Private A Brown, Norfolk Regiment

I know very little about this man and Chailey Parish magazine only gives the briefest details, noting first in April 1917 that Private Brown, A is serving with the 25th Norfolk Regiment, and repeating this every month thereafter up to and including July 1919.

Of course, there was no such formation as the 25th Norfolk Regiment and so the 2/5th Norfolk Regiment seems more likely. There are though, too many candidates for this Territorial Force unit to make a positive connection to Chailey's Private A Brown and so for the moment, Private A Brown remains a mystery.
