But Iraq was different…
By the time Chris had arrived in Iraq in 2004, he was one of the most experienced bomb disposal technicians in the British Army.
For over fourteen years Hunter had served in the Balkans, East Africa, Northern Ireland, Colombia and Afghanistan, but Iraq was different.
Roadside bombs and constant rocket attacks from insurgents were a part of his daily life in Iraq.
Major Chris and his team were very successful at disabling the insurgent’s devices, but their success came at a price.
The bombers placed a bounty on Hunter’s head and also started designing bombs specifically for him.
