Is there any way you could summarise what you know about the two sisters you are looking for.  I doubt anyone new to your research is going to plough through all the pages trying to work out what is relevant.  If you are not prepared to name them, the assumption is that they are still alive, and as you have not named them it makes it difficult for someone new to look for them.

Chempat, you’ll find the names here: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/245563470

Audrey is deceased, but no surname given. She may have married.

The other sister is alive and I think her surname makes the task difficult to pin her down.

Kandi, you have been informed previously that you cannot post the names of those who may be living.

Do remove the name of the sister who is not proven deceased.

As suggested, this is a very rough summary of the findings of the thread.
Really just the bare bones of it :D

Roy Robt Walters born 1895 at Port Melbourne, 
Father   Edwd Walters, Mother Charl Phyllis Roberts.

1918 he married during WW1 in UK to Phyllis Queenie Wilson using his birth name.
Despite documented intentions, never brought her to Aust.
 
In 1922 Was sought in Qld for unstated  reasons under names James Marcus Dodds, James Marcus Roberts, James Marcus Walters.

In 1923 he was listed as a missing person named Roy Robert Walters in Freshwater (either NSW or QLD) Sought by Eileen Walters, her identity unclear.

In 1927 he married to Mary Elizabeth WHITE using the name John Moris DODD.

The following years to 1949 him enlist in the WW2 forces, and see him located as living sometimes with his wife and sometimes elsewhere. She maintained the surname DODD, and settled in Tasmania.

There were 4 children who were surnamed DODD. Certainly one of these Bruce DODD is deceased 1993. The names which OP is seeking are two daughters.
 
Roy died in 1954. https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/245563470

I know this reply is coming well over a year late so apologies for reviving a dead thread. I wanted to confirm that the sister mentioned (Phyllis Louisa Dodd or Walters) is deceased.

The 1954 death notice of her father, Roy Robert Walters (alias James Marcus John Moris Dodds), refers to Phyllis as Mrs Jones: https://trove.nla.gov.au/newspaper/article/245563470?searchTerm=%22Roy%20Robert%22%20Walters.

In 1949, Phyllis Louisa was living at Charles St, Launceston with her husband George Robert William Jones (and later at other addresses in Launceston). This is the same address as Phyllis' mother, Mary Elizabeth.

Phyllis (d 1980) is buried with her husband George (d 1990) at Car Villa Cemetery in Launceston. See, respectively, https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/212880136/phyllis-louisa-jones and https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/212879683/george-robert_william-jones.

Hope this helps.

Sarah
