The kangaroo mascot of the Siege Brigade, 36th Heavy Artillery Brigade, Royal Australian Artillery, wearing a cut down service dress jacket with the Brigade badge on the collar. The kangaroo was presented to the West Australian Section of the Siege Brigade and taken to England and France. He did not survive very long, being affected by the cold of the 1915-1916 winters and was always worried by dogs. The photograph bears the inscription 'The Siege Train Regimental Pet'.
If you were in I Corps in Vietnam before the Siege of Khe Sanh, you were familiar with the transient barracks at Danang. Marines and Corpsmen of the 26th Marines and the 9the Marines who endured the Siege, knew these environs. Thanks to The NAM for posting this photo. BRAVO! COMMON MEN, UNCOMMON VALOR.
