1ALSG Vung Tau On 'The Beach'
Vung Tau - May 1966

Stores and equipment can be seen in the middle ground and tentage erected for the newly-arrived 5RAR in the background.

The beach was used to acclimatise the soldiers with sports and many other activities to get the men used to the hot, humid conditions after leaving Australia in the middle of winter as they had only 18 days before the commencement of Operation Hardihood.
