This is a really interesting review of the base we built – from a rubber plantation to the safest place in Vietnam. A Long watch but a good one.

Everyone who’s worn the uniform under fire, carries those memories in a different fashion.  This video on the Last Fighter Pilot may not be what you’re expecting, but it’s only four min long, so give it a try.

Put aside 50 minutes and watch this film about the entertainers who came over to South Vietnam … I’m sure you’ll remember many.

This is a moving song about the 20,000 odd National Servicemen (Compulsory Heros) who served in South Vietnam. Thank you for your service.

Thanks Ian H.

Film posted by John Neervoort

I have posted a number of videos on Youtube of film that I took on 6RAR’s second tour in 1969-70. Each video is about 5 minutes long. There is no commentary, just appropriate sounds of aircraft/guns/armour and background music. I originally did these for the National Vietnam Veterans Museum so they could be used on a free standing TV operated by the viewer alongside the museum item on display (eg, film of guns firing next to a 105mm howitzer).

One special film is when I went on a flight with Jade 8 (between operations) and witnessed an airstrike by Canberra bombers from the air. Years later after contacting Chris in Texas, he said he had taped the cockpit conversations between the Forward Air Controller (himself) and a flight of Canberra bombers on a similar airstrike. I have included that to add to the authenticity. I believe the film of the bombs dropping from the Canberra is unique in that can only be done from the perspective of a Forward Air Controller.
