On leaving the Navy after the Second World War, he auditioned at the Palace Theatre for chorus boys where he met Ralph Reader. He continued with his interest in Theatre as a Costumier with a shop in Leicester Square, which brought him into contact with such luminaries as Ivor Novello. In 1950, Ralph Reader approached Peter to work on the Costumes for his London Gang Show which resulted in him working with Ralph for the next 24 years.
Peter died on 16th March 2007, and at his funeral at West Ruislip Chapel the closing music was “We’re riding along on the crest of a wave”.
Our condolences go to his wife Kathy and family.
