Whilst efforts were being made tracing many old friends from Series 37 and Series 38 ahead of the very successful Series 38 50 year Anniversary Reunion held in Dawlish in July 2010, a number of Maurice "Mo" Hunt’s old friends tried hard to locate him without success. Mo was a cheerful, patient and tolerant person who in his younger days read lots, worked hard and enjoyed the outdoor life, he particularly enjoyed climbing in the Scottish hills and mountains. On completing his apprenticeship he served at RNAS Daedalus, Culdrose, Lossiemouth, and Yeovilton, also at RAF Leuchars together with several spells in squadron service aboard HMS Eagle.
Sadly, after a continued search we heard and confirmed that he had passed away. Mo Crossed the Bar in July 2001 at the young age of 58 in hospital at Reading. We are all very sorry to have lost our friend from our early days at Fisgard having left his home in Barnstable at the age of 16 to start his apprenticeship. We all remember Maurice with great affection.
