    The Long Shadow

    This is a book written by Peter Yule , published 2020.

    It is about Australiaís Vietnam Veterans since the War.

    All the services are mentioned , including , so far anyway H.M.A.S. Sydney,Hobart, Perth, Brisbane, Voyager.

    I know there are ex service personnel on this forum, and wonder if anyone contributed to this book, which apart from a couple of dubious little vignettes, is an excellent tome.

    That is all

    Voyager? She didn't take part in the RAN's role in Vietnam, AFAIK. She was sunk early in 1964. Be interested in why she is mentioned. Maybe Bob or NavyDiver can shed some light.

    This is all you need to know about the RAN in Vietnam. From Gun Plot.

    Iím pretty sure the dinosaurs died out when they stopped gathering food and started having meetings to discuss gathering food

    A bookshop is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking

    Oops! Absolutely correct Tins.

    I should have typed Vendetta , Voyager has a brief mention , in reference to a survivor of Voyager serving on Sydney.

    That is a good study you put up Bob. Except for the map of Tasmania omitted in the headlines.

    Please correct this anomaly Sir
