Australia & Vietnam. and the band played Waltzing Mathilda

The Australians were posted near us in Vietnam. This would have been in Phuoc Thuy province, the main town of which was Baria. I was at Van Kiep for two years during my first tour. I forget exactly when they moved in. In fact one might not have known they were there so discreet was there presence. No flattening of all trees. No bars and laundries in the nearest town.

Not quite the same going out drinking with them in Vung Tau. We had an Australian in our team, Trevor Hill, and many was the night we were out with them and consumed vast quantities of beer.
Damned good fellows.
