Long Tan Cross

Long Tân, Bà Rịa–Vũng Tàu, Đất Đỏ District, Ba Ria - Vung Tau, Vietnam

Memorial

The Long Tan Cross is a memorial that was erected by the 6th Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment on 18 August 1969 to mark the site of the Battle of Long Tan, which was fought three years earlier during the Vietnam War. While the cross was removed following the Communist victory in 1975 and used to commemorate a priest, it was recovered by the Đồng Nai Province Museum in 1984 and placed on display.
