    The Vietnam Veteran Polo honours those who served, suffered and lost their lives in the Vietnam War between 1962-1973.

    Australia’s military involvement in the Vietnam War began with the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) in South Vietnam during July and August 1962. Participation in the war ended in January 1973, however, this has officially been amended to April 1975 to reflect Australia’s further involvement during the fall of Saigon in 1975.

    The Vietnam War remains the longest operational commitment of Australian forces. This hand-drawn, one-of-a-kind and historically reflective design captures the journey of soldiers during this controversial and divisive war.

    Australia’s commitment to the Vietnam War consisted predominantly of army personnel, however a significant number of air force and navy personnel as well as some civilians also served and sacrificed. Amidst a sea of palm trees, helicopters and iconic aircraft whir overhead. Historical machinery and equipment, such as RAAF’s Bell UH Iroquois helicopter, nicknamed Huey (or Bushranger), the twin-engined Caribou and Canberra bomber.

    As many Vietnam Veterans today reflect, artillery played an important role in grounds operations. This commemorative shirt also features Australian battle tanks, Centurion Mk.5/1. A soldier stands inside the hatch and salutes. Army personnel kneel below in single file with a Multi-Purpose Canine (MPC). To pay tribute to the dogs that joined Australia’s involvement, often assisting to track enemy troops, particularly those who were wounded and leaving a blood trail. As well as locating bunkers and tunnels.

    The Royal Australian Navy commitment to the Vietnam War was extensive and prolonged, ranging from warships patrolling the coastline (such as HMAS Hobart as displayed) to logistic support vessels and clearance diving teams. As featured on this Vietnam Veteran polo.

    My hubby truly loves it considering he was there fighting in 1968 thank your company so much for making the items for the ones that went


    My Dad served in Vietnam. This shirt makes me a little emotional. It was fabulous reading what each picture depicts about that war. Well done. Also love the quality of the shirt. I am actually giving this shirt to my older Brother as a birthday gift in a couple of weeks. I can't wait for his response. I'm sure he will love it as much as I.

    We loved reading your review and hope your brother loves his birthday present. Thank you for taking the time to let us know how happy you are with your purchase.

    Theresia Timson

    One star missing because 161 Indep. Recce Flight helicopter 🚁 was missing. That Unit is nearly always overlooked, yet their contribution was as vital in the war as all other units.

    Thank you for the feedback, Theresia. We do try to include as many images as possible for an accurate depiction. I have passed your concern along to our design team for consideration in future versions of this design.

    We hope you like the quality and fit of your polos otherwise. :)

    Vietnam Veterans polo with pocket

    Good quality and sizing. The process from order to delivery was excellent.
    Surprised the pocket is on the right hand side. Unusual.

    Thanks for the feedback David, we are considering changing up the side that the pocket is on for future collections.

    So glad you love the quality, sizing and service. :)
