    These are terrific. Do not apologize for their condition. I have only two of Cambodia from about five years before this and know how bad they can get.

    Each one has a story. Thank you. Both for your service and for sharing these memories.

      Thanks for that comment Red, just wish I had todays cameras back in those days, they were taken with the new instamatic polaroid and as you will appreciate the developing material in them does not adapt well with the Asian tropical heat,some bad memories but then again some priceless memories
      Wishing you a great Tuesday

    Memories Emu held in photo’s and held in ones Mind… never to be erased… A world in which in the 70’s we thought that we should have learnt by those lessons.. And yet it seems Mankind keeps on repeating the same mistakes… loved seeing these images.. Much Brighter than some which came out of that war… Thank you for sharing Emu.. and Thank you … Full Stop.. ~Sue

      Thanks Sue , glad you appreciated my olden days pics
      I think I missed out on the flower power days,instead of sitting on tanks and going into battle to the sounds of Creedence Clearwater blaring out I should have been back home and enjoying the free love that was circulating, reckon I would have been good at it in those days.
      Wishing you a great week ahead Sue

      Thanks Lady Jude and great to hear from you, do hope you are well and happy and that all is okay in your world, miss you around the traps as Lady Jude, maybe time to make a comeback, glad you enjoyed my old pics, taken in the instamatic polaroid days, not good in the tropics as the developing stuff in them got damaged quickly.
      Wishing you a great weekend

      Hi mate, Friday morning here and cold day ahead, still got a touch of the flu but improving
      Yes you are right , not all memories are bad ones, some rough times but again some beautiful times,
      these pics were taken back in the days of the old polaroid instant pics, the extreme weather affected the development

    Thank you for all you have done, and did do for your country, and for generations like myself and mine to come into a world that was hopefully going to be somehow fairer, somehow one with peace as promised.
    You have and always will by my hero as I have told you many a time, (regardless how grumpy you may be or how many cashews you spill into your keyboard)……… have and will always be my earth bound earth spirit, love always

      Bloody hell girl , cut out the mushy bullcrap, you had me crying in me beer till I realized me stubby was empty
      The world back in those days was topsy turvey, me sitting on the top of a tank going into battle with music of peace and love blaring
      while every other bastard back in Australia was practicing free love and getting their end in,and the old Emu wos in the wrong place at the wrong time but still had his weapon in his hand,
