    Kevin Hopkins re Peter Soper. Peter was a good friend of mine at Philomel prior to our respective sea postings. I understand he was at Air NZ on the international flights prior to settling in Rotorua selling real estate. Peter unfortunately died of a heart attack.

    Re: Peter Soper. Kevin remember you at Tamaki and on Canterbury, your old man used to be the Chief at Ngapona. Yes I saw Sops a few times in Rotorua after leaving AIR NZ he bought the Tarawera Fishing Lodge and his health was not to good so sold it and became Real Estate Agent.
    Sops and I the only two Buntings to stay on Canterbury after the trip home from the UK 1971/72.
    We both went to Mururoa in 1973 on Canterbury.I cannot remember when he left the Navy as we were both Killicks in DCC Wellington 1974/75 and I did not see him again until Rotorua early 2000’s.

    Hi Cara, with regards to Peter Jackson, sadly he died in the early 80’s after leaving the Navy. I joined with Jacko and we were on Waikato together.
    Cheers Chook Fowler.
