This is an edited sound recording of Klaus Scheuermann describing the 'welcome home' parade in Brisbane on 12 November 1970 for Australian soldiers who had just returned from South Vietnam. Scheuermann says that the 'fairly rousing welcome' made him and other members of the 8th Battalion of the Royal Australian Regiment (8RAR) feel appreciated. He mentions an earlier parade in Sydney and says that Australian soldiers who never participated in a parade with their unit tended to be 'pretty disenchanted'. The recording was made in March 2008.
