2 *As a body, A&SH only served in Crete – and only from 17 / 28 May 1941. If Sgt Brown remained with his Unit on Crete until his capture, it would most likely have been at Tympaki or Heraklion on 28th May.
However, from his Army records there is a confusing reference to his being attached to HQ British Forces Greece. If this is correct, his capture may well have been at Navplion on 28th April.
