There is a daughter, Nora Jean, born to Jas Hy WRIGHT and Florence Maud WILDER in Elsternwick in 1917 (reg 11591). Fits location-wise - born while Jas was serving (possibly even after his death).

His widow applied for free passage for herself and her 3 children to go to England from Australia in 1919.

Seems they did not go, as by 1923 the 3 children (a son and 2 daughters - Winifred A., James Wm and Nora Jean) are under legal guardianship of their grandmother, Mary Ann Wilder, of Ascot Vale. Sadly, Florence Maud died in 1923 aged only 35, in Ascot Vale (reg 94), daughter of Wm WILDER and Mary Ann BARBER.

Mary Ann WILDER died at the amazing age of 99 in Fitzroy, in 1959 (reg 2275), daughter of Wm BARBER & Elizabeth WRIGHT.

Marriages Mar 1906 (>99%)

WILDER Florence Maud Woolwich 1d 1248
Wright James Henry F Woolwich 1d 1248

With Jas at the time of the accident were Pte James Robert Thos TELFER and Lance Cpl Thomas Wm JOYCE. They were all killed when a stokes mortar bomb exploded prematurely and a court of enquiry found them not to be at fault.

It would help to know Jas' parents names...might be able to track down brother Sidney.

I can't find Jas & Florence's arrival but did find her mother, Mrs M A WILDER, aged 64, arriving in Victoria in July 1921.

P.S. Possible marriage of Jas Wm to Evelyn Jessie GALE in Victoria in 1937 (reg 13221). Can't find the girls sorry.
P.P.S. Could James have inherited longevity from his grandmother?
