Bonhams have released the catalogue for the auction including Hunter's group.

A Boer War D.C.M. group of five to Guide A.J.Hunter, Field Intelligence Department,

DC Ed VII (Guide A.J.Hunter. Field Intell: Dept:);
BSACM, Rhodesia 1896 reverse (0) (Corpl A.Hunter. M.R.F.);
CGHGSM (1) Bechuanaland (Sergt.A.J.Hunter. Diam. F Horse.);
QSA (5) Belm MR RoK Paard Tr (Guide A.J.Hunter. Int: Dept:);
KSA (2) (Guide A.J.Hunter. Field Intel: Dept.).

DCM London Gazette 31.10.1902.

For his excellent services to the Department for the whole war. Though troubled by a wound received during the early part of the war, and unable to use one arm, he has hardly missed one day's work. Of unquestionable gallantry and ability.

M.I.D. London Gazette 29.9.1902.
