Australian Patrol Section

As stated earlier, Australia was one of America’s staunchest allies throughout the Vietnam War and contributed over 60,000 men to the conflict between 1962 and 1973.  Here, we present a set of four ‘Diggers’ from the Royal Australian Regiment as they would have appeared on patrol during the 1967/68 period.  As you can see ,their appearance and some of their weapons are radically different from our US Marines in Hue.  The Aussies favoured ‘bush hats’ in place of steel helmets and rarely wore flak jackets.  Their uniform and web equipment shows a mix of British, Australian, and American influences.  As does their weaponry...
Our four-man set carries the American M60 machine gun, the M79 Grenade Launcher, and the M16 Automatic Rifle.  The standard military rifle most Aussies carried was the L1A1 Self Loading Rifle, the same as the British Forces of that time.
