After CNAC, Jim was with some Levanese partners and built a hotel in Beirut. It was called the "Commodore Hotel" and sported a fancy night club called "The Casba(?)" I remember when they dug the first hole to start the building in early 1955. Jim later had a falling out with his partners; sold out and returned to Bankok. There he spent the rest of his life.

I found in the Eagle Squadron records of the RAF a listing for Richard A. Moore in the 71st Eagle Squadron made up of American pilots. There was a notation next to his name "POW." He was the only Richard Moore listed in any of the Eagle Squadrons.
or would like to be added to the CNAC e-mail distribution list,
please let the CNAC Web Editor, Tom Moore, know.
