So sad to hear of Joes passing. Hope he rests in peace. Will miss him here.
I am so very sad to hear this. I sent him a message a little while ago as I hadn't seen him posting - I had no idea he was ill.
I will remember and cherish our meeting in Vlissingen, last November. An extremely nice gentleman. I feel honoured to have met him.
My condolences to his family.
Saddened to hear the news, such a lovely man never to be forgotten
Very sorry to hear the news. It seems that he was still writing fluently on here up to a week or 2 ago. And his posts were always so interesting , he was sharp and clear-thinking right to near the end.
Condolences to his family.
How very sad. May he Rest in Peace
Very sad news to hear of the passing of Joe Brown. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.
We on this forum were privileged to have Joe as one of "our" veterans.
RIP Joe Brown.

Joe Brown RIP
Will be sadly missed
Just found out about Joe's death and can only echo the sentiments above. Only a few weeks ago I visited the Buffalo "Snipe" memorial on Walcheren he was partly responsible for. He was a model member of this forum, always being polite, interesting and informative. I'll miss reading his posts.
Such saddening news. His presence will be much missed.
I can only echo what has been said above and wish his family all the best.
My condolences to his family. We will miss his wonderful contribution to this Forum.

Remembering Joe moving to the Aveyron and thought of him enjoying retirement in a very beautiful location in the Midi Pyrenees.

R.I.P. Joe Brown
Condolences to his family.
Oh how sad! It only seems two minutes ago that I was wishing him a happy 94th birthday here on this forum. May he now rest in peace. Condolences to his family.
Sorry to hear this very sad news. Condolences to all his family and friends. RIP .
I read the news about Joe's passing this morning and must admit to then being lost for words; choked in fact.
Didn't know him, exchanged only a few posts with him, avidly read his threads and his own blog. All I can say, nay repeat, is that he had a massive impact on this Forum (me included) in the short time he was with us. I echo what Tom Canning, Ron Goldstein, some of the Mods and others have said about the 'man'. I/We will miss him.
RIP Major Joe Brown.
Joe's posts and his memoirs will serve as a fitting memorial to him on here.
