It seems that Captain Tom's card from the Queen was hand delivered by HM Lord Lieutenant of Bedfordshire, and looks to have included a personal message from the Queen:

Among the thousands of birthday greetings was a personalised card from the Queen.

"I am so pleased to know that you are celebrating your one hundredth birthday," she wrote.

"I was also most interested to hear of your recent fundraising efforts for NHS Charities Together at this difficult time.

"I send my congratulations and best wishes to you on such a special occasion. Elizabeth R."
