Description

James Hunt was born on 10 Oct 1885 in Lambeth, the son of Rowland Hunt, a Metropolitan Police Constable, and his wife, Rosa. The family lived at 3 Gray's Place, Lambeth before James joined the Royal Navy on 26 Oct 1903, purchasing his discharge on 9 Sep 1910 and transferring to the Royal Fleet Reserve on 10 Sep 1910. Hunt joined the Metropolitan Police himself on 31 Oct 1910 as a Police Constable of "G" Division. In his policing role, Hunt was awarded 5/- 'for stopping a runaway horse at personal risk'. Recalled to the Royal Fleet Reserve on the outbreak of WWI, Hunt was a Leading Stoker with "Hermes", "Zephyr" and "Boudicea". On his naval record is written: "If this man dies, is reported missing, or discharged Shore, New Scotland Yard to be informed." After WWI, Hunt returned to the Metropolitan Police until retiring on 3 Nov 1935 and dying on 30 May 1947.
