Do you have the divorce papers Forfarian ? https://www.records.nsw.gov.au/item/1153552

If not, I am happy to photograph them next time I am there.

Just out of interest I see Francis was named as co-respondent in another divorce

Hi Cr,
   I don't see the middle-name that CupOfLife quoted on the marriage on NSW BDM

1907/6237

Edgar CLEGG to Matilda R HUBBARD, at Woonona

I think it was just a typo by CupOfLife

adding : But it is obviously not your man if he was born c 1904

Hi Bitzar,
I found this mention of SWPA football on trove
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article176826473

This particular item was about "that sensational game between the 5th and 13th airforces" and names a few officials and helpers.

Here a passenger describes part of the voyage of the Osterley arriving in Jan, 1916.

She describes the cruisers which accompanied the ship and the action when a submarine periscope was seen etc.

Definition of Consortium from the Cambridge English dictionary
https://dictionary.cambridge.org/us/dictionary/english/consortium

a group of companies or people with the same goal who are working together to achieve that goal


I don't see how anyone could be offended by the term.   But if I have offended them then I apologise.  I have the highest respect for your relatives and everyone elses.
