Mr Barnard asked the Minister for the Army, upon notice:

(1)   How many men enlisted in (a) the first AIF and (b) the second AIF.

(2)   How many saw active service overseas in each case.

(3)   Of those who saw active service overseas, bow many were married at the time of enlistment.

Mr Peacock - The answer to the honourable member's question is as follows:

(1)   Statistics held show that 416,809 men and women enlisted in the first AIF. A total of 727,703 enlisted in the second AIF.

(2)   The number who served overseas in the first AIF was 331,781 and in the second AIF was 396,661.

(3)   No statistics are held on the marital status of those enlisted and to obtain these statistics would involve a manual search of well over a million service dossiers.
