Description

An isolated outpost, possibly an Australian Fire Support Base (FSB), stands amid a jungle clearing during the dry season. Several items of military equipment are visible including a jeep and an artillery piece in the centre. Some soldiers can be seen carrying out their duties. Many gun emplacements are concealed by low roofed structures (hootchies).
