Ian and Ricardo - Platoon 1, 3 SAI, somewhere across the 'kaplyn' May 1, 1980, Operation 'Liberation 1". Note the 60mm and R1 rifle were carried. That's over 10kg plus four 60mm rounds at 1.4kg (total 5.6kgs) and four R1 mags took total to near 20kgs and that's not counting water or food. I was nearly always spared having a turn carrying the platoon B25 radio.
