Awards to Lt.H.Moore - Military Cross Recipient

British War and Victory Medals (LIEUT. H. MOORE). Naming is officially impressed. Very crisp detail, extremely fine. Accompanied by original named medal cartons (flat) and copies of entries in Gallantry Awards, Army Officers Lists and London Gazette. Footnote: T./2nd Lieutenant Henry Moore was a junior officer serving with a 'Kitchener' Battalion of the Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Regiment, the Sherwood Foresters. He not only received his WWI pair but was also a recipient of the Military Cross (not included with this pair), awarded for his actions at the Battle of Arras (Vimy Ridge, British). "For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty. He led his platoon to its obejective with the greatest disregard for danger, and having reached it, held on with only two men and repulsed a counter-attack. Although wounded he remained at his post for three days, holding an important tactical point, and by his efforts ensuring the successful consolidation of that part of the line. He has continually volunteered for any dangerous work, thereby obtaining a great hold upon his men." (London Gazette, 8377, 16 August 1917). Of the fifty men making up the platoon, only three survived to reach the objective and beat off the German counter-attack. (BGR266)
