Summary
  • This book originated in a half-day seminar conducted jointly by the Australian Centre for the Study of Armed Conflict and Society (ACSACS) and the Sea Power Centre Australia (SPCA). The focus of the seminar was 1965 and the Navy's readiness for operations in Vietnam..The book is intended to be the first in a series of fiftieth anniversary retrospectives on the Royal Australian Navy in the Vietnam Conflict. Future seminars will include the service of the Adams Class guided missile destroyers (DDGs) and HMAS Vendetta on the Vietnam Gun Line and in the Mekong Delta; the impact of the 'friendly' attack on HMAS Hobart off Tiger Island in 1968 and the sinking of USS Frank E Evans after a collision with HMAS Melbourne in 1969; the contribution of the Clearance Diving Branch and the Helicopter Flight Vietnam; the service of Sydney and the escorts vessels between 1966 and 1972; and, the commemoration of the Navy's efforts in Vietnam since the end of the conflict in 1975.
