An instructor with the Army Physical Training Staff (APTC), George Moore fenced for the Army Fencing Union and also for Bertrand’s. He won the sabre and foil titles at the 1937 Inter-services Championships, and in 1937 and 1938 was the champion Man at Arms at the Royal Tournament at Olympia. Moore saw service throughout World War II, and after the war served in Singapore as a major quartermaster with the APTC attached to the 1st Singapore Regiment. However, in 1954 he was involved in a scandal with a lance-corporal from the Women’s Royal Army Corps (WRAC), which resulted in a court martial reprimanding Moore and punishing him with the loss of one year’s seniority.
