I'm very sure that she does have many admirers too, Connie. And no wonder. She has such a beautiful singing voice, just like Karen Carpenter did. It's always a joy to listen to such voices as theirs.. :)

Yes, it's her. She still sang beautifully when she was in Vancouver. I'm sure she still has many admierers, especially among the veterans.

Are you perhaps referring to Dame Vera Lynn who sang that song, Connie ? My uncle wrote a letter to her only just recently and received a quick reply from her. Her letter was very kind and it made my uncle's day receiving that too... :)

He was also a poet, writer and an artist. His best friend died in his arms in Flanders, and that's why he wrote the poem...in his friend's memory. We had to memorize his poem at school; it was not difficult. It's considered the most significant and beautiful poem of war time. A beautiful song of WWll is "The White Cliffs of Dover". For the moment, I have forgotten her name. Anyways, I was fortunate to hear her sing many years ago in North Vancouver. I was going to post a photo for the American Veterans Days...also today, but left it up to you to post. Where is it? ;-)

Lt. Col McRae, a medical doctor, wrote this poem in 1915. He died pf pneumonia in 1918 in France while in command of a military hospital unit for Canadian soldiers.
