Hello, I am trying to find out who the groom is in a mystery wedding photo found in the Ashford, Kent area and dated November 10th 1945 on back. To me it looks like the groom is wearing the DCM ribbon which would yield only one Para candidate as Albert E. Etheridge married to Winifred in 1945 in Northampton, Northamptonshire, UK. Oddly while going off parish church lists county by county when I found this information I broke off my methodical search and started up in Northampton. An initial search yielded nothing similar in door or arch style but when I searched for demolished churches I found what is most likely a hit. It is St. Edmund Church in Northampton demolished in 1980. There is one photo only online of half the door and it has the unique iron hinges that form an inward Ccc. From searching 100's of church photos from this and other wedding church mysteries these hinges are quite unique to each church. If you can find another match I'd love to see it. Now the main problem that set my research back to square one was information given to me by a couple of the Parachute Regiment websites and their historians. They told me it is impossible that it could be Albert since he would have been older and they also provide me with a photo they have marked as Albert from a group photo in 1944. Also, his lanyard is not the same used by the 10th Battalion which Albert belonged. The historians were incredibly helpful and told me what they think is a possible unit for the groom in the photo. "The 7th, 8th and 15th used this tubular style lanyard. As the man in your photo does not have tartan patch behind his cap badge, he probably is not a member of the 15th Bn. Therefore I would suggest he was probably a member of either The 7th or 8th Bn". So any help from members or ideas on what they think or see in the photo will be greatly appreciated. If I can find the identity of this gentleman maybe the photo can get back into the hands of his family. The church match and from what I see as a DCM ribbon make this a very compelling mystery. Thank you!
