During COVID 19, the late Queen Elizabeth the Second, ended a televised speech in April 2020, with a poignant line from Dame Vera Lynn’s war time song to the forces, “We’ll meet again”. Dame Vera was 103 at the time of the speech. This week, the phrase was used again throughout the media to send the Monarch off on her final journey.
Dame Vera Lynn, died aged 103 in June 2020. Here is vintage footage during the Second World War (1943) singing to the troops.
