My loved one who gave all. God grant you and your comrades peace. Wife Eileen and Robert.

Additional information:
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.
