    Background: As the last American combat troops pulled out of Cambodia on Monday (29th June) military officials foresaw difficulties for South Vietnamese forces remaining in the country.

    It is expected the main problems will be a loss of mobility due to the withdrawal of American helicopters, and the ending of the United States air strikes in support of South Vietnamese ground operations.

    Meanwhile U.S. troops have continued their long task of unloading arms and gear back onto South Vietnamese territory, and the checking of inventories. The last American combat troops involved in the withdrawal, completed the manoeuvre just 24 hours ahead of the deadline set by President Nixon.

    American soldiers time to photograph the historical move, and for some, it was also a chance to catch up on some relaxation.

    Meanwhile the fight against the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces in Cambodia continues for the local and South Vietnamese forces.... a fight unlikely to see an immediate settlement.
