Re: RAN in Vietnam War (film)
In 1969 I spent two days aboard a RAN DD (A US Adams Class) as shown at the start of this film. It was operating off Da Nang providing fire support. I was a civilian contractor trouble-shooting their Loran receiver problem. They had a wrong antenna coupler. I was 27 years old.
Some b/w footage of RAN vessels in Vietnam... DDs providing gunfire support, and most interestingly, use of a CV as an equipment/troop transport (closing minutes).
