John was educated at the London Hospital - entering in 1900, he took the diplomas of M.R.C.S. and L.R.C.P. in 1906. After acting as house-surgeon of the Royal Victoria and West Hants Hospital at Bournemouth, he went into practice at West Southbourne. He was described to have been a gifted amateur musician, an excellent billiard player and cricketer, and an amateur mechanic of no mean order. John left his practice to become Senior Resident Medical Officer at Boscombe Military Hospital, although previously being rejected for military service on the grounds of health, he apply for a commission in the R.A.M.C. and was accepted. He was ordered to go to Egypt. Whilst on the journey to Egypt, his ship “Arcadian” was torpedoed, and he was forced to spend a night in an open boat. Immediately after he was rescued he developed scarlatina, then dysentery and eventually enteric fever, of which he died from haemorrhage. John was the son of John A and Agnes Foreman; and the husband of E M Foreman of 30 Palace Mansions, Addison Bridge, Kensington, London. They had 3 children. A fellow student of the London Hospital wrote:- “I was some years senior to Foreman at the ‘London,’ but he remembered me, and I knew him well for the few years he was in Bournemouth (about four I think). He had a very promising future and was much liked and respected here. He was a clever and brilliant musician, and will be very much missed by some of us who knew him well.
