'''Dame Vera Lynn''', [[KnightFever DBE]], born in 1917, was, quite simply, the original, iconic British GlamorousWartimeSinger. Known as "The Forces' Sweetheart", she hosted a radio programme, ''Sincerely Yours'', during WorldWarII, and songs like "There'll Always Be An England", "We'll Meet Again", and "The White Cliffs of Dover" still evoke TheHomeFront all over the world. Her hopeful, yearning ballads perfectly captured the spirit of the boys overseas, and she became a symbol of what those lonely men in the trenches were fighting for.

She is also familiar to many rock fans from Music/PinkFloyd's classic RockOpera, ''Music/TheWall'', with the song "Vera" "Anybody here remember Vera Lynn?..."[[note]]and the line "what has become of you?" well, it turns out Vera was still a recording artist at that time (she retired five years after ''Music/TheWall'' was released) and in 2009, four years after Pink Floyd's very last gasp at Live 8, a compilation album made her the oldest living artist ever to chart at #1: she outlasted Pink Floyd and might possibly be remembered when they are forgotten[[/note]]

* TearJerker - Most of her songs, 'We'll Meet Again' most of all, especially when shown with a slideshow of WWI & II photographs.
