"We Australian Soldiers, Along with other Allied and Vietnamese Forces, are working together to destroy the Vietcong and their bases. We are here in a mutual effort with you to defeat the Viet Cong and help build up your country. We are your Australian Friends, who have parted from our homes and families in order to come here and fight and die beside you to stop communist aggression. While some of our units are fighting the Vietcong, others will assist you in your villages and hamlets. We are glad to be able to help you."

Chukka, the original cross and brass plaque were lost but the new cross at Long Tan is an exact copy. Unfortunately the brass plaque was being used as a cooking plate when it was recovered years later and the plaque now resides in the Ba Ria Museum. It is my understanding that the local ANZAC group petitioned for the plaques release but were denied. Here is something that will bring back memories from last years Vung Tau celebration via you tube http://youtu.be/UFWxtqKoHA8
