Private Alexander Anderson

Private Alexander Anderson, 1st/8th ( Territorial ) Battalion, Durham Light Infantry. He died on 3rd November 1918, aged 31 whilst a Prisoner of War In Germany. He was the son of the late James and Catherine Anderson and is commemorated on the Malbork Memorial, Poland. He had been born in Coldstream at Darnchester West Mains where his father was the Farm Steward and had enlisted in Bishop Auckland. He had been employed at Lennel House as Major Waring’s chauffeur and delighted in tooting the car horn hence his nickname “Toot” Anderson. As he had been born and worked in Coldstream we feel he is worthy of inclusion here.
