In the midst of the British withdrawal from Malta...a story of romance. This week, as?
In the midst of the British withdrawal from Malta...a story of romance. This week, as the withdrawal deadline ran out, British sailor Keith Welch succeeded in cutting through official red tape to marry his Maltese sweetheart Henrietta Mallia. The couple met at a dance only 24 days earlier, as the dispute between their two countries approached its climax.
Coverage from Visnews cameramen Pino di Giambattista shows Keith and Henriette being welcomed aboard the bridegroom's ship, H.M.S. Euryalus, for a wedding party yesterday (Friday, January 14th). The couple had been married quietly the previous evening...and the eleventh hour talks between Britain and Malta gave the couple a few more hours together. They plan to live in England.
