Soldiers from Victor 4 Company pictured below Dinh Co monastery. The monastery was situated on top of a hill and used by the New Zealanders as a command post. Noel Bell took this photograph on 19 July 1969 - the day it was broadcast that US astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin Jr were about to walk on the moon.
