CAROL WILL MARRY IN HONG KONG
BLONDE 17-year-old Carol Lawson flies to Hong Kong tomorrow (Saturday) to marry her soldier fiance, 21-year-old James Gascoigne.
And, said Carol, daughter of Mr and Mrs Albert Lawson, 21 Shakespeare Street, Gainsborough, yesterday, “It will give me an opportunity to see the world.”
An assistant in a local chemist’s shop for the past two years, Carol has been busy packing her trousseau this week and today she boards the train which will take her to London for her flight tomorrow.
Carol and James met while he was serving at the REME Camp on Corringham Road, Gainsborough. They became engaged last September.
