Welcome to the Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans.
The Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans lists approximately 61 000 men and women who served in the Royal Australian Navy (RAN), Australian Army and Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) in Vietnam, or in the waters adjacent to Vietnam, during the conflict between 23 May 1962 and 29 April 1975. You can seek information on these members using the Search function.
In response to changes in the criteria for the Vietnam Logistic and Support Medal (VLSM) in 2013, the Nominal Roll also includes RAAF personnel who served in Ubon, Thailand, between 25 June 1965 and 31 August 1968. Eligible personnel are encouraged to contact the Nominal Rolls team so that the list can be assembled.
This website also contains the names of more than 1 600 Australian civilians. These civilians were members of groups that were either included in the Veterans’ Entitlements Act 1986 or were eligible for a campaign medal. More information on civilian participants can be found on the Civilians page.
The Department of Veterans’ Affairs is compiling a list of those onboard HMA Ships Quickmatch and Vampire during the ships’ visit to Saigon between 25 and 29 January 1962. The ships’ lists for this period cannot be located and crew members are encouraged to contact the Nominal Rolls team so that the list can be completed. The names that have been identified so far are available on the HMA Ships Quickmatch and Vampire page.
The compilation of this Roll would not have been possible without the generous assistance provided by the records staff of the Australian War Memorial, Department of Defence and the National Archives of Australia.
Individuals are able to have their details excluded from the website. More detailed information about this, and the Roll, is available on the About this Nominal Roll page.
