    Captain Tom Moore gets Royal Mail birthday postmark

    Royal Mail will stamp all letters with the message to celebrate Captain Tom Moore's 100th birthday on Thursday.
    All stamped post up until Friday will be marked with: "Happy 100th Birthday Captain Thomas Moore NHS fundraising hero 30th April 2020."

    Royal Mail said it was "honoured" to issue the postmark.

    World War Two veteran Capt Tom, from Marston Moretaine in Bedfordshire, has extended his challenge to 200 laps after he completed the first 100 laps 14 days ahead of schedule.

    His initial 1,000 fundraising target was broken in about 24 hours and he has now raised more than 29m for the NHS.

    CAPTAIN Tom Moore will be honoured with an RAF flypast, as well as receiving a personalised telegram from the Queen to mark his 100th birthday.

    Captain Tom Moore has been promoted to Honorary Colonel by the Queen to mark his 100th birthday today after the World War II veteran captured the hearts of the nation by raising 29 million for the NHS by doing laps of his garden.

    The promotion comes alongside a personal letter from Her Majesty and the new Colonel has also been re-presented with his Second World War Defence Medal ahead of next week's VE Day celebrations.

    Hohn
    today to get a knighthood would be an insult.
    I would refuse one.
    Knightoods are only for tax dodging celebs.
    NOT Real Men.
    He is better off with his new award.
    Cheers #

    Honorary Colonel Tom Moore.

    Mr Moore was promoted to Honorary Colonel, given the Freedom of the City of London, won a Pride of Britain Award and the cricket fan was also made an honorary member of the England cricket team.

    He even became the oldest person to ever get a number one single after joining forces with West End star Michael Ball and the NHS Voices of Care Choir for a cover of the 1945 Rodgers and Hammerstein song - You'll Never Walk Alone.

    But his latest achievement may just top all that as it has been announced that he will receive a knighthood after being specially nominated by the Prime Minister Boris Johnson.
