The Forces' Favourites


2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. Dutifully Memory Lane recognises three of the greatest wartime stars - Vera Lynn, Glenn Miller and The Andrews Sisters - whose incomparable talents boosted the spirits of our boys on the front-line and stirred the hearts of millions at home.

Dame Vera Lynn undoubtedly deserves the accolade: 'national treasure'. The warmth of her voice became a beacon of hope for many during the bleakest of days and has since become synonymous with the spirit of wartime Britain. Vera's greatest recordings from 1939-1959 have been carefully restored and digitally re-mastered to ensure that distinctive, endearing voice rings clearer than ever before.

Even today, in the 21st century, the "Glenn Miller Sound" remains unique, distinctive and memorable. Harmonious, melodic, warm and comforting, no other sound is a more evocative reminder of the big band era and the war years. Glenn Miller and his orchestra are entirely deserving of the accolade "the most popular big band of all time" and here is a unique selection of their biggest and best recordings.

The unforgettable Andrews Sisters: three girls who could harmonise the telephone book if asked and fairly bubbled with personality during the most difficult of times. Here are the all-girl singing trio at their career-topping best in a memory-packed selection of their biggest hits and best known tracks. Perfect harmony indeed!
