Major Chris Hunter QGM had ‘the world’s most dangerous job, in the world’s most dangerous place’. As the British Army’s most experienced counter-terrorist bomb disposal specialist in Iraq, he risked his life on a daily basis.
Chris joined the British Army at sixteen and within three years was selected to undergo officer training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst.
Chris spent the majority of his 17 year career serving as a high threat bomb disposal operator and during that time served with a variety of specialist counter terrorism units. These included four years with the UK Special Forces and an attachment to the Security Service (MI5).
During his career he deployed to a number of operational theaters, and for his actions during an Iraq bomb disposal tour, he was awarded the Queen’s Gallantry Medal. His citation read: ‘There can be few other individuals who have so willingly played Russian roulette with their own life to safeguard the lives of others’.
