Climbing mountains in a flak jacket and helmet is hot work for Private John Sandry of Richmond, NSW. His unit, C Company of 8th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (8RAR), was sweeping through a section of the Long Hai mountains searching for Viet Cong caches during Operation Hammersley. C Company found many weapons and ammunition caches in the caves scattered throughout the mountains, other caches were uncovered by the severe bombardment that the Long Hai mountains received after a clash between C Company and a strong force of enemy earlier that week.
