Citizen Military Forces - could this be the Aus equivalent of "Dad's Army"? :)
Actually Militia. Here's an example of an attestation form: http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/snapshots/defence-service/between-a7.aspx

Thanks Sylvia. Possibly although Rodney John Ivory would have been in his twenties at the time of the assault.

I have had a look at Trove and found several articles of interest. Constance Edith appears to have ben known as Edith. She was a teacher, like her mother and grandmother. She married Dallas Sidney George Lister in September 1952. She was friends with his sister, Jennifer, so I guess that's how they met.

There were a few slight mistakes in the document which details the settling up of my great-grandfather's estate. I also have a copy of the will. Both documents were sent to my grandma by the solicitors after they had settled everything. The good thing about it is that it gives the dates of birth of all of his grandchildren aged under 21 when probate was granted which was helpful.

I am going to try and contact my second cousin via the company address you mentioned. Hopefully he will reply.
