"On the outbreak if war, A.B. Cuthbert Walton, of the Naval Reserve, at once joined his ship. Since then he has been on active service and latterly on board H.M.S. Swiftsure in eastern waters. A few days ago the news arrived that he was on his way home, followed on Monday by the sad intimation that he had died of dysentery at Malta. A.B. Walton did great credit to his naval training and, being of a genial disposition, will be greatly missed by many friends. The sincere sympathy of all who knew him will be given to his parents, Mr and Mrs David Walton, of the “Oxford Arms” Inn." Bicester Herald 17/12/1915
