Pte Stanley Frederick Mooring, 9271, 2nd East Yorkshire Regiment, was killed in action at Neuve Chapelle on March 17th, 1915. He was in his last year as a soldier and had spent the previous three years in India, where he was awarded good conduct stripes and a medal.

His mother, Mrs L. T. Channing, of 30 Pondwicks Road, Luton, had last seen her son in December, 1914, when on short leave. She said the climate of India had not done his physique any good.

"Kaffir" Mooring, as he was known to his chums, was an old boy of Queen Square School, Luton. He was considered a good hockey and football player who had also won several prizes in regimental shooting competitions.
