Surname: Hawkins
Christian Names: Peter Stanley
Country: Australia

Service: RAAF
Case Notes:

Peter Hawkins enlisted into the RAAF, 10 Feb 1967, served as an Airfield Defence Guard at Ubon, Thailand,  arriving 15th Dec  1967 returning to Australia after 6 months on compassionate grounds.  On return he remustered as a Physical Training Instructor serving in numerous units as expected of a long serving member of the RAAF and then he eventually remustered again finishing his career as a Warrant Officer, Discipline. WO(D)

An Airman of such standing and integrity, someone young Airmen & women could look up to and to aspire to become, a role model for the young officers to emulate, someone who's leadership they could epitomize.

A WO(D) is the equivalent of a Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) in the Army and above we have described some of the attributes that can/should be expected from such a person.

Warrant Officers' are often charged with the duty of Guardian, preserving and enshrining the traditions and history of their Unit and Service. Such a person only receives this appointment because he was held in high esteem. One would think that after taking the uniform off he would have maintained such dignity.

Not so for Peter Stanley Hawkins, it is alleged that on occasions, he has embellished his service with stories that are far fetched but, as these cannot be substantiated we will not go into details, unless of course a reader of this can confirm and substantiate any such stories.

He claims to have served in South Vietnam as seen on an application to transfer from one RSL Sub Branch to another below.
 



 

Peter Hawkins, you have been caught out wearing the Vietnam Medal and Australian Active Service Medal 1945-75 with clasps Vietnam which, you are not entitled to.  You have been caught wearing what appears to be Tin at the end of your medals rack as well.  If you must wear tin to enhance your service then the appropriate area to wear them would be on the right breast and well below any NOK medals you may be able to wear.



  



Why would a man with such an exemplary career would resort to embellishing and tarnishing his long service is something we here at ANZMI cannot fathom. It is the actions of a fool, one who needs help.  If you need to dress yourself up to be something you are not after a 35 year career it possibly indicates a low esteem and dissatisfaction within yourself.

You should have been proud to wear the Australian Active Service Medal with clasp Thailand, the Defence Force Service Medal with 20, 25, 30, & 35 year clasps and the National Medal. There should be no reason to embellish your career as those medals speak for themselves.

Peter Stanley Hawkins, you once were a leading example of integrity, a founding member of the Blue Eagles where you are held in high regard.  You have let your peers down and you have insulted veterans who do not need to embellish themselves.

Under the Defence Act 1903 you were appointed to the rank of Warrant Officer and to carefully and diligently discharge your duty as required by Military Law and to conduct yourself in a manner to ensure respect for lawful authority and to uphold the honourable tradition of the rank, "Warrant Officer".

Under the Defence Act, something you would have advised on and were required to administer, it is an offence to wear medals one is not entitled to. By wearing these medals you are not entitled to, you have shown contempt and disregard to all your former peers and fellow veterans and dishonoured yourself. Remove these medals from your rack before you perpetuate your dishonour.

Peter Stanley Hawkins was sent a letter from ANZMI asking him to prove his entitlement to wear these medals. He was also given an opportunity to repent and apologise to the veteran community. He did neither instead he chose to ignore the letter.

Peter now resides here and the "war service" he claims is now available to the world.

We have managed to identify the un-official tin medal that Peter Stanley Hawkins is wearing as well as other RAAF personnel who also wear it. The medal is known as the Ubon Medal, a worthless medal obliviously struck up by ex RAAF persons that served at the RAAF Base Ubon Thailand during the Vietnam War.

Whoever designed the medal should have chosen a different ribbon for two reasons; the first is that the colours chosen are that of the Thai National Flag. Using the colours of a National flag to make up worthless piece of junk for these glory hunters to make them selves look like they are some kind of heroes by wearing extra medals they are not entitled to, is an insult to service personnel who have earned their official medals.

The second and this is just as insulting more so to the Thai people is the ribbon had been used for an official Thai medal in 1933 named “The Safeguarding the Constitution Medal” and was awarded to those who assisted in suppression of the 1933 rebellion against the constitution and the newly formed constitutional monarchy of 1932.

On the observe is a radiant two-tiered pedestal bearing the Constitution within a floreate wreath. On the Reverse is the deity Pra Siam Taewathirat (Lord Protector of Siam).

The top bar is inscribed in Thai “Sacrificing Your Life” and on the suspension “For The Country”

Our recommendation to these ex RAAF personnel, who wear the medal, is to remove it as it is highly offensive to the people of Thailand. It should also not be worn with official awarded medals.

