It's only a possibilty, still can't find a link to Francis BRYEN.  ;)

However, looks like Archibald and Catherine (married 1905) divorced in 1924

I think in 1942 Francis Charles BRYEN was in Rabaul in  local military unit ie. not Australian Army, so possibly a civilian resident. Did Francis and Dorothy marry outside Australia?
