Padre Tom Shanahan of 5RAR Spiritual Reflection 1969

Padre Tom Shanahan leading 5 RAR troops in prayer 1969. This picture was probably taken at FSPB Elaine near Xuyen Moc in July 1969. It was at this time on 21 July 1969 that man landed on the moon for the first time. The 'Diggers' of 5 RAR heard the announcement over Armed Forces Radio, Vietnam and heard Neil Armstrong utter those famous words "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".
