About this itemAustralian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) Unit Plaque - top quality in mint condition, still in original box, measuring a large 20.CM x 17.CM.
The Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) was a specialist unit of the Australian Army that operated during the Vietnam War. Raised in 1962, the unit was raised solely for service as part of Australia's contribution to the war in Vietnam, providing training and assistance to South Vietnamese forces. It is believed to be the most decorated Australian unit to serve in Vietnam with members of the unit receiving over 100 decorations, including four Victoria Crosses, while it was in existence. The unit was disbanded in late 1972 when Australia ended its commitment to the war.
In July 1966 the Commanding Officer of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam, Lieutenant Colonel A.J. Milner gave WO2 Laurie Nicholson the task of designing a badge for the Team.
