Operation Redwing
Dateline : 13 June 1968

Duration :  1 day

Outcome :  4 RAR/NZ (ANZAC) troops - No losses
                     Enemy                                   - No losses
This was the battalions 'shake down' operation.
It was an operation to search the Binh Ba rubber plantation estate, and to check and investigate the Suoi Lup stream for occupation by the enemy's C41 Chau Duc Company.

For the new members of Delta Company, 4 RAR, it was an introduction to the company's song, "These boots are made for walking" - a Nancy Sinatra classic - and the company walked, and walked, and walked a little further.
[In military terminology, walked = patrolled].

HQ stood fast under the protection of C Company, who carried out close-in patrolling.
