At the commencement of this book we fifi nd Anderson engaged as the Governor of a prison colony in Australia before he is posted to India. There, with the 50th Regt. of Foot, he is soon sent to Burma.

In 1843 Anderson, by now a Brigadier, was engaged in the Gwalior War against the Mahrattas at the Battle of Punniar.Anderson, Joseph is the author of 'Sound Advance: Experiences of an Officer of HM 50th Regt. in Australia, Burma and the Gwalior War in India', published 2007 under ISBN 9781846771507 and ISBN 1846771501.
