War Veteran Hero remembered

One of the biggest stories of 2023 -- not just in Little Venice but almost it seemed throughout the world -- was the death of local resident Flight Sergeant Peter Brown, one of the last black "Pilots of the Caribbean" who came over from Jamaica aged 17 in 1943 & went on to fly five operations in Lancaster bombers. After he died alone aged 96 at his home in Warrington Crescent just over a year ago with no known family he seemed destined for a low-key funeral, but that was before a Council appeal to trace his relatives went viral & culminated in a hero's send-off at the RAF Church of St Clement Danes last May attended by hundreds of people. Now his friend & neighbour Paul Newman has organised a plaque on the bench at the top of Warrington Crescent where Peter often rested on his way to & from the shops. Our thanks to Westminster Council for providing the funding for this lasting memorial.
