Lieutenant Moore extricated himself, but he would almost certainly have lost his life had not another lieutenant (John Grant Malcolmson) fought his way to his dismounted comrade and carried him to safety. In this battle Lieutenant Moore also charged an infantry square of 500 Persians at the head of his regiment and jumped his horse over the enemy"s bayonets.
He died 8 Waterloo Place, Dublin, 25 April 1913 and is buried in Mount Jerome Cemetery.
