On 29 July, 1948 Constable Graham was riding a police motor cycle outfit along the Bermagui-Cobargo Road.

At the time the constable was riding along an unfamiliar area in an effort to locate and apprehend a rape suspect.

As he was negotiating a sharp bend in the roadway, the cycle skidded in loose gravel, left the roadway and mounted an embankment. It then tipped over, pinning the constable beneath it.

Constable Graham was admitted to the Bega District Hospital suffering from internal injuries, including a ruptured kidney and concussion.

Over the ensuing years his health deteriorated due to the original injuries and he died on Thursday 25 April, 1958.

 

The constable was born in Tamworth in 1915 and joined the New South Wales Police Force on Saturday 14 June, 1947.

At the time of his death he was stationed at Bodalla.
