A photo of the Recovery Team with their truck in South Vietnam 1971 - "We Pick Up Anything".  The photo was recently found in a box of photos located at 113 Workshop Coy Karrakatta.  Very little is known about the photo.

I am very interested in any of the RAEME Units that served in Vietnam at any time. I was with a CMF , then Army reserve Unit, namely 2 Fd Regt, L.A.D. and later with 2/15 Fd Regt L.A.D. and later as a name change to T.S.T. Most of the Senior NCO's in the LAD/TST, applied for overseas service but only two Sergeants went. We were informed when they returned we would go, but, that did not happen either.

I don't know any of those guys, but here's a picture I took of a couple of recovery mechanics from 106 Fd Wksp RAEME at 1 ATF, Nui Dat, SVN some time during 1970-71. 905995_10153177294949070_1594439052341142054_o.jpg

Hi Allan,
Would you have many more photos from your days in the service? It would be great if you could add some more to the site to share with everyone.
