Richard Ingram….or Dickie if you like


As predicted Remembrance Sunday had it fair amount of Walt Sightings and as you have read 18 year old Carwyn Pollard bluffed his way in court. claiming he was only wearing the uniform on the day out of respect for a “mate” yet when asked outside court He flat out refused to name him. Not that proud of him then! Looking through Carwyns profile and it is clear he is not only wearing or posting suggestions of Royal Marine service for just one day.

Some may say he was only a kid, but our next one is far from it.

Meet Richard Ingram or Dickie as he likes to be called. We were first alerted to Dickie when a local news article surfaced of Richard paying his respects in the local town complete with DCM, Ni GSM, SAM and some Ebay medal. Oh and an oddly shaped beret of the Royal Marines. We soon went to work, as did you the members and it was not long before we had our man!

Once he knew the game was up Dickie used the very same line as Carwyn. We wonder if he was his Defence Lawyer as this excuse was used before Carwyn was in court 🙂

As you will read from the text below Dickie did try to cling on, be it for a short period until he knew the game was fully up. Was he sorry, was he heck, only sorry he got caught!!

I am ***** Ingram, son of Richard Ingram.
The DCM was awarded to his father, as his father told him, so he believes his own father, whom he lost sadly to throat cancer, and he wears his medal alongside his own personal medals with pride. After reading this he feels disgusted and hurt and wishes for any posts related to him to be taken down before causing any more grief to other family members or friends, my father is not sure of the authenticity of his fathers medal, and will not wear it again until he is sure that it was awarded to his father, as was explained to him by his own father.
****** Ingram, with my Father sat beside me.

***** . Your fathers name were checked out against the SAMA82 formation role and he is not known. His name and picture were also shown to RM’s who were serving at the time and again the same format. It’s a small club!

We would suggest your father contacts us direct to save further embarrassment as any real Bootneck would not use his son to do his talking for him.

If he feels he can prove us wrong get him to send his service number. We can get it checked via our contacts!

My father is sat beside me and would like a contact number to speak via telephone to you people.

Richard it will be hard to convince people that you were simply paying respect when you wear nothing that shows your real service.

Right so when your son first posted that your fathers DCM was worn “alongside your own personal medals with pride” he was mistaken?

How long were you in the RA for? also why were you not wearing your fathers DCM back in 2011, if the other medals were his as well and why have we had reports you were telling people in your local about your time in the Royal Marines, Falklands war and other places?

Nov 23rd, 2:26pm
i have told you that i was sorry and yes i did say stupid things as the beer gets hold off you just wanted to be like my dad! it wont happen again!!

Sadly yet again only when cornered does the truth spill out.
