Description

1968. Publicity photograph of the all-girl pop group the Vamps. The five members, Carol Middlemiss, leader of the group Margaret Britt, Julie Hibberd and Denise Cooper and Valerie Fallon, all of Sydney, NSW, had been posted as missing while on tour entertaining United States troops at the remote L. Z. Ross landing base north of Da Nang in Vietnam. The five had been caught up in a heavy Viet Cong (VC) mortar attack and their whereabouts had caused some anxiety until they were located safe and well. (Donor M. Britt)
