Captain Tom’s 100th Birthday Walk for the NHS
We were delighted to support Captain Tom Moore through his fundraising page to assist his amazing effort at the age of 99!!
So get behind Tom as he does 10 laps a day!
Tom was born and brought up in Keighley, Yorkshire. He went to Keighley Grammar School and later completed an apprenticeship as a Civil Engineer. Tom went onto being enlisted in 8 DWR (145 RAC) at the beginning of the war, and in 1940 was selected for Officer training. He was later posted to 9DWR in India, and served and fought on the Arakan, went to Regiment to Sumatra after the Japanese surrender and returned to be Instructor at Armoured Fighting Vehicle School in Bovington.
