Vera Lynn Will Be Remembered

Unless you are British or closely acquainted with Pink Floyd's
The Wall
, chances are you have never heard of singer Vera Lynn.
(The legendary rock band titled a song on that album after her,
which contains the line "Does anybody here remember Vera Lynn?")
Well, the lady who 70 years ago recorded "We'll Meet Again",
a wartime anthem dedicated to British soldiers then away on the battlefield, has now, at age 92, the no.1 album in her homeland: We'll Meet Again -- The Very Best of Vera Lynn. How 'bout that?
