Viet Vet Ralph Blewitt reads official war diaries recording his first contact with enemy - after almost 50 years
This is the official After Action Report from Private Ralph Blewitt's first contact with the enemy in June 1967.
This bloke Ralph Blewitt has never seen this report.
Here is the first of 4 parts of a recording of Ralph's reaction. God Bless you Ralph and thank you for your Service.
And here's an extract from the diaries - this map of our area of operations (including the Long Tan rubber plantation) should bring a flood of memories for many of our readers.
