A Tribute to Colonel Anderson 

6 December 1949 The Tumut and Adelong Times

(To the Editor)

SIR, - I read in your paper recently about Colonel Anderson, V.C. M.C.   

I was a member of the 19th Battalion and served under Colonel Anderson and was with him as a p.o.w. on the Burma Railway.

He was a great soldier and leader both in action and later as an administrator in the p.o.w. camps.

On many occasions he took a hashing from the Japs in order to save one of his own from trouble.   

Yours faithfully, 

NX56104 Ex-Sergt. L. R. Sheather Tumut,
