Editor of the Pictou Advocate -
Dear Sir: I have much pleasure in sending you a short account of the wedding at All Saints, Ennismore Gardens, Knightsbridge, which I promised you last week and which took place July 1. The contracting parties were Lieut.-Col. Charles Dickson, D.S.O., and Miss Sarah Jane Robley R.R.C., daughter of the late Thomas Robley, Esq., both of Pictou. The ceremony was performed by the Director of the Canadian Chaplain Services, Colonel J. Almond C.M.G., C.B.E. Miss Robley, who wore a tailored gown, of navy blue gaberdine, with a small hat of the same shade, trimmed with tiny white wings, looked very handsome. She was given away by Major-general J.L. Foster, C.B., Director General of the Canadian Medical Services. Among those present were Brig.-General H.S. Birkett, C.B., Lady Perley, wife of the High Commissioner for Canada, Col. H.A. Chisholm Macdonald, R.R.C., Mr. and Mrs. Timpson and members of the Nursing Service.
The extroardinary thing about the function was the number of one time Pictou Academy students to be seen in the congregation - beginning with General Foster.
With the organ rolling out the Mendelssohn Wedding March behind them, and followed by the good wishes of their friends, Colonel and Mrs. Dickson entered a waiting motor car and amid a shower of white roses, were wisked off to join the Plymouth Express.
The honey moon is to be spent in that old English town of sacred memory for the peoples of the new world, Plymouth.>
On their return to town, Col. and Mrs. Dickson will be at home at 6, Berners Street' Mansions, Berners Street, W.C.
Sarah Jane Robley was a nursing sister during WWII, and was decorated by King George VI.
