5RAR on the first tour, when not on operations or TAOR Patrols, concentrated on building the fortifications of the 1st Australian Task Force as quickly as possible. This meant unloading stores and equipment on a daily basis.

Bob Cavill (Assault Pioneers) is seen here turning away from the stinging grit created by the 'down wash' from the Chinook's turning rotors as it delivers more stores to the battalion..
