Publishers Abstract; Reginald Bonham Carter, a young English engineer, spent about eight years in Spain, and played a significant part in the British and Spanish community in Linares, a lead mining town in Ja?n Province, where he mainly lived and worked. He was well liked by all. However, on the 27th May 1906, he was killed in an underground accident at a lead mine he part owned. He is buried in the English cemetery at Linares, Andalucia, Spain

The Bonham Carter family knew Reginald as 'Reggie', but to the Spanish he was affectionately known as ?Don Regino?. Coming from an influential family, his story is an interesting one.

During his time in Linares, Reginald was a prolific letter writer, many of which have survived. The authors have examined this legacy, and have become very involved with the story of the British contribution to the history of Linares. Rob and Margaret Vernon have a knowledge of British and foreign mining history, and live near Tewkesbury, England
