Parish Magazine Reports

Vol 23, No 5, May 1918 - Mrs Moore, of Aldington, has heard that her son, Sergt W Moore, DCM, is wounded and a prisoner. The information was conveyed in a letter from the Chaplain, who adds: “As far as I can make out, his wound was not too serious …. We shall greatly miss him as he was a great soldier and did excellent work with the Battalion.” Nothing further has been heard of Sergt Moore, probably owing to the fact that he is wounded.

Vol 23, No 6, June 1918 - We are very sorry to learn that Sergt W Moore (brother of Pte A E Moore), DCM, who was reported wounded and a prisoner, has now been posted as missing from some date “between Mar 23rd and 28th”. We trust that reassuring news of him may soon be received.

Vol 23, No 7, July 1918 - A postcard has been received from Sergt W Moore, DCM, dated May 25, stating that he is a prisoner in Germany and unwounded.
