"Flying Officer Anderson has shown outstanding keenness to participate in operational flying over the Arakan, the Imphal and Burma fronts. He has destroyed a large number of Japanese stores and motor transport and, on one occasion, his skill and ability in locating and destroying the first tank, culminating in the destruction of most of the tank force opposing our ground forces at the Wyinmu Bridgehead. His determination and cheerfulness have always been outstanding."
