Thank you KT. Unfortunately I have no idea as to whether there is a connection or not. Am doing this little bit of research for a friend who is connected to the family but knows very little.......

There is this mention of "Squadron-Leader Victor Hall" [1944] but it is the only reference I have managed to find. And I don't know whether or not he is the correct man.

It is a possible Minnie :D  Alexandrina died in 1936 aged 54 and burial location, is Leamington, Cambridge.  Perhaps that is where they were living?

Edwin is Waikumete, died 1947 aged 95.

I agree, there could possibly be a connection between the Squadron-Leader and Alexandrina.

More information on this Victor Hall would be helpful but so far I have not found anything more about him.

Looks like the parents divorced.

Perhaps this is over the ditch to help with now? Just to see what they have at their fingers :D ;D
