At Fire Support Base (FSB) Janice near Nui Dat, two unidentified Australian soldiers, possibly staff officers, confer at 4 Battalion, the Royal Australian Regiment (4RAR) Command Post (CP) situated in a rubber plantation. A sign marked S3 identifies a specific hut for the staff officer responsible for the operations and training of the battalion. The hootchie structures, formed by sheets of corrugated iron and protected by walls of sandbags, stand on the dusty red earth which would later become a quagmire in torrential monsoonal rain.
