VE Day Celebrations
With today’s problems, people are celebrating in a quiet way. How about playing some wartime songs to get you in the mood for celebrating this momentous event.
Do you know what your parents’ favourite wartime song was? If you do, why not add the title in a comment and maybe the link to a recording on You Tube.
My mum and dad loved the song ‘Yours’ by Vera Lynn.
They also loved an earlier song called ‘A street in Old Seville’.
You can read about my mum’s experiences from 1918 to 2002 in her autobiography ‘The Road from Wigan Pier’. Her experiences were sometimes heart-rending but sometimes hilarious.
