Tacs at Nui Dat 1967-68
« on: March 15, 2013, 09:43:02 AM »
 :) dennis has put me onto a great collection of photos from a fmr RAAOC member (of 2AOD Vung Tau).

Finally found a great picture to show my boys how tacs plates are used.

Its big:




On the left:

401 = HQ AFV non-corps-specific
51 = Army Aviation. 161 Recce
107 = RAAC
61 = RAINF 7RAR
50 = non-corps-specific
828 = non-corps-specific

In the center:

42 = RAA
47 = RAA
13 = RNZA
21 = 21 support troop RAE
60 =  RAINF 6RAR
102 = ??

On the right:

35 = 21 or 25? Supply Platoon (Det.) RAASC
76 = RAAMC 2 Field Ambulance
83 = RAAOC
80 = non-corps-specific
551 = non-corps-specific
401 is 1ATF HQ

Dating the photo

Looking at the RAR tacs, there is 7th Battalion (61) and 6th Battalion (60). These Battalions overlapped 'in-country' twice, firstly from 20apr67 to 30may67, and secondly from about 10feb70 to about 12may70. In both cases 7RAR was beginning a tour and 6RAR was ending a tour.
