DVA’s Nominal Rolls now on one website

DVA has created a single portal for accessing our searchable Nominal Rolls.

21 April 2020

Our Nominal Rolls for the Second World War, Korean War and Vietnam War have moved to the new website, and the original websites have been decommissioned.

Regular users of the original Nominal Roll sites who have bookmarked the pages will still be able to use any stored links as they’ll be automatically redirected to the new DVA Nominal Rolls website.

One of DVA’s key roles is acknowledging and commemorating the service and sacrifice of all those who served Australia and its allies in wars, conflicts and peace operations through commemorations, memorials, war graves and research.

The World War Two Nominal Roll honours and commemorates some one million people who served in the armed services and the Merchant Navy from 3 September 1939 to 2 September 1945.

The Nominal Roll of Australian Veterans of the Korean War honours and commemorates more than 18,000 veterans who served from 27 June 1950 to 19 April 1956 either in Korea or in the waters adjacent to Korea.

The Nominal Roll of Vietnam Veterans honours and commemorates about 61,000 people who served from 23 May 1962 to 29 April 1975 either in Vietnam or in the waters adjacent to Vietnam.

The Preliminary Gulf War Nominal Roll honours and commemorates Australian Defence Force personnel involved in that conflict. It includes all personnel who served in the Persian Gulf from August 1990 to September 1991.

If you need to contact someone about the Rolls, call the Nominal Roll toll-free hotline 1300 780 133 (local call charge), email nominal.rolls [at] dva.gov.au or write to The Director, Nominal Rolls, Department of Veterans’ Affairs, GPO Box 9998, Canberra ACT 2601.

The Australian War Memorial manages rolls for personnel who served with the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) during the First World War as well as those who served in prior conflicts, including Sudan (1885), the Boer War (1899–1902) and the Boxer Uprising (1900–1901).

The National Archives of Australia also provides the ability to search digital copies of the service records of many Australians who served in the First and Second World Wars.
