A khaki drill uniform is an unusual sight on an Australian sailor, who is part of the RAN's commitment in Vietnam. The RAN Helicopter Flight Vietnam (RANHFV) is serving in Vietnam, attached to the US Army 135th Assault Helicopter Company. Here four members of RANHFV stand outside a sandbagged hut at Black Horse base, near Xuan Loc, South Vietnam. The group includes (probably left to right), R35864 Air Mechanic Airframes and Engines 1 (AMAE1) Raymond Harold Homer; R51196 Petty Officer Airman Mechanic Airframes and Engines (POAMAE) John Frederick Clark; R52160 AMAE1 Kevin Patrick Brennan; and R54620 Leading Airman Mechanic Airframes and Engines (LAMAE) David Nelson Varley. The base was originally at Vung Tau, but moved in December 1967.
