Letter

Lost World War II love letter addressed to Port-of-Spain finally delivered, 72-years later

Seventy-two years ago, a love letter that was meant to be delivered to a sailor based in Trinidad got lost.

It has now been delivered to the rightful owner.

The letter, postmarked May 1945, was written by a woman named Virginia to her husband, Rolf Christoffersen, who was a sailor at the time in the Norwegian Navy based in Chaguaramas, Trinidad and Tobago.

Melissa Fahy and her father found the letter in a gap under the stairs while renovating her Westfield, New Jersey home.
