New Zealanders in Vietnam.

Members of 3 Platoon, Victor 4 Company soon after their arrival in Vietnam, circa June-July 1969. Left to right: Pte Sonny Hona, Pte Hardie Martin, Sgt Tom Tuhiwai.

I don’t know why Lt Harley Pope [Platoon Commander] was not in this picture. He may have been detached on Liaison Officer duties at this time.
