Long Tan: Dave Sabben interviewed

As the years pass, and our veterans get older, there are fewer opportunities to hear their stories first hand. In this episode of Cove Thoughts, produced especially to commemorate this year’s Vietnam Veterans’ Day, we talk to David Sabben about his experiences as a platoon commander at the Battle of Long Tan.   

Fifty four years on, and the lessons of realistic training, flexibility and self discipline still stand true today. As such, we commend David’s interview to all members of the profession of arms, regardless of their rank, trade or Corps.
