Vera Lynn was born Vera Margaret Welch on March 20, 1917 in London, England. Singing from an early age, Dame Vera recorded her first solo album at the age of 19, and by her mid-twenties had become the "the [Allied] Forces' Sweetheart" through her radio broadcast, Sincerely Yours, in which she performed songs and sent messages of hope to the British soldiers serving abroad. In 1942, Lynn recorded a song written by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles entitled "We'll Meet Again," and went on to star in the lead role of a movie by the same name a year later. With its message of hope and loving reunion, the song became an instant favorite for soldiers leaving their loved ones behind, as well as those sending their fathers, brothers and sons off to war, uncertain if they'd make it back alive. Considered one of the most beloved songs of the World War II era, "We'll Meet Again" has since been covered by a range of artists from the Byrds to Barry Manilow, and was put to brilliant, ironic use during the final scene of Stanley Kubrick's satiric masterpiece Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb. As for Vera Lynn, she has gone on to enjoy a most impressive career, and was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire in 1975. In September 2009 she became the oldest living artist (at the age 92) to have a #1 album on the UK album chart, with her collection We'll Meet Again: the Very Best of Vera Lynn.
