Go here and you
will see the personal data that she displayed on
colquhoun\personaldata.htm The absolute
drivel is there for you all to see. The facts
are that there are two Duchesses of Argyll at
present. Eleanor, the current Duchess and Iona,
the Dowager Duchess. There is no Patricia
Iona, Duchess of Argyll, except in the mind of
this impostor. CPMH have informed London
Peerage of this impostor who in turn have contacted
the real Duke of Argyll, so no doubt there will be a
knock on the door of our lovely Patricia in the near
future. Her home town of Canberra, our
National Capital incidentally, is also the
home town of the Australian Federal Police. A
short trip around the block won't take them long when
the formal complaint is lodged.
Our Patricia was very bold with her internet site
and also had a chat session set up where she could
tell all who cared to contact her just how good and
"Royal" she was. It was unfortunate that
several of those who began to chat with her were genuine Viet Nam Veterans and the
plans for a well laid ambush were set.
check of service records show that there was a
person of her surname who served in Viet Nam,
however that's where the similarity stops. She
is no doubt an avid reader, this apparently
being where she obtained all the information about
the Duchess of Argyll and her stories about being a
nurse in Viet Nam. Naturally CPMH checked with
the Australian Army Nursing Corps and also with the
Australian Civilian Nurses who were in Viet Nam to
verify this persons service, but alas, she was never
She states that
on her arrival in Viet Nam she drove to Vung Tau in
the "pink Citroen we all used". Members
of the Nursing Corps will be familiar with this
vehicle, however to drive from Sai Gon, now Ho Chi
Minh City, to Vung Tau
in this vehicle in December 1969, unescorted, is
absolute rubbish. Patricia also claims
that she was a Private nurse, another mistake as all
our nurses were of commissioned rank.
Her knowledge of "things Viet Nam" asked of her by
the Veterans could not be answered satisfactorily as she
had obviously not read the right books and I can
assure her that our seriously wounded brothers were
not sent to civilian hospitals in-country to be
cared for by the Red Cross. In response to
another question posed to her about her service she
responded with, "I only did my job and all the credit
should go to those who were on the front line and
that's why I never want my name in print in
publications about Viet Nam." The fact here is
she can't have her name in print as she wasn't there.
This page is about as far as she is ever going to go
with her claims of Veteran status and having her
name in print.
Anzac Day in
Canberra had former service persons searching the
ranks for her so that they could go and have a chat.
Surely someone that was as proud of her service, see here,
colquhoun\vietnam service.jpg would have been
out and in the ranks with all the other proud nurses
who marched on this day. Not our Patricia, as
she had been emailed by CPMH and was much more
interested in changing the information on her web
site to read as per here,
colquhoun\vietnam service amended.jpg
and then hiding, instead of
marching in the ranks. Panic was
now setting in. She had been caught out.
We know she read our email to her address here,
as we received both a delivery and read
receipt......but no reply was forthcoming.
As stated there is no evidence or service record available
under the 30 year act to show any service for
Patricia. Through the "old boy" network that
exists within the Australian Veterans and Military
community it has been established by CPMH that Patricia did
do some Army Reserve Service in the 1980's.
This amount of service would equate to her learning
enough to be able to tie up her boots and attend a
evening's parade every now and then. This
service was with a medical unit and perhaps this is
where she gathered her Viet Nam experiences,
standing at the bar at the completion of the nights
training, listening intently to the stories of the
senior cadre staff members.
30 JUNE 2003. It would
seem that Patricia just cant help herself with her
lies. She has now changed her site and you
will find the new one here.
Just in case
Patricia realises we have caught her out again and
tries to change her Military history, this
is how her military history is, as she claims, on her new
site shown above, as at 30 June 2003.
COLQUHOUN, DUCHESS OF ARGYLL, is a fraud on both
there is one corps that deserves protection by all
ex servicepersons it is our Nursing Corps. The
dedication of the men and women of this corps is
greatly appreciated by all troops, especially those
who were wounded in action. Some of the front
line troops that were CASEVAC'd back to the
hospitals with wounds, died in the arms of these
outstanding men and women.
These are haunting memories for them to live with for the rest
of their lives. No wonder they were up in arms
about the stories put out by this bogus Veteran.
When their representatives were contacted about
Patricia, they in their own caring way, simply
stated that she must be a very lonely person to
concoct stories like this. Lonely she shall be
no more. She is now a famous Veteran, albeit,
bogus, on this her eternal page. This page is
not easily removed from the internet like her own
To serve this country proudly in war
is something only the genuine serviceperson can do.
Those that claim it falsely WILL be exposed in the
long term. We are but a small Defence or ex
Defence community and word of mouth can always
confirm if you served.
This entry is one of the growing
number that will be forwarded to Federal Authorities
for prosecution once the proposed new fines and
sentences shown on our opening pages are in place.
