Dame Vera Lynn, the Forces' Sweetheart, in uniform in 1941

Dame Vera Lynn was the British songstress who kept Britain’s spirits alive during the worst early days of the Second World War,  when the soldiers were going off to war and their families and sweethearts were left behind.

She has died at age 103, and deserves a special place of honor, which she has in the hearts and minds of Britain. Here’s her most famous song, although there were many, including “the White Cliffs of Dover”. This was filmed in 1943.  Makes me cry every time.

Thank you for this.

My nieces sang this song at my father’s memorial service… it was one of his favorites.
