Constable James MOFFATT

Exposure

Sydney

8 October, 1864

 

Constable Moffatt of the Murray Police Patrol died at the Sydney Infirmary from “rheumatism caused by exposure“. This was the cumulative effect of many cold and wet nights spent camping in the bush while carrying out his police duties.

 

 

The constable was born in 1837 and joined the New South Wales Police Force on 22 July, 1862. At the time of his death he was stationed in the Murray District (Albury).
