When World War II started, Captain Tom was enlisted in the eighth battalion of the Duke of Wellington’s Regiment (8DWR).

He was stationed in Cornwall but was then transferred to serve in Burma and India as an officer.

After returning to the UK he went to work as an instructor at the Armoured Fighting Vehicle School in Dorset.

Tom then met his wife Pamela and moved to Welney in Norfolk where the couple had their two daughters, Hannah and Lucy.

Captain Tom has since been made an honorary colonel on the occasion of turning 100.

He first launched a fundraising page with a modest target of £1000, but his heartwarming story quickly spread beyond his local community and donations beginning to flood in from people across the country.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge even donated an undisclosed amount to the cause.
