Huge Congratulations to Cup of Life who's made lots and lots (well, over 3000  :) :)) of valuable contributions to Rootschat since 2012!!

Electoral Roll entries for Dudley and Gertrude

1930 at Willaroo/Willeroo Station, Tarago, his occupation: stud shepherd, she: Home duties
1934, 1936, 1943 at Willaroo/Willeroo Station, Tarago, his occupation: station manager, she: Home duties
Because it's an alphabetical roll I noticed a Rose Wilson at the same address in 1934, occ: hd
1943 also has Colin Joseph White, station hand at Willeroo Station

1949, 1954 at 'Pleasant View' Murrumburrah, his occ: grazier.
1949 shows Marjorie Phyllis White, book-keeper with them

1958, 1963 at 123 Docker St, Wagga Wagga, no occupation shown for him

1965 just Dudley Arthur, no occupation, at Bradfield (suburb of Sydney)

Comments you might find helpful: Tarago, Murrumburrah and Wagga Wagga are reasonably close to each other with the first two being farming areas while Wagga is the nearest largish town.  It's mostly grazing country, running sheep bred for wool, and his occupation of 'stud shepherd' almost certainly denotes that he was in charge of breeding.
I assume he went to Sydney after his wife's death.
