VERA LYNN
Sincerely Yours

Anthems and hits from the stunning career of 'The Forces' Sweetheart', including several not heard before on CD. 'We'll Meet Again' and 'The White Cliffs of Dover' are essential recordings here, but tracks such as 'My Prayer' prove Vera Lynn was a great singer as well as a much-loved British entertainer and tracks such as 'Beginning to see the light' remind us of her popularity in Europe in the 1950s.
