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.
