Wedding Telegrams, 1938

Last week I posted a blog on a wartime New Year telegram  my father sent to my mother on December 31st 1940.  I had some lovely comments, including one expressing surprise at the striking pictorial design - very patriotic in style with the royal coat of arms and floral emblems from the four countries of the United Kingdom.

So I thought, as a follow up,  I would share two other such telegrams sent with congratulations on my parent's marriage on 18th April 1938 at St. Chad's Church, Poulton-le-Fylde, Lancashire.
