Surname: Tereva
Christian Names: Tui (aka) Malcohm
Country: Australia
State or Province: Queensland
City or Town: Brisbane
Service #: Nil
Service: Nil
Branch: Nil
Case Notes:

 

Mr "Maj" Tui Tereva also known as Malcolm Wiki is from the Cook Islands in the Pacific and now resides in Queensland Australia.  He is a "Love Rat" fraud who takes advantage of vulnerable ladies by claiming to be a very busy SASR operative who is constantly deployed on "missions".

 

Tereva

 

Perhaps he learned his trade from these two disgraceful human beings who already grace this web site for similar behaviour.

Tereva claims to be of the rank of "Major" in Army Engineers involved “In Special Activities”. 

 

Tereva2

 

He claims to be trained in hand to hand combat and will demonstrate by revealing  his concealed knife which is part of his belt buckle.  He "proves" his bona fides by giving his victims SASR “Coins” like this one below:

 

Tereva3

 

 

He also claims to have been trained by the SAS in the United Kingdom and the French Foreign Legion.  Like all liars and wannabes of this genre he claims to be “riddled” with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and suffers severe night terrors and states he "should not be approached when in the grips of an attack".

 

From January 2018 until July 2018 Tereva maintained a  charade of being deployed in Afghanistan. In fact, he was never in the Australian Army, never served with SASR and was never deployed to any war zone.  Since July he has disappeared, and we are sure he will reappear to further attempt his poorly researched deception. 

Surname: Meehan
Christian Names: Bryan Michael
Country: Australia
State or Province: Victoria
City or Town: Myrtlford
Service #: 3790016
Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Completion of service: 1968
Case Notes:

 

Bryan Meehan is Secretary of the Myrtleford, Victoria,  Returned and Services League (RSL).

 

Meehan1

 

Meehan wears five medals they are:

 

Australian Active Service Medal  (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Commemoration of National Service Medal (CNSM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal  (RVCM)  -  Not entitled

 

As an Infantry Soldier in Vietnam, Meehan certainly earned the first four medals, but he did not fulfil the requirements to wear the RVCM.  The requisites are clear and concise and cannot be changed because the medal was presented by the now non existent country, The Republic of Vietnam.  Here are the requirements:

 

Meehan

 

Meehan served for 154 days,  which is 27 days short of the required 181 days.  He was not medically evacuated as being a battle casualty.

 

Meehan

 

Meehan was contacted and he asserted that he was entitled to wear the medal because he had no leave whilst in Vietnam and the medal was endorsed on his Army Records. When asked to produce the certificate he refused to do so.  He was insistent about the matter and declined further discussion.

 

Perhaps those from the Myrtelford RSL can ensure that he becomes cognizant of the details for wearing the medal and make sure he removes the medal from his rack.

 

Meehan says he has worn the medal for fifty years, therefore fifty years ago, he would have purchased it and had it mounted on his rack. He knew then that it was not legitimate.

Surname: Lewsam
Christian Names: Geoffrey Charles
Country: Australia
State or Province: New South Wales
City or Town: Canley Heights
Service #: R53310
Service: Navy
Branch: Electrical Engineering
Commencement of service: 1957
Completion of service: 1963
Case Notes:

 

Geoffrey Charles Lewsam served as a Leading Seaman in the RAN.  During his service, he had active service with the Far East Strategic Reserve (FESR) with a trip to Malaysian waters. 

Lewsam

Lewsam wears:

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Australian Service Medal  (ASM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Pingat Jasa for service in Malaysian waters

Purchased "Tin" FESR medal   -  Not Authorised

Purchased "Tin" Commemorative Logistics medal for Vietnam - Not Authorised.

Lewsam is wearing four genuine medals and has added two "Tin" self purchased medals, here are the details of the two offending medals..

FESR Commemorative medal, self purchased for $65:

Lewsam

Vietnam Logistic Support Medal Commemorative medal self purchased for $60. It was a trinket to be worn on the right breast by RAN servicemen who had served in Vietnam waters. The whole thing was scrapped when an official Logistic Support medal was issued by the Government. Lewsam never served in Vietnam waters.

