Pseudonym: Inghurst, Frederick J.
"Ops" and "PM" appear to be interchangeable.
See 104-10231-10327, below: Inghurst was C/PM in April 1962.
See 104-10312-10183, below: Inghurst was DCOS/OPS in June 1963. Moore/Inghurst appears to have used the alias "Irving Peggins" and may have also used the pseudonym "Charles Matt". He used the name of Gordon Campbell after the real Campbell passed away on Sept 19, 1962.
1960-1962: Grayston Lynch reminisces: "Moore was C/Ops for the Invasion Task Force - as well as Deputy for PM and C/Ops for JMWAVE at one time." "Training: On Panama and the facilities used, the best Lynch could remember, Fort Sherman was open in about August or September 1960 to train Cubans for about a 2 to 3 month period. There were about 40 to 50 men, mostly Artime followers. When it was decided a bigger group would be needed, which later became Brigade 2506, these people were sent to Retalhuleu (Guatemala) In about November 1960. Actually, the group was split, with some going to Guatemala and others to the New Orleans area. As to other training in Panama, Lynch has no knowledge. (Note: Lynch suggested that Mr. Robert Moore, retired staffer currently in the New Orleans area, might be a good source. Moore was C/Ops for the invasion task force, as well Deputy for PM and C/Ops for JMWAVE at one time." Also see Grayston Lynch in his Decision for Disaster (pgs 48-49) mentions Bob Moore, a close friend who had been the CIA's liaison man at Fort Bragg, was the catalyst for Lynch joining the Agency. Lynch was retiring after five years as a capatain of the US Army Special Forces A-Team. In January 1960, Moore had set up a meeting with Desmond Fitzgerald, then head of the Far East Division. Fitzgerald assured Lynch of a job after he retired from the US Army. Lynch dropped in to see Moore in December 1960 to ask if Moore had anything for him. Moore did and the rest is history. Also see 104-10233-10157, p. 3: There are two memos on 5/15/62 and 5/16/62 for "AL AND ROCKY", almost certainly a reference to Al Rodriguez/Earl Williamson and DCOS Rocky Farnsworth.
Shackley testified he had two deputy chiefs of station (DCOS). During the longest period of time - one was Robert Moore, who was C/Ops or chief of operations. The other man was in charge with the support functions - that was Jack Corris.
