Walter Brown

The Victory Medal awarded to 3336 Walter Ewart Brown came to me from the WA RSL. He was 40 when he enlisted in Oct 1916. After his training, Walter was posted to 12th Battalion, AIF. His service record reveals nothing beyond a normal period of service during WWI.
Walter was born in NSW but enlisted in WA. On discharge he remained in WA. He didn't marry so our search focused on his siblings. One brother was Stuart Markwell Brown and it is though this line that we have been in contact with Walter's great nephew.
Thanks to the WA RSL and Anne W who managed to find that last piece of information.
The returned medal tally is now 1804.
