In terms of the war November 1918 was a very significant month, with the Armistice being signed between the Allies and Germany at Compiegne in France.
This must be one of the last postcards that Will sent to Ethel before heading for home to take up his leave.
Will writes on the back of the postcard as it being ...
"Where the English entered just before the Armistice was signed."
After 4 years of war, 3 overseas postings, 6 months in hospital and lots of letters and postcards Will and Ethel finally tied the knot, in Doncaster, on 28 November 1918.
They were married at Christ Church, the very same church where our story started, where Tom Sidney, Will's father, had been encouraged to take on the role of Verger, by his brother-in-law, William Preston. The Marriage Certificate still shows him holding this position at the time of the wedding.Details of the wedding were announced in the local paper, though Will is referred to as William Burton Sidney, rather that William Preston Sidney.
