Nice of you to come into a thread about how the Canadians and the Aussies were the only battalions that didn't retreat before the onrushing Chinese, and diss the Canadians.

Do you feel like a big man now? If I get a note from my mommy can I hang around with you?

That's ok though. From what I've heard from British, Canadian and American soldiers that served in A-stan, the Aussies did a FANTASTIC job of being REMFs.

You mean like the Turks won at Gallipoli. No wait that was Britain's fault er no the French or wogs but not the Aussies. Or like at Singapore, hold on that was the Brits fault again er no the wogs blew it. Anyway the good old Aussie Commander General Gordon Bennett escaped and left his army to be guests of the Imperial Japanese army for over three years.

At Kapyong Aussie troops bugged out before the fighting got going leaving the Canadians and Kiwis to lay a beat down on the chinks.

About being gay. Dosen't Sydney Australia bill themselves as the gay capitol of the world? Not that there's anything wrong with that.

Actually, the gay capital of the world is San Francisco. We also have the best kill rate ever (read about the Vietnam war). You know, the war Canada wouldn't fight in?

Actually Sydney is way bigger than Frisco, not that there's anything wrong with that. In Viet Nam Australia pulled out in 1972 leaving the Yanks in the lurch until they left in 75.

Approx. 50,000 Canadians volunteered for service in Viet Nam! You guys had to conscript your young men and force them to fight!

By the way you seem to have a vast knowledge of all things gay, not that there is anything wrong with that.

Wow! What a pathetic response. But what can you expect from a name calling troll living in the skin cancer capital of the world LOL!

Kinda funny that when you guys type things out no one would ever guess that you had such an annoying speech impediment lol!

That's not true. The Chinese hit the Aussie battalion first. They pulled back to prepared positions after their fight so the Kiwis could give the Canadians fire support. The Aussie withdrawl was part of the battle plan since neither the Aussies nor the Canucks had anything resembling a full strength battalion at Kapyong.

I will give credit where credit is due to the Aussies on this one.

Dude, the ONLY Canadians that volunteered had to go to the US to volunteer and there were only about 1000-1500 of them.
There were no combat troops serving in the Canadian army in Viet Nam.
What Canada did provide for that war were diplomatic services and intel.

That's not technically true about us leaving in 72 since we still had our embassy platoon there and we also deployed back there in 75.

So wrong on both accounts...
Gt back to me when you have some accurate facts wanker...

Who "planned" the Arsie withdrawal? Why weren't the Canadians withdrawn and the Arsies left to fight?
It seems from Gallipoli right to Vietnam the arsies have had a history of withdrawing!

That was hardly just an Aussie loss. We lost 8,700. The poms lost 43,000 and the Turks lost 60,000.

What a stupid, ignorant comment. We actually got up the top and stayed there.
For your information, we shook hands with the Turks at the end and have been quite friendly with them ever since.
