Cameron’s sister to wed Suffolk general’s son

Jem Fawcus and Clare Cameron to marry 10 days before election

THE son of a retired Suffolk senior army officer is to marry Conservative leader David Cameron’s younger sister 10 days before the General Election.

Jeremy Fawcus - called by his friends Jem - has known Clare Cameron for 20 years, but they only began dating last year before announcing their engagement in October.

Mr Fawcus is the son of Major-General Graham Fawcus and his wife Diana, of Flowton Hall near Ipswich, where they have lived for 19 years.

Major-General Fawcus, who served in the Royal Engineers, is a former Chief of Staff at Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers Europe.

Mr Cameron is expected to take a break from the hectic schedule of canvassing and electioneering to attend the wedding. Conservative Central Office said it would be a private ceremony and would not reveal the location.
