Wednesday, 31 July 1946

Mr FORDE -I asked this morning for certain information to be obtained on this subject which may. cover the question raised by the honorable member. Recruiting in all commands of the Australian Military Forces was resumed on the 15th February, 1946. Conditions of enlistment were similar to those applicable to personnel volunteering during the war years. Up to the week ended the 20th July, 1946, the total enlistments were 9,818. Of that number 9,675 volunteered for service in Japan. Of the total enlistments, 1,402 personnel had previously served on full time duty in the Royal Australian Navy, the Australian Military Forces, or the Royal Australian Air Force.
