Product Description

This magnificent piece of history comes framed ready to hang, a great gift idea for any occasion. "On 18 August 1966, the 108 men of D Company, 6 RAR fought off more as many as 2,500 Viet Cong soldiers in a rubber plantation at Long Tan in Phuoc Tuy province of South Vietnam." "Vastly outnumbered, the Australians endured driving monsoonal rains and decimated radio communications to fend off an enemy more than 10 times the size of the Australian company. "Eighteen Australians were killed in action in the battle, with 24 wounded in action. More than 245 enemy KIAs were found on the battle ground when fighting ceased. "The efforts of the men of D Company, 6 RAR will be further honoured on Thursday when they receive the Australian military's highest honour, the Unit Citation for Gallantry, from the Governor-General. This award, many years late, is important recognition for their decisive efforts in battle."
