Located west of National Route Two, Fire Support Base (FSB) Wattle was set in the Courtenay Rubber Planation, 25 km north north west of Nui Dat. A burn off to clear foliage is under way as grey smoke rises from the ground. This setting is a typical 'infantry pad' for helicopter support. Photographed in the dry season, this was a major operational area for the 1st Australian Task Force (1ATF).
