Photo: ROSEMARY McLENNAN By ROSEMARY McLENNAN Marry young before you get into bad habits that will annoy your spouse is the recipe for happiness, according to Upper Hutt man John Jamieson. He and wife Mae have just cel- ebrated 60 years of marriage. They still love each other and regularly say so, Mrs Jamieson says. As a young married couple they never had much'' but living expenses were not high. Neighbours helped each other and Mr Jamieson grew a veg- etable garden. He also worked at the TAB on Saturdays to earn the family extra cash. His wife sewed, knitted, cooked and baked. Mr Jamieson became exten- sively involved in community groups. In Masterton the number of committees he was on reached 13 so he bought his wife their first television set. Mr Jamieson was born in Glasgow; Mrs Jamieson, nee Logan, in Oamaru. Mr Jamieson's father had belonged to the Gordon Highlanders, a Scottish highland soldiers regiment, and moved to Malaya with his family to work in the civil service. World War II broke out when they were there and soon after, when Mr Jamie- son was 10, he was sent to New Zealand to attend Waitaki Boys' High School at Oamaru. His parents and sister were to holiday in New Zealand. But his father decided to stay on and sent his mother and sister ahead to New Zealand. Mr Jamieson senior was captured by the Japanese in Sumatra, Indonesia, and died on a prisoner of war ship on the way to Japan. When the war ended Mrs Jamieson was offered passage back to Britain but because her children wanted to stay in New Zealand she also settled in Oamaru. Which is how her son John met his future wife Mae at a Friday night dance class. They went together for five years before marrying on May 10, 1952, at St Paul's Presbyterian Church in Oamaru. Mr Jamieson had begun as a junior clerk with the Department of Labour and his work took the couple around New Zealand. Dur- ing their years in Invercargill the Manapouri power station project was going on and Mr Jamieson was impressed by the construc- tion and organisational skills of contractors from the United States. He worked in employment and immigration in Wellington then became a factory inspector in Masterton. They shifted to Upper Hutt in 1975 and moved into their present house, just around the corner from Heretaunga Col- lege, a year later. Mr Jamieson had left school at 15 and believed a good education was the key to their sons getting ahead. The couple were impressed with the standard of schooling they found in Upper Hutt, especially when compared to where they had lived before. Mrs Jamieson had worked in the corsetry section of a depart- ment store before she married. After she moved to Upper Hutt she worked in the same depart- ment of James Smiths in Welling- ton for a time. That was followed by work at the Royal New Zealand Police College in Porirua until her hus- band retired from the head office of the Labour Department. Retirement has revolved around their church (St Margaret's Silverstream) and family of sons Neil (Trentham), Iain (Khandallah) and Ross (Hataitai) and five grandchildren. And there have been many over- seas trips, especially as rugby tour supporters. The couple celebrated their dia- mond anniversary with lunch at Eastbourne followed by a family dinner at a Petone restaurant. They received many congratu- latory messages, including one from the Queen.
