The Great War 1914-18
Corporal David F Hunter 1/5 HLI
For most conspicuous bravery and devotion to duty. Corporal Hunter was detailed to take on an advanced post close to the enemy who drove back the posts on Corporal hunter’s flanks and established posts in close proximity to, and around him, thus completely isolating his command. Nevertheless he maintained his position and repelled frequent attacks, until the evening of the third day, when a counter-attack relieved them. Without food and water he had held on to his post for over 48 hours. The outstanding bravery , coupled with the determination, fortitude and endurance displayed by Corporal Hunter is beyond all praise and is a magnificent example to all.
