Just a couple of bits of info;
The Irish army battalion that this fighting company (A Coy) belonged to was the 35th Battalion of the Irish Army and this battle which lasted for 6 days started on Quebec Day 1961.

Of course I do not recall any mention of the battle because of the news 'black out'. I do remember the death of Dag Hammarskjold, whose plane was shot down.
