ww100On 27 May 1965, following a request by the Government of the Republic of South Vietnam, the New Zealand Government agreed to send a four-gun artillery battery for service in that country. 161 Battery, Royal New Zealand Artillery was flown to Vietnam in mid July.

In March 1967 the New Zealand Government increased its contribution to the operations in Vietnam and sent V Company, Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment and a medical unit.

The nurses who took part in this campaign were employed at 1st Australian Field Hospital in Vung Tau, South Vietnam and their presence was a great morale booster for the New Zealand troops. Captain Daphne Shaw was awarded the ARRC (Royal Red Cross 2nd Class) for her services in Vietnam.

A New Zealand (civil) Surgical Team worked at the Provincial Hospital at Qui Nhon, South Vietnam from 1965 and had a number of Territorial Force nurses among their staff. One of them, Lesley Cowper died in Vietnam on 2 May 1966.

The first roll is for the nurses of the Royal New Zealand Nursing Corps (RNZNC) who served in Vietnam between 1967 - 1971.

The roll for the RNZNC TF nurses who served with the civlian New Zealand Surgical Team is included for historical purposes.
