOLLOWING MEMBERS WROTE ME SUPPORTING ME A YEAR OR SO AGO….FOLEY, MARGETTS, HOLBOROW, WINCHESTER, AND MORRISON (WHO LEFT THE PLATOON AFTER A WHILE, WITH RIDDLE)……..ONE OF THE MEN IS NOW DEAD…………SO WHO DON’T SUPPORT ME NOW?…..EITHER WHAT THEY SAID THEN WAS BULLSHIT, OR THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR TUNE, AND I SUGGEST THAT IF THEY HAVE CHANGED THEIR TUNE IT SAYS MORE ABOUT THEM THAN ME (I HAVE RETAINED THEIR COMMENTS FOR FUTURE USE)…….AS FOR 9RAR…….I SPENT JUST UNDER A MONTH WITH THEM, AND WOULDN’T KNOW ONE SINGLE MAN FROM THAT PLATOON….BUT TWO MEN I DO KNOW HAVE GIVEN THEIR SUPPORT IN WRITING……ANDY OCHITREE MM (WOUNDED IN THE SAME AMBUSH); AND BRIAN OSBORNE (THE PLATOON COMMANDER)……JOHN WALKER WAS WOUNDED WITH ME AND WOULDN’T SAY ANYTHING NEGATIVE; NOR WOULD DEREK NIXON-SMITH (ALSO WOUNDED)……SO AGAIN, MOSELEY, YOU TALK SHIT……)
This s the man who when he does not have an answer replies ” 4 RAR saw and did nothing” clearly insinuating we had no right to make any comment about his writings.
(I WAS REFERRING TO SPECIFIC INDIVIDUALS FROM 4RAR …LIKE YOU……MOSELEY, LET’S GET THIS FACT TRIGHT, YOU SPENT MORE TIME HIDING FROM THE WAR THAN BEING INVOLVED; YOU DID EVERYTHING YOU COULD TO ESCAPE THE WAR; YOU SAW VERY LITTLE ACTION (IF ANY…..? LET’S GO BACK TO THE 4RAR NARRATIVES TO SEE WHAT YOU DID….SFA)
Gentleman go and explain and justify that statement to the relatives of the 19 KIA or the scores who were wounded.
An example of truth and accuracy by Tate. He wrote that his first contact with the VC he was ” by myself” and that Avery’s book corroborated that fact. It did not. (YES IT DOES. PERSPECTIVES ALTER, AS YOU KNOW. I WAS DIRECTLY INVOLVED, AND AVERY’S STATEMENT VALIDATES WHAT I SAID. SO DO THE NARRATIVES). The next version was that it was his section that was in the contact and that members from 4RAR would support him. I did and guess what, they did not. What’s he do then, denigrates their character, his own nominated witnesses. He then has the hide to tell others that they still do support him.
(HOLBOROW KILLED THE VC WHO BOLTED TO THE SIDE OF THE PLATOON- FACT. HOW DID HE GET INTO A POSITION TO KILL THAT VC- BECAUSE THE CONTACT HAD ALREADY BEGAN, AND HE WAS IN A POSITION TO OPEN UP AS SOON AS HE SPOTTED HIM. AND THE REASON HE WAS IN THAT POSITION WAS BECAUSE I HD OPENED UP ON THEM….I DON’T REALLY CARE WHAT THE OTHERS FROM THAT SECTION SAY…..I COULD DISPUTE THEIR VERSION OF OTHER CONTACTS….EACH MAN HAS HIS OWN STORY…..ISN’T IT AMAZING THAT SOMETHING I HAD TOLD FOR 40 YEARS GETS VALIDATED BY AVERY…AND THEN MY OPPONENTS GO SCURRYING OFF FOR SOME OTHER EXPLANATION…..AND ONE THIG’S FOR SURE MOSELEY, NEITHER YOU NOR THAT LIST OF MAGGOTS ABOVEM WERE PRESENT….)
