The allied servicemen who spent time in wartime Britain were far from home and often lonely so it is hardly surprising that many found their true loves on these shores. Marriages were often arranged hastily before the grooms were posted far away.
Once peace had been established the problem arose on how to transport the brides to their new homelands. The wait for transportation could be lengthy and frustrating, but eventually the British brides were reunited with their husbands.
This website offers an index to brides who left Britain and travelled to United States, New Zealand, Australia and Canada. New names are being added to the index regularly so if you don’t find “your” missing person first time round remember to keep going back.
