I would like to thank Joan Rice’s nephew, Richard, for contacting me recently and sending in some interesting pictures of his aunt. As my regular readers will know, Joan is regarded by myself and many others, as the best Maid Marian of all time. My blog is dedicated to her memory.
In March 2009 I posted some press photos taken by Horace Ward of Joan’s wedding at Gables Lodge in Maidenhead on Monday February 16th 1953. On that day she married film salesman David Green, but we wanted to know who the gentleman was who escorted her. We thought at first, it might have been her father, but I can now reveal that in fact it was her agent, George Routledge.
So if anybody can help shed some more light on George Routledge, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
