Lindsay Brown was a proud veteran who gave service in the First and Second World War.

Lindsay enlisted in the 40th Battalion at Claremont on 13 July 1916 and saw action at Ypres and Passendaele in France.

During World War Two, Lindsay served his country by working in telecommunications in Hobart.

Lindsay was always proud of his past sacrifice and marched in the annual Hobart ANZAC Day parade with his old comrades.

William Zeeman, of The Hutchins School, in Hobart, researched his Great-Great-Uncle Lindsay Brown for the Frank MacDonald Memorial Study Tour.

William is very proud of the service and sacrifice that both Lindsay and his brother, Oliver, made to Australia, and wrote:

“Investigating Lindsay’s story has taught and showed me importance of family and brotherhood. It has displayed his honour of mateship and dedication, despite hardships. It is everyone’s duty to keep stories like Lindsay’s alive and real”.

Lindsay Brown passed away in November 1992.
