WWII nominal roll info :
http://www.ww2roll.gov.au/Veteran.aspx?serviceId=A&veteranId=149699

The service records held at the National Archives of Australia for that chap have not yet been uploaded to their website.  They have not yet been examined, so are not yet on open access.  DoB for that chap is 8 July 1907.

Marriage in 1929 in NSW

I wonder if Mr Cox was one of the official witnesses

# 3863/1929
Reginald J HOCKRIDGE and Dorothy NAPPER registered Waverley district.
An official transcription will have all the info, but NOT the actual autograph signatures which should be on the 1929 image.

Dorothy died 17 August 1999, aged 92, late of Riverwood.  Daily Tele 19 Aug 1999.

A snippet about J.A. McGilvray of Pineholme winning a Wagga agricultural prize in 1925 - 50 acres of
 wheat for hay
http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article102324716

A family notice for Albert PEDLEY of Griffith losing his daughter http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article155827560 in 1922.  A possibility ...
A farm in Mirool transferred to Albert PEDLEY in 1916 shows an Albert PEDLEY was a farmer near Yanco earlier and possibly kept contacts http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article156529637   

Not much so far ...

adding : 1930 Electoral Roll
Albert PEDLEY, Farm 465, Griffith, farmer
1930 Electoral Roll Wagga Wagga
James McGilvray, 124 Peter St, farmer

Thank you for the Australia research - this has been really helpful. Disappointed that he did not appear to have any relatives to go to in Australia. There goes another holiday opportunity!

Am now pursuing the Hockridge line in this country through a number of trees to see if they kept in touch.

An obit for this James McGilvray of Peter St, Wagga Wagga who died in 1937.  It says he retired from his farm in 1925 but he does have a son James Martin McGilvray

Another source for information about your father and his time in Australia is The State Library of NSW http://www.sl.nsw.gov.au/

They have some information which is closed to the public for 100 years but if you use the "Ask a librarian service" and include a copy of your birth certificate they will be happy to provide you with the information

Fascinating ... a NSW BDM certified copy of a birth certificate is certainly a fundamental document for proof of identity purposes, as it is a very tightly restricted access document under the 100 year rule.    However, a UK GRO certified copy of a birth certificate surely is not recognised as proof of identity for access to records held at NSW State Library under the 100 year rule...  I understand that UK certificates carry a warning that they are not evidence of identity.   I hope bildeston will be able obtain access to the restricted documents for his late father, perhaps by offering to supply copy of the certificate for his father's death may be sensible.

I have had experience at trying to access closed documents held by the Mitchell Library (part of the NSW State Library) and it was not an easy task, but it can be very worthwhile once access is made available.    I also have contributed to family papers held by the Mitchell, and I support the restrictions imposed by the original contributor. 

ADD I can confirm that the UK GRO certified copies of birth certificates can be ordered online by any member of the general public, including people residing outside of the UK.  You do not need to be related to the person of interest named on the birth certificate.

My elderly relatives are fascinated too ... and are looking forward to hearing about the success or otherwise of the NSW State Library's '100 year' rule.
