1. I bought a new slide scanner and ran across a slide with this picture in it. It's been blown up a bit, which explains the bluriness, but if anyone knows who these women are, please let me (and them) know. If anyone can identify the uniforms, that could help.
2. Here's the most informative blowup I could get of the nametags; no useful information, I'm afraid.
3. Land Rover in Biên Hóa.
4. Land Rover, SWB (88" wheelbase or shorter) with the LR badge painted over; the latest version this could be would be a Series IIA, but it could be a lot earlier. Can anyone pin down the year a little better? Remember, the picture was taken in 1970, probably Q2 or early Q3.
5. Busses were everywhere in Việt Nam, and almost all were brightly colored.
7. Sàigòn to Tây Ninh bus, coming across a one-lane bridge while we waited.
8. Well, not all busses were painted in interesting ways.
13. And not all casualties on the highway were due to acts of war.
14. Taxi caught in traffic in Sàigòn.
15. Crossing a bridge between Sàigòn and Biên Hóa. The route number might be 363, or it might not, but it certainly joined with 363 and later QL 12 going to Phú Cường where we would catch TL 8A back to Củ Chi. This bridge carries both railroad and auto traffic, and there's only one of those near Biên Hóa, where it crosses the Sông Đồng Nai.
16. The same bridge between Sàigòn and Biên Hóa.
17. Crossing the Sông Đồng Nai.
18. After crossing the bridge, heading back to Củ Chi.
19. Industrial locomotive near Tân Sơn Nhất.
20. Industrial diesel locomotive near Tân Sơn Nhất. This is the second occasion on which I saw locomotives in Việt Nam, the first being near Dĩ An. I missed that shot, however.
21. Troops in Sàigòn.
