Peter was Auxilier Walter Potter's son. When one of the Patrol broke his arm badly, Peter was co-opted to join the Patrol as a replacement, but was called up just a couple of months later. He served as a rear gunner on Lancaster bombers.

Peter marched at the Cenotaph in London in remembrance of Auxiliary Units in November 2015.

Peter’s story is recorded in a book by Hugh Frostick, Tales of Peter Potter, which includes his time with Auxiliary Units and in the RAF.
