    Lieutenant-Colonel (temporary Colonel) Thomas Stephen James Anderson, the Lincolnshire Regiment, was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire.
    Colonel Anderson assumed his appointment as Education Officer-in-Chief, Middle East Forces, on January 2nd, 1943. As a result of his enthusiasm, energy and devotion to duty he has achieved in this short space of time two notable results. He has imbued the whole of the Army Education Corps under his command with his own fire and zeal, and built around him a corps of educationists second to none in the British Army at home or abroad. And he has provided the army in the Middle East, including great contingents of Allied Forces, with facilities for education on a scale which would have been considered impossible a year ago. He has rendered exceptional service.

    Colonel Anderson was born in Dublin.