He has also stated publicly as part of his conspiracy theory that the Army deliberately altered or destroyed his records (FACT….AND EVIDENCE HAS BEEN PROVIDED AND ARE IN POSSESSION OF THE DART)……EXPLAIN WHY MY RECORDS STATE I WAS IN 4RAR FROM DECEMBER ’68 TO AUGUST 6
’69?….WHY DID CARO DISPUTE THAT I SERVED IN 9RAR? WHY DO THE RECORDS SHOW ALL 39 MEN FROM 4RAR GOING TO ‘6RAR’?…….GET YOUR FACTS RIGHT, ‘SUPERINENDENT’) , that the 4 RAR book left him off the Nominal Roll. (NEVER SAID ANY SUCH THING…..IDIOT. I SAID I HAD BEEN LEFT OFF THE NOMINAL ROLL AS HAVING SERVED WITH 9RAR……FIRSR EDITION. NOTHNG TO DO WITH 4RAR) I have a copy, he has a copy and again guess what, another lie.
I could go on forever but gentlemen I have his e mails, I have the e mails from those he claims that support him, I have a collection of his slander of just about every Military Unit in Australia he has posted on the Internet both here and in America. Politicians even are too polite to criticize their own country when overseas but not Tate.
That Gentleman why others object to Tate being supported by the Museum. I like you had respect for it and appreciated the job it was doing for the Veterans Community. (HAVE YOU EVER SUPPORTED IT, LIAR?)
Tate can publish what he likes, speak at as many libraries as he likes but Tate by his own words has become a lightening rod in the Veterans Community and my fear was and is that the Association between Tate and the Museum is bound to damage their reputation.
The CEO has stated that they are neutral and do not endorse what he has written. I am sure Tate does not see it that way and will shout from the rooftops by launching his book they validate what’s in it.
In regard to one of your recent defamatory remarks about me “being the most despised policeman by the NSW Police Force.”As luck would have it the President of the NSW Police Union was in Vung Tau was told about me and asked to meet me. We had a lengthy breakfast meeting this morning. Good luck with that made up piece of slander when it gets to Court.
(I THINK HERE ARE PLENTY OF NSW COPPERS WHO WOULD LIKE TO MEET YOU SOMEWHERE QUIET, MOSELEY)
FOR EVERYONE ELSE
As Tate has been escalating his defamatory comments about me, I advised him I would be seeking legal advice in regard to Defamation. His response from this best selling Author.
” If you do I will shoot you on the Court House steps” he will be visited by the NSW Police shortly to explain that one.
Think about it, that is always his reaction. Do not argue the merit of his position, just denigrate or threaten.
I would take a long hard look Gentlemen. Do not rely on Tate’s selected and edited out of context version of what other people he alleges say. Ask him for the complete version. If he states so and so said that, check that they do, more often than not they do not and even more often he gets an inch and turns it into a mile. Ask him what Arnold recently told him.
(MOSELEY..IF WHAT YOU HAVE WRTTEN ABOVE IS EVIDENCE OF YOUR INVESTIGATIVE SKILLS….THEN IT REFLECTS POOR;Y ON THE NSW POLICE SERVICE…..GOOD LUCK WITH LD ‘MATES’ COMING OUT TO SUPPORT YOU…IT’S A DIFFERENT WORLD NOW, MORON…..)
Enjoy the day.

I have visited the NVWM on PI twice and on both occasions was impressed with what they had done and where they intended taking it to in the future. I very much gained the feeling that it was the spiritual home of ALL Vietnam Veterans. Thus I am at a loss to understand the pretty vicious attack on them. It has no justification in fact and as you point out is malicious and vindictive in nature. For what purpose?
Obviously their association with Don Tate’s book infuriates them beyond reason, which must say something about their mental state.
By my reckoning, Don Tate’s gravest sin has been to pull scabs off old wounds and actually tell the truth as best he knew it. He has readily acknowledged that from the perspective of a digger in a rifle section, he had no idea of the bigger picture and made some incorrect assumptions. (His concept of SAS being one of them.) However, the irrefutable fact is that the Army did lie about him, lie to him and failed in their responsibility and duty of care owed to him. More likely out of ignorance than malice and then, as Tate’s story emerged, with wilful intent to defraud history. Neither was this the AWM’s finest hour.
Many of his critics seem to just want to denigrate the man without being able to produce the facts to rebut his assertions.
I believe that future generations ( and our own) deserve to know the TRUTH and Don Tate comes closer to it than much of the “official” version of it as the AWM would have us believe. We also owe the truth to the 502 (not exact) of our comrades who fell in combat and all those who have passed on since.
