Listening to this selection of songs is to take a journey through time. 'The White Cliffs of Dover' and 'We'll Meet Again' became two of the many evergreens made popular by young British singer Vera Lynn during the dark days of the Second World War. In 1941 she achieved her big break on the BBC reading messages from wives and girlfriends to servicemen overseas on the popular radio show 'Sincerely Yours', featuring 'Yours' as her theme tune. This established her as a top-of-the-bill personality with nationwide popularity as the Forces' Sweetheart. In 1975, she received a fitting tribute when named Dame of the British Empire. This 3-CD set charts a remarkable career that continues to shine and garner wide interest today.
