Jan,  I think that project was put on hold - you can request them now but they are not cheap - depends on how many pages the record contains as to the cost

Lesley,   You can request a copy of his file - there is a fee involved

https://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/SearchNRetrieve/Interface/DetailsRe...

alternatively if you can get to Canberra to the National Archives you can view his record for no charge

How do you fine some one in the war that use a different name  plz

Debbie,  It would be difficult if the alias was not known about

I have this site for WW1 alias

https://www.aif.adfa.edu.au/aliases.html

Also if they used an alias you never know if their listed birthdate/birthplace are inaccurate as well
