Last Anzac Casualty.
Dear "Non-Com." - Re that last Anzac casualty. Trooper Baxter, "B" Squadron, 10th Light Horse, was wounded while filing down to the beach on the night of the evacuation. Up to now I have been under the impression that he was the only casualty during that stunt. - J. Ryder, Lake Biddy.
