What you need – Early Australian AATTV Advisor 1964-1965

Vietnam Reenactors UK

For those of you looking for a more smart and sophisticated look, and a “damn fine” hat too! Why not try the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV). You can't really go wrong with the early Australian “JG” shirt and crossover trousers but any indigenous and US uniforms of the period is perfectly acceptable. Don't worry too much about insignia, it isn't as flashy as the US, and was generally kept to minimum.
