David Ferguson Hunter
Birth: Nov. 28, 1891
Death: Feb. 14, 1965

World War I Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Corporal in the 115th Battalion, Highland Light Infantry. At Moeuvres, France, on September 16, 1918, the Highland Light Infantry was ordered to capture the outer defenses of the German Hindenburg Line. Corporal Hunter was in charge of a machine-gun outpost on the north-west side of the assault flank. During the attack by the enemy his post became isolated, but still resounded. Two days later, when the division retook Moeuvres, they found Hunter and his six men still holding their post. By then they had virtually no ammunition, food or water left. For gallantry in action, he was promoted Sergeant and awarded the Victoria Cross Medal by King George V at Buckingham Palace, on November 16, 1918. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
