Order of Wisdom and Learning


  Companion  (C.O.W.L.)  


      Mr. Earle Evans
Brisbane, Queensland - AUSTRALIA

Bestowed with the Rank of Companion of the Order of Wisdom and Learning.
 Nominated by his Peers and now recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River for:
Sharing his knowledge with
his peers.

Earle was a founding member, and is now a life member, of the Brisbane Brewers Club. The depth of understanding Earle has of the brewing process is remarkable. Even with his advancing years, there are not a lot in the club that can hold a candle to him.

He stores the required grain that we use at his house, a.k.a. 'The Silo' for obvious reasons. He has built a mill that is a genuine engineering marvel and as the grain is cracked, so is the occasional beer. Much laughter and banter is shared with Earle and all the members that go for their grain and some gentle guidance.

Now 93 yerars of age it was thought time to recognise Earl for the experience provided to his peers for so many years.

Mr. Earle Evans C.O.W.L.





Illustrious Order of Merit

      Ms. Sophia Kennedy-Perkins

Bestowed with the Rank of Member of the Illustrious Order of Merit for:
Outstanding support of the Sovereign and the Principality of Hutt River as a member of the

in the Busselton Jetty Swim that finished in the top 10 teams in both 2016 (8th) and 2017 (10th).

  Knight (K.I.O.M.)  


      Mr. Leslie Micale.
(Brisbane, N.S.W. - AUSTRALIA)
Bestowed with the Rank of Knight of the Illustrious Order of Merit.
Nominated for recognition by his peers and recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River for:
Service provided to local sport & community.

Les has been involved with the Souths, Sunnybank Rugby League Club Inc. for the last 25 years.
In this time he has not only worked tirelessly, but has become a well respected man around the club.

Les spent many of his early years line marking the field every Saturday morning, helping to mow the grounds and has always been the first to put his hand up to help out at working bees. Les first became Patron of the club in 1996 and has been voted back in every year with no hesitation and is best known around the club for all his work amongst the senior players.

Les has been the common denominator over many years with the opens. He is a man of principal and integrity and he plays an integral part in the bonding of the senior squads. He donates his time with no hidden meaning solely for the love of the game and the club. 

Les is one of the most respected and loyal people around the club. No matter what dramas unfold he will always be there to offer a hand.
He isn’t afraid to speak out and let you know that you have crossed the line, or that he will back you if he believes you are doing the right thing by others. 

Every club has a great man, and ours is very lucky to have Les Micale a part of our community

Sir Leslie Micale K.I.O.M.




  Knight Commander  (K.C.I.O.M.)  
      Mr. Martin Foster

Bestowed with the Rank of Knight Commander of the Illustrious Order of Merit.
Nominated for recognition by his peers and recognized by the Sovereign of the Principality of Hutt River for:
Outstanding service provided to local sport & community for more than 40 years.

Martin Foster has delivered outstanding service to the sporting community of Adelaide through Baseball South Australia, the South Australian Winter Baseball Association, Sturt Baseball Club and Bridgewater Bulls Baseball Club.

His contribution as a player, coach, umpire and administrator began over 40 years ago and continues. Throughout this time Martin has been a role model for players and officials of all ages, parents, opponents, spectators and league stakeholders. In both the sport of baseball and the wider community Martin has voluntarily performed above and beyond what may normally be expected.

 Martin in this role has also promoted awareness for the community in the area of Men's Health and in particular preventative health checks for Men. This has occurred mainly through the commencement of the annual “Bulls Men's Health Day”. This event occurs in June each year and began in 2010 at the specific request and through the efforts of Martin. Since its commencement in June 2010, the event has grown each year.

Health support & preventative testing has included all facets of men's health.- skin checks, blood pressure, hearing, sight tests, psa's diet, exercise and nutrition. In addition, fund raising activity benefited the Cancer Society, Royal Guide Dogs and Beyond Blue.

Martin’s standing in the baseball community in South Australia is renowned and stretches well beyond his team, his club or his committee. He is a willing reference point for players and officials from other clubs who need objective advice or just a bit of moral support. When Martin’s length of involvement in baseball is combined with the spread of his player and administration activity across clubs and leagues, his contribution has literally touched many, many thousands of individuals in a positive way.

Sir Martin Foster KCIOM.
