SIR JOHN KERR MARRIED IN MOSMAN.
Seven months before Australia faced its greatest Constitutional crisis, the man responsible for it wed secretly in Mosman.
Governor-General Sir John Kerr married linguist Anne Robson at Scots Kirk Church on April 29 1975.
The 25-minute ceremony took place at 11 am before a handful of close family and friends.
Wearing a pin-striped suit, 60-year-old Sir John wed the new Lady Kerr before a reception on the lawns of Admiralty House.
Sitting Prime Minister Gough Whitlam sent a telegram to the happy couple saying he was “overjoyed at your marriage and wish you happiness now and forever.”
In November, Whitlam was forced to eat his congratulatory words when Kerr sacked him as leader of the nation.
To this day, “The Dismissal” remains one of the most shocking moments in Australia’s political history.
