Dave Harper, a wannabe soldier, has been exposed as a Walter Mitty liar for claiming to get a top medal – with the worst ever photoshopped picture. See SWNS copy SWFAKER. Dave Harper was exposed as a big fat liar after posting the dodgy fake on his Facebook page nicked from an actual hero soldier being given the third highest medal for gallantry. Harper put the picture up on his personal page, claiming to have been awarded the Military Cross for serving in Northern Ireland – despite the picture showing an Afghanistan conflict medal awarded. But the fantasist instead used a picture of Lance Corporal Alfie Pope of the Parachute Regiment, getting a rightly-earned medal from the Prince of Wales On February 9, 2012, during an Investiture Ceremony at Buckingham Palace. Shameless liar Harper pasted his ginger-moustachioed face over the top – complete with a perfectly level line below his beret – and claimed the picture was taken in October 1969.
