Wartime wedding

Bill and Elma Leslie, who were married in October 1943, when Bill returned from serving in the Middle East. The service was held in Inverness and the Reception in the Caledonian Hotel.

The Leslies ran the paper shop on the High Street for many years (next to George the hairdressers). I think Mrs Leslie was the daughter of Mr George. Mr Leslie was a bit of a smoothie - think Leslie Phillips - ding dong....

Elma Leslie died 2 weeks ago at the age of 85. She lived in Inverness for several years and was very active. She was interested in this site but had no access to a PC.

Sad to hear of Elma's death. She and Bill and her parents were such a big part of Invergordon. The hairdresser's was always so busy and she always looked so immaculate.

Hi Rosalie.
Yes Elma was always elegantly dressed. I last saw her at the beginning of December. She loved to hear about all the comments on this site. I printed out some of the old photos for her.

Very sorry to her of Elma's death; they were a lovely couple - both very smart, Bill in his newsagents/fancy goods and Elma in the hairdressers.

Thank you for these beautiful words, my father always remembered them. I have his name in honor of them.
