Hi Paul,

You need to search here when you are looking for a catalogue entry on RecordSearch http://www.naa.gov.au/collection/search/index.aspx  (Search the Collection)

If you search for Walter HANCOCK, this is one of the results:


This person's DOB matches Wally's stats.  He married Amy TOWNER in 1926 in Sydney.

Quite a lot on TROVE:
