I have found in my father's papers a page from the Daily Sketch newspaper dated 12 May, 1938. It shows photographs of the funeral of Peter Ford. He was promoted Captain and on that day was killed in a riding accident when he was competing in the VC race at the Plymouth Garrison Horse Show. I have tried to find out if he had any living relatives but to no avail. I am aware, however, of his wife and marital status: in the NA, but have not found details of his birth. I know that in 1935 his mother lived in Fleet, Hampshire.
