Anyone interested in doing me a Sub? I have the invitation, in pdf format, but of course I am not able to attend so if anyone is interested let me know.

Dear Russ,

The National Vietnam Veterans Museum is pleased to invite you to attend the launch of the new Exhibition, The Royal Australian Navy, Vietnam, 1965 - 1972 on Saturday 18 November, 2017 at 2pm.

Between 1965 and 1972, elements of the Royal Australian Navy undertook continuous operational service in Vietnam. During this period the Navy operational tasks included sea, shore and air duties.

The Vietnam War was not markedly a naval conflict, but for the 13,500 members of the R.A.N who saw active service, it was real. R.A.N played a significant role in the Australian Forces overall commitment. Destroyers sailed 400,000 miles (nautical) and fired 100,000 rounds of ammunition.
HMAS Sydney carried 16,000 troops. Famed as 'Vung Tau Ferry'.

The Exhibition opens on Saturday 18 November 2017 at 2pm and will be available until 1 May 2018. Images, video and artefacts will convey diverse stories and incidents, many having hitherto not been available for the public to see.

The Royal Australian Navy Band will be performing at the opening of the Exhibition after the formalities.

Please find attached your invitation to this event and we hope you are able to join us on this significant occasion.

Kind Regards
