Yes, we have all the certificates of the children and the parents marriage. The dates of marriage on each birth certificate we know to be false.

Why would the dates of marriage on each birth certificate be false?   Was this to cover up births prior to marriage in 1957.

Perhaps Mabel's birth registration is indexed and available online and showing birth registered WA Northam and perhaps she has living siblings whose births are indexed there too.  (WA goes to 1932 at present).

Has contact been made with Mabel's siblings or their descendants seeking any family knowledge or thoughts about her marriage?

....

Passenger Lists. Among other things, if your family immigrated after 1921, you may just find it listed on the National Archives Site. Dates of birth are often included. Be sure to check.

2000 plus pages ... arrivals 1954,  perhaps you may find the one in his name.

Thank you to JM for the hint and a private message received through this chat, and the generosity of all who have taken the time to respond, I have just been emailed the 1954 Immigration record of GJF. What a day!

Yes,  my elderly rellie (retired NAA Archivist)  has just found the IMMI card too.   I was about to send you a PM.

Please do remember that the information in that card may well be information about a living Australian, and as it clearly identifies that person, it is sensitive information, and ought not be re-published.

ADD,  I am not the person who has sent you a PM,  nor do I have your email address and I have not sent you an image of the IMMI card.

According to Electoral Roll-
In 1958 a chap named Thomas Charles DHUE, a farm labourer lived at the address given on the immigration card.

There are hints in newspapers that he was there earlier, around 1953/4.

He was born in 1922 and died in 1984, interred Karrakatta.
I have not confirmed his relationship to the 1957 bride, but I suppose possibly her brother.   

He married in 1944 and there was  a divorce about 4 years later.

Details not really relevant.

ADDING,
Perhaps the two men were mates in the forces

Do you think itís possible the marriage to Mavis/Mabel  in 1957 was a legal thing perhaps to reinforce a marriage that had previously taken place in some form in Japan?  What was her occupation?
