DescriptionA sketch that recalls a patrol by B Coy of the 57/60th Australian Infantry Battalion when they were ambushed by the Japanese and forced to take to the bush, and regain their lines by a long detour. During the course of this, they heard the Japanese coming and set an ambush which trapped seven of the enemy.
