DateAugust 2012DescriptionPeter grew up largely eating what he could trap, fish or grow in a house with no power and no running water. His father, he says was the first Cornishman to leave the village to enlist for World War 1, and the last to return home. Peter himself was too young for the Second World War but was called up for service straight afterward and became part of the post-war rebuilding of Germany, serving in the RAF station in Laarbruch, on the border between Holland and Germany. Harley interviewed him in August of 2012.
