FED: Vietnam veterans remembered across Ausralia

Sunay, August 18, 2019.

Australian troops who fought in Vietnam have been honoured at ceremonies across the country marking the 53rd anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan.

The heart of Sydney was brought to a standstill as hundreds gathered at the Martin Place Cenotaph on Sunday morning to remember the courage of the 108 Australian and New Zealand soldiers who fought about 2000 Viet Cong soldiers in the defining battle of the Vietnam war.

It was fought against almost impossible odds in a rubber plantation where 18 Australians died and 24 were wounded on August 18, 1966.

On that same afternoon a concert for the troops was being performed by Australian singers Col Joye and 17-year-old Little Pattie who had to be evacuated from the stage mid-performance when the battle escalated.
