Phil Hunt[edit]

Programmer and entrepreneur based in Edinburgh. A founding member of PPUK, I've been interested in Pirate issues since the 1990s. I don't have any direct military experience except for a short time in the officer training corps when I was at university, but I've always had an interest in defence policy and military history.
