      The members of the 720th MP Battalion Reunion Association Vietnam History Project are proud to host this webpage and extend a long overdue "Thanks Mates," to the Royal Australian Army Provost Corps (RAA PRO), Australian Force Vietnam Provost Unit, (AFV PRO), and Royal New Zealand Corps of Military Police at Vung Tau, who served in III Corps Tactical Zone, Vietnam with members of the Battalion.

        The first Australian Military Police to enter South Vietnam was a section of the 1st Division Provost Company (1 DIV PRO COY), arriving in Saigon, South Vietnam, on 12 May 1965. They were part of the Australian Force Vietnam HQ (AFV HQ), Saigon.

        The Military Police in South Vietnam were all members of the Royal Australian Army Provost Corp (RAA PRO) and belonged to the only Australian Military Police unit in South Vietnam, known as the Australian Force Vietnam Provost Unit (AFV PRO). They were also joined by members of the Royal New Zealand Corps of Military Police. The primary area of operations for Australian Forces in Vietnam was Nu Dat.

        MPs of the 720th served alongside Aussy and Kiwi MPs at Vung Tau in 1970-1972, and for approximately one month during January-February 1968 a small detachment of Australian MPs served attached to B Company on Long Binh Post.

        The MPs of A Company also shared a barracks with members of the Australian Forces 104th Signal Squadron at their detachment in Bearcat in 1969.
