I have just picked up the photo below showing an officer.

On the bottom, the man has signed it with his name, followed by Lt 2/4 LNL

I assume this is the 2/4th Btn Loyal North Lancashire Regiment.

I have looked at the name and it appears to be Joseph Hunl or Hunt, however

I have been unable to find a MIC with that name, and was wondering if anybody might

be able to suggest what the name could be, or perhaps tell me anymore about him.

Any help would be great. It's quite a nice photo and it would be good to find out

a lottle more about the man.

Joseph Hunt looks a good call to me, No MIC suggests he either never went overseas or he never claimed his medals.

The July 1916 Army List shows a 2nd Lieutenant J. HUNT under 4th Bn (Territorial).

He joined on 6 December 1915.

Why not send a copy to the Curator at the QLR Museum Preston?

Thank you for all of the information. Can I ask where you found out about the J Hunt who was wounded? Do you

think this could be the chap in the photo?

If it is the man in the photo, why can I not find a MIC for a J Hunt? Could it be that he didn't claim his medals?
