Moore, John Benn (Jack) (1893–1954)

Mr. John Benn (Jack) Moore, of Grassmere, Bollon, Q., who died in Toowoomba on 19th March after a short illness, was a member of a well-known and respected pastoral family of south-west Queensland. Born in 1893 at Bugilbone Station, Walgett, N.S.W., he was the second son of the late J. C. Moore, of Mitchell, Q., and was educated at the Southport school. He enlisted early in the First World War and served overseas with the Artillery Division of the A.I.F. in France until the end of the war. Some years after his return to Australia, he formed, with other members of his family, the partnership of J. C. Moore and Sons, a company with interests in the grazing industry.

Mr. Moore was an able sportsman when young and was keenly interested in and gave very practical support to all sporting activities in his district in later years. He will be much missed for his kindly help and friendly nature by his wide circle of friends. He married in 1926 Maida, a daughter of Dr. and Mrs. J. R. Nicoll, of Toowoomba, and she, with their sons Bruce and Charles, survive him.
