Long Tan Cross

Very pleasing to see on the TV news that the original Long Tan Cross has been gifted by Vietnam to the Australian War Memorial. It was shown in place in the AWM on the broadcast.
It had previously been loaned to the AWM some time ago and after its return to Vietnam apparently lobbying got underway to have the Cross returned to Australia permanently. It now has a very honourable home at the AWM after years of being pretty much out of sight at a museum in Bien Hoa, NE of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). As a Viet Vet I am particularly pleased to see it at the AWM after seeing it in the museum at Bien Hoa. One hopes that the VN Govt will not ask for the removal of the cross on display in the rubber plantation at Long Tan.
