For a change a bit of good news about a famous - among Commonwealth nations any way - performer. Dame Vera Lynn - known as the "forces' sweetheart" in WW2 - celebrated her 100th birthday yesterday 20th March. http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-39326024 Possibly, most famous for her versions of "(There'll Be Bluebirds Over) The White Cliffs Of Dover" & "We'll Meet Again". The end credits of Dr Strangelove featured "We'll Meet Again".
She appears to be very healthy and spoke to her students at her old Primary School via Skype and gave a radio interview to the BBC.
