Former Federal Prime Minister of the old Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Sir Roy Welensky?
Former Federal Prime Minister of the old Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Sir Roy Welensky will marry Miss Valeria Scott on Tuesday next, in a private ceremony at his home in Salisbury, and on Saturday will have a reception for 200 guests. Miss Scott, the future Lady Welensky is being shown around in the meantime, and today Sir roy took her to his smallholding farm of some 60 acres some miles from Salisbury, overlooking some of the nicest country, where he grows maize, vegetables, peaches and other fruit in abundance......... He spends most of his time as a market gardener-farmer, bashing a land rover over the farm.....
In these pictures it shows a brief length of him meeting Miss Scott at the Salisbury airport......
Then on to the arrival at the farm, being shown over the farm, the house, meeting the Africans on the farm, etc, taking tea on the veranda... Also includes a look round the African compound, looking into one of the houses, meeting Africans etc, in the fruit orchards, oranges, peach blossom etc.. maize being harvested.....
The wedding is to be performed by a District Commissioner, who was appointed, with the necessary authority, before Rhodesia's U.D.I.so that there should be no problems with legality of the Marriage, or of Miss Scotts future status as Lady Welensky.... Sir Roy has probably made extensive investigations into this.
The wedding will be conducted by a District Commissioner.
