Foreign and Commonwealth Office press release
Following news of the death of Sir Rex Hunt, former Governor of the Falkland Islands, this Remembrance Sunday, Foreign Secretary William Hague said:
"I was very sorry to hear of the death of Sir Rex Hunt. As Governor of the Falkland Islands he served his country and the Falkland Islanders with great distinction. Like the Islanders themselves, he demonstrated great courage and fortitude in the face of Argentine aggression during the Falklands conflict.
“After the conflict, he contributed to the transformation of the Islands into a vibrant, modern and successful democracy.
“The warm tribute the Falkland Islands Government has paid him today reflects the genuine respect, gratitude and affection felt for Sir Rex by the people he worked so hard to support. His contribution will not be forgotten."
