Dame Vera Lynn turned 92 in August 2009 and
to her own and everyone’s
amazement, a re-release on CD of recordings
she made 70 years
ago recently reached number 1 on the British
music charts, bumping
off the Beatles newest remastered CD box set.
Dame Vera was a
WWII singer whose sentimental, heartfelt
and ‘soldier-on’ songs were
favorites of British and Commonwealth
armed forces. During
the war she toured and entertained in many
countries where British troups
served. She was also highly regarded by Canadian
servicemen.
Many of them returned from overseas newlywed to
English girls.
The Vera Lynn songs and records were especially
meaningful to them. They
later comprised most of the audiences at
Dame Vera’s Canadian concerts.
They were hugely popular, as were her
record albums.

My father, who served as a gunner on Lancaster
bombers during WWII, bought the Vera Lynn LPs in the 1960s, and I
listened to them and learned all of the words to all of her songs
when I was in my early teens. Back in the early1980s she came to
Toronto and I took my parents to see her sing at the CNE Grandstand
Show. She still had an amazing voice; was - and still is - an
inspiration.
