At the time of his death, Italy, where Tpr. Anderson is buried,  was not yet liberated perhaps explained by this entry for Caserta in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) databse: "Some of those buried here died in the hospital, others as prisoners of war (there was a POW Hospital at Caserta) before the Allied invasion."  From November 1942 No 1 Commando were in action against German and  Italian forces in North Africa after Operation Torch.
