His wife and son, Jean & Robert Wilson unveiled the plaque, which is given jointly by the band and the Watchet / Saint Renan Twinning Society of which Peter was chairman for over 20 years.

Moving tributes were led by Marilyn Binding on behalf of the twinning, and by Pete Owen for the band. Richard Allen led a prayer in memory of Peter and the band played two of his favourite hymns, Nearer My God to Thee & The Old Rugged Cross. They also played Over the Rainbow as requested by Peter's family.

In his amazing 70 years with the band, Peter played a host of instruments, including trombone and solo cornet, and held the positions of secretary, chairman, music librarian and deputy conductor.
