Australian Vietnam Veterans Mortality Listing – Request for Assistance

5 Feb 2017

This is a request from John “Mac” McGovern Ex 4Platoon, B Company 4 RAR/NZ (ANZAC) Battalion 2nd tour for your help.

Hello there,
As you are probably aware, 2nd tour B Company 4 RAR/NZ (ANZAC) Battalion members are taking over where the 1st tour guys left off, in keeping up the list of Mortality Files of Vietnam Veterans.

All services (Navy/Army /Air Force) are included in the mortality list.

I am seeking your help in:
(a) Providing us with notifications of a veteran’s death by completing the Notification form on the website ( and

(b) Checking the list for your relevant unit to try to complete the yellow highlighted sections with accurate information, and then forwarding it to us by using the site email address ([email protected]).

Please try to be as exact as possible with the cause of death. “Passed away peacefully” is not a cause of death. We do realise that some of this information may not be available, but every bit of information sent will be included in the person’s entry on the list.

Future research by any relative or member of the public will be made a lot easier if the information is accurate and complete.

The web address is as follows

The email address is [email protected]

Thank you in anticipation of your assistance”
