From the album: Bundaberg, QLD, 1945

My paternal grandparent's wedding picture, taken at an Anglican church in Bundaberg, Queensland.

The groom, Vernon Richard Atkinson, was 30 years old. He had enlisted in Maryborough on 3 November 1939, aged 25, and served - amongst other postings - in Tobruk. He was discharged in 1944.

The bride, Jessie Evelyn Spencer, was 22 years old.

Thank you. I love how my grandfather is holding a pair of white gloves. Perhaps they were only for show, as I can't imagine him ever wearing a pair.
