Dunsford Boy made Captain

Mr. and Mrs. Walter Brien of Dunsford have just recently beech advised of the promotion to the rank of Capt. of Harry E. Brown, a native of Ilford, Essex, England and who had resided with them at Dunsford for 10 years prior to his enlistment in 1939.

Captain Brown enlisted with the 45th Field Battery R.C.A. as a gunner and was among the first to sign up following the declaration of war on Germany.

Arriving overseas in November 1941 he was promoted to sergeant and served for a time in England, later going to North Africa and from there to Italy where he is still serving and where the promotion was granted. He is attached to an artillery unit.

A brother, Robert Brown, is serving with the Royal Navy and was aboard the vessel which carried King George VI to Malta during his tour of that area.

His parents still reside at Ilford where his father is employed as a probation officer.
