Hunt was previously wounded in the Battle of the Aisne and went back to
the front in February. He has an elder brother serving in the 2nd Wilts in
"It may be some comfort to you that he died in the victorious
advance with his face to the enemy"
25 September 1915. Killed in action. L/Cpl George Hunt youngest son of
Charles Hunt, London Road,. Chippenham
Wilts Times 16 October 1915
The 1901 census shows Charles and Jane Hunt living at 32 Borough Cottage
with their children Frederick Charles, Florence Ethel, Mary Agnes and
Alfred George. Alfred's age is given as 4 years old. This would make him
19 when he died. However the newspaper report shows his age as 17. The
CWGC does not record his age. I believe that there was a mistake
made in the newspaper report and his age was really 19.
