"I Was Only Nineteen" or "A Walk in the Light Green" is the most widely recognised song by Australian group Redgum. It was released in March 1983 and is a first person account of a typical Australian infantry soldier's experience in the Vietnam War. I put this video together, to use with my class as an educational tool in the lead-up to Anzac Day each year. I realise that some of the photos used are not from the Vietnam War and dont involve Australian troops, but feel that they add to the feeling of the clip. Thanks for watching!
