It was in 1939 that the couple was first introduced by one of Stanley's friends. Three years later they got married at St Augustine's Church in Ipswich in April 1942.
Peggy said: "I have lovely memories of our wedding. It was during wartime so we didn't have much food. I remember I had six real flowers in my bouquet and the rest were made of paper."
