To Thi Nau, (aka Minh Hoang), a 23-year-old Viet Cong woman captured with a radio in the Nui Dinh Hills west of Nui Dat on 24 October 1966. To was subsequently proven to be a National Liberation Front cadre active in propaganda, indoctrination and intelligence gathering. She was interrogated in a tent at the 1st Australian Task Force Base (1ATF) for approximately 30 minutes on 27 October 1966 before being handed over to Republic of Vietnam (RVN) authorities.
