    Enjoyed that thanks, except maybe the glimpse of Kiwi Keith?

    I guess that was Westmoreland as well? Didn't realise the Yanks had any prominance there.

    My uncle went to Malaya (twice IIRC), 'Nam and Borneo.
    Mostly with 1Bn and SAS.
    Have read recent histories, courtesy of the Uncle, of both 1RNZIR and NZSAS.
    Our Armed Services have always 'punched above their weight' and technology/equipment shortages don't seem to have lessened their capabilities.
