Private Richard Hunt

In this final programme of the series, Jeremy Vine meets the mother of Private Richard Hunt on the family farm in Abergavenny.

Hazel Hunt shares memories of her son and the music he loved to listen to. Talking through a list of his favourite songs, she paints a picture of the young sniper who was a drummer in a band.

Richard was seriously wounded in Afghanistan when an Improvised Explosive Device went off under the Warrior he was driving. He was flown back to Selly Oak hospital in Birmingham where he died with his family and friends at his bedside.

They have since set up a charity in memory of their own Welsh Warrior. The Richard Hunt Foundation helps Welsh soldiers to cope with the physical and mental scars of war and offers support to their families.

Producer Jill Misson.
