At that time, Jack was living at 26 Easton Road in North York, Ontario.

Neil Robson’s uncle, F/O James McCartney, flew Hawker Typhoons with Jack Brown in 1943 and 1944, and was killed in action on August 10, 1944. Neil has been researching the story of his uncle and would welcome information that may help him find any family members of Jack Brown. Neil can be reached at .
