Many happy returns to Colonel Tom Moore!
April 30 was never likely to pass unheeded, but even so, the celebrations for Colonel Tom Moore’s 100th birthday have been something special. In the course of one morning, the former captain was made an honourary colonel by the Army Foundation College Harrogate (with the assent of the Queen), was treated to a military flyover, and saw his fundraiser for NHS charities reach a whopping £30 million. So really, about the fourth-most important thing to happen to him today is a birthday tribute from the Piccadilly Circus billboards.
In all serious, though, it’s another welcome London tribute to the valiant Colonel, adding to the message of congratulations the billboards had previously been displaying. From complete anonymity a month ago, the legend of Colonel Tom Moore has grown exponentially, so in our opinion, no tribute is too small!