You will see in the photograph taken in 2007 in Perth other ex RAAF personnel wearing the same tin medal and one member has it mounted in front of an official medal. Obviously some ex RAAF personnel have no knowledge re the protocol of the wearing medals which does not say much for their pride or intelligence.

Surname: Haydon
Christian Names: Barry Francis
Country: Australia
State or Province: QLD
City or Town: Kingaroy
Case Notes:

Live: 05 Nov 2013

Barry Francis Haydon of Kingaroy, Queensland, would have you believe that he was an extraordinary, Royal Australian Navy (RAN) Ordinary Seaman.

Haydon-1

Haydon has put himself in the category of the "courageous" characters, who are also located on this web site. See Noel Patrick “Molly” Muller and Alistair Ross Hardy, who, as Navy Seamen were also "involved" in heroic clandestine operations in the jungles of South East Asia.

For more than twenty years, Haydon has told tales of his extraordinary service with the RAN and a United States Navy Sea Air Land (SEAL) unit. We hold statutory declarations relating to the ridiculous claims made by Haydon and we will show that he is a liar and a wannabe.

It is hard to believe that the United States Navy SEALs would recruit an unspectacular Australian Ordinary Seaman, who after nineteen months service of a nine year enlistment period, was discharged from the RAN as being "Unsuitable", as indicated below on his official RAN file.

Haydon-2

According to Haydon, the SEALs recruited him as soon as he left the RAN and sent him "back up country" (To Vietnam).

Haydon joined the RAN on 22 August 1970 and departed on 27 March 1972.
During his short stay in the Navy he served on HMAS Brisbane in Vietnam from March 1971 to October 1971 as a nineteen year old Ordinary Seaman. His service was ordinary, as was just about every other Sailor, Soldier and Airman who served in Vietnam.

Haydon-3

As shown above, Haydon was employed as an Ordinary Seaman, Underwater Weapons. (Under training). When asked about his job involving Underwater Weapons he said,

"No, that should be Diver as "Underwater Weapons" means a "Diver"

RAN Clearance Divers are a Special Forces elite group. They have never heard of Haydon. RAN personnel who served in Vietnam as Divers, are clearly shown on the Vietnam Nominal Roll as "Clearance Divers".

After being snapped up by US Navy SEALs and returned to Vietnam. He tells of his mission to extract Australian Secret Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) Officers from the Australian Embassy in Saigon. He says -;

"We had to remove all identification and of course wear 'civvies' we made a high speed dash up the river to a pick up point. We got them, as it was pretty crowded, we did a hot extraction".

Then in a secret RAN unit he did operations in Australia:

"We had to come up river to the New Farm area of Brisbane in the 1970s. Removed all identification and wear civilian clothes because if we were caught we were on our own. The mission was to remove documents from an office on the river bank, then do a high speed extraction down the river"

Whilst serving on HMAS Hobart

"He became inebriated in Singapore. His ship left without him. He had to ‘hitch hike’ to Vietnam to try to catch his unit. On the way he was caught up in a battle, but was rescued by the Green Berets"

On another occasion -;

“You know how these things happen. I recall that when I was up country, I heard some movement one night. I let off a full ‘mag’ and then I realised what I had shot was a bird”.

In a recent incident, a very high profile, highly decorated Veteran visited Kingaroy and Haydon had the audacity to invent a story about how the visitor had rescued his father during a battle in Korea.

In April 1972, after his removal from the RAN, Haydon joined the Australian Citizens Military Forces (ACMF) (Part time) as a Private soldier. One would think he would have acquired an elevation in rank after his "Secret Service".

He was discharged from the ACMF in 1974. He then re-enlisted into the Army Reserve (Part Time) in March 1979, where he qualified as a Cook at the rank of Private, until he was discharged at his own request on the 26 May 1980.

Ex-Service persons from the Kingaroy area are exasperated with Haydon's ridiculous stories that are not told in jest, but in a manner to enhance his persona as a returned RAN Veteran, who did much more than was ever expected of an RAN Ordinary Seaman.

Most Veterans are content with their true military history and have no desire to grossly exaggerate and lie about it. Haydon does not realise that those he tells his tales to, know immediately that he is a liar, a wannabe, and a person who has earned the disrespect of the Veteran Community everywhere.

He has well earned his position on our web site and unlike the RAN we find him most suitable to serve on our web site.

Surname: Hayes
Christian Names: Robert Wayne
Country: Australia
State or Province: Western Australia
City or Town: Kalamunda
Service #: 5714696
Service: Army
Branch: Australian Army Catering Corps
Case Notes:

 

Most of those who appear on this website are cheats and liars, some like Robert Hayes are just dills who flaunt protocol and tradition. Hayes on numerous remembrance day occasions has worn the jacket of his father who served in the Royal Australia Artillery for thirty seven years.