I will be ordering my copy of Don’s book from the NVWM and posting it to him to autograph. IF any of his critics writes and publishes an authorative and authenticated book that tells their version of events, then I will also purchase it and give it all due consideration. Until such an event occurs and I suspect that it never will, then by my best assessment based on the facts known to me, Don Tate’s version of events stands regardless of whose reputations it may blacken and whoever it may give cause to bleat their outrage and indignation in denial and denigration.
At a time, more so than ever before, when the Vietnam Veteran community should be united in fighting government over many long standing injustices, abuses and grievances, we are seemingly on the path to self destruction simply because a few (mentally deranged?) of us, have an ego driven spite and hatred of one of their own.
A man who DARED TO TELL THE TRUTH.

Subject: FW: BOYCOTT THIS FRAUDULENT MUSEUM
The anonymous wannabe Malicious Moronic Malodorous Maggots, lacking anything of importance to say about anything, have not only continued their campaign against Don Tate, they have now included the Vietnam Veterans Museum on Phillip Island, in their Hate Campaign.
This latest effort from the Malicious Moronic Malodorous Maggots follows in the footsteps of Gary Mosely – makes one wonder what the relationship is between Gary Mosely and the Malicious Moronic Malodorous Maggots. Perhaps he is one of their anonymous contributors?
My oh so clever Malicious Moronic Malodorous Maggots, you know what you have accomplished with your mass distributed diatribe? You have publicised the book to which you object. The most likely result of your fulminations (and Gary Mosely’s fulminations) is that people will want to buy the book to see what the furore is all about. You have aided the sale and dissemination of the book – just as I suspect your fulminations about Don Tate’s first book contributed to sales.
If any of you Malicious Moronic Malodorous Maggots (or Gary Mosely) feel that they have been untruthfully defamed, there are legal remedies to such defamation, rather than trying to bash a Third Party over the head for daring to make the book available. But then, to be able to resort to a legal remedy, you are going to have to buy a copy of the book and read it – aren’t you?.
But then, with all Gary Mosely’s fulminations, has HE even read the book about which he complains? Dare I suggest, NO?

Re: Corruption of ADF documents
I wish to bring a number of serious matters to your attention, and action.
First, I would like to advise you that I am a returned veteran of the Vietnam War. I was wounded in action on July 19th 1969 whilst serving with the 9th Battalion. I was hospitalised for more than two years, and remain permanently disabled.
I arrived in Vietnam on December 23rd 1968, and subsequently served across four units- the 1ARU; the 4th RAR; the 2nd D&E Platoon; and the 9th RAR.
Many years later, I was horrified to learn that I had not been recorded as having served in the 2nd D&E Platoon, or in the 9th Battalion. Worse- that the 2nd D&E Platoon didn’t exist in any records of the war.
I have spent more than four decades proving both things- and indeed, the Nominal Roll reflects the partial success of that battle. The battle to validate the 2nd D&E Platoon continues, despite formal recognition by the government, the AWM will not accept it.
Along the way, I have uncovered corruption of my documents, and a deliberate, orchestrated campaign by forces within the ADF to falsify documentation or deliberately mislead inquisitors, enabling other veterans led by Robert Buick and Keith Tennent to vilify me.
(a) The 9th Battalion Matter
I have a number of documents that confirm that I served with the 9th Battalion. See Attachment 1, 2 and 3.
There are others.
Yet, in 1996, an officer- ‘H. Seymour’ wrote to me on behalf of the CO of Central Army Records Office (CARO) to the effect that I had only served in one unit in Vietnam- the 4th Battalion. He further stated that I had served in that battalion from December ’68 to August ’69- despite the battalion returning home in May, and my being wounded in July. See Attachment 1, 2, and 3 again.
I believe this was also sent to journalist Mike Cordell of the SMH who wanted details of my service record in pursuing comments I had made in an SMH article about one of the atrocities committed on May 30th 1969- currently being investigated by the AFP.
This is clear evidence of duplicity by an officer of the ADF.
But the ADF’s capacity to deceive didn’t end there. In 1996, after I had pursued the omission of my service in 9RAR from the Nominal Roll, I received another letter from CARO by another senior officer- ‘D. Gibson’. He declared that here was absolutely no evidence that I had been posted to the 9th Battalion- and used as the basis for his statement the fact that the 9th Battalion’s record of its tour did not contain my name. In other words, he was using a record compiled by members of the battalion (and not CARO officers) which was written twenty-five years after the war!
