Sailor Home: They'd only been married four days, and had been separated for 10 long months that is why it was any porthole in a storm of emotion which boiled up when the interrupted honeymooners caught sight of each other again. The scene happened on destroyer H.M.S. Decoy, home at Deyonport after 10 months service in the Mediterranean which brought home bridegroom M.E.I. Ken Stapleton, 21 who had to leave England and home and Beauty so soon. His pretty slender bride Marjorie, 21 rushed to find him soon as the warship docked, but in the crowd of relatives that swarmed on board, couldn't get through the gangway soon enough, so she just wriggled through the open porthole right in-to Ken's arms. Ken and Marjorie live at Bricham, Devon. He is a National Serviceman, and she a shop assistant. January 1957
