A belated well done to all involved. RIP.

As a matter of interest, who found Major Hugh Hunt? I had him on my "In Process" list but had yet to purchase the death certificate. I recall seeing a story on the ABC last year about some people researching war graves in, I think, Cornelian Bay Cemetery (Hobart), so perhaps they found him.

Major Hunt was DAAG and QMG of Tasmania (same for West Australia prior to that).
