A wedding of district interest was solemnized by Rev. J.A. Ballard in St. Andrew's Anglican Church, Grimsby, on Saturday afternoon, when Pte. Audrey Alberta Robertson, C.W.A.C., daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Robertson, Grimsby, became the bride of Harold K. Atkinson, D.C.M., and bar, M.M., veteran of the present war, and eldest son of Mrs. Atkinson and the late Mr. George Atkinson, 324 Wellington Street North, Hamilton. Given in marriage by her father, the bride was gowned in white taffeta with veil and sweetheart head dress. She carried Better Time roses. Mrs. L.J Hayes, of Hamilton, sister of the bride, was matron of honour, wearing a pink net gown with quilted satin jacket, and veil. She carried pink roses. The bridesmaid, another sister, Pte. Ella Robertson, C.W.A.C., was similarly gowned in blue. The bride's youngest sister, Miss Sheila Robertson, was flower girl, dressed in mauve and yellow and carrying spring flowers. Mr. Martin Sawchuk, of Hamilton, was best man. Ushering were Sea Cadets George and Ronald Robertson. A reception for 100 guests was held at the home of the bride's parents. The couple left on a short honeymoon trip to Niagara Falls and Buffalo. The groom returned from overseas two months ago after three and one-half years' service. A former C.Q.M.S. of "D" Company, Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders (P.L.), he enlisted shortly after war broke out. He served as R.Q.M.S. with the Hastings and Prince Edward Regiment overseas and was in action in Africa and Sicily, being wounded at Tobruk. He was awarded the D.C.M. "for bravery in action at Long Stop Hill, North Africa". The bar to the D.C.M. was also awarded for action in Africa. Since being discharged from active service, owing to his wounds, he is a R.S.M. attached to Canadian Army Reserve units.
