British singer Vera Lynn, RIP


This is a video of British singer Vera Lynn singing We’ll Meet Again.

Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:

British singer Vera Lynn has died at the age of 103, reports British public broadcaster BBC. …

The song We’ll meet again, which she recorded in 1942, was seen as a boost for the many lovers who were separated by the war. The song helped the soldiers express and share their experiences, their fears and their sorrows, she later said, “A lot of these boys never told anything about the war.”

Ms Lynn supported the World War II fight against nazi Germany. However, later she opposed the Afghan war of United States President George W Bush, British Blairite Prime Minister Tony Blair and later Conservative Prime Ministers.

A side of Vera Lynn not mentioned in either the BBC or the NOS reports.
