    There was a pretty wedding in Littleham Church, Exmouth, Devon, England, on July 16, when Captain the Rev. Robert Jameson Rowell, Chaplain to the A.I.F. (of Omeo Vicarage, Gippsland, Victoria, Aust.), was married to Agatha Geraldine, elder daughter of the late Wallace H. Dobbie and Mrs Dobbie, of St. George's, Littleham Cross, and granddaughter of the late Admiral W. H. Dobbie.
    The ceremony was performed by the Rev. H. W. Millett. The bride, who wore a primrose-colored frock and lovely old Honiton lace veil, was given away by her mother, and was attended by her sister, Miss Dorothy Dobbie, and a sweet little couple, Diana Tayler and Geoffrey Metcalfe, who scattered rose leaves over the bride as she left the Church. - The best man was the Rev. W. Paton, Chaplain (Pres.) to the A.I.F. (from the New Hebrides).
    After the ceremony the guests gathered at St. George's till the happy pair started off on their honeymoon. The presents were numerous. Rev Robert James Rowell3
