Case Notes:

Servicenumber 216579  Pte Peter Limebeer,  DOB 18/5/1943, originally enlisted into the CMF on  24 November1962 and was assigned to 33 Port Squadron  in NSW.   He was subsequently transferred into the [CMF] Royal New South Wales Regiment [RNSWR] Army Commando Reserve Unit, as a Privateand was discharged on 8/5/1968.

On 4 April 1964 he qualified for his Green Beret.   This was to distinguish him as having qualified his recruit training only. On 5 May 1964 he was upgraded from Recruit to Private. On 3 November 1965 he was transferred into the RNSWR a CMF [Army Reserve] unit.

On 24 November 1965 Pte Limebeer re-enlistedwith the RNSWR.

 It was on the 9 March 1966 where Private Limebeer first came to light as a Military Impostor.    Whilst at Crows Nest on 23 February 1966 he was found to be wearing a Parachutist's badge for which he had never qualified to wear.   He was charged, found GUILTY and  FINED.

Subsequent investigations reveal that Limebeer has in fact never qualifiedfor any significant skill except a basic Demolitions Courseon which he passed 14th out of a class of 16.

On 8 May 1968 Private Limebeer was discharged from the RNSWR under Australian Military Regulation 176 for being AWOL. [Absent Without Leave]

CPMH has had Limebeer complaints arriving for several years from a variety of  areas. It appears that he enjoys the tales he tells and the infamy he receives. The Wannabee Syndrome has many indications however Limebeer has been telling his tales for so long he now firmly believes them himself.

His complete military record is only but a few pages. However to enhance his paltry Military service achievements he has resorted to the Wannabee Syndrome in that he has invented some great Rambo type stories and has related these to all and sundry, who would believe them. His posting information is shown here.


Limebeer a declared drug addict and alcoholic has recently been undertaking an Addict Recovery Course at Albion St, Surry Hills NSW with the Salvation Army and has been residing there for a number of months. 

Some of Limebeer's claims are as follows:

He was a Major in the Commandos.
He is a Personal mate of General Peter Cosgrove.
He is/was the highest ranking officer in the Commandos.
Served as a RAAF Pilot in South Vietnam.
He was the most decorated Pilot in South Vietnam.
He served in Malaysia and Borneo as a Commando Reservist with the SAS.
He was decorated by the US for his part in saving a Submarine in Malaysia/Borneo.
He was a Pilot flying for Qantas.
He was a covert operator for ASIO operating in and out of South East Asia.

This is an amazing array of claims to fame by just one single Army Private with not quite six years service and in particular no operational or overseas service.

Limebeer applied to join the Balgowlah RSL in 1989.  His application to join the RSL, showed no overseas service, no decorations, no Medals and no awards.

The only Limebeer recorded as receiving a commission as an Officer in the Australian Army was in WW2, there is not and has never been, another Limebeer in the Australian Army.

There are no records in the Governor General's Department of any Limebeer as being an Officer in the Australian Armed forces during the years 1960-80.

There is no Limebeer listed on the Australian Vietnam Nominal Roll.

There is no record of a Peter Limebeer with RAAF service in South Vietnam.

 There is no record of a Peter Limebeer with RAN service in South Vietnam, Borneo or Malaysia.

There is no record of a Peter Limebeer having received any foreign decorations or any awards from the United States.

There is no record of a Peter Limebeer applying to the Prime Minister's and Governor General’s office, for permission to wear any foreign decorations or awards.

There is no record of any US Submarine being ‘saved’ or having been in ‘trouble’ in Malaysia or Borneo waters 1960-1970.

Dept of Veteran Affairs has no record of a Peter Limebeer.

The Australian War Memorial gives a different name as the ‘Most Highly Decorated Australian Pilot’ in South Vietnam.

Limebeer has resorted to blatant lies and misrepresentation by preying upon the Honour of those who did serve their country.  He is a parasite who has conned his friends and associates.   He has cheated them of the truth.  He has endeavoured to enhance the lies that he has told so often that he now believes them himself having told them so often.

We will never know exactly how many doors have been opened to this parasitic liar but from the many informants reports it is substantial.  It seems that this lying con artist who has been addicted to hard drugs and alcohol, has left the Surry Hills Hostel and is now living elsewhere.

No doubt he will again surface and most likely we will hear about him from someone who has been conned or lied to by Limebeer.  We will bring new updates about him as they come to hand.

This is published in the public interest, particularly that of the Vietnam Veteran Community. All information presented here is fact and the truth. Reports from the private citizens are supported by statement of fact and statutory declarations.
