Vera Lynn, 1917 – 2020

Dame Vera Lynn died yesterday at the age of 103. The singer, actress, and radio personality is best known for her 1939 recording of “We’ll Meet Again,” written by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles, a signature song of Britain in World War II. Not a bad anthem for the pandemic crisis quarantine, either.
