Doc Roberton Treating a VC during the Battle of Binh Ba Wounded VC

'Doc' Roberton RMO (Regimental Medical Officer) of 5RAR and a medic is seen attending to a wounded VC outside the village during the Battle of Binh Ba.

He had been brought to them in an APC and once they had stabilised his wounds, he was evacuated to the Vietnamese Hospital in Vung Tau by helicopter.

Given the competence of the medics and the efficiency of the helicopter evacuation, it was unusual for the RMO to be deployed in this manner.
