A wave of dysentery among the ranks of RAAF door gunners caused the members of the No 9 Iroquois Squadron, RAAF, based at Vung Tau, to accept the services of US Army helicopter door gunners who had volunteered for any missions in the Iroquois. Members of the 765th Security Platoon checked in daily to see if their services could be used within the Squadron. Left to right, two US Army door gunners from No 765th Security Platoon, Vung Tau, Private (Pte) Virgil John of California and Pte Walter Gorzynski of Colorado, talk to RAAF Iroquois pilot 37576 Flight Lieutenant (Flt Lt) Robert Andrew (Bob) MacIntosh, of Ainslie, ACT.
