The service number S/5772808 was allocated to the Royal Norfolk Regiment and given that the recipient was awarded the Burma Star, it seems likely he served in the 2nd Battalion, which also fought in France and Belgium in 1940, prior to being evacuated from Dunkirk; in Burma it participated in the battle of Kohima.
Moy subsequently transferred to the Royal Army Service Corps and witnessed active service in Palestine and Korea. He was awarded his L.S. & G.C. Medal in AO 93 of 1957.
