This film was taken on Operation Kinghit during December 1968 during which an APC was damaged by a mine dug into a dirt road. The film shows wounded Australians, one being helped into another APC before returning to the Task Force Base for treatment. At the scene of the explosion, Australians study the damage to the APC while others make sure that no other mines are in the vicinity.
