'On the morning 1st October, 1917, near ZONNEBEKE the enemy opened a heavy artillery fire on our front line trenches. By the bursting of a shell one man was hurled over the parapet in front of the trench. Without delay Private MOORE jumped over the top and in broad daylight despite the heavy machine gun fire succeeded in dressing the wounded man and carrying him back into the trench and finally to the R.A.P. through a shell swept area.'
