wedding picture of my grandfather and grandmother (who called herself Joan) in St John's Cathedral. I wonder if anyone can tell me more about the other people apart from the the Rev.H/Copley Moyle, the Cathedral Chaplain. A wedding report in the China Mail, says the bride was given away by a Mr A.G. Hewlett and attended by Misses M.A.Wilson plus E. Williams (?) as bridesmaids. Miss E.A.Girling was matron of honour and Mr A.J.Pilgrim, best man. The report also says Ken Staple worked for Pilgrim and Son, yet his funeral report said he was working for Palmer and Turner from 1925. The only person I know anything of is Meg Wilson as she travelled to HK on same ship as Martha Staple and was later in Stanley. She features in quite a few photographs now in my possession.
