If you google Walter Mervyn Smith you get this link to a sydney morning herald legal notice.

Walter Mervyn SMITH confuses me.

There's a burial of a Walter Mervyn SMITH in the Griffith Cemetery (NSW) in 1973 (age 45, birth year 1928). But there are electoral rolls showing Walter Mervyn SMITH every year from 1930 to 1954.

A family tree on A******y has the same name born in 1905 with the 1973 death but no sources, married to a Joyce Helen. Joyce Helen is at the same address as Walter in the ER.

I wonder how many Walter Mervyn SMITH's there are? And is this one linked to yours?

I would love to think my Walter Mervyn 1905 has a son named after him born 1928 but cannot jump that far ahead. Not sure where to go from here without spending fortunes on Australian certs, I was shocked by the prices.

Sorry that was a hurried suggestion before I dashed off as I thought it was a fairly uncommon combination and worth checking.

Now when I check NSW BDM I see that there were 2 Walter Mervyn Smith's who died in 1973 (who'd have thought?).  But neither is the right one or the son of the right one.
One has parents John and Mary Jane and the other has parents William Ambrose and Annie Cecilia.

And another Walter Mervyn Smith died in 1979 with father James.

I assume you have the details of Walter's marriage to Beryl in India?
I've checked the electoral rolls for her name as well and haven't come across anything with potential.

It's the second record when you search Walter Mervyn SMITH in familysearch.org. It seems to match up but would need confirmation.
