A World War II-era plane has flown over the funeral service of Captain Tom Moore, in honour of the veteran who single-handedly raised millions of pounds for Britain’s health workers by walking laps in his backyard.

Soldiers performed ceremonial duties at the service for the 100-year-old, whose charity walk inspired the nation and raised almost 33 million pounds ($46 million dollars).

Captain Tom, as he became known, died February 2, 2021 after testing positive for COVID-19.

Just eight members of the veteran’s immediately family attended Saturday’s private service, but soldiers carried his coffin to a crematorium and formed a ceremonial guard.
