Hare had a distinguished military career, but unfortunately for reasons known only to him, he has embellished his service and added three tin unofficial medals to his hard earned rack. Hare is entitled to wear 5 medals for his military service. He wears eight.

Hare graduated from the UK AAJL Regiment, Wales in 1964 with his good mate Stanley Earnest Preece, who also appears on the ANZMI site for embellishing his UK military service and wearing tin medals.

Ken Hare and Stanley Preece are now Graduates of the ANZMI Regiment, where they are eminently qualified to remain for some time.
