Unsure if this is our man in question??
Other reasons for doing another line of the many searchers I've been bog-down with, and out of the blue to some extent, was an accident waiting to happen.
Among the many press cuttings another joins the file. The article in question resorts to the come back of those heavy involved with the Boer War and some notable names of immense wealth of the Southampton circle, were awarded the Freedom of Southampton. Among the names is "Carter" (no first name quoted) but his background and bravery fits his description to a tee.
Has any one else come across anything similar to what I've recently discovered at Southampton Reference Library??
Carter is much lower down in the report whilst Perkins gets all the glory. Considering the Perkins family were the main co-founders of the Southampton Echo, little wonder why they are masters of the universe and stand high on the league table absorbing all the rapacious welcoming from the citizen of Southampton. Not knocking Julian Perkins as years later (1923 precise) his Uncle Col. Sir Edwin Perkins the M.P., for Southampton was appointed to serve on the Southampton Committee.
