    Nui Dat, South Vietnam. November 1970. Corporal Arthur Wallis, 21, of Preston, Vic, sharpening a knife in preparation for carving the three prime hams he has prepared for Christmas. He is one of 200 Army cooks who have been sharpening their wits, and their knives, to give Australian troops in Vietnam a slap-up Christmas lunch and dinner.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called Vietnam/Korea - Australia & Allies 1950/1970s, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      William (Bill or Gunna) Cunneen took a pic of me and my mate, Warren Alloway, at Fire Support Base Coral in 68. The pic is in this group and also the Official history book on that period.
