Redcar will be
remembering one of its sons by dedicating a memorial to him. Sir Rex Hunt, who served the Falklands as

He died in November last year, aged 86, on 11 November and a memorial
service for him was held at Christ Church Cathedral in Stanley.
A memorial has been commissioned from the annual budgets of Redcar and

Zetland Park, Redcar, on Friday, September 6 and Sir Rex's widow, Lady Mavis
Hunt will attend.
Our thoughts and prayers will be with lady Mavis and the family at this
