Squadron Leader M P Brown AFC
Thu Jan 20, 2011 9:47pm

I regret to announce that I have heard that Squadron Leader Peter Brown passed away today.
He flew with 41 Squadron during the Battle and recently wrote 'Honour restored'.
I'm sure many on here would have met him over the years.
Blue skies Sir.
