Here’s Dame Vera Lynn performing aboard the QE2, in the English Channel, commemorating the 40th anniversary of Operation Overlord. What a different time. What a different world.
The Forces Sweetheart made it well into the twenty-first century, dying at the age of 103, on June 18, 2020.
But here she is, herself at the age of 77 (the anniversary we commemorate this year), still cutting a rug and captivating hearts. What a girl!
