Flight Sergeant Peter Brown RIP
The funeral of a true hero took place today.
Peter Brown was just a teenager when he travelled from his home in Jamaica to Britain and signed up in the RAF during World War Two to defend this country and the world against the fascist menace of Nazi Germany.
The words "fascist" and "Nazi" are thrown around far too often these days against anyone the speaker disagrees with, and have been devalued as a result, but Peter Brown risked his life flying in Lancaster bombers to fight against the real thing.
Britain should always remember those who came from all around the world to fight on our side in the defence of freedom and justice and to oppose tyranny.
This is what the defence secretary had to say about his funeral, which was very well attended.
Rest in Peace
