10th June 1944
During the week of D-day somehow or other my mam and dad managed to get married. All leave was cancelled and my mam thought the wedding would not be going ahead until she received a telegram 48 hours before to say my dad had managed to get leave. His best man (also in the navy) managed to make it too. My dad was a submariner so I can only think that perhaps submarines did not play a big part in D-day.
My mam had just turned 20 on the 7th June. so an exciting week . Her wedding suit was a pale silvery blue colour. They married in a registry office and had a small reception back and my mam's parents house. They were happily married for 39 years until my dad died in 1983.
I have attached a close up of them in the extras.
