Description

Collection relating to the service of 1063 Corporal Norman Ross Anderson, 5 Battalion, France, 1917. Collection includes extracts of letters written from France by Anderson to his mother. Extracts made 1927 by T. H. Heyes (probably Tasman Hudson Heyes) the Australian Representative at the British Historical Section Committee of Imperial Defence. Heyes notes in a letter to the Director, Australian War Memorial, 25 August 1927 on file AWM93 0012/0011/0238 "The extracts are not particularly important, but I have given them as they throw a little light on the spirit of comradeship which existed among the members and units of the A.I.F."
