The Luton News , 16th December 1915


Driver Amos Charles Moody, 2720, 3/2nd Field Company, East Anglian Royal Engineers, died in the early hours of Saturday, December 10th, 1915, after being ill for two or three days with pleurisy and double pneumonia.

Before he enlisted on July 24th, 1915, he was a postman attached to the Luton Post Office, to which he came about three years earlier from Marlow, Bucks. His home was at Marlow and he had been a telegraph messenger there prior to his appointment at Luton. An ardent footballer, he was quartered at 11 Edward Street, Luton, and was 20 years of age.

His body was taken to Marlow on the Monday after his death, accompanied from Edward Street by a large escort of Engineers. At the Post Office in Cheapside, Postmaster Mr D. A. Brown and about 30 postmen joined the procession and followed the hearse to the outskirts of the town.

The funeral took place on December 15th at Marlow Cemetery. Engineers from Luton and Maidenhead and representatives of the Luton postal staff were represented.
