The second Naval Studies Group seminar marking the 50th anniversary of RAN involvement in the Vietnam War will be the RAN Helicopter Flight in Vietnam. The seminar will be held in the Fleet Air Arm Museum at Nowra from 1300 – 1715 on Monday 16 October, as part of the RAN HFV reunion.
The Seminar will focus on the flying operations of the HFV and of those who flew in Vietnam with No. 9 Squadron RAAF. It will also examine the challenges of operating in an unfamiliar environment in wartime. Importantly, the Seminar will consider the experiences of the families waiting at home and of the HFV members’ readjustment to life after their tours in Vietnam. Speakers will include Australian and US aircrew and ground crew veterans of the Vietnam War.
