From memoirs of Ted Harris

[It was around about this time that a romance began to flourish in the camp. That of Ruby and an Englishman, Chris (Jock) Scott. Jock was billeted in the Science quarters and became a frequent visitor. Briefly, Ruby’s marriage to Nobby floundered during the war years and Ruby and Chris were ultimately married at Wesley Church, Melbourne on their repatriation to Australia. From this marriage were two sons, Dennis and Chris.]
