Public Contributions:

He was born on the 11th of August 1919 and went by his middle name Linton. Linton was an accomplished musician and played the violin very well according to older family members that met him and were alive when he was. He also had a very bad stutter and was quite hard to understand when you were talking to him but he was a good singer and the stutter went away when he sang. I have inherited Linton's violin and am currently playing it. His violin had been sitting in an attic all these years and I only learnt of it's existence in the last year but have since had it restored and it plays beautifully and sounds amazing. His violin is a Compagnon. [Record since amended - NZWGT] ... Read More
