William George Anderson was born in Striglett, VIC and was living in Ballarat as a Labourer when he enlisted in the 14th Battalion, 24th Reinforcement on 9 January 1917 at the age of 40. Soon after reaching England he was hospitalised with a chronic elbow complaint. Other medical problems followed, particularly bronchitis, and his time was spent in England. He returned to Australia in early 1919 and was subsequently discharged.
