Sons of ANZAC’s
Vietnam Memorial Tour
In 2015 it will be the centennial of the landing at Anzac Cove and coincidentally a significant anniversary for Vietnam Veterans, being 50 years since the deployment of our first battle group. That deployment went on to last 10 years.
The synergy between the first ANZAC’s and Vietnam Veterans is that their grandfathers’
fought at ANZAC cove and WW1.
To commemorate this fact,we have approached the highly advocated ‘Mat McLachlan Battlefield Tours’ and LT.COL Gary Mckay (Retired), a prolific author, and historian on Vietnam. Mat and Gary will be tour leaders and lecturers, at the sites of Australia’s
At the Long Tan Cross there will be a significant memorial service honouring our
generations who have died in uniform for Australia.
Mat and his company have enthusiastically embraced this coming tour; and as an historian, he understands the significance associated with this event.
Matt’s company will arrange all of your travel arrangements and in country logistics. There will be a series of additional tours to see other areas of Vietnam, if desired.
It is envisaged, that an initial tour of approx 7 days will cover the ‘battlefield tour
experience’, with further options for you to understand Vietnam today.
Your assistance in spreading the word through your websites, and/or newsletter, would
be greatly appreciated.
