Australia and the Vietnam War | Conscription

Australia and the Vietnam War | Conscription | Vietnam War; Conscription and Involvement | Scoop.it
The Vietnam War was the longest conflict in which Australians have been involved; it lasted ten years, from 1962 to 1972, and involved some 60,000 personnel. A limited initial commitment of just 30 military advisers grew to include a battalion in 1965 and finally, in 1966, a task force. Each of the three services was involved, but the dominant role was played by the Army.
Brianne Salis's insight:

This website provides the brief overview, about the Vietnam War in Australia.  Including concription and the protests.
