MOORE, WILLIAM J. L.
Date of Death:
The Royal Welch Fusiliers 6th Bn.
I. E. 04.
My loved one who gave all. God grant you and your comrades peace. Wife Eileen and Robert.
Son of James and Charlotte Moore; husband of Eileen Minnie Moore.
Initially buried at the village of Oerle.
William Moore was my father’s cousin – son of his Aunt Charlotte – same age as my father. My father’s war diary notes on 25 October 1944 (he was serving in the army in Egypt at the time) “Letter from home – my cousin Will Moore has been killed in action in France. He leaves a wife and young child and so the slaughter goes on, a terrible waste” Obviously my father did not know where he had been killed and assumed it was France. I’m afraid that I know little more about him or his wife or child.
