 SP5 Larry W. Thomas' 1969 Quan Loi Video

Larry W. ThomasWhile in Vietnam SP5 Larry W. Thomas, F Battery 16th Artillery, purchased an 8 mm movie camera from the PX shortly before leaving country, with the idea he would be able to film his infant son when he arrived home. Larry said he had the camera for only a few days in Vietnam. In the remaining days he had at Quan Loi in 1969 Larry made just this one video of Quan Loi Base Camp and F Battery 16th Artillery with the idea he would be able to show it to his family when he arrived home.  We are lucky Larry kept the film and years later had it digitized and now shares a copy with us.

Although Larry’s video is short, it does give you a good image of Quan Loi, especially Larry’s 155 mm towed howitzer battery.

Bill Wynne's F Btry Photos

Many thanks to Bill Wynne for sending some of his photos from his days with F Battery 16th Artillery in Vietnam.  For those of you who do not know, the 6/27th Artillery had a 155mm howitzer battery attached in late 1968 or early 1969.  This battery was F /16th Artillery which some considered the 6/'27th's "D" Battery.   For a time F Btry was located at Quan Loi.  Bill has included photos of F Battery's guns, FDC and personnel while at  Quan Loi and some other locations. His photos are a welcome addition to the website and will help tell the complete story of the 6/27th Artillery in Vietnam.  I think you will find them of great interest so check them out.


Recently added photos to Bill's galleries are a second page of photos and a PDF which can be downloaded for viewing.  Be sure to view them also!
