Seymour is a town approximately 100 kms north of Melbourne and has a population of 6000 residents.
It is the site of an impressive Vietnam Veteran’s Commemorative Walk.
The project committee, before they even began the project insisted that although it was for the Australian Veterans,
that New Zealand Veterans would also be informed. Several Kiwis living in Australia provided photographs and assistance including
our Assault Pioneer Section Commander, Cpl Barry McAvinue who dedicated the Long Tan Cross during the Opening of Stage 2.
Barry was part of the Aslt Pnr Platoon that constructed and erected the cross on 18th August 1969 at the battle site.
V4 also sent a photo of Pam Miley (RNZNC) and Ruth Devine (RAANC) which features.
At the V4 Coy Reunion at Napier in 2013 it was decided to purchase pavers for the project.
8 Pavers were ordered and paid for by the Book Management Committee,
one for each of our Roll Of Honour Men and one for our Company.
