    12. [S2822] The Cumberland Argus and Fruitgrowers Advocate (Parramatta, NSW : 1888 - 1950) (, Saturday 27 April 1918.
      On Saturday afternoon Liverpool Baptist Church
      was crowded on the occasion of the marriage of ex
      Sergeant Fred Ball, of Liverpool (second eldest
      son of Private James and Mrs. Ball) to Nellie
      Irene (youngest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Allan
      Whiteford, of Kogarah). The Rev. J.H. Bain, of
      Mosman,officiated, and during the ceremony Mr.
      J. Binnie, of Sydney, sang 'Because,' Miss Eileen
      Wearne presiding at the organ. The bride, who
      entered the church, on the arm of her grandfather,
      Mr. Mitchell, also of Sydney, wore a becoming
      bridal gown of ivory crepe de chine and georgette
      embossed in silver, with veil, coronet of orange
      blossoms and magnificent bouquet. Mr. Mitchell
      was supported by Corporal George Harrison, and
      Private Lal Hanna as groomsmen. The chief
      bridesmaids were Miss Emmie Ball (sister of the
      bridegroom) and Mrs. Lucy Fox (the bride's sister),
      both wearing pale pink silk voile and carrying bou
      quets of pink and white chrysanthemums. The
      wedding party motored to the school hall, where
      a reception and wedding breakfast were held. Over
      100 guests were entertained, ex Corporal Ferguson,
      a returned Anzac, presiding, and the usual toasts
      were honored, including 'the boys at the front,'
      by Sergeant McDonald. The happy couple left for
      Katoomba later, the bride travelling in a dress of
      cream gabardine, black velvet hat, fox furs. Over
      a hundred valuable serviceable presents were
      received by the young couple, whose future resi
      dence will be at Liverpool.
