Australia and the Vietnam War The Vietnam War was the longest twentieth century conflict in which Australians participated ; it involved some 60,000 personnel and grew from a limited initial commitment of 30 military advisers in 1962 to include a battalion in 1965 and finally, in 1966, a task force. Each of the three services was involved, but the dominant role was played by the Army.
Australia's Vietnam War

The 1st Australian Task Force (1 ATF) operated in Vietnam from 1966 through 1971. Some of its battles have become well-known to the public through film and literature. Many however, have not.

This website is the product of over twenty years of research. It provides unprecedented access to information on nearly all 1 ATF ground combat actions Australians fought in during the Vietnam War, numbering over 4,500. Through the use of modern Web technologies, veterans, researchers and the general public now have the power to understand the Vietnam War at a scale and depth not previously possible

Changi Art Our family have recently put my dad’s artwork he did in Changi as a POW, onto a website'

Dad always told me he had to paint to keep his sanity, I guess it was art therapy or diversional therapy before these were invented. Thus most of the artwork is the opposite to what he was living in and was meant cheer him and his mates up by having a laugh at the ridiculous.

Over 300 paintings have sat in dad’s cupboard for nearly 70 years and we thought it was too valuable and wished to share his work with others.

So, I was wondering if you could share the website with your members.

Kind regards from Adelaide,

Keith Bettany

The Casualty List for Australia and New Zealand in the Vietnam War

A great number of us know about the "Butcher's List": the 500-plus Australians and New Zealanders who were killed and died through various means during Australia's involvement in Vietnam during the period 1963 to 1973.

Very few of us know about those who were wounded, hurt and disabled during this period. The list that follows is an insight to the real human cost that Australia and Australians paid during our involvement in the Vietnam conflict.

The National Servicemen's Association of Australia

The National Servicemen's Association of Australia was founded in 1987 and now is the second largest ex-service organisation in the nation.

It represents the 287,000 young men called up for service in the Navy, Army and Air Force in two schemes between 1951 and 1972.
