Statement on behalf of the Duffy family
31 October 2011
Bryce was an exceptional man and a dedicated officer who was an inspiration not only to us, but also to his peers and the men and women he served alongside.
He was a Churchie (former student of the Anglican Church Grammar School), a rower, a surfer, a fisherman, a scuba diver and a much loved member of a very proud military family.
He was forever the consummate professional, extremely competent and very well respected by his colleagues and commanders.
He was passionate about what he did, truly believed in his cause, and always strived to serve his country in the best way possible.
He held long career aspirations in the Army, having recently completed the SAS selection course and looking forward to joining their ranks in the near future.
We loved Bryce to the ends of the world and not a day will go by where he is not thought of.
We now request the media to respect our privacy at this very difficult time and provide us with the time and space to grieve.
We will not be making any further comment and thank the media and community for their understanding.
