Frederick Brown's wife was Maude Cassell. She was born in Allahabad (then India) and married Fred 20 Oct 1927 at Peshawar.
I am still waiting to hear back from MOD with Fred's service records.
BUT
in the meantime checking out if it might be possible to see whether or not Maude returned to Sussex with their son Basil Cecil Frederick Harrison Brown who was born 31 Dec 1927. Whether or not Frederick is buried at Brighton Cemetery (he was buried in India - British Library Africa and Asia section has no record of his death or burial) then I presume Maude went there to supervise the inscription on her husband's grave.
So where did she go and how did she live until 1943, when she appears at Perth West Australia?
Are there any records in Sussex for the years 1935-1943.
I have yet to find a migration record to Australia.
Your assistance is, as ever, invaluable.

The evidence strongly suggests that the inscription was commissioned by his siblings: it memorialises "our brother".
