Moore-Jones, Horace Millichamp, 1867?-1922 :[Fragment of a postcard from Horace Moore-Jones. ca 1915]
A trimmed photograph of Horace Moore-Jones, dressed in military uniform. He holds a pointer towards a framed picture on the wall, possibly of Gallipoli. He has drawn in ink over the photograph a small sketch of himself from the back, and inscribed 'As known on Gallipoli!' Below he has written 'Just out of hospital - and better fed. Sapper H Moore-Jones, NZE. 4/26A. On the reverse, an inscription in blue biro: 'Sometime 1917/18 I should think. This was given to your dad, Allan, by Sapper Moore-Jones himself, at New Plymouth - during an exhibition of his paintings of the Gallipoli campaign World War I. I think he painted the famous "Sapper [i.e. Simpson] + his donkey" - a tribute to the Red Cross workers. Actually the man who "modelled" for that picture lives (or did live) in Henderson here - he became partially blind as the result of service.'
