The cause of death of Trooper Barrie Anderson is not known to this archive.

At the time of his death where Trooper Anderson is buried was not yet liberated. This is  perhaps explained by the entry for Caserta War Cemetery 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.
