Sap. J.H. Baxter, whose death was announced last week was the elder son of Mr. and Mrs. T.T. Baxter, of Watson Avenue, Toorak. He left Sydney last January with reinforcements to the engineers, and died from wounds received in France on August 11. He was in his 22nd year, and his sterling qualities earned for him the friendship of all who knew him.
