Thank you Tonkin for your information it has helped me start on the research for my Great Grandmother Frances Catherine Hebden. We had found out only recently that there was a mix up with her names, as my Great Grandfather had to get copies of all her papers when she passed away, unfortunately as yet I haven't found these documents in my mothers collection. There is a lot of information about her brother Robert Hebden Brodribb on Trove (newspaper articles). I haven't confirmed it yet but he was supposed to have been given a medal in the war. I also have put together information on her husband, my Great Grandfather John Webster Lawson, he was an artist, trained in England.

Robert Hebden Brodribb was born around 1885 as he was 29 years 8 months when he enlisted on 18 August 1914. He joined the 11th Battalion from Kalgoorlie WA. He was quite severely wounded and returned to Australia 29 July 1915. There have been some reports that he was awarded the Distinguished Conduct Medal, but I don't think he was ever awarded the medal (according to his military records) but I do think he was recommended for one. I think he must have gone to Kalgoorlie for work as a teacher as it seems all his family were in Ararat.

Also I am trying to find out more information on Thomas Brodribb who worked as The Inspector General of Schools Victoria and wrote a book called Health & Temperance Manual in 1981. We have a copy in our possession and my Great Grandfather John Webster Lawson was married to Frances Catherine Hebden and he was the Art Director at Sale Technical College from 1909 to 1928. We were wondering if there was a family connection or just a coincidence. Can anyone help me? Thank You
