I have found the record of his testimony at the trial of Major Gen Kurt Meyer.

Ill just post the first page, to show you the information that he was in C Company, North Nova Scotia Highlanders at the time of his capture (7 Jun 1944) and he was the No 2 on a Bren Gun

Sorry for the tardiness of my reply I was on vacation. The only thing I have for Peters at Rennes is this.
F/2907 Peters, Ernest Dominic CA Shrapnel right leg North Nova Scotia Highlanders On Canadian PW listing In hospital 4-Jul-44 Left Hospital 12-Jul-44

So he left the hospital before it was liberated on 4 August. He might have been held somewhere else prior to Rennes.
