Remarkable lady, and still playing with a full deck, where's our modern day Vera?

Thanks Bill. I had difficulty opening the video link from the Worthing Herald site, and when I did, Dame Vera's message was missing from the end of the song.

It's intact here though.

Happy Birthday Dame Vera Lynn!

As others have said we need more like her in these troubled times to keep our spirits up.

I think you will find plenty of well-known musicians are doing online performances. And I spotted one Italian pop star who has been leading interactive online singalongs, not sure if anyone is doing that here.
