Lord Peter Carrington's death announced today at 99 no less.
As well as being a Tory politician (boo) and if I remember correctly defence secretary, Carrington has an important place in WWFC history in that he negotiated sale of the land that became Loakes Park that was then gifted onto club by Frank Adams.
I am sure I read somewhere that the sale was at substantially below market rate and hence that Carrington is due some of the credit (leaving aside his tory past) alongside Adams. Cant find anything now, so possible I may have got that wrong. Anybody confirm?
