The visit of Commonwealth graves in Communals Cemeteries & Churchyards in Belgium & France
ALLONVILLE Communal Cemetery (Somme France)
|Sgt Anton Alexander
Andersen 17/06/1918 aged 25
Anton enlisted in 1915 and was assigned to the 4th Field Ambulance and served with this unit at Gallipoli. He was later transferred to the 12th Field Ambulance and survived the horrors of Pozieres & Mouquet Farm in 1916. Because of his skills as a clerk, in 1917 he was assigned to Australian HQ as a Pay Clerk and rose to the rank of Sergeant. In April 1918 he transferred back to the 12th Field Ambulance and was mortally wounded by shellfire on the 17th June 1918 while he was proceeding to the front line.
The photo is of him (right stand up) with his medical section mates as they were on the troopship to England from Australia.
Standing on the left is Pte Ernie Aberle (MM), who died in 1977, seated on the left is Cpl Ken McKenzie (Belgian Croix de Guerre), who died in 1941 and right seated is Sgt Ray Davis.
For Andrew Pittaway (Fremantle - Aus.)
And Ray Davis's family, Nancie Davis Field and Marilyn Field (USA)
|Ray Davis writes in his June 17, 1918
diary entry about Andersen's death ("I cannot understand things at
times"), and he later notes that he got a cross for the grave.
Ray died in 1981.
His daughter Nancie Field transcribed and published the diaries, adding historical and personal context.
