Above - a Huey helicopter - always a welcome sight as they brought supplies, medical support, and quick evacuation from the battlefield.
Above centre- a break in Nuit Dat base camp (the author is in the centre). Machine gunner Barry Duncan on the left, and forward scout Alan Hughes on the right.
Bottom - on mounted patrol in 1969 - beats walking but one felt exposed sitting on top of the carriers.
