Sgt. G.D. Connolly Weds St. John’s Bride Tuesday

Headquarters, Canadian Troops
C.A.P.O. No. 1, St. John's Nfld.
13th Feb., 1945.

The wedding took place at 8 o'clock last evening at Little Dale Church, Waterford Bridge Road, of Francis, daughter of Mrs. Mary Hamlyn and the late James Hamlyn, Topsail Road, to S-Sgt. Gerard David Connolly, R.C.A.P.C., son of Mr. and Mrs. John Connolly, Lindsay, Ontario.

The bride was dressed in white satin, princess style, with long pointed sleeves and full length veil and train. The bridal veil was held in place with a crown and she carried a bouquet of red roses and ferns.

The bride was given in marriage by Major General H.N. Ganong, C.B.E., V.D., who accompanied by the bride, inspected the Guard of Honor, which was under the command of Warrant Officer A.P. Greene of Canadian Headquarters. The ceremony was conducted by Rt. Rev. Mgr. J.J. Rawlins, and immediately following the ceremony, Miss Catherine Smyth of this city, sang "Ave Maria". Leaving the church, the bridal party passed under an archway of crossed swords, formed by the Guard of Honour, and proceeded to the Sergeants' Mess, Canadian Headquarters, where the reception was held.

The bridesmaids, Miss Margaret Newgent and Miss Daisy Gough were dressed one in pink and the other in lemon and carried red and yellow tulips with ferns.

The bride and groom left for Avondale on their honeymoon, the bride wearing a Marina blue suit. Their many friends wish them every happiness.
