    From the BBC:

    Dame Vera Lynn, the Forces' Sweetheart whose songs helped raise morale in World War Two, has died aged 103.

    The singer was best known for performing hits such as We'll Meet Again to troops on the front line in countries including India and Egypt.

    Her family said they were "deeply saddened to announce the passing of one of Britain's best-loved entertainers".

    In a statement, they confirmed she died on Thursday morning surrounded by her close relatives.
    Information on a memorial will be announced at a later date.

    As great as she was for British troops during WW2 (including my Dad and many relatives) she was the original one hit wonder.

    Dear Vera...darling of the troops xoxox

    She did so much to inspire and give hope in World War 2...
    I have played her music for many years to the seniors I have worked with...and everyone loves a sing along.

    Her music brings tears to my eyes....for all those that suffered in war.

    An icon that lived forever and I was shocked to hear of her death....silly considering how old she was.

    A true Angel and will be forever loved by the Thousands/ Millions she inspired.
