None of the 277 people on the list (pdf courtesy of BBC) are identifiable Australians-Imperial honours were the go until the Whitlam government abolished them and created the Order of Australia in 1975-although the request may have been limited to British names.
Documents concerning consideration of names for submission for Imperial awards, up to 1974, and the later records held by the Office of the Governor General concerning the Council of the Order of Australia, the first of which are now 37 years old, in theory, should be well into open access (now after 20 not 30 years) and available from National Archives Australia. However unlike the UK, where personal information protections in the FOI act relate only to information concerning "a living individual," there is a hurdle: our archives act (s 33(1)(g)) qualifies the right to access through a provision that protects "information or matter the disclosure of which .. would involve the unreasonable disclosure of information relating to the personal affairs of any person (including a deceased person.)"
But otherwise idle researchers out there, your time starts now!
