REGINALD WILLIAM GEORGE BROWN
Remembered with honour Soissons Memorial.
He enlisted in Southampton; was entitled to the Victory and British War medals, and was presumed killed in action. Unfortunately, Reginald’s Service Record appears to be one that did not survive the World War Two bombing.
There is a brief article about Reginald in the West Herts and Watford Observer dated 6 July 1918.
Son of Robert and Mary Ann (nee DUMPER) BROWN of Alton, Hants; husband of Edith Elizabeth (nee POCOCK) BROWN of Watford.
His parents married 3 June 1879 in Hampreston, Dorset.
Reginald was born 1882 in Tatworth, Somerset, and baptised 16 April 1882 in Tatworth. He married 14 September 1911 in Berkhamsted, Herts; and resided in East Leigh. Edith never remarried, and died 6 July 1954 in Watford aged 65.
On the 1891 Census, aged 9 he lived in Litton Cheney, Dorset, with his parents and two siblings. On the 1901 Census, he is proving elusive. On the 1911 Census, a photographer aged 29, he was a boarder in Berkhamsted.
