"Not really an answer, but can I confirm that this is the Lingard family as they were with a party of 8? This family seems to have left the ship in Townsville. Sylvia"

Sylvia replied to Fiona Jones's discussion Passport records from 1930s
"This is not what you are asking for, but I had a bit of a look online and wondered whether this whole passport vs citizenship situation is not really straightforward as Australians were already British citizens in the 1930's: “Australian…"

"Hi Sylvia I suspect that if the NAA staff had read your recent two posts (October 28, 2019 at 19:15 and Dec 5) instead of browsing them that the SODA link problem would have leaped out and bit them on the nose. In both the links you provided by…"

Hi Sylvia, many thanks for your information on Florence Hunter, her Father was Presbyterian, her Mother Catholic. Florence was raised Presbyterian, however family suspect she may have converted to Catholicism.
I have mistyped her 2nd time to Australia, if it is correct, it would have been 1948 aboard the Ormonde. I will try and pursue the probate information that you gave me, Florence appeared to have a moveable date of birth, she was born in 1902, however at times her birth year has been recorded as 1905 and once as 1909. Thank you so much
