Steve – yes I do have this couple – their correct date of marriage is 30/3/1916 – the date of 18/4/1918 is the date the marriage extract was transcribed.
The confusion with her surname probably comes from the fact that she was a widow.

Her maiden name was Florence WALKER – she married Ernest F.W. RAGGATT in 1905 Wales, and he died in 1912 – she then married Arthur Lloyd RAGGATT 30/3/1916 at the Parish Church, Llantwit, Neath, Glamorgan, Wales.

Cheers, Frev

Frev,

Just as you find one another pops up;

Again limited details for your special touch.

BUTLER   Guy Theodore   66   Sgt   9 LHR   A Sqn to (1 ASH) hosp Mudros (dysentry) 7-15 rtn 7-15 prom 2/Lt possibly A Sqn D Troop (from Tunbridge WIA) 17-8-15 evac to hosp Malta (dysentry) 9-15 to (Beaufort War) hosp Bristol UK (rheum) 9-15 (G) rtn 2-16 to 2 Div Cyc Co 3-16 to 1 Anzac Cyc Bn 5-16 to Aust Corps Cyc Bn 1-18 to hosp (myalgia) 3-18 rtn 6-18 F&B to NME UK farming 3-19 married Gladys in UK father Sir Richard Butler


No details on wife other then she RTA with a child

His father Sir Richard is not found by me, so who was he?

PS

sorry I now found what I wanted on his father

During the war

"In February 1912 Butler again took office under Peake as minister of mines, minister of marine, and commissioner of public works (until November 1914 when he became commissioner of crown lands). The ministry was defeated at the March 1915 election. In 1917 after the Labor Party split, Peake again formed a government with Butler as treasurer; he was also minister of railways until May 1919 and of agriculture for five months. He consolidated his reputation for sound though frugal administration, taking some notable initiatives in the building of the Outer Harbour at Adelaide, once named 'Butler's Folly', and the locking of the River Murray. He had been knighted in 1913."

Cheers

Thanks Steve - both MOSELEY and BUTLER are new to me.

Seems Lionel MOSELEY was in the UK again in Nov 1916, though there doesn't seem to be a mention of it in his records.
He married Dorothy Patience FOLGATE on the 18th November 1916 at St Matthews Church, Marylebone, London.
He then signed a Stat Dec in London on the 23rd assuming his real name for the army authorities.
Dorothy and her son Arthur later came out to Australia in 1919 on the Orsova - she remarried in 1921 to Herbert Mills FRAIL (ex AIF).  Her son served in WW2.


Guy BUTLER married Gladys Seymour KEAY in the Jan-Mar Qtr of 1917 at Chesterton, Cambridgeshire
