A shell bursting in the Long Hai Hills above the town of Long Hai. The shell has probably been fired by a Centurion Mk V/1 tank of A Squadron, 1st Armoured Regiment, Royal Australian Armoured Corps (RAAC). A small column of Australian vehicles including Centurion tanks were in position nearby on Route 44, checking for enemy movement in the area.
