Victor 4 Company flag

Flag used by Victor 4 (V4) Company during their deployment in South Vietnam with 6RAR/NZ (Anzac) Battalion, May 1969 to May 1970.

The flag was made in 1968 while V4 was stationed in Malacca, Malaysia. During their deployment in Vietnam, the flag was raised and lowered daily at the Company Headquarters in Nui Dat. This ceremony was conducted regardless of whether the Company were present - on the 320 days that V4 was in the field on operations, rear personnel conducted the ceremony.

Ex-members of V4 kept the flag safe until its presentation to the National Army Museum Waiouru in 2004.
