Veterans Organisations and Web Sites
- ANZAC. One in five of the Australians and New Zealanders who left these shores between 1914 and 1918 (80,000 people) never returned. Of those who did come home, many carried physical and emotional scars for the rest of their lives. The aim of this site is to honour their memory. It is a comprehensive, multi-media presentation about World War 1.
- Armed Services Assistance Centre, Australia. ASAC is a non-profit organisation providing free advice and assistance in relation to pensions, welfare, entitlements and compensation, to serving and ex-serving members of Australian and allied defence forces and their families.
- AUSVETS. Veterans' news and information, military history, plus many links.
- Malaya Borneo Veterans. This site concerns the Malayan Emergency(1948-60) and the Indonesian Confrontation(1963-66).
- Vietnam Veterans' Association of Australia. VVAA is an essential information source for Vietnam veterans with links to other veterans' sites and unit sites.
- Vietnam Veterans Federation of Australia. VVFA is dedicated to the welfare of Vietnam veterans and their families. If you are a sick veteran, and your sickness may have been caused by war service, you can consult a trained volunteer at one of the branches and sub-branches round Australia - details on the site.
- World War II Nominal Roll. This Department of Veterans' Affairs site contains information from the service records of some one million individuals who served with Australia's defence forces and the Merchant Navy during World War II. You can search for service record details by specifying name or service number or honours or place (of birth, of enlistment, or residential locality at enlistment). Once you find an individual service record you can print a certificate of service.
