Sgt Peter Frederick Inman, 1108515, Wireless Operator
/ Air Gunner, Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve, Nationality : United Kingdom,
KIA 3 July 1942, Aged 20
SEE CREWS AND LOSSES for Stirling Mark I BF313 BU-T
Named on the following Memorial : Cartmel War Memorial
Born 31 July 1921
Buried in WESTERNIELAND GENERAL CEMETERY, DE MARNE. Reference : N 473
Son of Joseph Frederick and Margaret Inman, of Cartmel, Lancashire.
Peter lived in Cartmel until he joined the RAF. He attended Cartmel School and Ulverston Grammar. After leaving school he worked for Grange Motors, in the office at "Lymehurst" and booking office at Crown Hill, organising coach tours around the country and helping to run the local bus service. He also did duty as bus conductor.
Peter joined the RAF from home at Garrett Houses and went to Wilmslow and Blackpool for basic training. He was then posted to Wellesbourne-Mountford a Number 6 Group Operational Training Unit (OTU), Abingdon - 6 Group Headquarters, to Manby, Yorkshire for air-gunnery training, then Haverigg for three months, back to Abingdon and, finally to his operational base, Stradishall in Suffolk as a W O / Air Gunner.
The mission on 3 July 1942 was Sgt. Inman's 9th mission, four of them the famous 1000 bomber raids. He would have arrived back to enjoy a long, 2 month, leave.
Peter is fondly remembered locally, most people saying, "He was a nice lad, Peter." His mother died in 1966, his father in 1974. Peter's brother lives a few miles away. Joseph F. Inman was a member of the Border Regiment. He was conscripted in 1917 and won the Military Medal as a Lewis gunner in 1918.
The people of the area where Peter's aircraft came down sent a miniature Dutch flag to Cartmel, as a token of gratitude. Mr Inman places this flag on the War Memorial every Remembrance Day.
The following information regarding Peter Inman is the result of the tireless
research of Howard Martin, without which, Peter's sacrifice would have been
lost in time and simply another grave in another cemetery. Howard has kindly
allowed me to copy this information from his site, and Peter once again
can take his place among his comrades and friends.

My Grandfather went on after the war to own an Auckland landmark Inghams Hardware. I grew up hearing many stories of him and his crew flying over Germany, blocking radar, putting out a fire in their engine, him passing out over Germany to awake with him crew taping his mask back onto his face and trying to revive him.

Named on a photograph of 214 Squadron members at Brackla, January 1945 - see Album 4
Brackla near Nairn in Invernesshire. It was the hutted camp of ACAC, Air Crew Allocation Centre, a clearing house for tour expired aircrew. In spite of heavy losses, far more had survived than could be used for further flying duties and it was quite a problem finding suitable niches for all.
