    I wish you all the best.

  2. Phil Rutherford says:

    As a Vietnam Veteran, and former member of a group whose contribution to this battle has been continuously downplayed and, in some corners, ignored altogether, I and my fellow veterans will be watching this production with considerable interest.

  3. John Madigan says:

    I was a gunner in 103 Field Battery RAA and I remember how professional that our battery was during the Battle of Long Tan.

  4. David Cameron says:

    Is this film currently under production – if it is to be released 2016 – surely filming has started?

  5. Gary Parker says:
