One of the Australian Army’s most significant battles of the Vietnam War was fought at the Fire Support Patrol Bases (FSPB or FSB) of Coral and Balmoral. The battle is remembered for the courage of Australian soldiers who fought desperately as hundreds of troops from the 7th Division of the North Vietnamese Army hammered their positions.
Our mates Brian Simpson (Simmo) and Blue Kelly were at FSB Coral, right in the thick of it. Simmo had a chance to catch up with Trudie Leigo from ABC Wide Bay during our recent Veterans Day Event. Click HERE to listen.
