Abstract: By use of the theory of characters and the Pontryagin-van Kampen theorem, it is shown that if $ E$ is a locally compact vector space over a discrete division ring $ K$ of characteristic zero and if $ {\dim _K}E < {2^\mathfrak{m}}$, where $ \mathfrak{m}$ is the cardinality of $ K$, then $ E$ is metrizable.