Those false statements by senior CARO officers resulted in substantial abuse and vitriol being levelled at me for years by fellow veterans.
(b) 2nd D&E Platoon
In the second matter- the erasure of the ‘2nd D&E Platoon’, I wish to advise that all trace of this platoon disappeared after June 1969 as part of a sanitisation process. It was to cover-up a number of atrocities that were committed on May 29th 1969.
The deletion of that platoon resulted in the corruption of the service records of the 39 men involved- and which has led to widespread abuse and vitriol aimed at those of us attempting to right this wrong.
In Attachment 4, you will note that the Army document states that a number of men who were left behind when the 4th Battalion sailed home, were re-posted to ‘6RAR’. That was a deliberate corruption of army and service records. Not one of us ever set foot in the 6th Battalion.
What the army did, was create (illegally) a new platoon comprosing those men as a contingency force tasked with interdicting an army of some 800 Viet Cong soldiers congregating in the Xuyen Moc region of South Vietnam in May of that year. The platoon was created by Major George Pratt of the HQ Company of the Task Force under orders from Brigadier C.M. Pearson. This was done without the knowledge and approval of the Australian Cabinet.
Major Pratt has acknowledged this, in writing, and on film. That information was provided to the Australian War Memorial Director, Gen Steve Gower, and the historian Ashley Ekins. (It was supported by Major Barry Parkin- the platoon’s first commander who not only validated the existence of the platoon, but said he had always advised advocated of the platoon’s existence).
Gen Steve Gower and the historian ignored this information and maintained the lie that no such platoon had ever been created by that name. It is my contention that the ADF deliberately erased or hid all documents to do with the creation and existence of this platoon.
Following a series of atrocities committed on May 29th at Thua Tich (bodies destroyed; bodies towed behind APCs; and civilians fired at) the platoon was immediately disbanded, and all 39 men sent to other units in June 1969(mostly 9RAR)- myself included.
This resulted in a second corruption- the document stating that we had all been posted to ‘6RAR’ was now ‘amended’ to show us in HQ Company. Attachment 5.
The astute investigator would also note that Attachment 5 also shows me as remaining in ‘HQ Coy’ when, in fact, I had been Posted to RAR.
In examining this matter, I point out that the deletion of the 2nd D&E Platoon has had a deleterious effect on the lives of those of us who fought in it.
In pursuing the 2nd D&E Platoon matter, I have been the victim of more than a decade of slander and abuse on off-shore web sites set up by Robert Buick of Mountain Creek, Queensland- a self-admitted and evidenced murderer and a convicted paedophile, Keith Tennent- acting on behalf of the ADF. Because those documents had been corrupted in a manner that left an observed believing no such platoon ever existed, it was open slather.
More recently, I received a copy of my service records and was horrified to find my name blacked out of a document eehich identifies me as being on the same page as other men wounded in the same ambush I was. See Attachment 6.
I believe Gen Steve Gower of the AWM facilitated this- and that he would be linked to Buick by correspondence. I am pursuing that matter through the D.A.R.T. set up by the Hon Stephen Smith MP.
I also suspect that the Army History Unit has been involved in this sleigh of hand, and note that in correspondence I have received that there are associations between the AHU, the ADF, Robert Buick, and Writeways- an investigative firm acting on behalf of DVA.
I trust you will investigate the corruption of those documents and can provide additional information as required.

And hasn’t the military been quite successful at it?
Not just covering up child sex abuse within the military- but other abuse.
Allied with their ‘sanitisation’ of war records and photographs and a predilection for covering up any acts in war that might compromise the officer corps and the ‘ANZAC’ myth, we are witnessing the destruction of all honor in regards to the Australian military.
Not only have senior officers raped juniors, but actively encouraged it.
Not only did they encourage it, but shredded the reputations of anyone who dared complain.
Not only joined in, but fostered a culture whereby an inner sanctum of officers enjoyed excursions into paedophilia and other perverted activities.
Witness those officers from HQ IATF who preyed on young infantrymen posted into that Company.
Winess the abuse, facillitated by senior officers, against those of us simply trying to correct the historical truths of our service records and the truth about the 2nd D&E Platoon.
Witness how the abusers, within and without the military, were able to tap into the AVM, ANZMI and SITREP sites to vilify other veterans behind the cowardly mask of anonymity.
