Senator HENTY - According to information provided by the Army, repatriation benefits will apply to service in Borneo. The necessary regulations under the Repatriation (Special Overseas Service) Act will be promulgated shortly and, as authorised by that Act, will have retrospective effect to cover the service of Australian personnel who have served in that area. Bravery or acts of gallantry performed by members of the Australian forces are recognised by awards such as the Military Cross, Military Medal or higher awards as well as by commendations, for example, the Queen's Commendation. Australian servicemen serving in South Vietnam, Borneo and Malaysia are eligible for these awards.
