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.
