Walter Hewitson (Nunky) Brown
1977851892son of John BrownHe was a lovely man. I knew him when I was a child. He used to visit my father who was was a Prison Governor and he always brought my brother and I giant bars of Cadbury's Milk Chocolate which he took out of the inside pocket of a huge overcoat. I think he once brought me a doll which was a huge gift. I remember that his eyesight began to fail and that he was I think diabetic. The last time I saw him was in Polmont when he was visiting my parents and of course my father at Polmont Young Offenders Institution. He lived in a flat in Edinburgh and I believe I was there once as a small child. The number on the door was 21 or 22 and I still look out for it if I pass that way. He made a huge impression on me.
Jessie Ann Mathew
1936 wife of John Brown

Uncle Walter was my Great Uncle. During his career he was Her Majesty's Inspector of Borstals for Scotland, and a supporter (patron?) of Dr. Barnardo's Homes. He had some military service during the WW1 in France, I think in the Supply Corps(?) during which time he won a medal for growing beans which he was required to exchange with his commanding officer who had won a medal for growing roses. Food supply awards were deemed to be more prestigious! His great friend was Major Moncrieff, a member of the Royal Company of Archers.
