Vietnam Veterans' Day Service

Friday 17th August 2018


The Town will be commemorating the 52nd anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan, and all those who served in Vietnam, at a service to be held at the Bassendean War Memorial, corner Guildford Road and Wilson Street, Bassendean, at 10.30am on Friday 17 August.

Some 60,000 Australian military personnel served during the war, from 1962 to 1975, and by the time the last combat troops left Vietnam, 521 Australians had lost their lives and several thousand had been wounded, many of whom were conscripts.

Mr Richard Williams, State President of the Vietnam Veterans’ Association of Australia (WA Branch), will provide the Address at the service, and we look forward to welcoming you at the event.
