NOTICE – 1st tour Vietnam 105 Field Battery Members

REISSUE OF THE UNIT CITATION – CROSS OF GALLANTRY WITH PALM

The Australian Government Department of Defence, Honours and Awards has advised that the previously issued Republic of Vietnam Cross of Gallantry with Palm Unit Citation is incorrect as the Palm leaf should be Bronze, not Gold.

1st Tour 105th Field Battery RAA members who received the CGWP citation with the gold palm, wishing to exchange their citation for the bronze palm citation should return their existing citation for replacement.

Ensure full name, service number, address and contact details are included with the returned device.

The mailing address is:
Directorate of Honours and Awards
Exchange Citations
PO BOX 7952
Canberra BC ACT 2610

RECENTLY DECEASED

We sadly advise that Life Member Ken Summersford (Vietnam 1st Tour) recently passed away; and we have been recently advised that Life Member Peter Bradley (Vietnam 1st Tour) passed away in July 2020. May they rest-in-peace.
