Caption from the AWM.

Five soldiers of the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV) are now entitled to wear two United States Unit Citations. They are seen here enjoying a drink after being presented at a parade. All were with the 3rd Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (3RAR), at the Battle of Kapyong where it won the United States Presidential Unit Citation which they wear above the Meritorious Unit Citation presented to the Australian Army Training Team Vietnam (AATTV), at Vung Tau on 30 September.

Left to right: Warrant Officer Class 1 (WO1) Brian Lawrance, 43, working in Quang Tri; WO1 Ray Deed, 43, Phuoc Tuy Province; WO1 Bill Eade, 44, Hue; Captain Len Opie, 46, Phuoc Tuy Province, and WO1 Reg Bandy, 46, who is the Regimental Sergeant Major (RSM) of 7RAR at Nui Dat, who is drinking a can of Victoria Bitter (VB) beer.
