  • I write the website about HMS Gambia at http://hmsgambia.org/ was looking for information about Bruce. He was interested in vintage and veteran cars and was a member of the Waikato Veteran and Vintage Car Club. They had a nice obituary of him in their October 2012 newsletter - https://wvvcc.co.nz/Oct2012.pdf
