This ANZAC day…

Take time to remember. One way you can do this is to take the time to watch this movie produced by the extraordinarily talented Martin Walsh. It is incredibly moving and a reminder of the sacrifice made by so many.

105 Australians and 3 New Zealanders fought and defeated an overwhelming enemy force of 2,500 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers in a rubber plantation in South Vietnam called Long Tan. This three and a half hour battle was so fierce it resulted in the deaths of 18 Australians and more than 500 enemy.

    There are many reasons to remember the Kiwis and Australians who fought in Vietnam and Martin’s documentary is a good way to do this. The next step in this journey is to tell the story of Harry Smith and the men of D Company and their Kiwi artillery support in a dramatic movie – something that Martin and I intend to do before too long. Thanks for recommending Martin’s LONG TAN documentary. Charles Hannah
