I don't think the Aussies were involved in Nam Dong. It's a bit too far North for us we were mainly confined to Phuoc Tuy province.
Clue: The battle was characterised by Regimental scale attacks being repulsed by 105mm Howitzers firing point blank with cannister and fleschette rounds. The NVA/VC were grumpy that we had setup a FSB right in the middle of one of their busiest routes into Saigon.
I've stuffed up here, this battle was the Second most notable battle. it occured after Long Tan.
My humble apologies. It was fought in part by members of 1RAR (and others) who were on their second deployment, not the first as I wrongly thought.
