The school children had holiday, and the village was gaily decorated with flags and bunting, while the beautiful 13th century church, with many features not unlike the transepts of York Minster, was filled to overflowing with the parishioners and relatives and friends of the bride and bridegroom. Both families have rendered signal service to the state. The bride's father was for many years chaplain to the Forces in India, and his brothers and sons have almost without exception served or are serving, in one or the other of the services. The bridegroom has already done "his bit," for he was invalided home from the front some months ago, and is now almost recovered, anxious, to return to the fighting line. His brothers, too, all hold his Majesty's commission. . . .The officers who formed the guard of honour were : Col. Herbert, Major Berkeley, Captain W. Hunnybun, Captain Warwick, Captain Laurence, Capt. Mellows, Capt. Garrood, Lieut. Dymoke, Lieut. Mellows, and Lieut. Martin Hunnybun. . . .
