This should make you happy. I came across your Ernest John Martyr. There are numerous pages of his World War I records and personal particulars online at the National Archives of Australia web site. Go to the site at:
http://www.naa.gov.au/the_collection/recordsearch.html
Search on name:
There are 2 files on him. They show as-
1.MARTYR ERNEST JOHN : Service Number - 11839 : Date of birth - 17 Mar 1897 : Place of birth - SYDNEY NSW : Place of enlistment - MELBOURNE : Next of Kin - ELLEN
--------------------------------------------------------
2.MARTYR Ernest John : Service Number - N92401 : Place of Birth - Sydney NSW : Place of Enlistment - West Maitland NSW : Next of Kin - (Cousin) KENNEDY John

Note that in file 2 (WWI) you can view/print his documents by clicking on 'View digital copy'. I'm not sure what the first file entry represents, but the Archives is most helpful and does provide copies.

Somehow, I expect your Maryrs are most likely linked to those we are studying. There is a line from Dr.Charles Martyr R.N Naval Hospital, Nova Scotia m. Margaret McLean in 1817. Their son, John James b.1819 Greenwich, Kent, came to Australia, m.Helena Green. John James Martyr was a surveyor and worked in Maitland and Goulburn NSW areas.
Hapy to discuss further (maybe off-forum). Mick Mecham
