    Service at Upper Hutt, New Zealand

    A letter written by Francis Carroll, dated 2 June 1944, is in the Museum Library Archive. It was found at 1 Willcott Street, Mt Albert in 1985/86.

    Frank contacted the museum in September 1999 regarding the letter. He was at a loss to explain how the letter was found at the address, as it had been sent to his Aunt Aggie at 10 Gladstone Rd, Mt Albert.

    However Frank made subsequent contact with Frank's first cousin. She had moved there with her family in 1936. She said it brought back all the memories, especially of the house where the letter was found.
