161 Battery lines at Nui Dat, April 2008

The picture shows the only remaining structure in the 161 Battery lines at Nui Dat, April 2008. I helped dig it in 1966. It is the old Kiwi Exchange (telephone exchange) which was at the entrance to the gun position, behind it was the battery office.

I remember that pit well. I too helped dig it. I also remember a shift in there when I wasn't relieved by the next person on the roster. That was a long night. It wasn't you Pat, was it?
