Vietnam was largely a war of patrols and short range contacts against an elusive enemy. More often than not, the infantrymen would have to fight these engagements on their own. In 2013 we engaged renowned military artist, Drew Harrison, and military historian Graham Wilson, to create a detailed original artwork which showed the difference armour, artillery and air support can make to the fight when we fight as a combined force. An inspired and historic collection to share the story of Vietnam and service.

Combined Arms Contact Limited Edition Prints

For Australian soldiers Vietnam was largely a war of boots and bush. Short range contacts against an elusive enemy. While it was often infantrymen fighting on their own, there were occasions when they called on the support of other arms and services-armour, artillery or air support. Drew Harrison's painting depicts such an occasion. It captures the intensity of close range combat and demonstrates the battle winning value of combined arms action. His artwork brings together in the fight the Royal Australian Regiment, the tanks of 1st Armoured Regiment, 3rd Cavalry Regiment's armoured personnel carriers and the "Hueys" of Air Force.
