Sir CHARLES MARR (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - When members of the Australian Imperial Force returned to Australia some time ago instructions were issued that the word " Australia " was to be removed from their uniform. As the result of the outcry against this instruction the Minister for the Army revoked it, but some returned men have been fined considerable sums for wearing the badge. In view of the revocation of the instruction, I now ask the Minister whether he will remit the fines inflicted on these men?
