Sir Thomas Cecil Russell Moore, 1st Baronet CBE (16 September 1886 – 9 April 1971) was a long-serving Scottish Unionist Party politician. He was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayr Burghs in a 1925 by-election, and served until his retirement in 1964, when he was succeeded by George Younger. Moore was created a Baronet, of Kyleburn in the County of Ayr, in 1956.[1] He died in April 1971, aged 84, when the baronetcy became extinct. In the mid 1930s Moore, a Colonel in the British Army, wrote widely in the UK press in support of Adolf Hitler and the policies of Nazism.[2]
