Edited by Robert Ray and Max Speedy, The History of the Royal Australian Navy Helicopter Flight Vietnam (RANHFV) 1967 – 1971.
This collection of forty or so stories has been validated against reports of proceedings, flying log books and other official sources.
The book gives both a personal and graphic view, rather than a day by day blow of events. Soft cover, photographs.
Between October 1967 and June 1971, the four RANHFV year-long contingents of 45 or so integrated with the US Army’s 135th Assault Helicopter Company as an Experimental Military Unit (EMU) hence the title EMU Flight.
The 135th was one of 70 or more US Army helicopter companies in Vietnam and it was the 135th that initially introduced the “H” model Huey to the Vietnam theatre.
RAN pilots filled only about ten per cent of the company’s aircrew billets but contributed significantly more with their operational skills and experience.
Copies of the book can be ordered through the office. Cost is $30.00.
