Re: National Archieve researchers

Thank you gibbo for the time & effort you've put in to assist me. I've been in contact with Robert Bickers, who gave me most of the info I have on William, including the reference to his will. The reason I wish to obtain the will is because he said that William's main beneficiary was his mother,who was living in NSW. To best of my research his mother, Emma Louisa Moore,was still living in Hull at that time,1925. Unfortunately Robert couldn't find his copy of the will.
Here is the info he sent me:-

1905 William joined the Shanghai Military Police, from the Navy

1907 Promoted to Sergeant

1913 William married Esther Hawthorne Morton on 5th. February at the
Shanghai British Consulate [see attachment ]

1913 On 17th December a son, Walter Whiting Moore, was born (
presumably in Shanghai but I haven't any documents )

1916 A son, Alfred Coughlan Moore, was born (no details as to where )

1921 William promoted to Sub Inspector

1924 Promoted to Inspector.

1925 William died.

My further research found this:-

Walter Whiting Moore married Edna M. Durham in 4th quarter of 1939 in Middlesex

A daughter, Eileen Edna Moore was born 17th. December 1941
Don't know the exact details of this, but Walter apparently just
walked out on his wife and daughter and no one knows anything about
him after that.

Alfred Coughlan Moore was killed in the second world war. He was a pilot.

24 July 1942

Soon after 1730 hours, Hurricanes of 80 Squadron provided top cover to
others of 238 on an evening patrol, eight Bf 109s of II./JG 27 being
scrambled to intercept the formation. They bounced the top cover ,
Oblt Sinner shooting down Sgt Moore, one of the 92 Squadron pilots
attached to 80, the latter baling out, badly wounded, over Deir el
Rakhil. He died of his wounds on 26th.

And this:-

MOORE, ALFRED COGHLAN

Rank:
Sergeant
Trade:
Pilot
Service No:
1384277
Date of Death:
27/07/1942
Age:
26
Regiment/Service:
Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve

92 Sqdn.
Grave Reference
2. F. 6.
Cemetery
HELIOPOLIS WAR CEMETERY
Additional Information:
Son of Chief Inspector Christopher William (of Shanghai Municipal
Police) and Esther H. Moore, of Shanghai

Regards, Tom

Re: National Archieve researchers

Hi Tom,

Thanks for the extra information. I'll see if i can find anything on his mother, Emma Louisa Moore here in Australia around that time. Did Emma eventually come to Australia at some stage and if so do you have a death date for her? Also if she did come to Australia who did she come with? Some other names might help find her.

Can you confirm this is Emma's NSW death index please?

Re: National Archieve researchers

Tom i have found a newspapers article in The Times concerning Walter Whiting Moore, he was aged 25 in 1939 so age fits your Walter. I have saved the article so if you would like a copy of it just private message me your email and i'll send it to you.

Hi gibbo,
As far as my records show, my Emma L never went to Australia; in fact her husband, James, also died in 1925 & she followed in 1928, both in Hull. I have their positive death certificates,showing they were both living with their son (my father) at the time of death.

Best regards, Tom
