Description

A restrained Viet Cong prisoner (centre) is escorted by two unidentified Australian soldiers - a corporal (left) and a Special Air Service (SAS) soldier (right). The prisoner is probably being taken for interrogation by an Intelligence Unit in order to gain specific details on the enemy presence and activity in the area. After interrogation, the prisoner would then normally be handed over to South Vietnamese military authorities. This photograph was taken from the cockpit of a RAAF 9 Squadron helicopter at the Kangaroo Pad.
