    Default Arthur William George BROWN

    I am trying to find information about Arthur William George BROWN. What is know is that he was an Air Signaller during WWII, possibly serving with 209 Squadron on Catalinas (Unconfirmed). Also there is family lore that he was involved with the search for the Bismark. There is a photo of him dressed in uniform of an officer but cant tell what his rank was. In the photo he is wearing the 1939-43(-45) Star. He was born in 1912, married in 1943 and died in 1999. Any help from you wonder boys out in internetland would be greatly appreciated.

    Aaron.

    Thanks for that Peter. I did look at the LG site just now but did not come up with that entry. I found the commissioning entry on page 3559 but I did not find the Flt Sgt connection and I mistook his airman number for his commissioned number. Silly me. Thanks again.
