Vung Tau: an oasis of near-sanity in a crazy place

Vung Tau was the sea-side town used by the Australian Task force as an in-country rest area. It was here that the soldiers came, Company by Company, to get some break from the war. The starting point was called the Peter Badcoe Club in honour of Badcoe VC.
