Vera Lynn (born 1917) was one of the superstars of entertainment during the War years and became known as 'The Forces' Sweetheart'.
She released a number of very popular songs during the War years.
These included 'White Cliffs of Dover' and 'We'll meet again'.
She also presented her own radio programme called 'Sincerely Yours' in which she read out messages from those separated by the conflict.
She also won affection by showing herself ready to travel overseas to entertain the forces, including the long and difficult journey to Burma.
In 1969 she was awarded the OBE. In 1975 she was made a Dame of the British Empire.
