Thanks Stephen. My grandfather was interned at Loveday circa 1941-1943. Last year we visited the Loveday display at Barmera Visitors Centre, and then briefly visited the remains of the camp. We also contacted Rosemary Gower, who has made the history of Loveday her passion. We purchased a DVD on the camp from the Visitors Centre.

Not a lot remains of the camp and we intend to return this year to explore the camp further. Your article and photographs will greatly assist us as we wander around.
