Llewelyn has worked with The Honourable Canadian Senator William (Bill) Rompkey, on writing the history of the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) in Labrador.
This is what Bill wrote in his letter to the first get- together of the VSO teachers at Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire 1-3 August 2003,
"...Labrador called to you and we are calling you now. I hope you will do what you can during these few days to fill in the Labrador record with your recollections and reflections. This too will be an important contribution to Labrador history. But mainly I hope you enjoy your time together.
Llewelyn Pritchard has done a remarkable job in bringing you together. He is as shrewd as Holmes and as persistent as Poirot. He could even be a great Canadian! We owe him more than we can say. It's his event and I know it will be successful. All good wishes. Bill Rompkey"

Port Hope Simpson Mysteries Volume 4

Authored by Mr Pritchard M.A.

If you like solving puzzles and getting to grips with a real mystery why not join Llewelyn as he penetrates into the fascinating, murky and sordid past history of Port Hope Simpson, a coastal logging town on the east coast of wilderness Canada as he uncovers a great deal more than he bargained for ? For example, at least 6 apparent evidence discrepancies cast serious doubt about the truthfulness of a Tombstone's inscription (still standing in The Town today as a Family Memorial to events that are still not really talked about openly...for whatever reason by the recent ancestors of the deceased - to Arthur Eric Williams 27 years Welshman and his infant daughter Erica D'Anitoff Williams, grand-duaghter of Russian Count D'Anitoff. What really happened on one horrific night when the innocent three and a half year old infant girl and her 27 year old father died in most suspicious, acrimonious circumstances in the early hours of 3 February 1940 in a fire that burnt down their timber Company House in Port Hope Simpson, Labrador, Newfoundland, Canada? Eric, as he was known, was the eldest son of John Osborne Williams, owner of the Labrador Development Company Ltd logging company that operated in Port Hope Simpson from 1934 - 1941. He was sent out by his father to report on problems and issues particularly to do with the Company Store in Port Hope Simpson run by local Manager Keith Yonge...but he never returned. Was he was made to pay for the purported sins of his father? A Public Enquiry into the Affairs of the Labrador Development Company Ltd. was conducted in 1941. The results only became UK Government "Open Papers" in 1996. Maybe that says it all?
The true cause of their deaths is still not yet established. Let's look for any relevant clues within for example, 'The Times' newspapers, London, England from 1934-39 whose articles also offer touches of humour; many different historical insights into the period under scrutiny including "The Crusaders" views of the Dominion of Government, certain Commissioners being recalled to London at crucially important times in context of the 2 deaths; surveying work of the Labrador coast as well as letters from the legendary Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell K.C., who was very angry with Sir John Hope Simpson, but was that only about another matter?
