Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

Son of Robert C M Anderson, 'Tolcaine', Highfield Road, Lindfield, New South Wales


"For the last twelve months this Officer has been responsible for the ammunition supply of the corps.  For the last six months in particular this has called for infinite care and painstaking calculation, and the manner in which he has performed his most arduous duties deserves special recognition."
