RIP Vera Lynn.

From the BBC News website:

Quote

Dame Vera Lynn, the Forces' Sweetheart whose songs helped raise morale in World War Two, has died aged 103.

The singer's family confirmed she died on Thursday morning surrounded by her close relatives.

"The family are deeply saddened to announce the passing of one of Britain's best-loved entertainers at the age of 103," a statement said.

Dame Vera was best known for performing for the troops during WW2 in countries including India and Egypt.

I have to admit that until today I wasn't 100% sure Vera Lynn was a real person, they don't teach us much about other countries participation in WWII in American schools. "Vera" is one of my favorite songs on "The Wall" album by Pink Floyd and I'll appreciate it a little more now knowing that Vera Lynn was a real person.
