The collection was put together by Anderson while serving in India during the First World War and the period after. Arthur Anderson was from an Irish family from County Kilkenny but he was born in the West Indies. He was educated at Woodtown House, Rathfarnham and Rossall School. He served in the North Tipperary Militia and later in 18th Royal Irish Regiment. From 1910, he was a subaltern in India with the Connaught Rangers, but was in Ireland at the outbreak of the First World War. He served with that regiment first on the Western Front, then from 1916 as part of the 7th Indian Brigade of the 3rd Indian Division in Mesopotamia, trying to relieve the siege of Kut. (A memoir and album covering his service in the First World War is in the Imperial War Museum.) He was badly wounded at Beit Aieesa and was sent to India to recover. After the war he stayed in India with the 37th Lancers (Baluch Horse). In 1922, the 17th Cavalry and 37th Lancers were amalgamated at Lucknow to form the 15th Lancers. He was Viceroy's Bodyguard Adjutant and was part of the entourage on the Duke of Connaught's visit to India in 1921. These maps were kept in his brown canvas bag, with leather handle and trimmings. With the old label of Royal Hibernian Hotel, Dublin, and in pencil 'Lt Col ALB Anderson. London via Waterloo to Sherborne'.
