Captain Tom Moore, the 100-year old veteran who raised over £30M for the NHS has today been knighted by Her Majesty the Queen in a private ceremony at Windsor Castle.

Other investitures due to be held at Buckingham Palace were postponed for June and July but an exception was made for Sir Tom.

Her Majesty has been residing at Windsor Castle throughout the COVID19 pandemic and the stage was set today for Captain Tom, also made an Honorary Colonel by the Queen earlier in the year.

The Queen spent around five minutes chatting to Sir Tom and personally thanked him saying, “Thank you so much, an amazing amount of money you raised.”

Congratulations from us all at Pathfinder International magazine Sir Tom.
