Senator PETER RAE(10.10) —As I was saying last evening when we were debating the Veterans' Entitlements Bill and its associated Bill, I wish to raise very briefly with the Minister for Veterans' Affairs (Senator Gietzelt) the entitlement to the General Service Medal of members of the 12/40 Battalion, which served in the Java-Sumatra area and also in French Indo-China at the conclusion of the Second World War. I ask the Minister to review the entitlement to the medal for the service of members of the battalion, which, although after the conclusion of the war, saw what amounted to active service.
