      July 2007: Gillian Green, a grandaughter of Charles Edward Minter, has been in touch by email. She provied the following obituary of her grandfather, which was originally published in Isle of Wight County Press in January 1998:-
      Minter, Charles Edward
      Charles was educated at Newport Board School, and left at the age of 14. He worked as a fireman during WW11; before and after the war he worked with Uffa Fox at Cowes as a boatbuilder. He was also one of a group responsible for building airborne lifeboats, which were reputed to have saved as many as 40,000 lives during the war years. The loss of a leg forced Charles to leave the boat-building industry and in 1948 he opened C. E. Minters Greengrocery business at 17 Carisbrooke Road, Newport, until he moved to Ryde in 1962. He then worked as a maintenance man at Southern Vectis and also for Pauls Coach Tours until his retirement in 1975. Much of his retirement was spent visiting his daughter who lives in Canada, and travelling the World. In 1962 he became a member of The Loyal Order of the Moose in which he held office as Governor several times. Charles was a very keen cyclist giving up cycling at the age of 86. He was former record holder of The Round - The - Island Cycle Race. Charles was a wonderful storyteller. Charles' funeral service was conducted by his good friend The Reverend Ian Card at the Church of the Holy Cross Binstead. It included a programme of hymns and address Charles chose more than ten years before his death.
