|MR. F. H. CARTER
Mr. F. H. CARTER, a representative for Lewisham on the London County Council, died somewhat suddenly yesterday afternoon at his house at Sydenham. He had been much interested in the War Loan campaign, and had spent the morning assisting with the Lewisham tank, which is stationed at Catford. He was on the deputation which received Sir Edward Coates when he invested Â£63,000. Mr. Carter drove home in the afternoon in a motor-car, accompanied by the Mayor of Lewisham, and then seemed in good health, but later he was taken ill and died. During his membership of the L.C.C., Mr. Carter had served as chairman of the Fire Brigade. He was formerly Unionist candidate for the Gorton division of Lancashire, and was a member of a Mincing-lane firm, and his expert advice had been sought during the recentt work of the Ministry of Food. His second son, Captain Stanley Carter, of the Royal Engineers, was recently awarded the M.C. Two other sons are in the Army.
