This is interesting material, but I should point out that Hunter was not an official keeper of the Colechester Reef Lighthouse. He was an occasional relief keeper.

Here is the link to the actual website:


The first paragraph states he was a 'spare lighthouse keeper' ...

When the Button's, the official light keepers, wanted time on shore he would fill in for them.

A pretty interested find. Thanks for posting.
