To whom it may concern,

I have known Robert Hayden for fifteen years and it gives me great pleasure to write a referral for him.

He joined the Victorian Police Force from school and graduated from the Police Academy with flying colours. He was a dedicated policeman with no miss-directed sense of power, but a sense of responsibility, which was unusual in one so young. 1 believe he joined because he felt that it was the best way that he could serve the community.

Unfortunately he had to leave very early in his career as he was badly injured in a brawl at a rock concert. He was unable to work, but he expanded his education by travelling extensively throughout Europe, North Africa and the U.S.A. Wherever he went he made friends, many of whom have since come to Australia and benefited from his hospitality and his extensive knowledge of Australia, particularly the outback.

He undertook a course in Photography at Sth. Melbourne College, and this proved an ideal medium for him to express himself. His photographs show his appreciation for the world that we inhabit and the beauty that is in it, both physical and spiritual.

Robert is an ardent four-wheel driver. He has undertaken the most arduous journeys in Australia, two of which were traversing the Simpson Desert the wrong way (East to West), and conquering the Canning Stock Route from South to North (also the hard way). These trips were fraught with danger and required the most meticulous planning. Even with the best of planning the unexpected does occur, but he has the mechanical knowledge and the skill with his hands to enable him to overcome most difficulties.

I have no hesitation at all in recommending Robert to you, and I wish him well in his future.
