See if you can get hold of a copy of "the Noble 24th" by Norman Holme. It contains quite a long paragraph relating to Sgt Joseph Jesse Moore. The 2197 was his 25 Bde number (when he served with the 1/24th), and the 1109 was his SWB number, when the 2nd Warwickshires changed their title to SWB.

The internet provides the answer with the minimum of effort. Why do not come to the museum and do the research yourself - that's what we are there for.
