Angola Consul General
1972- Israel Consul General
In 1972 Dr. Charles Fincham, as a senior foreign affairs officer, left South Africa for Israel shortly to open the new Consulate General in Tel Aviv. "In September 1972, Israel abstained from a UN vote to grant the ANC observer status, just a few days after the Israeli foreign ministry had informed South African Consul-General Charles Fincham that their government would be more accommodating to his country at the United Nations."
Charles Fincham reported to his superiors in 1978: “I feel that we should be very aware of the kind of goodwill which ex–South African Jews assist in building up for us here [in Israel].”
He attended the 1984 meeting of Le Cercle, and is credited as "Ambassador (rtd.) S.A. Institute for International Affairs".
