Rushden Echo, 31st May 1918
The marriage of Lieutenant Robert F. Knight, Royal West Kent Regiment, eldest son of Mr. Fred Knight, J.P., and Mrs. Knight, the Old Rectory, Rushden, to Miss Augustine Fairweather, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Fairweather, of Kinnaird, Perthshire, took place on Saturday last in Edinburgh. Mr. Arthur F. Knight, brother of the bridegroom, was present at the ceremony.
The function was a very quiet one. The bridegroom, who is a fine all-round sportsman, is a well-known cricketer, having played for the Northamptonshire County Cricket Club. He was the originator of the Belgian Relief Fund at Rushden, and efficiently carried out the secretarial duties during the first part of its existence. He was also one of the prime movers in the formation of the Rushden Volunteer Training Corps, and was one of the first officers. For six months he served with his regiment in France.
