William and Christina get married and Mark gives her away, looking very smart in his uniform. Lots of photos are taken, much to William's annoyance at being a model for the day! We then see them at a rented cottage, William in Flying Corps uniform and sporting a small moustache. They have been married 2 years and 8 months, but only spent a couple of months together. Just the night before Christina finally arranged the wedding photos in an album. She has received a telegram that Mark is 'missing in action, presumed dead'. At the end of his leave, William returns to duty and Christina returns to the hotel. Soon afterwards she receives a telegram ' Regret to inform that Captain William Russell...' He has died.
