Biographical information

    • Edward Ander was the son of Frederick and Eliza Ander, of 6, Eastown Rd., Wanganui East, New Zealand. AWMM
    • 'Wanganui Roll Of Honour'
      Our Wanganui correspondent reports: It is with deep regret that I have to record the death (killed in action) of Private E. F. Ander, a member of the 8th Reinforcements, and one of the youngest to volunteer from the Easttown shops. On receipt of the sad news, the staff of the shops assembled whilst the Union Jack was hoisted in honour of our late comrade. Mr W. J. Cuttle made a brief speech eulogistic of the dead soldier and proposed that a vote of sympathy be forwarded to the parents and family. This was carried in silence, Private Ander was a quiet lad, unassuming in manner, and popular with everyone. His younger brother Albert is also at the Front and has been twice wounded. To the parents and family we tender our sincere sympathy.
