a quick way to search online using a surname, full name or service number if you have it. The search results include service number, enlist date & demob date, units served with & any decorations awarded. Its quite basic but perhaps a good place to start & comes as a natty certificate that can be printed out.

The site also includes links to other Vietnam Vet organisations in Australia who may be of more assistance.

If anyones interested, similar facilities exist for WWI & II, & Korean War.

Hope this helps for a start.

Re: Service Records - The Australian National Archives will be able to get hold of the records of deceased members for you, although I believe post 1945 records are held by the Army in Melbourne. (photocopies are sent up for you)

Worth a try,

http://www.naa.gov.au/

Postwar Army service records are held by the Soldier Career Management Agency (SCMA) in Victoria. To access these records please complete the form below. The National Archives will then request the file from SCMA on your behalf. The personnel file, if located, will be transferred to the National Archives’ Melbourne office temporarily. Due to the number of inquiries received, this process may take up to three months.

Once the file has been received we will send you a quote for the provision of an online copy or a photocopy. You may also choose to the view the record in the Melbourne reading room of the National Archives.
