    Hello,

    2771 Sgt Alfred Ronald Vernon BROWN RAAF.

    2771 T/F/Sgt (Fitter IIA) Alfred Ronald Vernon BROWN RAAF (of No.2 Personnel Depot, Bradfield park, Sydney), was discharged from the RAAF as Permanently Medically Unfit, on 25 July, 1944. He had previously suffered from Rheumatic Fever which led to his admission to No.3 RAAF Hospital, Bradfield Park, on 8 December, 1943. T/Sgt Brown died from an unspecified illness (probably related to his earlier troubles with Rheumatic Fever), on 2 February, 1946. His death was considered attributable to his war service.

    Col.
