TO REBUILD CAMBODIA FREE FROM LANDMINE CONTAMINATION
Tony "Bomber" Bower-Miles was a young engineer in the Australian Army when he first went to Vietnam in the late 1960's. Land mines, in particular US made M16 anti-personnel mines, were one of the major threats faced by our troops, and much of Bomber's work involved cleaning up their aftermath along with other explosive ordnance devices (EOD's) positioned by the enemy and used to great effect against Australian troops.
Bomber returned to South East Asia, putting his minefield breaching and
clearance skills to work in the task of locating and destroying some of
the 4 to 6 million land mines that still contaminate Cambodia. On a
shoestring budget, Bomber established the Vietnam Veterans' Mine Clearing
Team. In early 2008 the Vietnam Veterans Mine Clearing Team - Cambodia Inc
was registered as an incorporated entity in Queensland. (IA:36313) and
registered with the Australian Government Business Register (ABN. 22 868
580 912). It is also a registered Charity in Queensland.
Each of the mine detectors purchased by us from Minelab Australia for the de-mining operation in Cambodia has a plaque attached in honour of one of the Engineers killed during the war in Vietnam.
