In Vietnam, 1966, a small group of Australian soldiers battled their way into the history books at Long Tan. Theirs is not the only remarkable story of bravery from that year.

The latest exhibition at the National Vietnam Veterans Museum, Unsung Stories features the little-known story of Private John Densley and his mother Christina, flown by the Australian Government to her son’s bedside in Saigon when a sniper’s bullets nearly took his life, and the tragic tale of Private Errol Noack, controversially, the first conscript soldier to die.

In October 2016, Australia Post honours Vietnam veterans with a series of stamps and collectors’ products created with the support of the NVVM to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan.

The Museum is now proud to present an exhibition of the original documents and artefacts behind these products.

The exhibition will run from 19 October 2016 to 30 April 2017.

Venue: National Vietnam Veterans Museum.
