Intelligence Report - Allied Land Force, French Indo-China
Describes activities of interest to the Allied Land Force, French Indo-China.
Mentioned in the document are two Saigon area locales, Khanh Hoi Island and Thanh My Tay.
Khanh Hoi was the island just south of downtown Saigon. Thanh My Tay is the area just beyond the Saigon Zoo. If you drove
out Hong Thap Tu past AFVN, as though headed for the bridge to Long Binh, you would enter into the Thanh My Tay area. This
document gives a good snapshot of the various forces in the Saigon area, mainly the British, French, Japanese and Viet Minh.
