Jones - Holliday
The Marriage took place at St. Mary’s Church, Rushden, on Saturday, by special licence, of Miss Sarah Holliday, second daughter of Mr. and Mrs. T. Holliday, of 16 Oswald-road, Rushden, to Sergt. David Jones (7th R.W.F.), only son of Mr. and Mrs. David Jones, of 5 Poplar-terrace, Machynllyth. The Rev. P. E. Robson officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, was charmingly gowned in white voile, with white hat trimmed with a white ostrich feather. Her jewellery consisted of a gold bracelet, the gift of the bridegroom. One bridesmaid was in attendance—Miss Emily Holliday (sister of the bride), who was tastefully costumed in navy blue, with white voile blouse and grey tagel hat trimmed with roses. Subsequent to the ceremony, a reception was held at the bride’s home, and later in the day Sergt. and Mrs. Jones left for Cambridge for the honeymoon, the bride wearing for travelling a fawn costume trimmed with military braid. A number of useful wedding gifts were received. Sergt. Jones, when billeted in Rushden, was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. Spriggs, of 3 Harborough-road, Rushden. He fought in the Gallipoli campaign and we understand, lost a forefinger. Although he had received his discharge from his Majesty’s forces, he has rejoined for the duration of the war.
