You are sad that our journalists and photogs have not been killed in the line of their work ? ........ during the Vietnam war 2 Singapore press photographers lost their lives. It is nothing to be proud of

Amongst others, they were honored and remembered in the commemerative book, "Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and Indochina "

a bit puzzling ? nothing to be proud of or something to be proud of....killed during the tour of duty ...:dunno:

not too sure here...journalist covering war reportage is it regarded as part of the army, or were they being ranked ?

they are not regarded as part of any army and usually are on a strictly neutral basis. most do carry light arms for some self protection but thats all. usually both sides avoid shooting the photographer, yet when bullets are flying u cant really tell..

and if u want more details, can check out uncle Ian, the angmoh from hell. he was an ex war photographer/journalist i think. yet lately he dun seem too active anymore:think:
