Triple differential cross-section for electron and positron impact ionization of hydrogen and helium are calculated by using the Glauber approximation along with post-collision interaction effects which are estimated classically. The present results are compared with the recent absolute data of Ehrhardt, Jung and coworkers for the electron impact case. The positron impact case is found to lead to a larger binary to recoil peak maxima ratio (compared to the electron impact case) which further increases when post-collision interaction effects are included.
