The Vietnam War, 1965 to 1972 was mainly a ground war, but for the 13,500 members of the RAN who saw active service it was undoubtedly a high tempo environment.
The RAN’s contribution, although small in comparison to that of the United States Navy (USN), was diverse and played a significant part in the Australian Defence Force’s overall commitment.

Captain Derbidge will describe the commitment of RAN fleet and air units to that War and the variety of essential tasks and services they provided in support of both the ground and air war.
