Additional Information
Research Notes and References
PETERKOSKY, HARRY
There’s a photo of him in uniform at http://www.mundia.com/us/Gallery/Details/6312862/-1311980795/e12f318a-b7d2-4703-bee8-372f39440dbb
Death registered in Boston, Lincolnshire
Siblings:
Nelly, Fay, Kate (Kitty), Sylvia, plus two others, unnamed as far as I can find. Mundia family tree (http://www.mundia.com/us/Tree/Family/6312862/-1312029625)

Son of Jack and Annie Peterkosky (nee Lewis), of Poplar, London.

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.
