As the words ‘Fire Support Base’ imply, artillery was central to operations at Coral and Balmoral. Although the guns played a defensive role during North Vietnamese attacks on both bases, their main purpose was to protect infantry patrolling outside the wire. In an indication of the volume of fire provided by the guns, these shells constitute a resupply for 102 Field Battery at Coral.
