We’ll Meet Again ~ Dame Vera Lynn dies aged 103

and there’ll be bluebirds over the white cliffs of Dover

During WWII the Germans had the overtly sexual Marlene Dietrich singing Lili Marlene, which was the unofficial anthem of the Afrika Korps.  We had the wholesome Forces Sweetheart, Vera Lynn.  Kind of says a lot about out differing national characteristics.

Dame Vera Lynn is now 103, and she is still almost as big an inspiration to Englishmen of a certain age as is the Queen.

Dame Vera Lynn, the Forces Sweetheart has died aged 103.  She will be much mourned.

Please listen with respect
