Tuesday March 20th 1917 ~ Wednesday March 20th 2019 is one hundred and two years by my arithmetic.

'Her' singing is indelibly etched into my WWII, childhood memories.

Let's hear a resounding cheer ~ from 'ALL HANDS' ~ so that 'she' can clearly hear {in her quiet little, East Sussex village of Ditchling} how much 'she' is loved the world over.

Who are we talking about? You are either too young or too inappreciative of real music if you are not aware that LV is 55 and 'VL' is the one and ONLY Vera Lynn.

(Applause)(Applause)(Applause)

Great memories of Vera, Graham, particularly in wartime, thanks for posting.
One other beautiful lady has a birthday on that day, however, my Sylvia is a little younger having been born in the middle of the 1947 great snowstorm in Yorkshire - 30 years to the day apart.

Cheers,

Taff

Hi Taff I am still laughing at your funny story. That's 6 degrees of separation I believe. Your Sylvia is one astute lady. Cheers Vicki_

Glad I'm not alone in my love for this lovely lady ~ thanks for your 'confirmation' gentlemen!

A very happy forthcoming 72nd to {Still} Young Sylvia on her and VL's 'shared day'. Give her an additional 'smacker' on the day, Taff and when she says "What's THAT for"? Tell her it's from the 'Smith Collins' clan, one time all Suvenners now part second generation Yorkshire in the lovely, small, North Yorkshire village of Thorganby.

Have a great weekend 'wherever ye may be'.

G'day from Oz, Graham,

The old... sorry - Sylvia said to thank you for your kind words and to give you a big kiss from her. Tough titties mate, I don't kiss blokes, but thanks for your thoughts anyway. 💋 (How the hell did that get there? Where is she??)

Cheers,

Taff

My pleasure, Nick and pleased to hear it's yours too. The 'countdown' has begun, less than 48 hours to VL Day with VE Day following in less than 2 months. Somehow I feel the two are synonymous.

I still get tears in my eyes when i hear her sing White Cliffs of Dover. She could have but never left the country during the war.
