This was after Commander Rear Admiral Robert English was killed in a plane crash in January of 1943. Captain Brown took over the duties of Admiral English until a replacement could be found. He was relieved of his temporary command by Rear Admiral Charles Lockwood Jr. who was assigned to that command.
Brown remained on Lockwood's staff and before the war ended. Lockwood had him promoted to Rear Admiral. His commands were Sea of Japan patrols, Submarine Squadron Four. His other accomplishments included a training program, torpedo tests and orginization of wolf packs. Brown was a wonderful officer and worked endlessly to keep the war effort going.
