main road into 5RAR lines at nui dat 1st tour Main Road 5RAR Lines 1966

This view is of the main road into the 5RAR lines in 1966.

BHQ and flagpole can be seen middle right of centre. the battalion was still 'under tents' and in the foreground can be seen construction timber and filled sandbags ready for the next project.

In the early days the soldiers would return from operations or TAOR patrols to be told to pick up a shovel or hammer and get on with the job of building the defences around the 5RAR lines. It was 24/7 for the first six months of the 1st tour.
