I note you have edited your initial post.

You have changed the birthdate you first gave to the one you now wish recorded.

Would you be kind enough to modify it again to add a note that you have made this change.

The thread looks inconsistent and "silly" as it stands.

An obit for Mary Josephine CUNNINGHAM http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article99330584
(much the same info from death notice that Sue gave)

Possibly her sons' WW2 service summary (with NOK Roger CUNNINGHAM)

William John CUNNINGHAM http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?serviceId=A&veteranId=234993

Roger Joseph CUNNINGHAM http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?ServiceId=A&VeteranId=122794

Eric Noel CUNNINGHAM http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?serviceId=N&veteranId=1102420

Ros

adding : this probably rules out Eric Noel CUNNINGHAM as here it says he is a twin to Reginald Joseph CUNNINGHAM

Hard to know whether to persevere with this as the reported age at death of this James CUNNINGHAM is still 14/15 years out, even with the reviewed date of birth.

This man would be too young to marry and be having a son in the timeline we are looking at.

Birth of the Roger under discussion-

CUNNINGHAM  Roger
24637/1886
James & Ellen
At WOONONA

OP implies his James immigrated alone and would therefore, at that time, have taken a fare-paying passage.
