Citation

Corporal Hunt was a Section Commander in a Rifle Company of 42 Commando throughout the campaign. His qualities of leadership, determination, professionalism and good humour were outstanding, often in the most arduous and dangerous circumstances. During the attack on Two Sisters, he was the first to spot enemy positions and to give accurate reports which resulted in artillery fire being brought to bear. It was while leading his section that he became wounded and lost the use of his arm. Ignoring his wounds he continued to lead his men forward until they were successful in their mission.
