Peter Savage, the well known and respected photographer and writer, lost his fight with cancer on Tuesday night.

Peter was involved in hockey in various positions throughout his life - a true servant of the game. I first knew him when he was umpiring and writing for Hockey Sport. We were both Police Officers, he with Sussex Police and me with the Met. We were both members of the Hockey Writers' Club and served on the committee for many years. In 2008 he was elected as the Chairman of the Club and I was the secretary.

He was a great supporter of The Hockey Museum (THM) and last December THM chose to dedicate its Oral History Collection in his name.
