Mum wore Joan's wedding dress. Dad appeared home on short leave and they got married very quickly (at the end of WWII) on 7 March 1945. They had to borrow dried eggs from the neighbours to make part of the wedding meal; they got someone else's wedding cake from the local baker; and the lady across the road, who made Mum's going away outfit (strawberry tweed), managed to make a pair of trousers for her wee boy out of the same fabric, by dint of giving Mum the shortest skirt ever seen in Falkirk.
