What year did Australain soldiers fight in the Vietnam War?

In 1961 and in 1962, Ngo Dinh Diem, leader of the government in South Vietnam, repeatedly asked for assistance from America and its allies to help its security. Australia eventually accepted and sent 30 military advisers from the Australian Army Training Team to Vietnam.
