Wasn't he also promoted to Colonel a few weeks ago, on his birthday, maybe?

Yes BUT it was an Honorary Ranking only therefore he will be Captain Sir Tom Moore from now on. The wonder of British etiquette !!

Speaking of honours, entitlements etc, I didn’t realise Phil Vickery was appointed a Deputy Lieutenant of Gloucestershire in 2015.

Good going, fella.
Hopefully, this text should be smaller and less prominent than the words above it...

+1.
Not OTT in the least compared to some who are "honoured".

Legacy, John Drinkwater

When twice a hundred years have gone
Across my Cotswold eaves,
And still the woods of Sapperton
Make summer of green leaves,
Come then and sing what song you will,
You lovers of new time,
But sometimes on my Cotswold hill
Renew my Cotswold rhyme.

Make me a temple on this ground
Not built of mortal stone,
But sprung from unforgotten sound
Of song my blood has known,
So shall my tale not be of dust
Chilled in a common urn,
While proudly through your younger lust
My testament shall burn.

Yes maybe. But then what about all the other deserving causes across the country whom have gone beyond the extra mile during this crisis ??

Sir Mute MBE ?? ;)

From talking to a lot of guys who work for the NHS my conclusion is they dont want a medal or badge. they have been touched by the Thursday night clapping when its socially distanced. They want a pay rise, we all do but maybe they deserve it more than most.the perks they can get from businesses like free coffee or even staff discounts are greatly appreciated even if many dont take advantage and still pay full price its the thought that counts. Most want their colleagues from overseas to be treated exactly the same as colleagues born in the UK they are one team. To be honest when all this is over what most NHS workers want is for people to remember that they did their best to do their job. to treat all those they could.that the government needs to have plans and equipment ready for another outbreak and invest in actual production of this equipment in the UK so we dont rely solely on imported goods. So medals no lessons learned from this yes
