    Alston has got the wrong rifle, but he's on the ball with the comic as per usual. I was going through a heap of his *****s the other day, he's a clever bastard.

    I wonder if the Government/ADF will try and make him the PR guy like they did with Trooper Donaldson, I remember him saying that he just wanted to get back with the guys...it's a little unpopular to put your VC heroes back into the front lines, but it amazes me that they would try and keep them out...after all how do they think they won their VC's in the first place.

    The Yanks used Sgt. Basilone MoH to sell war bonds until he requested to return as a DI and later to active duty.

    It's not a chook raffle, they didn't win them, they earned them.

    He also prematurely made him a corporal.

    He's been a Corporal for a couple of years. The previous pic of him as a lance corporal getting his MG is from 2006/7. Prior to that he was a Corporal in 3RAR before doing selection.

    Holy moly......He's a frickin' man mountain......I'll bet you a pint he was born and raised on a farm.....a farm the size of Rhode Island...you know, the average sized smallholding Australian farm. One that runs at least 500 head of beefies just to keep him properly fed.

    His old man is a bit of a big wheel at the cracker factory.

    He looks like a sheet of plywood with ears and a beret. Would it have killed the Aussie gov't to spring for a bit of tailoring?
