Quiet Khaki Wedding

The wedding was solemnized a week [ago] at St. John’s Church, Wakefield, of Capt. Hammond Harvey Gardner, 18th Canadians, second son of Mr. Harry Gardner of Elm Hurt, Frizinghall, and Miss Lillian Hawksworth, youngest daughter of the late Mr. Henry Hawksworth of Wakefield.

The wedding was very quiet owing to the recent death of the bridegroom’s brother, Lieut. Willie Gardner.

Capt. Gardner was immediately after the ceremony obliged to return to his military duties in Staffordshire where he is for the present stationed.
