Surveillance radar deployment, November 1970. The equipment was installed at the summit of Long Son Island, southeast of Baria, to support an ANZAC Battalion sweep of the western slopes of the Nui Dinhs. A 16-man party, under the command of Lieutenant Rick Williams, deployed to the island for six days to provide protection. Based in FSPB Andrea, they had an uneventful time except for one brief incident. Sentries heard noises outside the wire and Williams called in defensive fire from 161 Battery guns at FSPB Cook.
