Private Charles Brown is believed to have died in a battle accident on board a ship. At the time of his death No 9 Commando were engaged in operations by the Pelopenese peninsula, Greece. They were transported to various locations on HMS Prince David. More can be read of this period in our No 9 Commando Overseas History document.
 
The War Diary for 9 Commando records that on the 28 Sept 1944 at 1000 hrs, 1 OR received battle accident and died on board ship 1440 hrs. The entry gives no name, but no other No 9  Commando died on this day, and, if he was buried at sea, it explains why he is remembered on the Athens Memorial.
