Ron was seriously WIA in action on the 14th Oct 1965 during our first trip to the “Iron Triangle”, Ron was shot 4 times in the stomach and shoulder, we were sure Ron would not make it, but after spending up to a year in hospital Ron recovered to lead a long and happy life.
Another Warrior has passed out through the wire for the last time.
