Hi,

I'm having a little trouble transcribing page 5 of Arthur Gordon Anderson's Red Cross Wounded or Missing Enquiry Bureau Files.

It starts:

Died of Wounds 21 Oct 1917
He died from a shell wound 2 days

and then I start getting fuzzy.
With thanks!!


The file can be found at: http://www.awm.gov.au/collection/records/1drl0428/2/8/5/1drl...

I think I deciphered some of it:

He died from a shell wound 2 days after he was hit (about Oct. 23rd) between ///// House and Passchendaele Ridge. His brother Charles (there is another "C. Anderson" in the 5th Pioneers and I think he //// but not in the cook house) who is a man of about 27 in C. Coy. 5th Pioneers in /// cook house, will have all the details. He served with the /// reinforcement and belonged to C. Coy. A very tall man. We called him "Long-un"

A. G. Campbell Informant: Lt. Col. R. W/////, 3///
London 5th Pioneers, A. I. F. L. XIV
19.4.18 Bar///rd
