5RAR Tiger Logo Nui Dat

 
Nui Dat from the air NUI DAT EARLY 1966

In the middle ground can be seen the Nui Dat hill. The mountain behind the hill is the Nui Dinh. Behind and to the left are the Nui Thi Vai and Nui Toc Tien mountain ranges, all held by the VC  prior to the arrival of 5RAR and 6RAR.

A dirt road can be seen to the right of the picture. The open area to the left of the road, is where Luscombe Field will be built. 5RAR was 'housed' in the rubber to the right of the road.

This photograph was taken by Captain Ron Boxall of D Company inside the Sioux Helicopter from 161 Recce Flight approaching the hill from the east.
