Does anyone here remember Vera Lynn? Remember how she said that we would meet again one sunny day. Vera, Vera, what has become of you? Does anyone else in here feel the way I do?

Rest in peace.

Britain without its aging Hero's is becoming ever more Alone and Sader - one would hope for a new Hero... to instill enthusiasm throughout the Country - but where is that person ?

That's where I learned about her. Yet tnere's still the uninitiated dum-dums who think 'Pink Floyd' is just about the so-called 'drug culture'.

RIP Dame. You're meeting again with some of the war dead you sang to.
