Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Daughter of Edward TWEDDELL and Louisa nee GARDINER
Of Ponth Rd, Murrumbeena, Victoria

Married Cecil Travers (Banjo) PATTERSON 24 April 1933
Cecil passed away 14 August 1938

Even the rigid discipline of a military hospital cannot stifle romance, Mr. Cecil Travers Paterson, son of the late Mr. Magnus Paterson of Sale, and Mrs Paterson, of Melbourne, who has long been a cot-case at the Repatriation Hospital, Caulfield, and Miss Phyllis Tweddell, a nursing sister attached to the staff, were married quietly on Monday last. To hundreds of casual friends and acquaintances, this bedridden soldier is known as "Banjo Paterson." Conveyed to the course in a portable cut, he rarely misses a big race meeting. To the regular patrons of Flemington and Caulfield he is a familiar figure. His cheery personality has made him a general favorite. For the soldier patients at Caulfield Sister Tweddell always had a smile and a kindly word. To the daily round of common task she brought a cheeriness that often made dull days more sunshiny for the war cases in her care. Mr. and Mrs. Paterson are living in Mentone.
