Served with 161 Bty, Dec 1966 to Dec 1967 SVN. I was due for a discharge May 1968, My Army O/C at the time asked me to sign on for another tour. I seriously considered it. At the time I had just met my future wife and after 49 years and three children later we are still together. So I wished I had gone back for a return TOD but would I have had the same outcome if I had. I went brick and block laying for a few years and in 1975 joined the NZ Police. And I did cop a bit of flak at being a Vietnam Veteran, this flak was from a few serving policemen. I later joined the Armed Offenders Squad and later still, the Anti Terrorist Squad. I finished my Policing as a fire arms instructor for the ChCh Police District.
