MC, of the York and Lancaster Regiment, son of Mr and Mrs Sam
Cartwright, of Gwespyr, Otley Road, Harrogate, was solemnised at
Wesley Chapel on Monday. The bridegroom received his commission in
1914, was at Gallipoli, and was wounded at Suvla Bay. He went to
France in 1916 and was wounded at Thiepval. He was awarded the

[Details of service]
The bride, who was given away by her father, looked
very sweet in a dress of ivory satin trimmed with real French lace,
sent over from France by the bridegroom. She had on a veil of
Brussels lace and carried a lovely bouquet of white carnations and
lilies of the valley.
Miss Alice Cartwright, sister of the bridegroom, was
the bridesmaid, and she was daintily dressed in white net over silk
and had a small veil of Brussels net with silver trimmings. She
carried a beautiful spray of parma violets.
The bride was also attended by two pages, Dennis
Morritt Ogden and Lorna Roberts Ogden, nephew and niece of the
bride, who were prettily dressed in white charmeuse satin. The
little boy carried a cushion.
Captain T D Pratt, of the Duke of Wellington
Regiment, acted as best man.
The happy couple left later for Southport, where the honeymoon
will be spent. They were the recipients of many congratulations.
