War Hero Imposter Up To His Old Tricks


Book Reviewer
I know, I know. Walt threads are dull.

However, our old chum Sir Alan McIlwraith has learned his lesson and is now walting as a magician who came second in the World Magician of the Year contest instead :D (magic walts?!) rather than as a war hero. Up in the world eh?

Link. Sunday Mail.

He is apparently quite good at it but seems unable to stop the lying. Pathetic creature really.
This lines a cracker:

But I have a strict rule for women - if one asks you back to hers after midnight, always say no - you'll be too drunk and she'll turn out to be a minger.


War Hero
Master Magician eh.

Looks like I'm the first to say it's a shame the the cnut hasn't made himself disappear then. :D
Was this the guy who was claiming to be a captain in the Para reg with an MC? He called himself 'sir captain *** MC', rather than Captain sir *** MC.
Dont know if it's the same bloke- the one I remember was in a news paper about 2005 and was a Para. IIRC his wife and in-laws all believed his tales. He was, literally, dining out on it getting invited to smart parties etc.


War Hero
Thats the one, he really needs to be burned at the stake.

Has anyone tried to get their CV taken seriously in and around Glasgow after this prize plonker started his rubbish. Ive even had macilwraith mentioned in an interview. :x :x :x :x :x

Edited to say: i have just looked at his Phot again and it gives me the rage!!!
Has no-one managed to 'catch up' with him for a 'chat', or has Glasgow changed these days?
Great idea for a magic trick

Let's get him in a box and get the big saw out

Then remind him, that you only read the first paragraph on the "cutting in half trick" but not to worry, you are sure you can blag it you are a magician
He faked a suicide attempt after getting a ribbing at work (when he finally turned up) (but that was the last place i heard of him, I have a mate who worked in the same dept) Noone has seen or heard of him until today.

I would love to get my hands on him. :twisted:
I'd say he has some serious mental health problems..

or maybe he's just a cnut.
What a tool. Still cant believe I was at school with the cnut. He was so thick...God knows how he managed to get away with it for so long.

Yeah? Well, he was my platoon commander in Nam. 8)
Crikey Rumpers! Were you out the same time I was then? Do you remember that bint in the Lucky Bar just around the corner from the US Embassy? She was McIlwraith's mum!
Cant plod do anything, legally, even if it is for an interview and an attitude re-adjustment. This twat is making a mockery of the military
its very clear this individual has a mental problem that obviously needs sorting , surely the authorities need to have him in for an assessment or some type of councelling, i know the guy deserves a shoeing of epic proportions on the back of his last escapade , im surprised he isnt in traction by now , the authorities should be monotoring him for his own safety, before he tries to take off in a 747 out of glasgow intrenational or something as equally dangerous
