      Anon 10:54pm - Daily Mail says Capt Moore hadn't been seen in public since pre-Christmas 'bucket list' break he & his family took to Barbados.

      "Captain Tom had been on a dream holiday to Barbados on December 11 after British Airways offered him free flights to the Caribbean." Looks like that might have been a well intentioned mistake.

      Incredible comment - you make it sound like the country repaid his amazing generosity by deliberately making sure he got Covid!

      He was nearly 101, he was admitted to hospital with pneumonia.

      Why don't people just mourn his passing and celebrate a life well- lived by a man with an inbuilt sense of service and incredible generosity of spirit? Why does it have to be someone's fault?
