Lance Corporal
9th Bn Sherwood Foresters (Notts & Derby Regiment)
Thomas Moore enlisted at Nottingham and entered theatre of war (France) on 21 January 1915, joining the 1st Battalion Sherwood Foresters. The war diary mentioned a draft of 50 other ranks under Lt Shawcross, arriving on 22nd January which would tie in with Thomas's entry. At some point he was posted to 9th Battalion and was on the Somme with them in September 1916 when he was killed. On 21 September the war diary noted - 'Improvement of weather and although the trenches were drier, they were still full of sticky, clinging mud. Constance trench was still getting a fair amount of attention from the enemy artillery.' During this period Thomas killed and probably buried nearby in the Nab Junction Cemetery, Ovillers. After the armistice his remains were reinterred in Pozieres British Cemetery, Ovillers-La-Boiselle, grave IV. E. 23 John Morse
