Phuoc Tuy Province, South Vietnam. May 1970. 218618 Trooper (Tpr) Barry Ainsley of Thirroul, NSW, and of 1 Squadron, Special Air Services (SAS), uses special coloured creams to camouflage all exposed skin, checking the results in a mirror. Before an SAS patrol leaves the base on its mission, the men 'cam up' their faces to make it harder for the enemy to spot them on patrol in the jungle.
