Remembering those who fought in the Great War.

Robert Eaglesham Brown

HUSBAND OF MRS. ANNIE BROWN, OF 41 SIR MICHAEL ST., GREENOCK. Worked in the Small Bread Dept of Greenock Cooperative

We had a visit from his granddaughter who tells of how Robert, a father of six, and oldest of his family, had said no-one was going to put a white feather on his door. He signed up and his granddaughter was told that her father and grandmother accompanied him as he went away - he gave his cufflinks to his son, and that was the last time they saw him. Her father was 'graciously' allowed to leave school a year early in order to take employment in Scotts in order to support his family. He became a draughtsman in Scotts

Attested with Army Service Corps. Embodied 24/7/16. Transferred compulsory to Royal Scots 30/7/17. Posted missing some time between 9th and 16th April 1918

Remembered at Ploegsteert Memorial, Berks Cemetery Extension, Belgium. Panel 1.
