Sir CHARLES MARR (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Can the Minister for the Army say whether it is a fact that 57 members of the famous Sixth Division, who fought in Libya, Greece and Crete, and who were, as a result, more or less nervous wrecks, were later charged with mutiny, and sentenced to two years' imprisonment in Long Bay gaol? Is it a fact that the officer, who is alleged to have been primarily responsible for the trouble, was later returned to Australia with his papers marked " Services no longer required " ? Will the Minister table the papers dealing with this matter?
