Family of Captain Sir Tom visit new birthday card display in his honour

The family of Captain Sir Tom Moore have visited an exhibition of some of his birthday cards at IMW Duxford.

It took 150 volunteers two and a half weeks to open all of Captain Sir Tom Moore's birthday cards.

There were more than 200,000 of them - and Bedford's school hall was filled to the brim by the time it came to his 100th birthday at the end of April.

100 were then chosen at random to be put on display at the Imperial War Museum in Duxford in Cambridgeshire - where Captain Tom is an honorary patron.

And today his family went to see it for the first time.

The family's visit was particularly poignant as it was also Georgia's birthday -  Captain Tom's granddaughter. 

The museum also has a permanent exhibition about the Burma campaign - in which Captain Tom fought. It's called The Forgotten War, and it shows what it was like to fight in the jungles of the Far East.

A reminder of an important piece of history, and it's now on show alongside a more recent moment in time, in which this remarkable man yet again stepped up and served his country.
