VIETNAM WAR AUSSIE VIDEOS – ON YOUTUBE

Film posted by John Neervoort

I have posted a number of videos on Youtube of film that I took on 6RAR’s second tour in 1969-70. Each video is about 5 minutes long. There is no commentary, just appropriate sounds of aircraft/guns/armour and background music. I originally did these for the National Vietnam Veterans Museum so they could be used on a free standing TV operated by the viewer alongside the museum item on display (eg, film of guns firing next to a 105mm howitzer).

One special film is when I went on a flight with Jade 8 (between operations) and witnessed an airstrike by Canberra bombers from the air. Years later after contacting Chris in Texas, he said he had taped the cockpit conversations between the Forward Air Controller (himself) and a flight of Canberra bombers on a similar airstrike. I have included that to add to the authenticity. I believe the film of the bombs dropping from the Canberra is unique in that can only be done from the perspective of a Forward Air Controller.

VIETNAM – A NATIOS STORY

Posted on January 30, 2019 by admin No Comments

This video was sent to me by Jean Carter a widow of one of the ” boys” I was with in HQ1ATF in 1966/67.  Jean says

“This is well done I wish it could be distributed throughout all schools. But at least share with your friends so they can see.
One phrase really struck me, you were called up and forced to go to War being threatened a 2 yr Jail sentence if you didn’t, and then when you came home you were abused for doing it.
I wonder what those arse holes feel like now when they are older and hopefully know the truth of what damage they did to our guys when they came home

You might enjoy this video on Vietnam. It has been put together by a school teacher (Nasho) as an aid to teaching senior children.”
