Sergeant G Brown


Claro Times 6th March 1915

We are pleased to learn the Sergeant G Brown, of Cheapside, Knaresborough, has been promoted Company Quartermaster-Sergeant in the 2/5th West Yorks, and is at present engaged in trench duty on the coast. He has seven years' service in the Territorials. After enlisting as a Private, his first appointment was as cook to the 5th West Yorks, and after passing a course of examination at Aldershot, was promoted Sergeant Master Cook, which he has been for the past five years. Quartermaster-Sergeant Brown was with a company at Redcar, and witnessed the bombardment of the Hartlepools, the flash of the guns on the German war vessels being distinctly visible from the Yorkshire seaside resort.
