What is amusing now had to be
taken in desperate earnest once
Virginia Woolf, A Room of
One's Own, 1929
Life was never dull during our tour in the
Republic of South Vietnam. We all lived
through a wide range of experiences. War of
course is a deadly business, no more so than
as an infantry soldier whose task was to
"Seek Out, Close With and Kill the Enemy."
There were lighter moments, and it has been said the Aussie Digger
could find a joke in a cardiac arrest! The
stories on this page are from members who
would like to share their humourous
experiences with you.
I'm looking for more contributions, so if you served with 5RAR or
were in support of the battalion I would
like to hear from you.
