The 2nd picture makes me literally laugh out loud!  Glad they stopped this moron.

Perhaps he's not a moron. Just someone with MH problems (which I would have to agree with given his 'accoutrements'.)

Let's just hope he gets whatever help he needs and that he recognises what he did was wrong.

There, but for the grace of god.............................

Lots of pics of homeless vets, just not as well dressed. Most of the ones I see are dressed more like this,

He looks a lot like that guy from Kingston that was going around claiming to be a PPCLI Capt at one point, was in one of the CAV MC's.  If it is, he didn't learn much from his previous time around...or, as RG noted, he has a mental health issue, at which point getting arrested might actually benefit him.

How about the lady from Hamilton who commuted to the Eaton Center in a BMW to panhandle, while her husband had a good paying job and they both lived in a upscale neighbourhood.

That was the "Shaky Lady" and she drove a Chevy Lumina.

Finally some words of wisdom.  The whole stolen valour Schtick is growing tiresome.  People rejoicing about homeless people getting arrested, because they are dressed up in a pseudo military uniform.

Who the hell uses the word Posers, as an adult, to describe another person???!!!!

I would use the term but alter the spelling to poseur as it seems back when this strand started the collective "we" adopted the spelling used probably from the first media story reported. These folks are poseurs (see OCD definition) regardless of their physical or mental state and in being so tend to make me just a bit upset that they try to use the good offices of the military past and present to scam Joe Public.

Frank Gervais, the Ottawa man recently posing as a soldier, doesn't appear to have been homeless.  Carl Dale, the Kingston man recently posing as a soldier doesn't appear to have been homeless.  The Toronto man recently posing as a soldier appears to have been a beggar but may or may not have been homeless.

Does it warm the cockles of your soul, and you are giving thanks this weekend, that they got caught?

Please expose them, and move on.  People are villifying them, like you, years after they were caught.

He does wear a beret better than half to folks I have seen around here in Gagetown though.  The new fashion here is to have your beret push down the forehead til the badge sits over the eyebrow, funny as hell.  I call it the pirate beret!

Lightguns, they're just following the Canadian Army Sergeant-Major's example... :nod:

Contact. Wait out. #4 British Army beret recognition 1: Cap badge placement.

How a soldier shapes his beret is a very persoanl thing. As long as you don't have an aircraft carrier or a helicopter landing pad on your head you can usually get away with how it looks. Therefore, certain styles have emerged.

The NiG has the aforementioned landing pad. This is beacuse he's inexperienced and his beret is quite new.
The Tom has a pretty normal looking beret because he's playing the game.
The soldier that thinks he's "Ally" will modify almost every part of his uniform and his beret will reflect this disregard for convention.
Finally, the senior seems to have forgotten the "Left eye, right flop" mantra for beret placement and his cap badge creeps further around his head as he gains more experience.

I always wondered how far around a senior's head a cap badge would go if it was left long enough.

I believe that would be "The Menard."  ;D

Of course, it would likely have spun further around his head, had he not been sacked.

To be fair, I can't blame the guy for wanting to look like a highlander.

If I'm Menarding my beret, means I need to visit Alex my barber.

My opinion, any one with a beret like that is an early indication of future summary offences.

I saw this today and I know that it is illegal to wear Honours (medals) that a person did not earn themselves. So I am curious from the experts here, are you allowed to wear honours that you did not earn on the right side? My initial thoughts would be no, but for re-enactments such as this case?
