Your average 'Oz Journo' would not have a clue when it comes to members of the Military or Police Forces.

I recall when a so called respected journo was referring to Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith VC, he referred to him as a Colonel.

Another idiot journo/radio shock jock when referring to a news item about a UK Chief Constable of Police, referred to him as a Constable.:rolleyes:

A little while back a Lt. Cdr, & frequent RR Poster, moved to Oz to join the RAN - I cannot recall his c/sign but would that be your matey?
No, Tony was an Aussie on exchange here.

I know a lot of brits some good mates who've emigrated and joined the RAN. Most enjoying it, some finding it the same just sunnier.