Witness the sheer gutlessness of men who joined in those attacks- led along by the likes of the paedophile, Keith Tennent and his mate, Bob Buick (and Ray Payne and Billing and Grady, and Price, and Mitchell-Taylor, and Gibson and Rowe and other dogs), without ever considering the emotional and psychological harm done to their victims and their families.
Winess the arrogance and coardice of former senor officers who stayed mute and failed their obligations to former men under their command when it came to validating the truth of their service- more concerned with the pursuit of ‘gallantry’ and secular medals than the welfare of those men.
Rape. Pack rape. Sodomy. Objects inserted into orifices. Grooming. Sexual favours in return for a stripe or two, or another pip on the shoulder. Turn a blind eye to it, or be damned. No promotion for you.
Bring on that Royal Commission- and force the cowards and deviates who have led our Defence Force and betrayed those who signed up thinking it was a bastion of honour and integrity.
Seek the perverts out, regardless of how rich and powerful and ‘connected’ they are.
Trash THEIR reputations. Expose their families to the truth about those shing medals on the chests and the pretty berets and caps.
Demand an answer to this question- how did a convicted paedophile like Keith Tennent manage to wield such influence within the veteran commnity and managed to have generals and politicians on his personal mailing lists.
What hold did Tennent have over them?
How could it be that a self-confessed murderer and coward- Bob Buick, have such sway within the ADF that they ignored his war crime and his ‘tin medal’ and his antics as the administrator of vilifying web sites.
How could Defence documents be illegally accessed by men with fingers in more pies that Jack Horner- and who facillitated the transfer of those documents and made ‘forensic’ alterations as those documents floated around the internet?
But more importantly- a more serious question still:
WHERE ARE THE REAL MEN OF THE ADF- the men who weren’t perverts?
WHY HAVEN’T THEY SPOKEN OUT AND DISTANCED THEMSELVES FROM THOSE THEY KNOW HAVE DENIGRATED EVERYTHING THEY HELD DEAR?
But then again- where are the politicians in all this?

Attention all Junior Recruits who joined the RAN during the late 1970’s and 1980’s, this document is a must read for you. It is my sincere urging that you seek the help of a “HIGHLY TRAINED” Advocate with broad TIP experience and connected matters.
At this point let me introduce you to Dick Yardley, who is a very highly versed intellectual in these matters. He served and when he says “an interesting read”, it would pay you to believe it if you fall into the category stated in the introduction above. Kindly, if you were a Junior Recruit in these dates, could you disseminate this document as widely as is possible. These craven Bastards have got away with their crimes for far to long because individuals have been self conscious and not wanting to go “ONE OUT”. Rest assure, you will be far from “One Out” once this becomes “active”. May God go with you and serve his justice upon these twisted persons – it is imperative that they get all that they deserve, they have hidden behind the Officer Rank for far too long. Bon Chance and note in the document of the some 76 members who nominated themselves in one instant to the Inquiry, only 6 presented for input to the Commission. That is why these Bastards get away with it.

Friends and activists….. and censored media.
Today the writer attended the farcicle Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to child sexual abuse sitting in Perth and when the hearing was convened stood up and requested Commissioner Bob Atkinson to recuse himself from the bench due to the fact he is publicly accused of covering up for (among other things) the sexual abuse of former high school military cadets. Mr. big time Bob Atkinson has been implicated in the Rofe QC report among other things for numerous prima facie criminal offences related to covering up child sexual abuse.
For the uninitiated the coverup of child sexual abuse in high school military cadets has been ongoing since around the mid 1970’s when the mentality was to quietly remove pedophiles from the armed services without contacting police after they had been reported by victims or other witnesses. When myself and 3 other victims blew the whistle in 2000 on convicted serial pedophile RAAF flying officer Graham Charles Wickson we were not aware of the ramifications and victimisations that would flow from it and that 14 years on the battle would still be raging.
The long and short of it is this. Atkinson and his crony mates in Brisbane and Canberra hit the panic button in 2000 after the police complaints were made in Brisbane. Every stunt in the book was deployed to try to shut down the complaints and shake us off and it all occured under Atkinson’s watch as the then police Commissioner. We always put it down to the fact Wickson was seriously connected to high profile ALP identities and the Queensland Justices Association.
