Mundia family tree ( Son of Jack and Annie Peterkosky (nee Lewis), of Poplar, London. freebmd citation: It's possible he had two brothers, Albert P (b 1915) and Louis (b1921) I can find Albert's birth record but not that of Louis. Interestingly, the report in the JC of his death states (28 Nov 1941): Killed Gunner H. Peterkosky, R.A. Gunner Peterkosky was the son of Mr. I. Peterkosky, of 44, Glenfield Road, Leicester. So there's a disparity between the CWGC and the JC.
