John,

Thank you for posting this. It just so happens that it is my parents' 50th wedding anniversary today and because of your posting I was able to find the write up of their marriage in 1963 in The Weekly. Before all I had was a clipping from a paper that I suspected was from the Port Credit Weekly but could not confirm. Now I have the full pages (26 Sep 1963, p 21-22) that I can correctly cite as a source.
