Vera Lynn sang for the British and Allied forces all over the world on many occasions during the Second World War. She had her own radio show in which she sang songs requested by British soldiers serving abroad and messages from their families were broadcast.
Other popular Vera Lynn hits of the (pre charts) war years were The White Cliffs Of Dover, Yours and You're In My Arms. In the 50's she scored hits with Forget Me Not, Auf Wiedersehn, Homing Waltz and My Son My Son (a U.K. #1). Her last U.K. hit from the era was Travelling Home in 1957.
