David Dickerson asks…
Does anybody have any memories of my good army friend Peter Cooper. Peter played trumpet with the OTS, worked for Elba Cars and latterly sold Camper vans. For some years he manufactured glasses in the Old Town and his Father had Optician shops in the Town. One of his Sons, Christopher was my Godson who crewed on the Hastings Lifeboat and tragically was killed in a diving accident.
