Matthew Jack Page BROWN - "Jack"

Matthew Jack Page BROWN, known as Jack, was born on the 14 June 1897 in Rowledge, Surrey. He was the son of Matthew Brown, a stonemason, and Jane Page, a laundress.

The following below shows Jack as a RMP, Regimental Military Policeman in the 1/25th Londons, which is identifiable by the 25th London battle badge on the helmets. His grandaughter says that the family story was that served in Mesopotamia and was involved with Sopwith Camel aircraft. It is possible that he transferred or was attached to the RAF at some stage.
