  • Description

    While some South Vietnamese troops are engaged in the new drive into Cambodia, which has already claimed at least seven lives, other troops have been involved in a less dangerous display of arms in Saigon.

    In contrast to the harsher facts of war in Saigon there's plenty of curiosity and even festivity surrounding a new exhibition of weapons captured from the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese by the South Vietnamese army.

    The weapons are being shown to the local population as a morale booster and to show off successes claimed by the South Vietnamese army inside Cambodia, an army said now to be much more progressive and with an improved morale.

    The South Vietnamese army claims to have seized more than 13-thousand individual weapons in operations carried out on its own in Cambodia and the army says it has seized 14-thousand bigger weapons operated by gun crews.

    Following its successes the South Vietnamese army is reported to be intending to keep at least 12-thousand men inside Cambodia after the American withdrawal of troops.
