The Wedding of Eaton-Clarke, 1943
(attribute tbc)

There are many very striking photographs of aircrew marrying, resplendent in their best uniforms, often surrounded by other crew members. Many of these marriages were all too short-lived, often leaving a heart-broken widow pregnant with her dead husband’s child. One such was Edith Skinner, who lost her husband Jack over the Dutch island of Texel in January 1944. Eaton-Clarke and his new wife were fortunate and had a long happy life ahead of them.
