G’day all,

At our AATTV 60th Anniversary Reunion on Saturday, 30th July I was approached by fellow Team member, Alec Morris OAM, DCM in relation to a submission prepared by him on behalf of the AATTV Association for the award of the Unit Citation for Gallantry (UCG) to AATTV.  Alec gave me a USB which I have now copied so that the content of the submission can be distributed to Team members and family members of those Team members that have passed on.   The submission has been updated and submitted, click on this link: UCG Submission Revised 3 April 2023.pdf

I have read through the submission and have to commend Alec on the research he has done to prepare this document.

The submission by Alec is very detailed with justification for the retrospective award of the UCG which can from what Alec has written, be approved by the Governor General. One thing that I did note was the number of awards made to members of AATTV, which no doubt would have been even higher had the government of the day during the Vietnam War recognised foreign awards.  I am sure many of you would be aware of Team members that were awarded South Vietnamese and US Awards that were never formally recognised by the Honours and Awards Tribunal due to lack of documentation being available when the government finally accepted these awards back in early 2000s from memory.

I ask that wide distribution of this submission be passed to fellow Team members that may not have computer skills and also to family members of Team members.

You can also address comments to Alec on email:

Take care and Persevere,
