Vera Lynn - 100th Birthday Celebration Thimble

£7.95
To celebrate the 100th birthday of Dame Vera Lynn, her image was projected on to the iconic white cliffs in Kent, on Monday 20 March, the day she officially became a centenarian. The 350ft image of Dame Vera, who is affectionately known as The Forces' Sweetheart, was also in celebration of the release of her new album, Vera Lynn 100. One of her more well-known songs is White Cliffs, released in 1942 as a tribute to the forces leaving to fight in WWII. The cliffs were the last thing they saw before heading off to war and for those fortunate enough to return, the first thing they saw upon returning home. The music release will feature new re-orchestrated versions of her most beloved music alongside her original vocals and it is thought the record will make her the first singer to have released a new album as a centenarian. The album also features a previously unreleased version of Sailing - a surprise find as it was not widely known she had recorded the track.
