Vera Lynn, born Vera Margaret Welch, is a British singer whose career flourished during World War II, when she was nicknamed "The Forces' Sweetheart".
She is best known for the popular songs "We'll Meet Again", written by Ross Parker and Hughie Charles, and "The White Cliffs of Dover".
In 1940, one year after the beginning of World War II, Vera Lynn began her own radio programme, Sincerely Yours, sending messages to British troops serving abroad. She and her quartet would perform songs most requested by the soldiers. Lynn also visited hospitals to interview new mothers and send personal messages to their husbands overseas. During the war years she would tour Egypt, India and Burma, giving outdoor concerts for the troops.
Vera Lynn's Auf Wiederseh'n Sweetheart became the first record by a British performer to top the charts in the United States, doing so for nine weeks.She also appeared regularly for a time on Tallulah Bankhead's U.S. radio programme, The Big Show. "Auf Wiedersehen, Sweetheart", along with "The Homing Waltz" and "Forget-Me-Not", gave Lynn a remarkable three entries on the first UK Singles Chart.
