Do you recognise these North Burnett names?

MONTO resident Derek Bound needs your help.

"I am going to Vietnam with a group of Vietnam veterans in September for the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan," he said.

"There are three men from the area that were involved, and their names are written on a memorial cairn outside the Monto RSL. We know one is Lance Corporal Phillip Goody, but don't know who the other two are."

The unknown names are Private Sunnerdale JC and Flight Sergeant Ryals C.

Mr Bound is led to believe they are from Eidsvold and Bancroft.

"If they can be identified, I'm happy to put a wreath on the place where they have fallen," he said.

Monto serviceman Mike Smith will join Mr Bound on the journey. Anyone with information can phone Mr Bound on 41661441.
