wynnum, you are correct in that it is 52 years this Saturday since the battle of Long Tan but you have the date wrong it is the 18/8/2018 not the 18/9/2018.Normally a friend Doug Merritt and I would try and arrange something as we did on Remembrance Day at Blue's Bar but unfortunately Doug is back in Australia for medical reasons and I will not be in Khon Kaen on Saturday. Doug and I are both ex-navy and we both served in Vietnam

No, I do not know any of your friends. I was based at H.M.A.S. Rushcutter in Sydney and at Vung Tau in Vietnam during the war

These data I think are good and very useful information for others.
