His mother was living at Manly at the time of his embarkation.  She had a long association with the Neutral Bay/Cremorne area through her family home, Redlands, Military Road, Neutral Bay, owned by the Phillips family up until the late 1890s.  During and after the war years she stayed at a number of Sydney addresses including two in Cremorne.  Her brother, Oswald John Phillips, lived at 3 Cyprian Street, Mosman which may be the reason Arthur Gerard Fox's name appears on the Mosman War Memorial.
