The First and Second World Wars cut short the lives of many composers and musicians who would have gone on to greater things had they lived. Here are a few to remember.
Browne was a composer, pianist, organist, music critic and friend of the poet Rupert Brooke. Vaughan Williams wrote Browne a reference describing him as having "a most musical nature and his artistic judgement and perception are remarkable." He saw action in the Dardanelles, and was wounded in the neck. During the Third Battle of Krithia he took part in an attack on Turkish trenches on 4 June 1915 during which he was wounded first in the shoulder and then the stomach. He died soon afterwards.
