Case Notes:

 UPDATE  19 JULY 2018

Graham Clyde Foan was dealt with eight years ago.  He was a pathological liar then and is still a pathological liar in 2018.  

 

Foan 1

 

When asked about his original entry to this web site  he responds with tedious lies.  Here is what he has recently placed on the Facebook of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Police Association.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN.

It has come notice to notice (sic) that some members are questioning information found on an offensive indiscriminate website which falsely and without judicial notice attempts to degrade and accuse military personnel of unchallenged innuendo and rumor. (sic)

In my matter the site was used in an attempt to discredit me following a fraud and corruption investigation into the hierarchy of the Vietnam Veterans Association and the NSW RSL.

The documents presented were challenged and found to be fake including the photographs.

The complainants were the subject to Civil Court proceedings, all but one settled out of court after the court ruled in my favor (sic) with full quantum awarded to me. The remaining defender, Austin Connor, (ex RAAF WOFF) was found to be the principal perpetrator. He committed suicide prior to his court proceedings and without quantum, a Caveat was taken out on his properties by my QC.

Even though I was vindicated it has taken a toll on both mental and physical health. I hope this may put to rest the innuendo and rumor (sic) and explain a little of what was falsely portrayed in a vain attempt to discredit me.

There is no evidence that Foan was ever involved in a fraud and corruption investigation regarding Vietnam Veterans Association and New South Wales Returned and Services League (RSL).

None of the documents or photographs used in our initial entry were fake.  Except those forged by Foan himself.

There were no Civil Court proceedings in response to our original entry.  If there were Civil Court proceedings he should produce documentary evidence.

The late Ex Warrant Officer Austin Connor, a 9 Squadron Vietnam Veteran had never been associated in any way with ANZMI and there was never any litigation.

Foan disgracefully claims that Connor committed suicide as a result of litigation won by Foan, that is a lie.  Ex Warrant Officer Austin Connor died of natural causes and his friends and relatives are less than pleased with Foan's lies

 

 

 

Graham Clyde Foan is an ex RAAF Military Policeman who joined the RAAF on the 4 February 1972.  He resides in Tenterfield, a country town in New South Wales. Foan has been suspected of being a wannabe for some time.  We are now in a position to advise the world that we have got Foan’s number and he is indeed a wannabe, who wears medals he is not entitled to wear.

 


The first photo shown was cropped from a group photograph taken at the Tenterfield Returned Services League (RSL) on 25 April 2009. The second was taken while Foan was a serving member of the RAAF
 
Foan was seen on ANZAC day 2009, Long Tan Day 2009 and Remembrance Day 2009 wearing a hefty rack of six or seven medals, including the Vietnam Medal and the Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. In addition we are reliably advised he was wearing a Police Medal. 
 
At an RSL dinner on ANZAC day 2009 a group photo was commissioned. Foan was wearing “his” medals on his shirt, before the photo session he removed the medals and sat in for the photo. The photo above showing Foan in a shirt with no medals was cropped from a group photo at the dinner all of the others in the photo were wearing their medals.
 
In addition last Remembrance Day as soon as the cameras came out off came Foan's medals. It is assumed that as an ex Service Policeman he believes that photographic evidence would be needed to prove him to be a wannabe. We do of course prefer photographic evidence however we have in our possession Statutory Declarations concisely describing Foan and his medal antics at three commemorative functions this year.


Here is an extract from two of the numerous Statutory Declarations in our possession:


 


 
We are also reliably advised that Foan claimed to have earned his Vietnam medals with 9 Squadron in Vietnam in 1973/74.  The official Australian War Memorial history of 9 Squadron RAAF is found here:  http://www.awm.gov.au/units/unit_11035vietnam.asp 
 
The final paragraph of the official history is shown below:
 
“9 Squadron flew its last mission in Vietnam on 19 November 1971. In December the squadron’s 16 Iroquois took off from Vung Tau for the last time and landed on the deck of the Sydney for the return trip back to Australia.”
 
