'During the period 16th/17th September, 1918, to 11th November, 1918, S.Q.M.S. ANDERSON has been in charge of the clerical staff of the A.D.M.S. office. His keeness, hard work and painstaking care were largely instrumental in the smooth working of the office during the period in which the work was peculiarly difficult owing to many almost indespensible personnel being returned to Australia.'
