Killed in Action
Seaman Arthur Bruton, son of Mr. A. Bruton, butcher, 262, High St., Smethwick, was killed in action on the Tipperary in the North Sea Battle, May 31st. He was 23 years of age. He had been home on leave not long before - once as the result of being in action. He had attained considerable proficiency as a black and white artist, having won a scholarship in London. Some remarkably clever drawings were sent home by him a short time ago. The deceased was greatly respected, and there is much sympathy with his friends in their bereavement.
