The Luton News , 28th June 1917
Pte Arthur Carter

Pte Arthur Carter, 203264, 1/4th Battalion York & Lancaster Regiment, was reported missing following a raid on June 11th, 1917, according to a letter writer at the Front. Officially his death is recorded as having happened on June 12th.

"I am very much afraid he is killed," said the writer, "as under the circumstances it is very unlikely he was taken prisoner. It was impossible to bring back our dead owing to the number of wounded."

Pte Carter, who was aged 28 and single, had been in the Army for two years and had spent 10 months is France. He was a former employee of T. Balmforth & Co Ltd and had lived at 37 Tavistock Street, Luton, the home of parents George and Eliza Carter.
