Willy Bruce of Ottawa Canada should be congratulated for being the first Canadian to feature on our web site. Be assured that "Silly Willy" well earns a place in the annals of Australian and New Zealand military history for being a sham of a Shaman and a sham of an ex RAAF Pilot in Vietnam.


Notice that Silly Willy is wearing three Australian medal ribbons, they are:

Australian Defence Medal Ribbon (ADM)

Vietnam Medal Ribbon


The Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal Ribbon


"Silly Willy' is wearing the ADM in the wrong sequence, it should be the second last ribbon and not the first.

Silly Willy gets lots of publicity for his false Veteran Status, see below:

Here is a photograph of Willy and "his" downed helicopter that he purports to have been flying in Vietnam aged 19 years.


No person by the name of Bruce served with the RAAF 9 Squadron in Vietnam and in any case there has never been a person in the RAAF who has qualified to fly a helicopter at the age of 19 years let alone fly in a combat zone. Bruce is not listed on the Australian Vietnam Veterans Nominal Roll. Notice that he claims to have sustained an injury in Vietnam that ended his Service career.

9 Squadron was the only unit that employed Australian and New Zealand helicopter pilots in Vietnam. The 9 Squadron Association have never heard of Bruce and have provided a complete list of personnel who served in Vietnam with that unit and Bruce is not included.

We requested Bruce's RAAF file through the Freedom of Information system and we are not surprised to learn that Bruce does not have an RAAF file.

 


If Bruce were to ever return to Australia he could be charged under the Defence Act 1903 Part VII Sections 80A and 80B for Falsely claiming to be a returned Veteran and Wearing Medals that were not conferred.

We declare Willy Bruce to be a liar, fraud, wannabe and con man. A man who would lie to those he calls his friends is a sham without conscience. He has grossly insulted Australian and New Zealand Veterans and we are sure that Canadian Veterans will feel the same way.

We would very much appreciate an update on this mans activities from any person who has had the misfortune to meet him.

Falsely claim to be an Australian Veteran in any part of the world and there is a chance you will join Willy Bruce as a liar fraud and wannabe on this web site for ever more.

 

UPDATE - WILLY BRUCE - 14 May 14

In our original exposure of the Canadian Willy Bruce the lying cheat and wannabe, we wrongly identified one of his medals as being the Australian Defence Medal, when in fact it is the Canadian Queens Jubilee medal. From a distance and considering that he was wearing Australian Vietnam Campaign medals the Jubilee medal is almost identical with the ADM.

Here is what we named the medal as. Australian Defence Medal


And here is what it actually is. Canadian Jubilee Medal.

We hope that Canadian Veterans Associations are taking action against Bruce for his deceit, when information is to hand we will provide another update.


UPDATE WILLY BRUCE - 20 JUNE 2014

Willy Bruce no longer beats the drum. The Canadian Aboriginal Veterans and Serving Members Association (CAV) have taken decisive action against this long term lying fraud. Not only is he a fake Veteran of the Vietnam war but is also a fake Native American.

Below are letters from the CAV, firstly requesting Bruce to produce evidence of his service, and secondly, due to his failure to do so, a letter expelling him from the CAV.

This action is proof to all liars, frauds and wannabes that Veterans across the world have the ability to unite and expose those who steal their honour

Willy Bruce

Mr. Bruce, not having received any communications requested from you regarding the matter brought to your attention on May 12th 2014 notably the allegations being made by The Australia & New Zealand Military Imposters group (ANZMI) based in Australia.

The CAV has provided you with multiple avenues of contact and an opportunity in time of over thirty days with a grace period of several days to reply:

1) To provide Proofs of Military Service meaning all document held such as Australia Defence Force (ADF) Discharge Papers, ADF Medical Records, Administrative Documents, or obtainable Documents held elsewhere including military photos of the Viet Nam War era featuring yourself and others jointly in a photo.

2) Proofs of Military Service also include the contact information of fellow ADF Veterans served with in Australia or Viet Nam.

A search today under your name (Bruce) on The Australia & New Zealand Military Imposters group (ANZMI) Web Site indicates to us that the Allegations made there still stand as being Valid because it is apparent that you have not provided the ANZMI or the CAV any evidence of Military Service in Australia or anywhere else for that matter.
www.anzmi.net/index.php/component/sobipro/?pid=62&sid=410:Bruce

Mr. Bruce, it is apparent that you are not a Veteran of Military Service or a ADF Veteran of the Viet Nam War, the expectations are that you will henceforth conduct yourself as a Civilian and totally refrain from presenting yourself as a Military Veteran, wearing any military style clothing, and making a pretends of being a ADF Veteran.

As a Non Veteran there is a requirement for you to return the “Canadian Aboriginal War Veterans Millennium Medal” presented to you in year 2000 and any other Aboriginal Veterans medallions and Uniform Kit items that are in your possession to the CAV at the Address provided herein.

Mr. Bruce, your Biography available on the internet mentions that “He was unsure of the benefits or disadvantages of "coming out" as an Aboriginal person in the working world” and goes on further to say “However, Willy was inspired to share his native culture with fellow employees when he heard the beating of a drum at a traditional native ceremony at NRCan”.
There is no following statement of which Culture was being referred to and there is no evidence of you being a member of a First Nation or a Métis Nation.

In consideration of the void of documents and other proof of being Aboriginal there are reasonable grounds to suspect that your claim of being Aboriginal is also a pretence.

Mr. Bruce, you are often seen in military style dress and wearing a “Warriors Brest Plate and Shield” from the Plains Culture, there is no evidence noted anywhere that you are a member of a Warriors Societies of the Great Plains Tribes, discontinue this practise, it is an affront to those Societies and their Military Service and War Veterans.


Mr. Bruce, you are not welcome to conduct or attend any event held at the National Aboriginal War Veteran Monument in Ottawa now or at any time in the future.

This matter will receive wide distribution, the Canadian legal system has not been searched for Laws governing the impersonation of a Veteran of Military Service or a War Veteran of an Allied Military Force.

Reports of the continuation of the your impersonation of a Military Veteran of any kind will cause the CAV to seek legal Council on this matter.

CAV - National Executive
