The most likely for the parents of Arthur are Percy George VICKERY and Florence Muriel (nee HOLMES) who married in NSW in 1913

Percy G Vickery   Florence M Holmes 191at Woonona, New South
Reg3974

The digitised record shows her father to be John William HOLMES and mother (deceased) Jane  BEEBY. Florence was born in Glasgow and 19 years at marriage.

Percy was the son of Giles ViICKERY (deceased) and Jane WILLIAMSON. He was a miner born in St Peters NSW and aged 27

The reason I am thinking they are the parents is that Florence lived at 45 Underwood Street Corrimal in 1937 which is the street address (minus the number) mentioned in the wedding announcement.

However I cannot see a birth registered for Arthur or the sister Emily mentioned in the same marriage announcement.

There is an Australian ww2 military enlistment record for a chap who is possibly your  William George WILLIAMS.

Here is the index details
https://nominal-rolls.dva.gov.au/veteran?id=795922&c=WW2

So born in the right year and right place.

He is on the electoral rolls in Launceston Tasmania with one Thora WILLIAMS.

Address 57 George St, Launceston.
He is  music teacher.

They are at this address from 1943 to 1954.

Thora was probably nee SWANN.

Bit of guesswork here!

Here in 1950 a family gathering to celebrate her parents' wedding anniversary. She attends as Mrs W G Williams of Launceston.

Here in younger days, she is bridesmaid at her brother's marriage in 1936 in New Norfolk Tas

Hi Jamjar.

I did have a special offer from Ancestry earlier this year  but when the wanted the full [price i declined. Are there any free sites that you can recommend for searching Australia.
