VICTORIANS are being asked to dob in
dodgy car dealers.
Consumer Affairs Victoria has already
received around 20 reports this year about
possible unlicensed car traders.
"Anyone who trades in cars online, from
their home or elsewhere without a licence is
breaking the law," said Consumer Affairs
Minister Michael OBrien.
He said anyone who offers to buy, sell or
exchange four or more cars in 12 months is
deemed to be acting as a motor car trader.

THE 39th Australian Infantry Battalion
will celebrate its 70th anniversary later
To mark the occasion Carl Johnson,
who compiled Mud Over Blood, a pub-
lished memorial to the now-famous
battalion, is looking to contact families or
former members of the battalion.
Carl plans to re-release the publication
for the anniversary this year, and also for
the 70th anniversaries of a number of the
battalion's famous battles next year.
"We are seeking former veterans or
families of these, who are not known to
the 39th Infantry Battalion Association,
to contact us so they can be involved in
the re-release of this title," he said.
The photograph of Privates Paddy
Little and Reg Tierney (above) was taken at
Daley shortly after the battalion was
formed. Reg was later missing in action on
the Kokoda Track and has no known grave.
Carl would especially like to make con-
tact with Reg's family, and the families of
Leslie Balfour, Hercules Crawford, Victor
Fowler, Albert Grace, Dennis Hackett,
Thomas Herbert, Victor Holness, William
Hourigan, Harry Lubansky, John
McGrath, Sydney Moffatt, David
Priestley and Leslie Speechley.
