The death is announced by cable message of Lieutenant Arthur [Henry] Wrixon, of the Suffolk Regiment, killed in action in France. Lieutenant Wrixon was the eldest son of the late Sir Henry Wrixon, formerly president of the Victorian Legislative Council. He spent much of his time in Melbourne and took great interest in theatrical work, being a member of the Repertory Theatre. He was in England when war was declared and was one of the early volunteers for Kitchener's Army. A younger brother, Lieutenant J. M. Wrixon has been at the front for some months.
