Aubrey M Brown (62677) was located at Fort Lytton as a Radar Operator with RAAF No. 23 Radar Station from 29 May 1942 until 1 October 1942.

Aubrey Brown advised that before the evening of 31 May 1942, when the Japanese midget submarines attacked Sydney harbour, the three mother submarines were detected by No. 23 Radar Station RAAF at Fort Lytton. This provided some warning that an attack would most probably occur somewhere along the coast.
