An Australian soldier in the field (centre) freshens up with an overhead bucket shower during a break from operations at Fire Support Base (FSB) Sally. Two other unidentified soldiers erect a US made M-29 81 mm mortar (left). Rolled up lengths of wire near them indicate that they are probably fortifying a defensive position, complete with mortar pit, strengthening a possible Command Post (CP). Ammunition boxes are also visible. Several low slung tents over pits (hootchies) appear in the background.
