I’m not saying we should have won. That would have been preferable of course to losing, but the way it was done was a heap of shit because we left many, many good South Vietnamese people in the lurch and it was like turning your back on your best mate and walking away. It shouldn’t have happened. That is politics though… Nothing to do with us, but it left a very nasty, dirty taste in a lot of people’s mouths. It still does." -Corporal Anthony Hughes, 7RAR.
