Thomas Brown was born in Wolverhampton and was the son of Matthew and Margaret Brown of 6 Court 3 House, Wolverhampton Road, Dudley. He was a pre-war regular soldier and served in the 3rd Battalion of the Worcesters and was sent to France with the British Expeditionary Forces on the 12th August. They were at Mons to face the first German advance and took part in the retreat which forced the army back to the Marne. The German forces were then obliged to retreat to the Aisne where several important actions were fought. In one of these on the wooded heights above the river a contested German advance led to many casualties. Among those killed in action on the 19th September was Private Thomas Brown. He was 28 years of age and is commemorated on the La Fert?-sous-Jouarre Memorial and on the Dudley and St. James church Memorials.
