Very sad. Another 'old school' member leaves us that showed enormous courage, discipline and thought for others. R.I.P. Dame Vera.

She gave great comfort to so many in the 1940's and afterwards. RIP, Dame Vera.

At the time I didn't go much on her ; I was more into Glen Miller and Tommy Dorsey records. But she did a great job for the lads in the armed forces and was a greatly loved lass. RIP Dame Vera.
