Arthur Stanley “Pete” Pinnion

From Ken Utton’s Sqn Personalities 1949:

Sqn Ldr ‘Colonel’ Mowatt: Had ditched a Hurricane and hit the bottom before getting out. Was local Town Major in Gutersloh before joining 4. He was killed with Pete Pinnion (Engineering Officer) in an Anson which hit a chimney at Munster when they were going home on leave. I believe he was one of the group who returned to France to dig up the Squadron Silver.

A relative of Pete Pinnion has asked me if anyone has any photos of Pete. If there are any floating around, or if anyone can add any more information on this era, please get in touch.
