Army and navy united.

ARMY bride Jacqueline O'Rourke will wed her Navy fiance on board ship in a Valentine's Day ceremony after their original plans were ruined by Saddam Hussein.

Jacqueline, 28, and Petty Officer John Walker, 27, were set to marry in December but had to call it off when the Iraq crisis erupted. Now the couple, both serving in Bosnia, will tie the knot on a Navy auxiliary vessel in Split, Croatia, with the captain officiating.

Staff Sergeant Jacqueline said: "Everyone has been wonderful. The captain's wife had connections at a local school and they will be bringing a choir and dancers."

She has designed a dress with a military theme - cream with gold braid. The newlyweds cannot take leave but, as keen scuba divers, have been given places on an Army adventure training course on the nearby island of Brac.
