Former servicemen stationed at HMS Peewit

Dorrie Millin has sent us this photograph of the late Derrick Peacock who received his  Arctic Star Medal in June 2013. Dorrie said, "these medals were a  long time a coming for our sailors who served in the Arctic in the last war". Derrick ended his time in the Royal Navy at HMS Peewit at Hatton. Before his death in March this year, Derrick followed the goings on in East Haven via our blog. Little did he know it but Derrick was not alone. We have been contacted by another former service man,  89 year old Peter Gummer. Peter was also stationed at  HMS Peewit and has follwed the progress of East Haven 800 too. We salute you gentlemen!
