Signals Coral Balmoral Veterans awarded the UCG

Signals Coral Balmoral Veterans
Gee it looks good and still looks new after 50 years!

The Signals Coral Balmoral Veterans that were involved in the battle in South Vietnam, May/June 1968 have been awarded the Unit Citation for Gallantry (UCG).  All members  who were part of the 1st Australian Task Force (Forward) [1ATF (Fwd)] will receive the award.  The Signal veterans were from 104 Sig Sqn (Fwd) and detachments from 110 Sig Sqn (Force Signals), 547 Sig Tp (SIGINT) plus the 53rd Sig Bn (US Army).  Signalman Alexander Young from 104 Sig Sqn was KIA during the battle and three other 104 Sig Sqn members WIA.

While the battle veterans will receive this award, many Signals veterans on the other end of the communication links sadly will not.  Your contribution will never be forgotten by the 1ATF (Fwd) battle veterans.  There are also many unnamed battles that occurred in South Vietnam that Signals had involvement which were not acknowledged.  We the 'Battle Prontos' will wear the UCG on behalf of all Signals Vietnam Veterans - we all did our country proud!

Rest in Peace Alex
