Clark - Ette

The Marriage took place on Tuesday at St Mary’s Church of Second-Lieut. Charles Harold Clark, R.F.A., eldest son of Mr and Mrs Chas. Clark, of Wellingtonia, Irchester-road, and Miss Kathleen Ette, second daughter of Mr and Mrs Chas. Ette, Newton-road. The Rector (Rev P E Robson) officiated. The bride, who was given away by her father, was attended by her sister, Miss Lilian Ette. Second-Lieut. Tom Clark, M.G.C. (brother of the bridegroom), acted as beat man. Both bride and bridegroom are well known in the town. The bridegroom joined the Colours early in the war and saw much stiff fighting, taking part in many noted engagements. The bride is the secretary of the Town Tennis Club, and is a well known hockey player and motor cyclist. Many beautiful presents were received.

Note: Charles and Kathleen lived at 'Herradura' next door to 'Wellingtonia' in Irchester Road.

Two Pals in Khaki
An interesting photograph taken whilst on leave in Rushden of Sergt. W. D. Tull, of the 17th Middlesex (Footballers'€ Battalion), and Sergt. Gunnery Instructor C. H. V. Clark, of the R.F.A., eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. C. Clark, of "Wellingtonia,"€ Irchester-road, Rushden.

Both are well-known in Rushden, Sergt. Tull being Northampton's right half-back.

Sergt. Clark'€s younger brother, Gunner Tom Clark, has been at the front for some time past with the Motor Machine Gun Section. He took part in the battle of Hill 60, and at that time an interesting account of the engagement from the pen of Gunner Clark was published exclusively in our columns.
