Canadian child actor, the brother of Peggy Cartwright and son of Mrs. Cartwright.|
By August 1943, Squadron Leader L. R. C. Cartwright had been the "censorship adviser to the R.A.F. India command" for the previous year, having come there "from a censorship post in the Air Ministry, London." Tragedy came late in that month, when 32-year old Sqdn. Ldr. Cartwright was among 10 people "killed in the crash of an R.A.F. transport plane at Allahabad [on the 27th] . . ." He is buried at the Delhi War Cemetery in New Delhi, India.
His headstone and at least one news article on his demise give his age as 33, but earlier records such as the 1911 Canada Census confirm his age was, in fact, 32.
