UPDATED – Has anyone seen the Colonel? – UPDATED

In mid 2018, SVC became aware of a potential issue with the medals being worn by the Honorary Colonel of 2 Air Wing HQ @ Bagotville.

We were advised that Mr Perreault, a long-time former CIC officer who had transferred to the Regular Forces as a Logistician, had been wearing 3 medals in his group without lawful authority. The Chancellery at Rideau Hall and the CF’s Directorate of Honours and Recognition had also been made aware of the situation.

We believe that Mr Perreault has absolutely no entitlement to the Centennial Medal (1967), the Queen’s Silver Jubilee Medal (1977) and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal (2012) yet, the ribbons are clearly visible in his official portrait and they were listed on his now deleted RCAF Honorary Colonel biography.

Anecdotally, we have been told that Perreault has also embellished the both the Canadian Forces Decoration and St John Ambulance Service Medal with unearned clasps (this is not reflected in the image of the ribbons above).

Shortly after SVC started asking questions, Mr Perreault was quietly removed from the list of RCAF Honorary Colonels. Was it just a coincidence or, was it something more disturbing? Was Perreault permitted to sneak out the back gate?

Two of the bogus medals that he was wearing pre-date his investiture into the Order of Military Merit and the Order of St Jean. So, that begs the question, will his ongoing membership in these prestigious organizations be reviewed as a result of his medallic fuckery™?
