Of Mort Roth (BN S3)
1 - "Jungle Crusher" manufactured by Letourneau. With the drums filled with water it would crush a 30 foot wide path through the jungle. When the drums were empty it would float.
2 - Mort standing beside the "Jungle Crusher". The photo gives you a feel for its size.
Above are photos of the construction of the Battalion troop bunkers at Dong Tam. Mort doubled the with of a standard engineer bunker to accommodate troops from adjacent barracks. The bunkers were built between sets of barracks buildings with walls 2 (3?) foot thick and filled with sand.
Note: The first night that a bunker was useable, Mort went into it during a mortar attack. A round landed outside the wall he was sitting against and peppered his barracks, cot and jeep. As he says, "Sometimes luck is with you".
Float bridge we put in at Ben Luc after the main bride was blown during TET "68.
