Vera Lynn - The Forces’ Sweetheart - born 1917 in London.

Dame Vera Lynn was considered one of the major entertainers during World War II, and was nicknamed "The Forces' Sweetheart". She is known by many seniors around the world for her popular songs during the War - among them "We'll Meet Again" and "The White Cliffs of Dover", which was performed at numerous outdoor concerts for soldiers. The nostalgic lyrics ("We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when, but I know we'll meet again some sunny day") had a great appeal to the many people separated from loved ones during the war, and it became one of the symbolic songs of the wartime period. Vera Lynn visited Denmark several times after the War.