Hayes


Hayes has committed a plethora of breaches of protocol by wearing the jacket which has his father's medal ribbons on the left breast and nineteen miniature medals on the right breast. He also wears numerous badges including an Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) and Warrant Officer badges of rank. To "jazz" things up a bit, he has attached his own set of miniature medals to the left breast under his father's medal ribbons.

Notice that under the jacket, he also wears a shirt with a Special Air Service Regiment Logo. (SASR) This is the shirt of an excellent ex Service Organisation established in Western Australia known as Warrior Racing. That organization has approval from SAS associated organizations to wear and sell the shirts for charity. Warriors Racing is associated with the following:

Warrior Racing supports the following charity organisations:

Defence Care / RSL
Commando Welfare Trust
Soldier On
Legacy
Special Air Service Historical Foundation
Wandering Warriors
Overwatch Australia

Hayes served for two years as a National Serviceman in the Australian Army Catering Corps. During which time he served for one hundred and ninety eight days at Headquarters 26 Company RAASC in Vietnam.

ANZMI tries hard to stem the flow of "dills" wearing whatever they like in contravention to our heritage and established protocols and traditions.

Be assured that we will not falter in the quest to maintain the dignity of our tradition, heritage and protocols in the Australian and New Zealand Veteran and ex Service communities.

It is difficult to imagine why Hayes wears his father's jacket covered in medals and ribbons. He should be proud his own service and be satisfied with his own five medals.

The general public, proudly attending ANZAC Day marches and services, would have little idea of medals protocols, and would conclude that Hayes is a bemedalled war hero. Hayes would be well aware of the protocols that have existed for over 100 years in regards to wearing the medals/ribbons of direct family members.

Hayes is welcomed to this web site for his lack of respect to the ex service community.

City or Town: Geraldton
Service #: 5717190
Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Case Notes:

 

Ian Heberle wears five medals and six badges.   He did not earn one of the medals and one of the badges

 

Heberle1

 

He wears:

 

Infantry Combat Badge (ICB) - Not entitled

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) - Not entitled

 

Heberle served in Vietnam for 87 days as a Private Infantry Soldier.   Entitlement to wear the RVCM requires service of 181 days.

 

Heberle2

 

Those who were classified as Battle Casualties and returned to Australia before completing 181 days are also entitled to wear the medal. Heberle did some hard work in Vietnam but was never classified as a Battle Casualty.

 

Heberle3

 

Above his medal ribbons he is wearing the prestigious ICB.

 

Haberle4

 

Entitlement for this badge is:

 

Heberle5

 

As he served in Vietnam for only 87 days he is not entitled to wear the ICB.

 

Heberle is from a family with military history as he wears on his right breast World War 2 medals that were earned by a direct relative.

 

Heberle, like many other Returned Veterans has chosen to purchase and wear a medal and a badge that he did not earn.

 

A nation wide audit of photographs from commemorative occasions is under way resulting in many exposures of Veterans wearing medals they did not earn.  

 

Heberle has been caught and placed on this website, where he will remain for a very long time.

 

 

Surname: Heinze
Christian Names: Frederick Richard
Country: Australia
State or Province: Victoria
City or Town: Unknown
Case Notes:

It is difficult to record the story of a 'real life war hero' who has no military experience whatsoever. Many of the infamous fake warriors that are exposed on these pages have some service to embellish and in many cases years of service that is simply embellished to enhance a career, gain access to taxpayers' money, or impress a partner or mates.

 Not so in this case. Frederick Richard Heinze was born on the Twenty-First of September 1946; he is a Virgo-Libra cusp child. That is where he has been every since, a wandering adolescent claiming dubious military service. Of course Fred travelled the predictable path all wannabes follow. He claims to be a member of Australia's Special Forces, the Special Air Service (SAS) Regiment, and during his obligatory tour of duty in Vietnam he was a helicopter pilot. As you will read below, he was not an officer flying helicopters in Vietnam as he was commissioned some ten years after the war.

So confident of the Walter Mitty life he built for himself that he included these claims in his résumé. 

It was only when he made application to join a gun club was his military questioned and during an interview he defiantly refused to answer questions saying that his "CV" was correct and he stood by that document authenticity. Of course the "CV" was a fraudulent document, as he has no military service. He had laid his integrity and honest open for verification so the gun club requested specific information from the army records section. The committee has the responsibility to be satisfied of every applicant's character for suitability for membership. 

The army did conduct a full search of its records and they advised the gun club that no Frederick Richard HEIZE, born 21 September 1946, had ever served in the Australian Army.

