The chief gun officer at the Civil Nuclear Constabulary could be sacked after he was accused of wearing fake military medals including Iraq and Afghanistan military ­campaign ribbons at an awards ceremony.

Supt Glenn McAleavey, Force Firearms Officer for the Civil Nuclear Constabulary allegedly wore the ribbons on his tunic, despite never having served in either war zone.

The 37-year-old, who is a former Royal Marine ­commando, was reported by another former marine at the event, it is understood.

He is accused of breaching honesty and integrity standards and discreditable conduct.

    Such a weird unnecessary and ridiculous choice to make.

    Why do that? I suspect he had been lying about his service and felt the need to “prove” it by earring wearing the medals.

    But who the hell knows really. Some people just feel a pathological need to be liked, admired, or fit in to a group.

      Fortunately, Commissar does not feel the need to be liked, admired, or fit in to a group. That is why he frequents this site.

    I’m not familiar with British law, but if he goes to prison over this he will also be “facing the sack.”

    UK calls these guys WALTs.
    They have Facebook groups for this,
    much like the US groups and pages for MP and SV.

        We’re in the phony…we’re in the phony!

        An embellishing POS Canook breaks the dry spell. Bring it sbalm…and Thanks! We’re jonesing real bad out here. The HoI is so dusty we could plant a crop of Turkey Red Spring wheat on it. We could use the flour, must be out since there hasn’t been a recipe posted today yet. Day ain’t over.

        Oh and btw…Glenn McAleavey, way to step on your crank…dumbass. Ready for some Google Fame, Dippy?

      we had a 1SG get relieved for this in Germany back in the 80’s…Wore a Ribbon on his right shoulder…legit SS, felt the need to embellish that…

      His luck ran out when the new BDE CSM turned out to have been his former 1SG and new what’s up.

      We came to formation for PT on Monday and had a new 1SG just like that….

      He got sent to BDE to run radio watch in the BDE TOC…

      What a maroon…

        “Wore a Ribbon on his right shoulder…legit SS”
        What is “Ribbon” and “SS” in this context? Forgive a Marine…

    So being a Royal Marine Commando wasn’t enough for Bruh?

    And it looks like he forged a amazingly successful career after his military service.

    Lots to be proud of, but wearing fake medals will tarnish his legacy.

  11. He’s sitting in the loo right now with his breeks down, a fag in one hand and a pint in the other thinking Blimey, WTF and am I in a shitty situation

    • Daisy Cutter says:

      It’s this wanker’s own fault – he bollocksed it up and made himself dodgy with his own load of codswallop. What an arse – a true tosser.

      All this makes me feel knackered.
