The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade is seeking the public's help in locating relatives of Jamaica-born, Royal Air Force (RAF) Flight Sergeant Peter Brown, who died alone in his home in Westminister, North London, England, on December 17, 2022.

According to an article published by The Sun, Brown is thought to have signed up for basic training in Jamaica at age 17. He then completed his training in Canada. From there, he travelled to Britain with a group of colleagues and joined the RAF in September 1943. Up to the time of his death, Brown is believed to have been single and had no children. Brown was reportedly born on August 22, 1926 and his last known relative was his mother Hermine Brown of a Cargrill Crescent, St Andrew, address.

The Jamaican High Commission in London, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade, is trying to find relatives or anyone who may have known Brown.

Members of the RAF and other military figures have organised a funeral to commemorate Brown's life, on Wednesday, March 29 at the Mortlake Crematorium, Kew Meadow Path, Richmond in London.

Relatives are being asked to make contact with Desreine A. Taylor, minister counsellor, diaspora and consular affairs at the Jamaican High Commission at: 0207-823-9911 or email at
