Colin GORDON married Jean May SHARP on 15 October 1941, at the home of the bride in Awamarino, King Country, NZ. According to a valued source (a witness at the wedding), the wedding ring was dropped, and my valued source remembers Colin and Oswald scrabbling around on their hands and knees on the floor, looking for this ring. You won't find that in the following report from the newspaper!
