The West Country wishes Colonel Tom Moore Happy 100th Birthday during the Covid-19 crisis

Captain Tom Moore, the World War II veteran who has raised millions for the NHS, has turned 100 today, 30 April 2020.

The Queen has made him an honorary colonel and the West Country, with the rest of Britain, is wishing him a happy birthday.

People living in the West Country are among more than 100,000 people who have sent cards to the veteran fundraiser. There are so many they've filled an entire school in his home in Bedfordshire, closed of course, because of the coronavirus pandemic.
