RIP. She had quite an innings. Glad she got some new recognition in recent years. Always will be remembered.

Don’t bother the man. He’s busy doing the arrangement for the funeral service.

I honestly thought she had died about 15 years ago. Excellent innings there, Vera.

My first thought too. I searched my library earlier for some Vera Lynn and that was the only song that came up.

The usual piece from The Guardians Luke Turner more concerned with having a dig about Britain than Vera.

It was obviously a secret message requesting the USA to become involved in the war :roll:

Nah they did that article as well. He's right though. England is the country version of the TV channel Dave

Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?
Remember how she said that
We would meet again
Some sunny day?
Vera, Vera
What has become of you
Does anybody else in here
Feel the way I do?


So apparently Roger, they do!
