'Peter Dawson was born of Scottish parents in South Australia in 1882.  For a long time after he left school he was torn between plumbing and singing as a profession.  It is the good fortune of all the millions of people throughout the world who have enjoyed hearing his magnificent singing voice that he finally turned his back on plumbing and came to England to study under the late Sir Charles Santley.'
