Repatriation of Remains

“The Director of the Office of Australian War Graves is currently arranging the repatriation of the remains of soldiers who were buried in Terandak Cemetery, Malaysia during the Vietnam War.

A number of 1 RAR soldiers are included in those to return and a repatriation ceremony will be held at RAAF Richmond later this year in early June. While the ceremony will be closed to the general public in accordance with contemporary ADF practices, there will be an opportunity for selected Vietnam veterans to be present at RAAF Richmond to observe the arrival and unloading of the aircraft as well as form a guard of honour as the hearses departs the Base.

There are significant administrative details to be completed prior to the occasion and if any VSC member wishes to attend the ceremony please contact office admin staff for precise requirements.”
