Officer Training Unit ScheyvillePrint Page Print this page

The plaque commemorates the graduates of the Officer Training Unit Scheyville and those who were killed in Vietnam.

The banner of the now disbanded Officer Training Unit of National Servicemen from nearby Scheyville is held in the church. The graduation services for the Unit were held in St Matthew`s Church.

Australia's military involvement in the Vietnam War began with the arrival of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962.  Australia's participation in the war was formally declared at an end when the Governor-General issued a proclamation on 11 January 1973.

However, the end-date of Australia's involvement in the Vietnam War has officially been amended to 29 April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement in the war during the fall of Saigon in 1975.  The Department of Veterans Affairs and the Australian War Memorial, in Canberra now recognise this new date.
