Dear Joe,
Walter Wilkinson assisted by Winnifred W was engaged by the Australian
Children's Theatre run by Joan and Betty Rayner in 1954. (see CLARK
"Strolling Players" 1972 Lansdowne Press).  I have an advertising leaflet in
the archive here for that tour.  The last I heard of the manuscript for
Puppets Through Australia was that it was in a tea-chest full of photos and
his other writings in the village of Braunton in Devon close to Selworthy
where WW. may have lived at one time. The owner was not interested in doing
anything with it and at that time had a rather 'dog in the manger attitude'.
Hope that helps a little.
Richard Bradshaw may be able to give you more information about the
Australian tour.
Best wishes
Ray DaSilva

I would be interested to hear answers to these as well.  I have his 
book series, which chronicles his travels with his puppets.
