AndersonRainyLieutenantHe was mortally wounded in action at Zeekogat, Transvaal, July 10th, 1901, and died on the following day.  He was the only son of Staff Surgeon James Rainy Anderson, RN, and Mrs Anderson (now Mrs Darling Barker), and was born in September 1873.  He was educated at Neuenheim College and at Dr. Northcott's, Ealing, and entered the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, soon after his sixteenth birthday; gaining his commission in the Royal Engineers in February 1892, and was promoted Lieutenant November 1895.  He was fond of all sports and a good linguist.  After serving at Chatham, Portsmouth, Ceylon, and Plymouth, he embarked for South Africa on October 27th, 1899, and saw much service during the campaign.  He served in the forces commanded by Lieutenant Generals Sir J D P French and Sir C Tucker, and was in the advance on Bloemfontein and Pretoria.  At the latter place he had for some time charge of the electric lighting.  He was afterwards with General Beatson's column, to which, shortly before his death, he was appointed Intelligence Officer.  Lieutenant Anderson was present at the capture of Jack Hindon's camp, ten miles north of Middelburg, and had his horse shot under him July 9th, 1901, the day before he received his death wound.  On this occasion he is stated to have behaved with great gallantry, and owing to his dash a large capture of arms, ammunition, etc, was made.  He rendered good service, "none more gallant than he", and was mentioned in despatches; General Beatson stating he "deeply regretted his loss".  Lieutenant Anderson is buried in Middelburg Cemetery.  A memorial tablet was erected to his memory in the crypt of St Paul's Cathedral.
