    Is there anyone out there, Vietnam Vet., who is planning to travel to Vietnam for the ANZAC Day Service at Long Tan ?   This info is required on the chance that there could be a meeting of Vets and crew from the Te MANA, which will be in Ho Chi Minh City for ANZAC Day.

  • 16 Fd Regt are planning a Regimental Memorial between RHQ and the Regt parade ground. The Memorial will list those KIA and died whilst on active service for both Korea and Vietnam, and any other active service/warlike operations.
