ripples of wartime



Neville Sinkinson served in Vietnam as a RAAF helicopter crewman in 1970 and ‘71. Working mainly in helicopter gunships, Neville was part of a team carrying ground troops in and out of operations, delivering ammunition and other supplies and evacuating wounded personnel, sometimes under enemy fire. The story of his Vietnam War experience is related in a book entitled Shockwave – An Australian Combat Helicopter Crew in Vietnam.

When you came home no-one asked you how you were feeling or anything like that. It just didn’t happen. The attitude was like: “You’ve been to Vietnam – you’ll be right – get on with it…”
