Back in 2012, Elwyn Evans was sentenced to six years in prison for manufacturing automatic firearms in Canada.
Evans claims he was stunned to discover his property was home to a massive weapons operation, but jurors rejected that story in finding him guilty of running an illegal enterprise. The case revolves around an August 2006 police raid in Komarno, about 75 kilometres north of Winnipeg. Officers found 19 Sten submachine-guns, 121 Sten magazines and a homemade .50-calibre rifle. They also discovered three solid-steel pen guns — homemade weapons disguised as ballpoint pens.
Evans admits to being an expert at working with metals and that he would have been capable of assembling the guns in his shop. His life reads like a movie, including having his father killed in the Second World War, serving a stint as a paratrooper in the British Royal Air Force, becoming a Canadian citizen in 1971, losing a five-year-old son to a tragic house fire a few years later, being severely injured by a workplace accident in the 1990s and fighting skin cancer on three occasions.
According to our friends in Canada, he’s also a military phony;
He claims he served in 2 Squadron of the SAS and was taken POW in Vietnam however, Australian Government records tell a different story. The Aus SASR and the NZ SAS served in Vietnam, and there are legends that the UK SAS may have fought alongside them. However, there were No Diggers or Kiwis taken POW during the Vietnam War, and it isn’t a great stretch of the imagination to say that there were no UK POWs either. ELWIN / ELWYN EVANS of Teulon MANITOBA is just another just another poser who believes standing next to legitimate veterans, serving CF and RCMP members validates his claims…
Regardless of his claimed country of origin and service, Elwyn David Evans isn’t a recipient of the Military Cross (MC)! He’s rocking’ Sergeant’s rank badges, and during his time of his “service” in Vietnam only Officers below the rank of Major and Warrant Officers were eligible recipients… He’s not listed on any of the MC databases (UK, Aus, NZ). This dude is filthy lying sack of shit who has worn a pseudo-uniform adorned with bullshit insignia and spews tales of his adventures in SE Asia for a gullible audience!
