On the morning after an assault against Fire Support Base Coral an Australian cameraman filmed infantrymen clearing the battlefield. Dead bodies lie where they fell and equipment and weapons are strewn about, testament to the ferocity of the attack and the weight of defensive fire. Later, some Australians study the enemy weapons while another considers a bullet or shrapnel hole in his drinking mug.
