Costello Family Archive

This collection consists of thirteen handwritten letters, one telegram, and four small photographs. Most of the letters were written by Andrew Costello who served as a pilot in the Royal Air Force in World War Two. The addresses on the envelopes indicate that family members, when not at Windsor Station, Charters Towers, would stay at Lowth's Hotel in Townsville. One letter written by a fellow-pilot of Andrew’s to Andrew's mother, dated 3 July 1941, states, "It grieves me deeply to have to write to you today of the tragic passing of a well loved friend and comrade of ours - your son Andrew."
