Dame Vera Margaret Lynn CH DBE OStJ (née Welch; born 20 March 1917), widely known as "The Forces' Sweetheart", is a British singer, songwriter, and actress whose musical recordings and performances were enormously popular during The Second World War.

During The War, she toured Egypt, India, and Burma as part of ENSA, giving outdoor concerts for the troops. The songs most associated with her are "We'll Meet Again", "The White Cliffs of Dover", "A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square" and "There'll Always Be an England".

Her last single, "I Love This Land", was released to mark the end of The Falklands War. In 2009, at age 92, she became the oldest living artist to make it to No. 1 on The UK Albums Chart.
