Family Matters

Finch was born as the result of an affair his mother had with an officer in the Indian army.  His mother's husband, George Ingle Finch, divorced her as a result, but gained custody of Peter and sent him to be raised by his grandmother Laura.  Peter did not discover this until he was in his mid forties.

Fabulous Fathers

Peter's reputed father, George Ingle Finch was a member of the 1922 Mallory expedition up Mount Everest.  Finch's background as a research chemist lead him to develop a system for carrying artificial oxygen when mountaineering.
