18 AUGUST 1966
Hollywood

Late afternoon August 18, 1966 South Vietnam — for three and a half hours, in the pouring rain, amid the mud and shattered trees of a rubber plantation called Long Tan, Major Harry Smith and his dispersed company of 108 young and mostly inexperienced Australian and New Zealand soldiers are fighting for their lives, holding off an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 battle hardened Viet Cong and North Vietnamese soldiers. With their ammunition running out, their casualties mounting and the enemy massing for a final assault each man begins to search for his own answer — and the strength to triumph over an uncertain future with honor, decency and courage.

The ensuing Battle of Long Tan becomes one of the most savage and decisive engagements in ANZAC history, earning both the United States and South Vietnamese Presidential Unit Citations for gallantry along with many individual awards. But sadly not before 18 Australians and more than 500 enemy are killed. Heroism, tragedy and the sacrifice of battle, Long Tan is a grueling and dramatic exploration of war with all its horror, that will rightly take its place alongside war classics such as Gallipoli, Breaker Morant, Saving Private Ryan, Zulu & Blackhawk Down.

This documentary and our upcoming movie is a tribute to the nobility and uncommon valor of these men — many of them conscripts – under fire. It honors their loyalty to their country and to each other, and it brings to light the heroism and unimaginable sacrifice of all military men and women both home and abroad.

Long Tan is the true story of ordinary boys who became extraordinary men.

    6RAR, which included D Company who fought in the Battle of Long Tan, was raised on this day, 6 June 1965 at Alamein Barracks at Enoggera in Brisbane, Queensland when a cadre of officers and NCOs and two rifle companies were transferred from 2 RAR to form the nucleus of the new battalion.

    The battalion was then brought up to full strength when a large intake of national servicemen marched in in September 1965.

    The battalion’s first commanding officer was LT COL Colin Townsend, DSO, whilst WO1 George Chinn, DCM came from SAS Campbell Barracks in Perth WA as the battalion’s first regimental sergeant major. It was initially assigned to the 6th Task Force (which was later to become 6th Brigade).

EARLY DAYS
THERE ARE MANY VARIATIONS OF PASSAGES OF LOREM IPSUM AVAILABLE, BUT THE MAJORITY HAVE SUFFERED ALTERATION IN SOME FORM, BY INJECTED HUMOUR, OR RANDOMISED WORDS WHICH DON'T LOOK

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.
Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of “de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum” (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC.

This might be the greatest Vietnam documentary I’ve ever seen. I’m in awe of the bravery and skill of the Aussie fighting man. We could have learned some valuable things from your experiences in asymmetric warfare. I feel pride in calling Australia a great friend and ally – not only for fighting alongside us in this unpopular quagmire, but for Afghanistan, Iraq, and all the others as well.
