Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Anderson, of Ardrossan, have been notified by the military authorities that their son, Pte. Frank de W. Anderson, was killed in action in France on May 5. He enlisted early in 1915, and left Australia in June of that year. He was attached to the 3rd Australian General Hospital and served at the base hospital on Lemnos, until the evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsula. He then obtained a transfer to the Field Ambulance, serving in France, and was acting in the capacity of stretcher-bearer at the time of his death. He was 30 years old. He received his early education at the Elliston Public School, and later at Muirden College. After having been employed for several years by Messrs.

He has left many friends at Petersburg and throughout the State. (
