Captain Sir Tom Moore said it is “truly a great honour” to be made honorary colonel of an Army training college as he visited the military establishment as part of his new role.
The 100-year-old Second World War veteran told junior soldiers to take full advantage of the “outstanding” Army Foundation College in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, as he was shown around the facility on Monday.
During his visit to the college on Monday, he said he was “absolutely speechless” to be made honorary colonel.
