There is not a lot the National Archives can do to help you without more information. (There are 906 with the surname 'Andrews' who served in the Australian Army in WWII.)  You really need the man's given names through family history research (family letters and stories, births, deaths and marriage certificates, immigration passenger lists etc.)

You could try:

1) the Australian War Memorial: www.awm.gov.au

2) the Military History Society of Australia: http://www.mhsa.org.au/index.html

They might be able to comment on the uniform or suggest other avenues for you to investigate, but I think it will come back to you finding given names first.

Thank you for taking the time to reply and advise me
