Hans Garrett Moore
Birth: Mar. 31, 1834
Death: Oct. 7, 1889

Ninth Cape Frontier War Victoria Cross Medal Recipient. He served as a Major in the 88th Regiment, Connaught Rangers. During actions against the Gaikas at Komgha, South Africa, on December 29, 1877, Major Moore saw that a Private of the Frontier Mounted Police was unable to mount his horse and was surrounded by the enemy. Major Moore rode back alone in the midst of the enemy and made efforts to save the man's life until he was killed and himself wounded. For gallantry in the face of the enemy, he was awarded the Victoria Cross Medal and later achieved the rank of Colonel. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
