Charles Hunt was born in 1878 on Jersey, the largest of the Channel Islands. He joined the British Antarctic Expedition 1907-09 (Nimrod), led by Ernest Henry Shackleton, at the age of 30. Hunt joined the expedition on 30 November 1908 as part of the engineering crew, replacing Christian Craft as Assistant Engineer. He sailed south with Nimrod and then back to London, discharging himself at Poplar on 31 August 1909. After Nimrod returned to England, Hunt left and very little is known about the rest of his life.
