Gents, bit of a long shot, but I met his sister whilst collecting for the Poppy Appeal this year and hopefully through the power of the internet will be able to reunite his sister with some of those that served with Peter or remember the incident. I have given her the details of claiming for the Elizabeth Cross as I think she is entitled using, Eligibility :-Those who died on a non-medal earning operational task where death has been caused by the inherent high risk of the task.
I have her permission to seek anyone who remembers and hopefully they will either message me or post on here. please feel free to share on any RE or BAOR groups. The youngest who would remember will be in their late 60s by my matelot reckoning. Many thanks
