Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 1964 Viet Cong attack Special Forces at Nam Dong

    I read this today and thought that it may be of some interest? For me, I found it interesting to note that the first Medal of Honour was awarded and also that an Australian military adviser was a casualty. I have to say, I didn’t know that Australia's involvement was that early!
  2. The Aussies supplied training teams and advisors at this time, receiving the clasp 'South Vietnam' on the GSM. The Vietnam service medal was introduced later when Australian and NZ forces were committed in unit form. :wink:
