Article published 8th October 1917 in the Nottingham Evening Post :- LIEUT. H. S. MOORE. “The Rev. John Moore, Home Mission secretary of the United Methodist Church, recently of Coppice-road, Nottingham, has received information of the death in action of his only son, Second Lieut. Hugh Stirling Moore, Leicestershire Regiment. Lieut. Moore was educated at the Nottingham High School and Ashville College, Harrogate, and afterwards entered the legal profession, becoming a solicitor with Messrs. Hind and Godfrey, Long-row, Nottingham. He was 23 or 24 years of age, and joined the Public Schools Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers in December 1914. He was afterwards sent to train with a cadet corps at Oxford, and received a commission in the Leicestershire Regiment. An officer writes: “We were repulsing a very heavy attack. He died almost as soon as he was hit, at which time he was leading his men forward in a most gallant manner. There was no one in the battalion for whom we had a higher regard, and I cannot express how greatly we feel the loss.” Article courtesy of Jim Grundy and his facebook pages Small Town Great War Hucknall 1914-1918
