Interested in association &reunion. I was a Reo from 5 who then completed the full tour with 7 only to be sent back to 1ARU! Served in 10 & 11 platoons. I was mates with Gary Cashion, also ex 5, who was killed by lightning on a night patrol in heavy weather, just after I went to the Horseshoe training elements of the 18th ARVN Div. If anyone was on that patrol out of NDP Isa (?)who could tell me more, I’d appreciate it. He was a great bloke & a top digger. He had taken over from me as Sig for Sgt Riddett(?). Many thanks, Ian. ( Ps a photo of me at “the shoe” Aust War Mem JON/70/0435/VN, might jog someone’s memory..).
Very impressive presentation, well done chaps
