Mate,
Read "Maygar's Boys" by Cameron Simpson

Its has Bert in it (no photo but).

He was MID on the 30th June 1915 and was WIA 7-8-15 during the charge at the Nek.

It does have many photos of men from the 8th LHR which you may find of interest.

S.B

Gerry if in Vic. Anzac House used to diplay the original prints of the various Sqd.s (Official Squadron portraits prior to depature). But they've recently shifted premises so i cant tell you were they've gone now. Well worth alook if able as they are nice and big.Some chap up at Buna Barracks Albury(the VMR Museum i think) got negs made of them so i heard .....Anzac House got a copy of them but they seem to have lost them! I take it you know what he looked like as if he's in there he should'nt be hard to spot. Don't wish to get your hopes up but try contacting either of the above and see if you can't get a copy or atleast a look-see should you be in the neighbourhood. Hope it's of some help.Ofcourse all of these are in Cam Simpsons book but to small for positive identifaction for the most part. Also checkout AWM and Nat Archives collection (photo database) especially the collection taken by J Campbell.

Entry in Allan Box's book re Sanderson reads:

"SANDERSON 329 Tpr Bert Sanderson MID 8th LH BSqn (1889).
A butcher of Violet Town Victoria, he was an original member of the regiment. He was mentioned in despatches for his behaviour on Gallipolli where he became a casualty and was repatriated to Australia in November 1915."
