Vietnam Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll located on the Memorial Cross commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action during the Vietnam War between 1962 and 1972. Behind the cross is a bronze relief of a typical battlefield in Vietnam.

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.
