Who was Captain Tom Moore?

Thomas Moore (real name: Captain Sir Thomas Moore, more popularly known as Captain Tom) was famous for being a British officer, best known as a World War Two and NHS hero.

He was born on April 30, 1920, in Keighley, West Yorkshire.

The former soldier inspired the nation during the first Covid lockdown last year as his campaign to raise £1,000 for the NHS by completing 100 laps of his garden raked in more than £33 million.

He was knighted by the Queen in July – a day he described as one of the proudest of his life.

Captain Tom had suffered symptoms of pneumonia for several weeks, meaning he was unable to receive a Covid vaccine.

He was admitted to hospital after testing positive for coronavirus.

His family was allowed to be by his bedside last night in his final hours and announced his death this afternoon.

He completed an apprenticeship as a civil engineer before joining the 8th Battalion Duke of Wellington’s Regiment, part of the Royal Armoured Corps, and fought in the 1942-3 Arakan campaign in WW2.

In 1940 he was selected for officer training and was posted in the 9 DWR in India.

He returned to the UK to train tank crews at Bovington, Wiltshire, and continued his hobby as a motocross rider.

Captain Tom had lived with daughter Hannah Ingram-Moore and her family in Bedfordshire since the death of his wife, Pamela, in 2006.

After the war, he returned to civilian life and married Pamela who was 15 years his junior.

Who are Captain Tom Moore’s wives?

Captain Tom Moore was married twice in his lifetime when he was alive. The names of his wives were Billie Moore and Pamela Moore.

At age 29, Moore had his first marriage in 1949 to a woman who was known as “Billie”. 

The marriage was never consummated and was subsequently annulled.

At age 48, the officer had his second marriage in January 1968. He married his second wife whose name is Pamela.

Moore and Pamela had a wide age gap. She was fifteen years his junior. 

Pam and Moore were married for over three decades until 2006 when she died.

When Moore was working at Cawoods and then March Concrete, the family lived in Welney in Norfolk. The couple retired to the Costa del Sol, Spain, but returned when Pamela developed a form of dementia. She spent her last years in a nursing home, where Moore would visit her every day.
