Here is the evidence of this Caucasian seen in our Province, on two separate occasions [the 29 April & 2 May 69 respectively] assisting the enemy,
which I think is interesting since the reported sightings confirms my memory from briefings that a fair Caucasian was seen in the area of Xuyen Moc,
and on one occasion was extremely lucky after actually approaching a 5 RAR gun picket in the area: observed to be wearing a distinctive bandoleer,
sidearm, or short weapon [must be the same Caucasian]. I think from memory the 5 RAR gun picket was surprised and unsure of whether he was a
legitimate target, so lucky for the Russian!
Assuming the author memory is correct and in this case there is reason to think that it would be then a Soviet advisor or technician of some kind came
rather close to capture that day . Evidently the Australian SAS had been heels of this person you can view the Patrol Report
As the man was not captured by members of the Tiger Battalion this is really just of some historical interest for two reason . First off as the
article notes the next month the battle of Binh Bar
took place . Secondly although the
individual hasn't been identified the person sort of adds a picture if not a face to the war that hasn't been discussed a lot .
While I have forsaken the politics of the Vietnam War for the sake of making a point of historical interest I do wonder how the Soviets explained or
would have explained any causalities amongst those who were not officially in Phuoc Tuy province or any where else in Vietnam . I also ask the
reader to stick to this point of historical interest . If anyone else knows of any similiar incidents feel free to post them .
