I guess Mr Jones would have seen out his Public Servant years in HK, and then retired back to the UK - at age 60 - or whatever the retirement age was for a Public Servant.  (around 1966?)

Raymond Eric Jones was the son of Martha Jones, a widow by the time he was 5 years old. He had a 2 year old sister Ethel Jones. They were living at 4 St Marks Court Lincoln at that stage.

He was born in Lincoln, Lincolnshire in the Dec qtr of 1905. 7a/499

I think sister Ethel was born there in the Sep qtr of 1908. 7a/523

Is this useful - if your lady was born Dec 18 her birth may not have been registered until the New Year.

I know that there was a great deal of empty residential flats out there in 1943, (there had been some mini subs skirting around Sydney Harbour in 1942)....  So rentals would have been easy to find and cheap too.   I think the property would have been known as "Buckingham" and they were in No. 4 of the flats there.   And "Buckingham" would be somewheres on Beach Road.  I will see if I can figure out who else was at "Buckingham" in 1943.

 ;D

The 1943 Electoral Roll,  Electorate of Wentworth, subdistrict of Bondi (not Bondi North, and not Bondi Beach)....

Going through the alpha lists ..... Already I have spotted a chap at 17 Buckingham,  Beach Road, Bondi.   So, I am becoming confident that it was a rental address.

House in need of some maintenance at that address JM.  Looks as though it may be quite old but has been 'renovated' and original architectural features gone.

The address of Rutland Road, Skigness about the time of Dorothy M's birth is occupied by Acton Robert CUMMING, his wife Florence and son Robert Acton along with Annie MAINER and I think should be MAWER, who works in her sister's boarding house.

Marriages Dec 1907 with poor transcribing....  
CUMING    Acton Robert S   Sculcoates    9d/423   
CUNNING    Acton Robert S   Sculcoates    9d/423     
MAWER    Florence         Sculcoates    9d/423


Births Dec 1910  
CUMMING    Robert A    Spilsby 7a/509

Cheers

On 4th March 1947 Dorothy Marjorie JONES, housewife, aged 35, together with daughter aged 6, sailed on the 4th March 1947 from Southampton for Hong Kong, China on board the Strathmore.
Their last address was given as 28 Rutland Road, Skegness. They intended to remain in Hong Kong.

Oops sorry I didn't quote where I had found the address previously.
