A student at the University of British Columbia, Guy Borthwick Moore was on the school's rugby team and a member of the Vancouver Rowing Club. In 1916, he joined the Irish Fusiliers of Canada but transferred to the Royal Flying Corps and went to England for training in January 1917. After receiving his pilot's certificate in August of that year, he was assigned to 1 Squadron in France where he flew Nieuport scouts and the S.E.5a. Moore was killed in action when his aircraft took a direct hit from an anti-aircraft shell and exploded 2000 feet above Hollebeke.
