Found Drowned. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 19 December 1914
Found Drowned. Last week an inquest was held at the morgue concerning the death of a. man whose body was found in a few inches of water near tile railway pier on our foreshore. For some days a doulbt existed as to the man's iden tity, although Tolson Brooks said he believed him to be a swagman whom he knew as "Cup-of-Tea." This ultimately proved correct, for Con stable McClure, who arrested "Cup of-Tea," last August on a charge of drunkenness, visited the morgue and certified to his identity. The man's correct name is John Anderson, and he at one time was a drummer-boy on the H.M.S. Nelson. The coroner's verdict was "Found drowned. No evidence to show how he got into the water."
