101st Field Battery, Royal Australian Artillery MemorialPrint Page Print this page

101st Field Battery, Royal Australian Artillery Memorial commemorates officers and men who served with the unit in the Vietnam War.

The 101st Field Battery served on two tours of duty in South Vietnam: the first in 1966 and 1967 and the second in 1969 and 1970. Its parent unit during both of its tours of Vietnam was the 1st Field Regiment.

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.