Lewsam3

Lewsam is the Vice President of the Canley Heights Returned and Services League (RSL).  In the lead up to ANZAC Days he visits local schools in his official capacity to talk about Australia's involvement in wars.  He is blatantly falsifying his service and portraying himself in a false manner. Wearing these two fake medals can only be for the purpose of massaging his ego.

His mate, Mr Richard Pritchard, the President of the Canley Vale RSL has failed to correct Lewsam's behaviour.  The President is a genuine Vietnam Veteran and is well aware of Lewsam's deceit, but  does nothing.

Although the behaviour of most ex service persons is unquestionable, ANZMI will continue to detect and report those who, for their own vanity choose to erode protocols and traditions.

We welcome Geoff Lewsam to the good ship ANZMI where he is welcomed as a crew member with a long time to serve.

Surname: Sykes
Christian Names: Larry Charles
Country: Australia
State or Province: New South Wales
City or Town: Moree
Service #: 220918
Service: Army
Branch: Engineers
Case Notes:

 

Larry Sykes was sent to Vietnam aged 23 years in 1971.  He served in Vietnam with RAE units from 4 September 1971 until 20 February 1972 which is 165 days.

 

Sykes  

 

Larry is wearing the following medals:

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM)

Australian Defence Medal (ADM)

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) -  Not entitled

 

He is wearing four medals and he has earned only three.  He did not earn the RVCM  because he did not serve in Vietnam for the required 181 days and was not returned to Australia as a Battle Casualty. 

 

Sykes

 

Here is the fake medal he is wearing:

 

Sykes

 

Notice also he is doing the ridiculous hand over the heart salute. For some reason that American tradition is creeping into Australian commemorative occasions. It is done by Americans when in civilian clothes when their National Anthem is played.

 

 It is not an Australian tradition and has been misinterpreted from the UK and Australian tradition of placing the right hand over medals.

 

 As lessened membership criterion in the RSL erodes long existing protocols, current non returned Executives increasingly don't have a clue about ceremonial traditions.  The "Hand over the heart" salute has no place in Australia.   Here is what is supposed to be happening:

 

Sykes 4

 

.

 

As an Army Engineer Sykes would have done some hard work in Vietnam, however he now wears a medal that he did not earn.  He would know the rules because he would have had to purchase the medal himself and add to his rack.

 

Larry Sykes is a medals cheat and very welcome to this web site.

 

 

Surname: Dale
Christian Names: Victor Churchill
Country: Australia
State or Province: Western Australia
City or Town: Coolgardi
Service #: 5411678
Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Case Notes:

 

Victor Churchill Dale wears a Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) that he did not earn.

 

Dale

 

Dale wears three medals they are:

 

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM)

Vietnam Medal (VM

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal. (RVCM)  -  Not Entitled

 

Here is the offending medal:

 

Dale 2

 

At ANZMI, we do not take into consideration excuses, or make value judgements. There are no grey areas, only black and white.  Should  any person flout laws and protocols regarding military service or the wearing of medals we will report them without fear or favour.  It is the readers responsibility to consider the extent of the offending.

 

Victor Dale did the hard yards as an Infantry Soldier in Vietnam with 1st Australian Reinforcement Unit (1ARU) from  7th June 1967 until 17 Jul 1967 and then with 7th Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (7RAR) from  18 July 1967 until 6 November 1971.  A total of 153 days.

 

Dale

 

To be eligible to wear the RCVM he needed to complete 181 days in Vietnam or be evacuated home as a Battle Casualty.  He did not complete the 181 days criterion and he was not a Battle Casualty.  He was medically evacuated after he developed tropical ulcers and cysts. He departed Vietnam on 6 November 1967 and after spending 7 days in a Military Hospital in Butterworth Malaysia, he was moved  on to  Sydney Australia.

 

Victor Dale is a respected Bush Poet and although we condemn him for wearing a false medal we are happy to advertise his work here:    http://www.victorchurchilldale.com.au/

 

All serviceman who served in Vietnam know the rules regarding the RVCM however there are many offenders listed on this website.  Our work does not weary them.

 

Be aware that if you falsely wear the RVCM or any other false medal it is likely that you will be noticed and then exposed on this website as a medals cheat.

 

Surname: Foan
Christian Names: Graham Clyde
Country: Australia
State or Province: NSW
City or Town: Tenterfield
Service: RAAF
Branch: Military Police
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:

 

 

9th Jul 2010

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.
