RIP Ms Lynn

Hard think of many - if any - modern-day singers who could command such universal affection.

103 years and immortalised in a Robyn Hitchcock song, to boot.

A full life indeed

She was born in the same town as me - East Ham, Essex (now London)

Oldest person to chart UK album top 30. Sweetheart of the Armed Forces. RIP

Almost relocated there myself, but you couldn't move for blue heritage plaques

RIP

But out of curiosity, what happened to the 102 previous Vera Lynn's?
