Service: Army
Branch: Infantry
Case Notes:



Nickolai Nightingale did 169 days hard service in Vietnam from 21 May 1968 to 5 November 1968 with the 3rd Battalion Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR).  




Here are the medals he is wearing


Infantry Combat Badge (ICB - Wrongly positioned

Anniversary of National Service Medal (ANSM) - Wrongly positioned

Vietnam Medal (VM) - Wrongly positioned

Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal (RVCM) - Not entitled and wrongly positioned

Australian Active Service Medal (AASM) - Wrongly positioned


Had Nightingale not been wearing the RVCM and his only problem was wrong positioning he would not be appearing on this website.




The RVCM required service of 181 days in Vietnam, Nightingale completed only 169 days.




Nightingale was not declared a Battle Casualty and therefore did not earn the RVCM.


The Narooma RSL has a reputation for counselling those who wrongly wear medals and we are confident that Nightingale will straighten out his rack.


We welcome the smiling face and the befuddled medals of Nickolai Nightingale
