Laurel M Hookings did actually marry Francis James. They are buried together at Centennial Park Cemetery. Her ashes were interred on 27 Mar 2001.
https://www.centennialpark.org/memorial-search/laurel-mary-bosanquet-498748/

That's fairly recent so the cemetery might still have viable family contact details, if you contact the cemetery to find out.

Her death notice appeared in The Advertiser on 24 Oct 2000, according to the Savil Index (which lists when it occurred, not what it said)

Her full name was Laurel Mary Hookings born 1911 in Adelaide.

Francis James Bosanko joined the Militia for a year! The exclamation point is because the service record provides good civilian info - you can download the service record from the NAA site. Search on  "Francis James Bosanko" on the home page, and then click "View digital copy" from the Item Details Page which the search takes you straight to.

I'm not sure how much of a done deal the Bosako / Bosanquet thing is, but it looks like a serious possibility to me. The service record neither proves nor disproves it. It shows FJB still in Victoria in 1931-1932 and still single.

thanks for all the help.... I had seen most of the articles in trove and am assuming this stage that the Besanko becomes Bosanquet
