Case Notes:

 

Matthew David Henderson now resides in Perth WA, before that, he lived in Brisbane Queensland. He is the epitome of a lying valour thief. According to "his" stated military history he served as a Combat Engineer with lots of front line action. In reality he has never served with the Australian Defence Force.

The unentitled badge and medals he wears are:

Australian Army Combat Badge (ACB)
Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) Clasps ICAT and East Timor
Afghanistan Medal (AM)
Iraq Medal (IM)
Australian Defence Medal (ADM)
NATO Medal. Clasps possibly ISAF or Iraq

Henderson has put a lot of effort into convincing people that he is a battle hardened veteran of:

Iraq
Afghanistan
East Timor
Solomon Islands

Henderson is not wearing an Australian Service Medal (ASM), which he should be wearing for service in the Solomon Islands. As he has never served, no record of "his service" exists, and like his ACB, he has made a mess of "his medals".

Here is an example of an ASM which he has omitted to include in his fake rack of medals.

To further assert his derring do false military service, he has had many photographs taken with high profile citizens, whilst wearing false medals and an upside down ACB badge. False veterans like Henderson always make mistakes, and here is an example.

Notice in the main photograph, Henderson is wearing an Army Combat Badge (ACB) which is issued, to non Royal Australian Infantry soldiers, who have been involved in front line combat duties. Below to the left, is an official photograph of an ACB. To the right, is the ACB as worn by Henderson.

A careful look will disclose that Henderson is wearing the badge upside down. It is hard to imagine, a genuine retired Combat Engineer making such a stupid mistake.

Liars and wannabes, should not seek publicity, as media reports and photographs, are sure to expose their lies and deception. Media reports are read by veterans all over Australia, and, as is the case with Henderson, his stupid mistakes are easy to discern..

In 2018 Henderson was involved in a civil, real life and death situation, when he was rescued from certain demise during a diving incident. When commenting to The Western Australian Newspaper, he had to add spice to the story by saying.

“I’ve served in Iraq, Afghanistan and East Timor. “I’ve had a lot of near death situations, but nothing came close to being as scary as this".

Henderson has also spread the word of his service through social media, here are some examples.

It is truly pathetic to read Henderson's lament, about the Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian Government. He also has the temerity to offer genuine veterans advice.

Henderson was contacted on a confirmed mobile phone number, and as soon as a veteran researcher was mentioned, he vehemently denied that the person answering the phone was Matthew Henderson, and within two hours all his social media writings and photographs disappeared from social media publication.

We hold a Statutory Declaration detailing what he has said about his "Army service".

"He served in the Army from 1998 to 2010 and was deployed to iraq, Afghanistan, East Timor and the Solomon Islands.
Whilst in Afghanistan it was his job to dig up Land Mines and he got stabbed in the shoulder, because he would not follow orders, and shoot a women. As a result he was stood down for promotion for two years"

Matthew Henderson is a valour thief of the highest order, who has never served in any Defence Force, and knows nothing of the phenomenal bond between those who have served. He will however, now understand the fury of the ex service community, against those who steal their hard earned reputation and dignity.

To appease his desire for fame we have issued a "Scurrilous Valour Thief Medal (SVTM)" to him, and we hope he wears it with the same alacrity he wore the false medals and the upside down badge.
