Does anyone know how shade tolerant this rose is? Thank-you.

I've seen Moonlight growing in southern England grown in part shade doing very well in both June and August.

It is susceptible to powdery mildew in the shade positions

I'm afraid many of the photos here do NOT show Pemberton's "Moonlight" - which is (as far as I know) not pink (not even soft) and only semi-double.

I agree. Likewise, many of the photos do not show the purple tinged foliage with silver reverse that is characteristic of Pemberton's 'Moonlight'.

For me, the main identifying characteristic of 'Moonlight' has been the "dark claret red" of the wood, as mentioned in the 1914 reference.
