Peter Birch - Herr Ulrich

Post by Auf Wiedersehen, Pet » Sun Oct 01, 2017 6:51 pm

For those of you who haven’t heard, Peter Birch who played Herr Ulrich sadly died on September 13th. He died at The Royal Marsden Cancer Hospital in Brompton, London from oesophageal cancer.

From the comments on social media he was a popular character in Pet, and I’m personally saddened that we never got the chance to get him to a fan gathering or event.

We did a little, Bomber had contact back in 2003 but nothing recent. We had a plan to write to him for an interview but time constraints and getting other interviews done meant we didn’t.

Mods, can this thread (or at least the gaffer’s initial post) be merged into the fallen heroes memorial wall thread please?
