          DAME VERA LYNN    D.B.E.  LLD,  M.Mus

 

   

Dame Vera Lynn is one of our most revered recording artists. Dubbed 'The Forces' Sweetheart' because

of her tireless work entertaining the troops during the Second World War, she has come to symbolise many

of the values the country fought to maintain in that conflict. Her recordings of songs such as 'We'll Meet Again'

and 'The White Cliffs of Dover' have become icons of the war era and of Britain's doughty resistance of the Nazi threat.

She was appointed a Dame Commander of the British Empire in 1975.

Now in her nineties, Dame Vera is still active in charity work. She lives in East Sussex.
