   Marriage Notes:

2nd cousins

---------------------

"On Friday afternoon at the Loco workshops a presentation was made to Mr. T. Coulston, a member of the Loco staff at Parkes, by his fellow workmen. The gift, which took the form of a handsome marble eight-day clock, was intended to mark the occasion of Mr. Coulston's marriage with Miss Alice G. Cooper, second daughter of Mr. William Cooper, of Parkes, and as an indication of the esteem in which "Tom'' was held by his fellow workmen at Loco. Mr. Coulston, who has four years active service with the A.I.F. to his credit, and gained his commission as lieutenant on the field, is very popular in the sporting world of Parkes, and well-known in football circles, in which he is regarded as the finest wing three-quarter in the district. The presentation was made on behalf of the donors by Inspector Rochaix, who spoke in warmly eulogistic terms of the guest's qualities as a workman. His remarks were supported by Mr. O'Shea on behalf of the mechanics and Mr. Mower on behalf of the running staff, the speakers wishing Mr. and Mrs. Coulston a long, happy, and prosperous married life. Mr. Coulston feelingly acknowledged the gift and the accompanying expressions of esteem and goodwill." 7
