This is an interesting piece, as it shows all the things that PETER loves and enjoys. These are as follows:

  • Fencing Kit: PETER has always been a keen Fencer, with both Sabre and Foil, and has fought at the famous Green Club.
  • Vivien Leigh: He appeared with Ms Leigh in Duel of Angels, and still describes her as “The love of my life”.  
  •  Tennis Racquets: He would play Tennis daily on the private courts at the rear of his home in London. One of his favourite pastimes now is watching matches from around the world.
  • Skis: He began skiing in the early Seventies, and became quite proficient.
  • Bust of Beethoven and Beatles Albums: PETER has an eclectic taste in music – from Classical to Pop.
  • Lion: He loves animals, and watches any and all wildlife programmes on TV.
  • Car: PETER has had a life-long love of cars, and has owned many classics.
  • Fresh Veg and Fruit: It’s a little-known fact, but PETER is a fabulous cook, and says that he finds cooking “therapeutic”. He’s always eaten healthily.
  • Dog: He’s owned dogs all his life – his most recent were an Afghan Hound called Yuseff, and two Conrgi’s named Cassio and Pipistrello – the latter because “he looked like a bat”.
  • Jewellery: PETER collects both wrist watches and clocks.
  • Flowers: He was inundated with flowers at the height of his fame, so always had bouquets of them around the house.
