West, Peter G

Peter died in the USA in 1987.

In 1942/43 Peter was flying Typhoons as a Flying Officer in 164 Squadron RAF. He was awarded an immediate DSO ( see Roll of Honour) which was most unusual for an FO. He drew the fire of enemy batteries near Boulogne by attacking them with his cannon enabling other members of his Squadron to fire their rockets into radio targets. He was badly shot up and wounded but managed to make it home and land safely.
