I am hoping to trace the Army Career of my Father -in-Law Ernest William Brown. Ern died in 1975, but often spoke of his time in the Army. He was born and lived in Consett County Durham, and said that as a teenager he joined the HLI in Durham in the late 1920s. He often said, he thought he was joining the Durham Light Infantry! He served in India, and left the army in 1935/36 when he married.
The only personal possessions of his time in the Army are the photo’s shown here. One of Ern in uniform, and the other of his Regiment in India.
