Peter Fraser



Pay Respect

From RHQ

Ladies and Gentlemen,
It is with sadness that Hawkeye has learned of the passing of Major (Retd) Peter Fraser RA/Int Corps/AAC (2 Sep 30 – 22 Mar 22). Peter commissioned into the Royal Artillery in 1951, serving with 75 and 54 Anti Aircraft Regiments in his early years. Following a brief period with 68 Trg Regt RA he attended the Long Russian Language Course. Graduating from that course in 1957 he was posted as the Intelligence Officer (IO) to 4 Communications Company and then served in that role with the Royal Signals, including 10, 12 and 1 Signals Regiments. Following a Company Commanders course at the School of Infantry, he joined HQ 1 Guards Bde as their GSO 3 Int in 1960 and then moved to HQ 51 Infantry Bde in the same role. He was selected for Pilot training and graduated from Light Aircraft Course 153 as an Auster pilot in 1963. There followed a posting to 654 Sqn AAC, at that time-based in Hildesheim. He converted to rotary in 1963 and on promotion to Major joined HQ 1 Wing AAC in Detmold as the IO. He retired from Regular service in 1967 but remained as a TA pilot until 1974. His retirement from the Regular Army was followed by a long career with the Civil Service until full retirement in the late 1990s.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.

The funeral for Peter Fraser will be held at 1400 on Tue 12 Apr 22 at St Stephen’s Church, Baghurst, Tadley RG26 5JY.
