His progress through the ranks can be determined from the London Gazette by searching on Ivor-Moore, as can his WWI MC citation:

London Gazette Issue 30513 published on the 5 February 1918. Page 7631/2

2nd Lt. Thomas Ivor Moore, Worc. Reg. For conspicuous gallantry and devotion to duty when in command of machine guns. Being Held up during his advance by a hostile machine gun, he organised a bombing party, with which he successfully outflanked and destroyed the enemy gun and its team. His conduct set a splendid example of courage determination.

My query on this MIC is on the entries which seem to read 'ineligible for GSM & Cl ??????' and 'ine GS Medal & clasp WAZN 1919-1921';

from the data on the MIC can anyone suggest which were the campaigns he was declared ineligible to receive the GSM for, and whether he ever did receive a GSM.

Plenty about him on the net.

1941 General Staff Officer 1

1941 Brigadier General Staff ?

1941 - 1942Commanding Officer 21st Army Tank Brigade, North Africa

1942 - 1944Commanding Officer 21st Tank Brigade, North Africa (Left on 8 Jan 44)

Agree, declared ineligible for the "Army and RAF General Service Medal" (1918-62) with clasp IRAQ (but his name appears to have benn included in the nominal roll forwarded by his CO) but received Indian General Service Medal (1908-35) with clasps "Waziristan 1919-21" and "Waziristan 1921-24" whilst serving with the 10th Armoured Car Company.
