Photo about Norman Alexander
Norman Alexander Victor Moore
Norman was born at Mole Creek, Deloraine, Tasmania, in December 1899.
Living at Omega, he worked as a labourer.
Norman was the younger brother of Edmon Alfred Moore and cousin to Thomas Matthew Moore.
Norman first joined in November 1915, aged 15. This was a few months after the death of his brother Edmon at Gallipoli, and cousin Thomas in training.
One would have to question whether Norman was in the right state of mind when he first enlisted, as not long after joining he deserted.
He enlisted again in April 1916, under the assumed name of Robert Moore.
Norman was eventually charged with desertion and sentenced to 10 years penal servitude. The sentence was suspended.
Norman died at Minnamurra in May 1978, aged 78.
