Australian APCs moving into the long hai hills Single File


APCs cautiously patrol around the base of the Long Hai Mountains. The long Hai's were heavily booby trapped and mined claiming the lives of a number of Australians as well as wounding many.

It was in the early hours of February 21, 1967 when B Company riding in armoured personnel carriers hit mines and booby traps killing nine and wounding 22 others.

As can be seen, the APCs are moving in single file to minimize striking a mine. The driver's head can be seen lower right.
