Description

The RAAF contingent in Vietnam must be kept well equipped with gear that will stand up to the rigours of the tropics. The most important is the RAAF men's weapons, as a surprise attack by the Viet Cong (VC) is always a possibility. Seen here examining weapons in the Vung Tau equipment store, prior to Operation Bribie, are equipment assistant A19780 Corporal (Cpl) Kevin Thomas Seckington, of Bribie Island, Qld (left) and motor transport fitter, A219848 Leading Aircraftman (LAC) Richard Louis Mattiazzi, of Wollongong, NSW.
