Private Moor's family have very kindly loaned various documents and have generously given their permission for these to be uploaded to the Website.

His photograph appears above.

A picture of D Company, 1st Tyneside Scottish, taken on 13th April 1940 at the Burt Terrace Cricket Ground, at the same time as the other pre-BEF photos of the Battalion was included, and this is featured below.

Pte Moor's sister attempted to send him a birthday card to celebrate his turning 21, but fell foul of the Prison Camp regulations as the following images show:-

The Pay Book - Army Book 64 - belonging to Pte Moor appears to have been issued to him as part of his repatriation, perhaps to replace an original, and is therefore largely blank, but it does contain key information about him as can be seen from the following images:-
