The Deming Headlight Newspaper reported that the British Veteran Who Taught Machine Gunnery at Camp Cody is going to Camp Hancock, Georgia. Before the Captain’s departure he was the guest of honor at a banquet given by the officers of the 125th, 126th and 127th machine gun battalions in which Captain Moore was the instructor.
Captain Moore has worked hard for several months to train the men of the 34th Sandstorm division for the strenuous work of machine gunners. The Camp Cody soldiers will have to perform as soon as they reach the front. Captain Moore’s machine gun companies are acknowledged to be among the best trained troops in the entire division.
Major S. B. Philpot acted as toastmaster and wished health to “The Best British Officer We Ever Knew”. The Camp Cody men who trained with Captain Moore were sad to see him leave.
Captain R. B. Pike and Captain A. G. Post of the 127th machine gun battalion were on the committee making the arrangements for the banquet.
