Name: Robert (Bobby) Hunter
Age: 22
Date of Death: Monday 02 November 1942
Rank: Able Seaman
Regiment/Service: Royal Navy
Unit/Ship/Squadron: HMS President III
Honours/Awards: None Recorded
Service No. P/JX 268244
Cemetery/Memorial: Portsmouth Naval Memorial.
Reference: Panel 64 Column 1.
Additional Info. Son of Andrew and Alexina Hunter of Lochgelly. Missing presumed killed whilst serving on Steamship Empire Gilbert.

"At 01.18 hours on 2 Nov 1942 the unescorted Empire Gilbert (Master William Williams) was hit on the port side by two torpedoes from U-586 and sank within 2 minutes southwest of Jan Mayen. The U-boat had chased the ship for about two hours and missed with a first spread of two torpedoes at 00.17 hours. The Germans arrived at the sinking position after 30 minutes and rescued two men (deck boy Ralph Urwin and gunner Arthur Hopkins) sitting on a beam in the ice cold water, who were already unable to move and had to be lifted aboard. Von der Esch then tried to question six survivors on a raft but received no answer, so he took another man as prisoner aboard, the gunner Douglas Meadows. They took care of the survivors and landed them at Skjomenfjord, Norway on 5 November. The master, 46 crew members and 17 gunners (the ship was armed with one 4.7in, one 40mm, four 20mm and eight Twin Marlin machine guns) were lost."
