The Vung Tau Ferry
This book - now in paperback - recognizes the major contribution of the many members of the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) whose dedicated service in the Vietnam war was ignored for so long. There were approximately 9,800 RAN personnel who - through dedication to the task for over seven years - transported, safely and on time, about 15,600 Army and RAAF personnel, along with many tons of weapons, stores, and equipment. This took place via 25 operational voyages that the HMAS Sydney and her escorting destroyers made to and from Vietnam. Both authors are veterans of this major Vietnam logistic operation. The Vung Tau Ferry was first published in hardback in 1998.
