  • Description

    Visnews went Jan 19 to a tiny church near once trouble-torn Famagusta for the wedding of 20 year old British airman John Everitt and 19 year old Maria who is a Greek-Cypriot. It was the first wedding between a British serviceman and a Cypriot since Eoka called for a truce Christmas Eve.

    The airman - from Surrey - wore civilian clothes. His bride wore a white gown. Service comrades in uniform with rifles cheered the couple after the service.

    The wedding came as British troops were preparing to end large-scale search operations and curfews in the island.
