Marek Boym asked:
> When did they marry?

Dear Marek,
On 3 February 1945 in Aachen, Germany.

> There are recordings from 1946.

The January 1946 Vic Lewis sides (released years later) were private, not commercial, recordings so don't qualify.

>  - she was born before 1920...

She was born on 20 March 1920, after John Chilton's cutoff date.
I have subsequently discovered that her stage name during WWII was Marian Page. 
So John Chilton was right.

> Merry Christmas and Happy New Year (rhymes with beer, so I'm going to pur myself one).

And our sincere seasonal greetings to you.
We will be going to the Australian Jazz Convention (26-31 December) in Forbes NSW, so there will be plenty of jazz playing, cheers and beers for the whole week. I am a Trustee of the AJC.
Very kind regards,
