A double military wedding

A soldier on leave got married to his sweetheart.


Miss Florence Savory was married at our church on Saturday, October 27th, to Mr Arthur Jacob Hailstone of Tilehurst, the service being conducted by the Pastor, Rev. E J Perry….

An interesting feature was the presence at the marriage of the bride’s brother-in-law, Mr Heath, who is back again in England for training as a Commissioned Officer. Mr Hailstone has been serving with the forces also for about 18 months, so that in a double sense it was a military wedding.…

We take this opportunity of wishing Mr and Mrs Hailstone all happiness in the years ahead, and trust that the husband’s military duties will soon cease.
