Captain Sir Tom Moore - 1920-2021

Captain Sir Tom Moore - 1920-2021

Captain Sir Tom Moore dies aged 100 after battle with poor health.

Captain Sir Tom Moore, the NHS fundraiser who inspired a nation, has died in hospital at a grand age of 100. The army veteran had been suffering poor health and was admitted to Bedford Hospital on 31st January 2021.

In a statement, Sir Tom's daughters Hannah Ingram-Moore and Lucy Teixeira said: 'It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear father, Captain Sir Tom Moore. 'We are so grateful that we were with him during the last hours of his life; Hannah, Benjie and Georgia by his bedside and Lucy on FaceTime. We spent hours chatting to him, reminiscing about our childhood and our wonderful mother. We shared laughter and tears together.

'The last year of our father's life was nothing short of remarkable. He was rejuvenated and experienced things he'd only ever dreamed of. 'Whilst he'd been in so many hearts for just a short time, he was an incredible father and grandfather, and he will stay alive in our hearts forever.'

The statement added: 'The care our father received from the NHS and carers over the last few weeks and years of his life has been extraordinary. They have been unfalteringly professional, kind and compassionate and have given us many more years with him than we ever would have imagined. 'Over the past few days our father spoke a great deal about the last 12 months and how proud he felt at being able to leave behind the growing legacy of his Foundation.

'We politely ask for privacy at this time so we can grieve quietly as a family and remember the wonderful 100 years our father had. Thank you.'

Captain Sir Tom Moore - 1920-2021

Sir Tom, who served in WW2, rose to prominence because of his positive attitude and determination to complete a challenge of walking 100 laps around his garden before he turned 100 last April 2020. He initially set out to raise just £1,000 to support the health service but his mission went viral, internationally and praise and donations poured in from all over the world, taking his final total to £32.7 million pounds.

Captain Sir Tom Moore - 1920-2021

In acknowledgement of his great efforts, he was knighted by the Queen during a unique open-air ceremony at Windsor Castle in the summer of 2020. The millions of pounds raised by Sir Tom funded a range of projects including and providing practical and emotional help to NHS staff and volunteers.

We offer our deepest condolences and deepest sympathies. You will be forever in our thoughts and hearts.

Yours Aye - Most used Royal Marines slang.

Royal Marines Slang - Nutty

A little history on Yours Aye and the most used slang and phases that only makes sense to Royal Marines.

While the origins of this phase is traditionally used by the Scots (Scottish) it has also been used by many different sectors of the UK’s Armed Forces. But more widely and broadly used by the Royal Marines and their Officers.

We realise how isolating this period is for many, if you have any suggestions for what you would like to see from us during this time, please contact us and let us know. Your feedback has driven us from the very beginning, and I want to ensure that we’re doing the best job possible for you all.

Thank you, and stay safe.
