I was a New Zealand Army medic hosted by 19th Engineers at LZ North English between June- December 1968. I drove a grey jeep and my role was to visit the dispensary in Tam Quan village, assess patients, treat or transport back to our hospital in Bong Son village.
During my six month with your 19th Engineering Battalion I made many friends and through this web site have tried to unsuccessfully make contact after 48 years. In particular I am looking for 4 Engineers whom were travelling with me on the late afternoon of Thanksgiving day , Thursday 28th November
1968 when we were ambushed(roadside) whilst returning to LZ Nth English. This ambush happened at 5-10pm about 2-3 clicks South of our camp.
We were all wounded and medivacced to different hospitals ect and I have not seen these guys with whom I shared a horrific experience since that day in 1968. It is the 28th November today in New Zealand( we are one day ahead of the USA) so my thoughts return to that day once again.
I would appreciate any help or contact with these three guys whose names follow. I am not sure of there ranks, company or spelling of their names. I remember them as Bird( Bryd?)
Brown and Smith? ( Brown and Smith were returning from R&Rand were thumbing a ride back to camp when Bird and I stopped and picked them up.)
Hope there is someone in the Engineering community can advise or assist. Not understanding the American search sites or having service numbers ect has has probably led the lack of success during 40 years of searching. Enjoy your Thanksgiving and welcome home.
