Obituary: Peter Hollinson
Monday 15 April 1996
His entry into journalism may have been partly inspired by his father Harry Hollinson, a Second World War fighter pilot who did a nice line in cartoon space travel in the Lion Annual. I knew Peter well as a young man; we were choristers in the local parish church choir and members of various youth organisations in the town. Even then, he had a reputation for perceptive, and usually irreverent, observations about extra-curricular activities of our fellow parishioners. I recall that a notorious choir roue once threatened to take a horsewhip to him in the church vestry! In his youth Peter was a delightful, amusing and highly entertaining companion, with an impressive array of rock star impersonations and of wrecked showcases following `cultural' skirmishes with his younger brother. It is no surprise taht he was so successful in his chosen career and devastating that it was cut so short.