Graham Foan has failed to study his RAAF history before manufacturing his lies to cover his fraudulent activity, he was not even serving in the RAAF when 9 Squadron flew onto the deck of HMAS Sydney on their departure from Vietnam in December 1971. He did not enlist until 4 Feb 1972. A copy of his Attestation Form is shown below, note in paragraph 10 of the document there is a question as to whether Foan has ever served before in the Navy, Army or Air Force.  Foan has answered “NO” to the question.

 
In addition we have a Nominal Roll of all person who served with 9 Sqn in Vietnam. Foans name does not appear in the alphabetical listing.

 
When Foan applied to join the RAAF he listed his civilian occupations prior to enlistment. The extract from his application to enlist shows that Foan was employed in civilian occupations for the whole period of the Vietnam War. From 1964 to 1971. 


Graham Foan is from a country town where everyone knows everyone else. As far as Foan’s future interaction with the veteran community is concerned we should think he has well and truly “shot himself in the foot”.
 
As we have no photo of the medals Foan has been wearing we are not able to comment beyond the two Vietnam medals, however he has been wearing a Police medal of some kind.  An Overseas Police medal was given to Australian Federal Police Officers for service in Timor and the Solomons and perhaps some other theatres.  Those who have received these medals are all listed on the web site “Its an Honour” See here http://www.itsanhonour.gov.au/  Foan’s name is not listed.
 
Under the Defence Act 1903 people falsely wearing military medals are liable for prosecution with a fine of up to $3,300 and jail for six months or both. Much to the chagrin of the Veteran community the Australian Federal Police (AFP) are not interested in bringing wannabes to justice. We know the AFP don’t give a damn about the illegal activities of Military wannabes, perhaps they may feel a bit differently when their service and honour is being slighted.
 
Graham Clyde Foan of Tenterfield is not so good on RAAF history and not so good at pretending to be a Vietnam Veteran, on commemorative occasions he stood out like a red flag for his strange behaviour including the removal of medals whenever a camera appeared.
 
Foan was lousy at RAAF history, lousy at enacting the part of a fraud and now he has the honour of appearing as a lousy wannabe on our web site.

Update - The inimitable Graham Clyde Foan of Tenterfield

Our exposure of Foan dated the 27 January 2010 exhibited photos of Foan wearing a gaggle of medals to which he has no entitlement. We have acquired copies of Foan’s Certificates of Service from both the RAAF and the Army.  The certificates show Foan as a “Virgin” airman and a “Virgin” soldier.

We have some big surprises in store for Foan in the near future, in the meantime here are his certificates:

Graeme Clyde Foan – Update

We are advised that Foan is a past President of the Tenterfield RSL. So here is another crooked wannabe who pushed himself into a high position in an RSL to falsely prove he is the real deal.

Worst still, Foan is also a forger of Defence documents. Although the forgeries will withstand a cursory glance a detailed inspection reveals the work of an amateur forger.

The documents shown below contain the following flaws:

  1. Medals are listed that he did not earn – VM VCM and UNM

  2. Lists places where he did not serve - Vietnam, Thailand, Ismailia, Hong Kong and the United States. Ismailia is a small town on the Nile River in Egypt, no one of Foan’s age has ever served there. We believe Foan meant to say Somalia.

  3. Misspelled “Overseases Service” sic

  4. Misspelled “Comendations” sic

 

We are reliably advised that Department of Defence is investigating the forgeries. Foan is a sly and dogged shyster who refuses to admit his criminal activity of wearing medals he is not entitled to, and the forgery of documents.  Day by day Foan is being forced into a corner and we believe he has now offended sufficient organisations to be held to account for his actions.

 

 

This is published in the public interest, particularly that of the Vietnam Veteran Community. All information presented here is fact and the truth. Reports from private citizens are supported by statements of fact and statutory declarations.