6 years and a lot of stress and destroyed souls later we finally got Wickson into the Brisbane district court where even after continual manipulation of the jury he was still found guilty of 8 counts of child sexual abuse and sent to prison. The shit did not stop there however as the victimisations continued. What we now know is they had to prevent any kind of court related compensation action in case the truth was revealed about the extent of the coverup. During the perfunctory police investigation a copper let slip that the RAAF records had vanished and that Wickson was even trying to claim he was never in the RAAF. We hung in there for the long haul despite the damage it was all causing and with the trade unions and prank phone callers all playing their part for the ALP or at least we thought it was for the ALP.
11 years later the ADFA skype scandal broke and when the writer tried to make submissions to the ensuing DLA Piper inquiry the stonewalls began appearing again. So into the research wagon I went with a big shovel and started digging. We now know that there is a missing report known as the 1975 Miller report into the former Australian Cadet Service and then there is another report known as the 1996 Brewer report. It has taken 3 years to locate the Brewer report and that only surfaced after a multi million dollar common law claim was filed against the Department of Defence.
We now know that the Howard government had sat on the Brewer report for 4 years and done nothing while cadets were STILL being molested or left at risk and when we blew the whistle on Wickson in 2000 Senator Abetz was put into action as the parliamentary secretary to the minister for defence in the Howard Government. The entire ACS was trashed and reformed under a new corporate banner whilst the Wickson investigation was stalled for years by Atkinson’s QPS. In most cases the cadet units were moved out of the high schools to industrial complexes as the State schools apparently did not want the vicarious liability but that was not all.
More digging unearthed the real source of the paranoia coming from the Federal Government. It was discovered that In 1974 the Whitlam Government issued a decree to disband the ACS and it was reformed 2 years later in 1976 by the Frazer Government. What actually happened is many of the cadet units particularly RAAF and Army cadets continued to opeerate under some unofficial loose agreement with the States. The writer joined in 1974 aged 13yo and none of us were even aware that Whitlam had ordered a halt to the cadets. So when we blew the whistle on Wickson in 2000 we were not to know that a vicarious liability duck shoving argument would erupt between the States and the Federal Government. We were kept in the dark and treated like rubbish for what we now know was causing ultimate embarrassment and a lot of work for poor Eric Abetz. The writer has survived numerous attempts by Government agents to besmirch his name and reputation but not without damages and the attacks are still onging.
The problem they have today is the fact it is still all covered up and festering away whilst hundreds if not thousands of victims continue to languish and whilst the so called Royal Commission (sitting under the double kangaroo corporate seal today) shine a big light on the churches and keep a shadow on what is arguably the biggest Government coverup of child sexual abuse in the entire world. Meanwhile the central figure in the whole sham has been elevated to leader of the Government in the Senate. The DLA Piper inquiry itself almost imploded after being plagued by conflicts of interests and resignations and volume 2 of the eventual report (which according to former minister Stephen Smith was to be released by March 2013) containing all the dirt remains under lock and key.
There is no justice in the facsist State of Australia and I am glad I briefly interrupted the hearing this morning and got a small piece of truth on the commission record. (albeit will no doubt be scrubbed off the transcript) The reporters came rushing out of their media room to interview me but of course when they later found out it was Rob the phone hacking dobber, nothing made it to the evening news.
The censored media have been running the myth from day 1 that it all happened in the Navy to 15yo boys at HMAS Leeuwin in WA as a diversion to keep the spotlight off the fact it actually happened to 13yo boys at State run high schools in cadet units that were not even supposed to be operating creating an issue of enormous vicarious liability upon both State and Federal Governments. The attached clipping from ther Australian newspaper is an insult to every former high school military cadet in every state including WA.
A senior counsellor from the Catholic Church approached me for information and in the conversation stated that the church is fully aware of the extent of child abuse in Government run institutions but has had to weather the storm because they are powerless to expose the Government abuse as it will be spun off as blame shifting.
The ambiguity of having Atkinson on the bench of the Royal Commission cannot be described in mere words. Just another leftover legacy of JuLIAR Gillard. The attached clipping from today’s Australian newspaper indicates the veracity of the coverup. Only toward the end is there even a mention of young boys coined there as “minors” but there is talk of yet another expensive Royal Commission this time into the military sexual abuse. If that happens we might see Atkinson in the witness box instead of behind the bench?
SHAME SHAME SHAME thank goodness I am a British Citizen as I am ashamed to be associated with the soul destroying Governments of this nation and their armed militia.