Fred Heinze resides in Victoria and has been, maybe still is, a member of the Australian Clay Target Association joining that group in 1968. Our gun-toting hero states that his military service was from 1966 to 1974, five years as a SAS soldier (1966-71), then an officer from 1982-87. Of course anyone who has experience in these matters could and would quickly confront him and expose him as a fraud, conman and shyster.

If you are live in the Wonthaggi and Dandenong district of Victoria you may well know Frederick Richard Heinze. If that is the case, next time you meet with him look him in the eye and tell him that you know all about the would-be hero status he boasts about. While doing that you might as well tell him he has made the Internet pages of shamed exposing military wannabes. Tell him to contact CPMH by email; they would appreciate a recent photograph to update his file.

The aim of CPMH, and this web site, is to bring these wannabe misfits, with the Fred Heinze fantasy, to the public's notice.

All Heinze's claims are false.

Surname: Hentscher
Christian Names: Gunther
Country: Australia
State or Province: Queensland
City or Town: Kingaroy
Service #: A117358
Service: RAAF
Branch: Dental
Commencement of service: 07/06/1967
Completion of service: 06/06/1979
Case Notes:

 

Gunther Henscher was a Board member of the Kingaroy Returned and Services League (RSL), where he often represented the President on ceremonial and social occasions around the District. He had his own office at the RSL and was the official Membership Officer. He wore five Medals of which four were fake.


Gunther Hentscher



Notice that Hentscher is wearing:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) - Not entitled
Vietnam Medal (VM) - Not entitled
Australian Defence Medal (ADM) - Entitled
Commemoration of National Service Medal (CNSM) - Not entitled
Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) - Not entitled

The only medal that Hentscher is entitled to is the ADM, awarded for completing four years of volunteer service in the Defence Force. In fact Henscher never served one day anywhere overseas in operational areas. He was never a National Serviceman and has no entitlement to wear the CNSM. The three most important medals that denote active service in Vietnam are complete shams. By wearing these medals he has committed offences against the Defence Act 1903 Part VII, Sections 80A and 80B.

The Kingaroy Police will have no difficulty in prosecuting Henscher as there are dozens of witnesses available at the RSL. This is a blatant case of enhancing ones status in a community by dishonouring Veterans everywhere. The maximum penalties for these offences are fines of $3,300 or six months imprisonment of both. This penalty applies for both offences of:

80A. Falsely representing to be returned soldier, sailor or
airman
80B. Improper use of service decorations.

As well as claiming to be Returned Serviceman, he also claimed that he served in Vietnam in 1970 as Helicopter Pilot with the rank of Squadron Leader. As he was born on 31 October 1949, it would be not possible for him to have been a Squadron Leader at the age of Twenty One years. In fact he never rose above the rank of Corporal and was a Dental Hygienist.

Below is an extract from his Discharge Papers signed in June 1979.


Hentscher



There is a long term inherent weakness in the Kingaroy RSL membership system. Despite an intricate system of checks that should have been done by the Kingaroy RSL, the RSL Regional Headquarters at Bundaberg Qld and the Qld RSL State Headquarters, fraudulent documents must be been "signed off" by senior RSL Officers at the three levels of management. The RSL should realize that there is more to being a senior RSL executive than the "perks" they receive.

As well as the offences against the Defence Act there is also the aspect of creating and signing fraudulent documentation Because of their fear of embarrassment, it is obvious that this matter has been covered up at all levels of the RSL. They need to demonstrate some integrity and formerly report this matter to the Police for action.

There have been three other major fraudsters uncovered from Kingaroy who were all "respected" members of the local veteran community, The are:

Colin William SCHMIDT of Kingaroy. (deceased). Schmidt was President of the RSL who Falsely claimed to have served in Korea.
www.anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/v...-thieves/256-schmidt

Ronald William MASTERS of Kingaroy. Wore fake medals including an unofficial Injured service persons medal. www.anzmi.net/index.php/cheats-thieves/v...-thieves/174-masters

Barry Francis HAYDON of Kingaroy. Falsely claims heroic "secret service" with Royal Australian Navy in Vietnam. We are advised that HAYDON is still making a fool of himself whenever he gets the opportunity.

Now, Gunther HENTSCHER a senior Board Member and Membership Officer is added to the sorry list.

The Kingaroy RSL knew full well that Hentscher had committed crimes against the Defence Act, and acts of fraud that were insults to all Veterans everywhere. Their motive for the non reporting could only be to cover up the incompetence of their administration at all levels.

Hentscher has well earned a place on this web site and we look forward to reading about charges proffered to the Kingaroy Police by the RSL.
