Re: Australia Female relative badge WW2

Looking at ER for his parents in 1963 Charters Towers there’s:
Jack a concrete worker with Margaret Edith h/d and a Sidney Charles Bunting railway employee at Oxford st Charters Towers..

1972/1977/1980 - Sidney Charles Bunting is at 7 Johnstone st Stratford 4872 (Leichardt Qld) on his own

Re: Australia Female relative badge WW2

Gibbo,
in his Service record has this about the badge..

Received from Officer-in-charge – Warwick, Female Badge no: 67033 date is 31st Oct 1942 signed M.E. Bunting so that would make it his Mother.

Leslie made a claim for Repat 28/11/1963
