From page 1 Mrs Roberts thanked mem­bers of the Koon­doola Peace Park work­ing group, which in­cluded Wan­neroo RSL and VCA mem­bers, for their con­tri­bu­tion to the project.

Dr Nguyen said he ap­proached the City about hav­ing a mon­u­ment to com­mem­o­rate the Bat­tle of Long Tan and ap­pre­ci­ated the re­sult of the project.

“It will be a good place for any­one who wants to re­flect about Aus­tralian his­tory,” he said.

Wan­neroo RSL pres­i­dent Jack Le Cras said the vet­er­ans’ sub-branch would also look at hold­ing ser­vices at the park in the fu­ture.

Dr Nguyen said the first part of the April 29 event would be un­veil­ing the art­work, with the an­nual Black April com­mem­o­ra­tion of the Fall of Saigon on April 20, 1975 to fol­low.
