Diving Stations is the inspiring story of Captain George Hunt’s career.Born in Uganda and then educated in Glasgow he was determined to join the Navy and at 13 years old he entered HMS Conway.
His pre-war years saw him serving worldwide. In 1939, on the outbreak of war he was already serving in submarines. Over the next six years, he was rammed twice, sunk once and had hundreds of depth charges dropped around him. He gave more than he got!
While in command of the Unity Class Submarine Ultor, mainly in the Mediterranean he and his crew accounted for an astonishing 20 enemy vessels sunk by torpedo and 8 by gunfire as well as damaging another 4 ships. His fifteenth mission was described by the Admiralty as ‘unsurpassed in the Annals of the Mediterranean Submarine Flotilla’.
