Capt Brown was a prisoner aboard Admiral Graf Spee and Altmark. He was rescued by HMS Cossack. His family have placed his account of these events on the internet.

My father took my brother and I down to Leith Docks to watch the Cossack berth. Here it is on Pathe News

Thank you Binnacle, fascinating stuff. It just goes to show how the same story can be told in differing ways, depending on the individuals perspective.
