Brian Raymond Day. aka Sir Brian Day, aka Dr. Brian Day, aka Doris Day, aka Dolly Day.
215849. Born 1942.
Another wannabe who is an executive member of an ex-services organisation. (ESO)
Day is the President of Toowoomba (QLD) RSL, it's Sub-Branch, and a life member of the VVAA NSWBranch Inc.
This individual who demands to be addressed as "Doctor Day", is also a Frontiersman, just like Ponting, Weatherall and Ryan who appear on our site.
Brian Day did serve with the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) from April 1971 to April 1972, his second tour.
Before it was removed due to being challenged by Veterans, Day's CV was posted on a Blue Mountains Vietnam Veteran's website and it clearly stated,
"1967 - Posted to HQ Australian Forces Vietnam - Australian Army Training Team, US Special Forces"
For all you Veterans who have ever heard Brian Day's war stories and wondered whyhis service history does not appear on the Vietnam Veteran's Nominal Rollas shown below.
Here's why, on his first tour he claims was with AATTV and US Special Forces, he was actually a Corporal Batman, ECN 175, for 8 months with HQ AFV (Saigon) and then an instructor at 1ARU, a Rifleman, ECN 757.
He had been a Batman in Australia for quite some time as well.
These details have been cut from his Army records.
"Unit. now HQ AFV (Army Component) as Batman ECN 175 28 Jan 1967"
"Unit. now 1 Aust Rft Unit (Rft Str)=(Reinforcement Strength) 2 Oct 67"
A Batman? An Orderly, a Soldier who attended to mundane daily tasks for Officers.
1ARU? 1 Australian Reinforcement Unit, Nui Dat. He was a Corporal and Section Commander with this unit that trained newly arrived Infantry reinforcements.

At last, Brian Day admits that his first tour in Vietnam was not with the AATTV and attached to US Special Forces as he had told people over the past almost 40 years.
A snip from his bio as presented by the Blue Mountains Veterans Group.
1967 - Posted to HQ Australian Forces Vietnam - Australian Army Training Team Vietnam, US Special Forces.
A snip from the Toowoomba Chronicle article shown below.
"I've always been open about what I did that year," he said. "In 1967 I was posted to HQ AFV Saigon – I spent about eight months in administration and four months training reinforcements.
Now that the cat's out of the bag, Mr. Day confirms the information we originally presented as fact.
Toowoomba Chronicle Front Page - Dr Brian DAY, 11 May 2006.
Read his news article response to our charges of him being one of the most outrageous wannabes who ever drew breath. ANZMI has received no communications from Day's legal advisors.
Note the opening statement and the capitalisation of the first two words.
"HE HAS faced the enemy over the front lines in Vietnam, but Brian Day is now fighting a bloody battle to save his reputation"
Where and when did you ever face the enemy Brian Day?

Update - Dr Sir Brian Day
In case you were wondering as to the whereabouts of the bloke with the pseudo Doctorate and Knighthood.
“Dr” “Sir” Brian was snapped at a service in Bendigo Victoria on ANZAC Day 2010. Following our original exposure, Day moved from Toowoomba Queensland to Bendigo Victoria. His attempts to snaffle position in the Bendigo RSL were thwarted perhaps by our exposure. It is a simple truth that Australian Veterans who exaggerate their service and also pose as “Doctors” and “Knights” are not welcome in the Veteran community; especially after receiving a Doctorate from a bogus university, and a Knighthood from a mob like the Frontiersmen who like to dress up and play act at being personages of importance.
Here is Brian Day on ANZAC Day 2010 at Bendigo Victoria.
