More Info →Letter to Margaret Loveday

Letter from Palmerston North to Mrs Margaret Loveday and her son Alan in London. The letter refers to their move out of London, due to the commencement of World War Two. The writer also talks about the effects of the war on Palmerston North and New Zealand. Alan Raymond Loveday was born 29 February 1928 in Palmerston North, to Margaret (nee Rickard) and Leslie Loveday. Playing the violin from an very early age, a local benefit concert was held to raise funds to send the 11-year-old Alan with his mother Margaret to the UK for violin lessons, where he became a pupil of Albert Sammons. They arrived earlier in 1939.
