Looking for information on two Naval Officers


I'm looking for information or the whereabouts of two naval officers. They could possibly still be alive.

Walter John Jarvis Smith - Born 10th March 1933 in Eumundi, QLD. Service number: 44028. He joined the service in 1951.

Raymond Thomas Ford - Born 5th July 1939 in Rockhampton, QLD. Service number: R55199. Joined in 1959.

Both men joined in Brisbane.

Both men spent most of their time in the service in Sydney.

And both men were married and divorced from JOAN DOROTHY JOHNSTONE Born 1931.

Walter was married to Joan from the 25th March 1952 until 15th January 1959. Walter returned to QLD with his two daughters around 1958 maybe a bit earlier. Walter remarried a lady called Elaine Margaret (not sure of maiden surname).

Raymond was married to Joan from the 15th December 1962 until 29th August 1972. I believe she may have had 3 boys in this marriage and I am aware of a Raymond Thomas Ford Junior.

Joan is my Aunt but I have never met her. She left our family many years ago. Late 60s or early 70s. Never to be seen or heard from again.

I need to contact these two men who may be able to shed some light on Joan.

Thank you
