    What a great man and a gentleman to boot. He was one of the old school and todays generation would do well to follow his example. May I suggest that his local hospital be re-named the Captain Sir Tom Moore Hospital.

    Phil I looked up your cv and see you have something to do with the Vindi association . I live in a retirement village and one who I have a tipple with is a Terry Rumens an ex Vindi boy going back to 1946 so will give you an idea of his age. His very first merchant ship was the Fort Chesterfield , Don’t know if you keep an old boys book or whatever but would be Intersting to know. He spent the war years in Australia as a refugee, but returned at the end of. Later returning to live in Australia where he spent his youth. JS

    The funeral of Captain Sir Tom Moore will be held on Saturday,
    in what the family, who are based in Bedfordshire, said would
    be a 'small' service as they asked the public to stay at home.

    I can understand the family only wanting a 'small' service and wanting the public to stay at home. Last week his daughter was interviewed on TV , poor girl was nearly in tears as they have been receiving posts on social /anti social media of an insulting nature.

    That sort of thing will always occur sadly.
    There will be those out there who will say he was a war criminal as he served in the war, some very sick people out there.
    The same people will see a two bit footballer as a hero yet attempt to criminalize someone who gave them the freedom they have today.

    Apparently, Captain Sir Tom Moore asked to have
    'I told you I was old' engraved on his headstone
    in tribute to a joke by Spike Milligan, his favourite
    comic growing up.
