Caption: Dump Truck hit mine on Route 1 going Southbound from Tam Ky to Chu-Lai.
If memory serves me at this age, the dump truck was part of a convoy that was headed to DaNang from the main CP in Chu Lai. Pvt Dines was the radio operator providing communications for the convoy with a PRC-25 in the back of the dump truck. The report that I got at the time was the truck backed over a 500 lb mine while trying to negotiate a turn in a village. The turn was too sharp for the truck and when the truck backed down an alley in order to complete the turn, it backed over the mine. I am not sure but I think the object of the convoy was to take TD29's to DaNang for A company to use.
