At Bullecourt on the 12 May 1917, Moon led an attack on an enemy strongpoint but was soon wounded. Not giving up, and continually calling, “come on boys”, he was badly wounded twice more but still stayed to lead, inspire, and encourage his men. “We would have followed him anywhere, he was that game”, said one. Only when he was wounded for a fourth time, severely now, did he finally agree to retire and seek medical help.
