Seeking photos from the Vietnam War

I am a Vietnam veteran author planning to republish my book "NASHO" in 2017 (first published in the 1980's). The book was about National Service and the Vietnam War and I am seeking unpublished, interesting photos taken during the war to include in the book. Email or post (with brief details) to

2017 Domestic and Overseas Commemorations

Mr Tehan said “As a nation we continue to honour the service and sacrifice of the men and women who have served in defence of our nation, It is incredibly moving to stand on a foreign field where Australians have fought and died for our values and reflect on the enormous debt we owe to the men and women who serve in our military. Many Australians will be planning overseas trips this year to attend a commemoration service and pay their respects and I encourage them to register early.”
