We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of D.H. ‘Buster’ Brown, an icon amongst submariners, on Saturday, April 11th, 2020. From the time, HMCS Ojibwa became a gleam in our eye, Buster was put forward as a font of all knowledge when it came to Oberons. What is more, he took great pains to document his experiences and those of his mates over forty years. This effort is critical to the understanding the men of the Silent Service in Canada and includes a peek into the Royal Navy with whom he served aboard HMS Aeneas, an A-boat, during in the Indonesia-Malaysia conflict in the 1960s. This conflict saw the division of the island of Borneo into Malaysia, Sarawak and Indonesia.
An Outside Wrecker
The Smile Says it All
We look forward to learning more about him from his many colleagues who must have him at the forefront of their thoughts at this sad time of the COVID-19 crisis which will prevent them from gathering together.
