I believe these are the girls Mum worked with at the time of her marriage.

I have been trying to decide if there is a barrage balloon in the sky behind Mum.

And this is the telegram the girls sent the happy couple.

This is a colorized photo of Mum around the same time.

And a photo taken the week of the wedding.

Dad then spent three years in the Army. Fortunately, he never left England. He drove a radar lorry. When the War ended he was offered officer training if he stayed on (he had made the rank of staff sergeant). But he preferred to be “demobbed.”

Tomorrow is Mum’s birthday.
