In this clip Viv speaks about Total and the surrounding area where the Transport Platoon was stationed. He recalls shots being fired occasionally in the area as soldiers made their way to the long drop [latrine] but states that he never personally came under fire. He also states that he didn't come into contact with any belligerents as far as he is aware. He speaks of his feeling at the time that the United Nations blue beret would protect him.
