Abstract: Dieudonné showed that there exists a normal (countably) compact uniform $ {T_1}$-space which has no topology preserving complete uniformity [4]. His example, being the space of the countable ordinals with respect to the order topology, everywhere locally has a complete uniformity. Here we show, as a corollary to Dieudonné's result and a result of Worrell [10], that there exists a normal (countably) compact first countable involutorily homogeneous uniform $ {T_1}$-space locally homeomorphic with itself which has no topology preserving complete uniformity.
