This was 4 RARs final acclimatisation operation prior to taking part in Task Force
operations. The task was to destroy all enemy and enemy assets in the area
between the Nui Dinhs and the Nui Thai Vais (mountains), south-west to Route 15.
W Company, patrolling down the eastern boundary, met stiff opposition from
caretaker groups but managed to reach the installations being guarded.
There were five contacts with the enemy and one member of the Company was
wounded by an enemy claymore mine.
A number of large camps were located and destroyed, where possible, including a
battalion sized training camp and a camp some 200 yards in width. Many weapons,
packs, ammunition and a large quantity of food were captured. W and D Companies
moved to a pick-up point on Route 15 and returned to Nui Dat by road on 20 June
for two days' rest.
