Battery Sgt. Major  J.G. Moore


I cannot get a BSM JG Moore, but there are a lot of Moores on the records. He is recorded as Superintendent Moore of Burma Police

1875 Born. (I think he may well be older as men of this age usually wanted to appear younger)


1921 May 19. Joined ADRIC with service no. No. 1986 . Posted to "R" Company. Before joining the Auxiliary Division he had served as a Superintendent in the Burma Police.

1921 Jul 4. He was in patrol which was attacked at the corner of Lower Dominick St and Parnell St. While they were waiting for reinforcements they put their backs against a wall and missiles were thrown at them. Awarded £500 compensation.

1921 Jul 4 to 28 Jul Admitted to King George V Hospital "injured"

1921 Jul 30 to 29 Aug Medical Leave

1922 Jan 16. Discharged on demobilisation of ADRIC

1922 Jan 28 Awarded £500 for wounds in Jul 1921




From the age, this cannot be our man, but he was born Burma (though other sources say India, but his sister born in Burma). He was Son of W. Greville and Mary Beatrice Moore, of Morton Cottage, Tenby, Pembrokeshire. My hypothesis would be that our J G Moore and W Greville Moore were related.
