Reginald Henry Hamilton Moore was a captain in the 1st Border Regiment. He was killed on the 11 June 1915, just thirty years of age. On that day the Turks had succeeded in occupying part of the trench held by Captain Moore's company and were now attacking the Borders with bombs, making the position extremely diffcult to retain. Captain Moore rushed down the trench, followed by his men, and succeeded in clearing part of the trench practically unaided, but was shot dead while giving directions about strengthening the position.

Captain Moore, mentioned in despatches for the action, was originally buried in Gully Cemetery and today is buried in Twelve Tree Copse Cemetery.
