Long Tan 18 August 1966
105 men from D Company 6 RAR and 3 forward artillery observers from New Zealand’s 161 Field Battery encountered, on 18 August 1966, a force of more than 2000. The Battle left one third of the Company dead or wounded, making Long Tan the Army’s most costly single engagement in Vietnam. 17 men were KIA and 1 died of wounds. 11 of the dead were National Servicemen and 7 were Regular Army soldiers – their average age was 21.
