Peter Hogan Willy Pearce
Peter Hogan/Willy Pearce.
I always spare a thought for a couple of guys off my 21 app Arm/Fitters Course who were killed in motorbike accidents.
They were Peter "Happy" Hogan. who died as a result of a an accident outside the Boatie in Butterworth. Pete. in my memory was exactly as his name implied , one of the happiest and best natured blokes it was my privilege to know. Played a pretty fair game of football as well.
The other bloke was our course "Casanova", Willy Pearce who's actual details, regarding the accident, I'm not sure of except I would guess he was on his MotorGuzzi at the time Willy, I remember was a pretty fair cross country runner and thought nothing of running from Forest Hill into town to see his girls.
I dont know of any others that may have gone in the meantime but these two will always remind me of those times at RSTT and beyond.
