It has been impossible to trace this person. A White family did live at the Lodge in Arkell Avenue from about 1916. However Francis

Henry White, the householder, was a solicitor who died in 1946 and his only son was a sea captain, who left Carterton in the 1960s. Despite widespread searches it has proved impossible to confirm C White as having any local family. Therefore the most likely explanation is that like John Collard, Arthur Gibson and P. A. Harris, he was an itinerant agricultural labourer who enlisted whilst in working locally.
