He later moved to Christchurch and met his future wife, Patricia Rose Howson at the Bournemouth Pavilion whom he married in 1953. They had 2 sons, Robert born in 1954 and David born in 1961. Patricia sadly passed away in 1999.
Peter moved to Lymington in 1959 while working at Wellworthys and remained there until 1989 when he took early retirement. He was wicket keeper for Wellworthy cricket team for many years and enjoyed gym workouts and swimming until he was 80. He was also a keen follower of Southampton Football Club.
Peter joined Lymington Fishing Club and served on the committee from 1987 until 2001. He continued to be a club member until his death. He especiallyliked to go flounder fishing in Keyhaven River. His best fish was a bass of 9lb 10oz caught in the Solent on the 12th July 1986.
