Consolidation of DVA Nominal Roll Websites

Dear ESORT Members
You may recall that at our last meeting on 27 February 2020, Deputy Secretary Charles McHardie announced the consolidation of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) nominal roll websites into a new, single access portal at
The new nominal rolls website was implemented on 5 March 2020. It continues to provide information on the service history of members of the Australian Defence Force (ADF) who served during World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War, consolidated in a single location. The new website has an improved look and feel and a much improved search functionality that we know you will appreciate.
We are writing to agencies and organisations who support veterans and their families to let you know about the new website and to support you in case you get any queries from users. To help make the transition to the new website seamless and easy for veterans and their families to use, users accessing previous websites are being automatically redirected to the new site. While we have not experienced any issues to date, there may be isolated instances where redirection does not occur as expected. 
In the event you are contacted to assist with technical difficulties, we would appreciate you suggesting to the user they update any saved links to the previous nominal rolls websites to the new address. Users may have these stored as ‘bookmarks’ or as ‘favourites’ in their web browser. If additional assistance is required, please do not hesitate to refer veterans and their families to the DVA Nominal Rolls Team, telephone 1300 780 133, or the Director Nominal Rolls – GPO Box 9998, Brisbane, QLD, 4001.
Thank you for your ongoing commitment to acknowledging and commemorating the service and sacrifice of Australia’s veteran community.
