Summary
"The purpose of this book is to recognize the major contribution of those many members of the Royal Australian Navy whose dedicated service in the Vietnam war was for so long ignored. These are the approximately 9,800 RAN personnel who, through dedication to the task over seven years transported safely and on time about 15,600 Army and RAAF personnel, along with many tons of weapons, stores and equipment during the 25 operational voyages HMAS Sydney and her escorting destroyers made to and from Vietnam. The book includes: a nominal list of those who served, the dates and composition of the 25 Troop Transport Task Force groups that served in the operational area, and first hand accounts by sailors and soldiers who sailed in HMAS Sydney and the Escort Ships of the RAN, namely HMAS Melbourne, HMAS Anzac, HMAS Derwent, HMAS Duchess, HMAS Parramatta, HMAS Stuart, HMAS Swan, HMAS Torrens, HMAS Vampire, HMAS Vendetta and HMAS Yarra." -- Cover description.
