Hyde man Killed in Action:
An Old St. Thomas Scholar

During the last few days news has been received by Mrs Moores, of Travis Street, Hyde, that her son, Private Fred Moores, of the 3rd Battalion Cheshire Regiment, has been killed in action. He was very well known as an old scholar of St Thomas' Day School. He first joined the Territorials, and later enlisted in the Cheshire Regiment. He had been home but a few weeks when the war was declared, and he was called to the colours. After a short stay in Scotland, the regiment was drafted to the front. He was killed on March 4th, it was a sad coincidence that the same day he wrote home saying he was in the best of health. He was 18 years of age on the eighteenth day of last august.
