Seeking Two 1RAR Group veterans who served on Operation Hump – 8th November 1965.

Attention 1RAR Group Veterans

My name is John Doorley, and I am reaching out with request to two Vietnam veterans who served with the 1RAR Group on Operation Hump on the 8th of November 1965. I have been asked to coordinate the 1RAR Group contingent to join with members of the 173d Airborne Brigade (Sep) for a special journey back to Vietnam to commemorate the battle during Operation Hump.

The return to Vietnam tour will be held over the period March 1st to 10th, 2024.

This pilgrimage aims to honour the sacrifices, bravery, and camaraderie demonstrated by our fellow soldiers during those pivotal days. We believe that the best way to pay tribute to the past is by returning to the very grounds where history was written and forging new memories.

Event Details:

  • Battle Commemoration:March 1st to 10th, 2024
  • Location:Vietnam, the site of the Battle of HUMP
  • Expenses:All expenses will be covered

We are extending an invitation for two veterans to join the rest of the 1RAR Group contingent on this all expenses paid tour. Those interested must be able to gain their doctors clearance and be in age-appropriate fitness. You must have a current Passport, also you must have served on Operation Hump.

If you or someone you know fits the criteria and would be interested in participating, please contact John Doorley at the earliest convenience. John can be reached via email at [email protected] or by phone at 0408 877 507.

If you have any questions, please give me a call.  This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to join with other members of the 1RAR Group and members of the 173d Airborne Brigade (Sep) on this fully sponsored tour.
