  4. Hello, I am the sister of Raymond Reginald Kickett who was in Vietnam with 7RAR. I would like some photos of him in Vietnam and to hear from anyone who served with him. He has now passed but I don’t have any pictures of him in Army greens and would love to get some. I miss him very much, he was special.

    1. Hello, Raymond Reginald Kickett was my uncle and i would like to see photos of him during his time with 7RAR if possible, or even to hear or read any information relating to his service.

  5. Deeply saddened at the passing of a good comrade and mate, Jim Feeney – 9 Platoon, 1st Tour Vietnam – 21/8/2014.

    Do you need more info I could possibly help if needed?.

  8. I noticed my brothers name does not appear on your vale list; his name is Ian Walter Johnston s/n 42764 and was a member of 7 RAR I think from around the time of his, 2nd tour of Vietnam which was from 10/02/70 to 8/10/70. Some of your older members who were around then may remember a single vehicle MV accident on the road into Kapooka on 31/08/1971 in which he was driving a GTHO Falcon at very high speed and was killed as a consequence. I would love to hear from any of those that served with Ian, (‘Johnno’ to his mates). I think he was still a sergeant at the time he died.

    1. Andy,
      Sorry about Ian not being on the Vale list but I simply didn’t know. A lot of the entries are made because of people like yourself leaving a comment so thanks.
      All fixed now

    2. Hello Andy, thanks for the information regarding your brother. I am doing some research on 7RAR and had great trouble matching your brother’s DVA Nominal Roll entry to the 7RAR War Diaries where he is shown as the Transport Sergeant for the Battalion. The DVA Nominal Roll shows him as a member of the Royal Australian Armoured Corps and only a Lance Corporal. I suggest you go to the DVA site and give them some feedback to get the entry corrected. The entry should reflect his last rank held in Vietnam and the Corps he was in at the time. The DVA record reads as follows: Veteran Details

  10. Hi
    Thanks for the site. My brother James Michael Shreeve appears in your list of members who have passed. Just to complete his entry he died on June 28, 2001. He appeared on the cover of the Sydney Morning Herald boarding a plane for Vietnam. I can’t find the picture in SMH archives and wonder if you know 0f a resource that I could search for it.

    Very proud of all of you

    1. I AM SORRY TO HEAR OF JAMES PASSING. I MET HIM IN PUKAPUNYAL JUST BEFORE WE WENT ON OUR FINAL LEAVE IN SYDNEY BEFORE BOARDING THE HMAS SYDNEY FOR OUR TRIP TO VIETNAM. AS HE HAD NOT BEEN IN SYDNEY BEFORE HE STAYED WITH ME AT MY PARENTS HOME IN MAROUBRA NEAR MAROUBRA BEACH. HE HAD A DESIRE TO SEE KINGS CROSS SO WE HAD A GOOD NIGHT THERE SEEING EVERYTHING WE COULD , WE HAD A GOOD TIME FOR YOUNG BLOKES I WAS 19 AT THAT STAGE. WE THEN WENT TO THE SHIP WHICH THEY HAD NICK NAMED “THE VUNG TAU FERRY”. THE PHOTO FROM THE SMH WOULD HAVE BEEN ON HIS RETURN IN 67 OR 68. HOPE THIS HELPED. DOC

  11. Hello. Just wondering if anyone remembers my dad from Vietnam. Name was Ian Somerville Stamp. He passed away in 1994 & would never talk about his time there. Carolyn

    1. Hello Carolyn,

      A bit of info for you re your dad; he was 3789491 Pte I A Stamp and served with 7RAR on its first tour of South Vietnam.
      I suggest you try and contact some of the RAR veterans from the various battalions via a local RSL sub branch, to spread the word that you seek info on your father, a 7 RAR soldier. Perhaps the AWM could help, as it is possible to obtain a Certificate of Service via their website.
      Regards
      Jim Johnstone 2nd Tour Veteran

  14. 2 Lt Brendan Obrien appears to be missing from the list. Brendan was one of the first National Service officers to graduate and spent his whole service with 7 Bn, incl most of the first tour. Returned to Australia and returned to Uni, working nights at Tullamarine to pay for it. Apparently fell asleep on the way to work one night and died as a result of the crash.
