Additional Information: Son of William and Ellen Brown; husband of Mary Elizabeth Brown, of Red Row, Portadown. Portadown News, 5th August 1916: The late Pte R. H. Brown. Private W. Sinton, BEF, France, writing to Mr Wm Brown, James Street, says: I was greatly upset when I heard of Robert Henry’s death. He was my best chum on the battlefield, we were always together, and nothing but death could part us. He gave me two little reminders of our days together. He was wounded in the leg and took shelter in a house by the wayside; another shell came right through the roof of the building and killed him. He was well liked by all the men of the battalion and had numerous comrades no matter where he went. I hope that the end will soon be in sight and that the Germans will be thoroughly punished for the wicked deeds they had committed. You have my sincere sympathy in your trouble.
