His obituary appeared on page 5 of The Hong Kong Telegraph, 1925-07-06:
INSPECTOR PETER ANGUS.
Succumbs in Hospital.
We deeply regret to have to chronicle the death of Inspector Peter Angus which took place at 3.30 yesterday morning at the Government Civil Hospital, after an illness lasting over two months. The deceased has been confined to Hospital for practically a month suffering from internal trouble, and underwent an operation about two weeks ago. He was progressing quite favourably for a time, but this failed to continue and his condition gave rise to anxiety some days ago.
The late Inspector Angus, who was a native of Edinburgh, came to the Colony from the Glasgow police, and joined the local force on the January 25, 1897, at the age of 23 years. He was promoted to the rank of Lance Sergeant three years later and Sergeant in 1903. He was acting Second Class Inspector for one year from 1914, and after serving as Second Class Inspector from the following year, he was made Inspector in 1919. Two years later he was appointed Divisional Inspector of the Water Police Station, Tsim-shatsui, and held that position until the time of his death.
The deceased, who was 51 years old, was an ardent worker and a valuable member of the Police Force.
Few residents of long standing were so widely respected and genuinely liked as was Inspector Angus. An officer with excellent qualifications, he was trusted by his superiors and, highly thought of by all who had the pleasure of working under him. He was known as few people are known here, and will be widely mourned. The sympathy of the whole Colony will be extended to his widow and family. He leaves three sons and a daughter.
His death is all the more tragic by reason of the fact that he had arranged to go Home next Spring. His years of pensionable service were complete a year ago, but for family reasons he decided to stay on a year longer and was keenly looking forward to retirement in the old country.
