Peter had some of his happiest days of his life at sea where he also celebrated his 16th 18th and 21st birthdays on the waves, he always said what fun it would be to meet up with old school pals and old shipmates to share these with.
Peter sadly died on the 14th August 2006 after a long illness, he is still extremely missed by all his family and friends. Unfortunately he was unaware of the web sight so never attended any of the reunions but his memories and stories were always told with great affection and fondness.
