Hi Liz,

Up until the 1937 ERs - Ethel May was registered as Ethel may LIDDICOAT,

1930 ERs - Ethel May LIDDICOAT is living at 251 Penshurst Street, CHATSWOOD (same address as Francis Patrick DOLLING).

1936 & 37 ERs - she is living at SPENCER, NSW - so she was with Francis Patrick DOLLING but using her previous name.

They are not listed on 1943 ERs so that is why she eventually turns up as Ethel May DOLLING on the 1949 ERs.

Kerrie,  Thanks for the info on the Wall of Remembrance - seeing as he didn't die until 1951 would he only have that plaque if they had considered that his health had been badly affected by the war?
He was discharged in 1919 and was in a bad way so we have been told - I found his wife Harriet was getting some sort of pension after he returned home (listed on NAA) - she had one child
His other two children to Ethel were refused benefits
Harriet also applied for a widows badge in 1951

Hi Liz,

It seems that Frank & Harriett never got around to divorcing - hence she was able to claim the DVA Pension and the Widow's Badge.

My father was deemed to have died from a war related condition in 1972. Whilst he is buried in the Lakeside Memorial Park just south of WOLLONGONG - he also has a War Graves Commission Plaque on the Wall at ROOKWOOD. The War Graves Commission also paid for his plaque in the lawn cemetery at Lakeside.

Yes, I believe that to be the case. My Dad served WWII and died 1999 after finally being on a DVA pension.

This is strange - I have just checked the Garden of Remembrance site and he is not listed

I think Harriet must have his war medals as well
