VERA LYNN Remembers The Songs That Won World War II
Celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May 2020 with this nostalgic CD and sing along to such classic songs as: The White Cliffs of Dover, Yours, There’ll Always Be an England, Lilli Marlene and We’ll Meet Again.
Vera Lynn is forever remembered as the singer who became the “forces sweetheart” during the difficult days of the Second World War. In 1941, during the darkest days of the conflict, she began her own radio programme, Sincerely Yours, sending messages to British troops serving abroad. She and her quartet performed songs most requested by the soldiers. Vera also visited hospitals to interview new mothers and send personal messages to their husbands overseas.
During the war years she also joined ENSA and toured Egypt, India and Burma, giving outdoor concerts for the troops. In March 1944 she went to Shamshernagar airfield in Bengal to entertain the troops before the Battle of Kohima. Her host and lifelong friend Captain Bernard Holden recalled “her courage and her contribution to morale”, and it’s for these qualities that Dame Vera Lynn will always have a place in our hearts.
