THE BIG DAY

Christine Collins, FACI (Middlesex)

1. Little did the maker's mother realise when she and her husband-to-be named the date for their wedding that it would become so historic: the day Britain and Germany declared war - September 3rd, 1939. This is a personal recollection by Babs of how it affected what is usually considered to be a young couple's big day; imagine what it must have been like to have been dressing for your wedding as Neville Chamberlain's now-famous speech was broadcast on the wireless.
