Aussie veterans hand over details of Viet Cong deadAustralian Vietnam War veterans on Tuesday handed over information to help their former enemies locate the bodies of some of the 200,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong soldiers still classed as missing in action. At a ceremony with Vietnamese officials, a small team of Australian veterans shared a database including map references showing where 3,800 Vietnamese are believed to be buried after fights with Australian and New Zealand forces. “Basically it was the right thing to do,” said team leader Bob Hall, a Vietnam veteran and researcher at the University of New South Wales who led the project.
