RIP Dame Vera Lynn

A truly incredible woman who was so lovingly and fondly known as the forces sweetheart due to her popularity during the Second World War and gave performances for the troops has passed away today at the age of 103 years old.

Her most well known song “We’ll Meet Again” has been so fondly used over the years. Along with “The White Cliffs of Dover” and “There’ll Always Be an England”.

Rest in Peace to this inspirational and amazing woman ❤️

Musical Moments – We’ll Meet Again – Vera Lynn

06EAF403-FBD7-486C-AD88-9CF092D1CFFC

We’ll Meet Again is a song that was first around in World War II and was sung to the troops by Vera Lynn before they left England to fight. The lyrics are truly poignant and powerful, last night The Queen addressed the nation and finished by saying we will meet again and other references to the war were within the speech. So since then I have been thinking about this song especially considering it reminds me of my Nanna who was evacuated during WWII so much so we had it as the final song at her funeral.
