If anyone takes offence to my crossposting this, I appologise now to you.
I just feel that folk on soc.genealogy and history british have also had
their fair share of this man and may be interested in what the 'Real' D
Spenser Hines actually did, which doesn't bare much resemblence to the crap
Hero, far from it.

No denials, nothing, our illustrious Commander knows now he has been busted.

Perhaps I should point out that Hines was most likely not involved in this
theatre during the KAL 007 crisis in 83. He had probably moved on by then,

Perhaps I should mention another important fact that you've perhaps
We have been given some very reliable information which tells us that
*after* Commander D Spencer Hine's posting with USGA at Misawa, his naval
military career took a "nosedive", to quote the exact word. Perhaps the old
sea dog would care to elaborate on that a little ?
I doubt it, he's ashamed.

Indeed, as I have mentioned before, for a 'lifer' like Hines, gaining the
rank of Commander is virtually automatic.(especially with Daddy being an
Admiral). After which, the bright people, people who have shown they can be
trusted and use their own intiative, move on to the dizzy ranks of Capt. or
Not our Spence though, he pissed so many people off, he joined all the

He must have been such disappointment to his father, yet he still acts in
the same pompous nasty manner displayed during his service career. Quite
frankly I'm amazed he managed to make even Commander.

Had Spencer been in a combat troop, his sort were soon dispatched with a
quick clean shot in the back by his own men.
Commander D Spencer Hines has never been in combat and has never had a shot
fired at him in anger by the enemy.
Bluff and bullshit, something he's quite good at.
When once asked recently what he did in 'Nam' his reply was,"If I told you,
I'd have to kill you". Laugh, I nearly pissed myself.

No denials from the defence, not even an OT post describing us both as

Bluff, bluster and bullshit is what you get from Spence. I once said to him,
you hit me with a stick, I'll return the blow with a sledgehammer - it's
going to be a long summer old chap.

How sickly sweet it is.
