Retro Book Find: Vocal Refrain - An Autobiography by Vera Lynn
Fondly remembered as The Forces Sweetheart for many songs such as We'll Meet Again and The White Cliffs Of Dover, Vera Lynn provided musical inspiration many families and friends in Britain and beyond during the Second World War.
I had the pleasure of meeting Dame Vera at a Dad's Army Appreciation Society event at the Imperial war Museum in London, in 2008.
Vocal Refrain was the title of her autobiography, published in 1975 by WH Allen, a hardback copy of which I recently found in Healthy Planet.
