Thanks Paul for the post. I was the chief clerk of 6 RAR for two an a half years so brings back memories when this date came up.

Cheers,

Great post.

I have had the privilege to have David Sabben give presentations to my unit over the years - the last one in January this year.

It is incredible hearing about the battle of Long Tan first hand from one who was there.

Excellent vid - thanks for posting. Always love watching the Vietnam vets go back to Vietnam and walk the terrain they fought on.

Morrie Stanley is still a legend over here, one of my favorite books as well.

Nice link on the arty scenes filmed in NZ...In -3 Celsius conditions.

Nice one Paul

That was quite unique with the vets returning to the area!
