‘A girl ‘bridegroom’ who married another girl at a white wedding in church was fined £25 yesterday. So was her ‘bride’. The ‘bridegroom,’ 26 year old Violet Ellen Katherine Jones and the ‘bride’ 21 year old Joan Mary Lee, of Ardgowan-road, Catford, S.E both admitted making a false statement to get a marriage certificate. Violet Jones wore man’s clothes- a fawn raincoat and trousers- in the court at Greenwich.
