While on the subject of lesser known celebs Ralph Edwards is almost 92 years old.

 

Pioneer in the reality show area, that's enough to want him dead. <_<

IYG, I realise that this site is 'Anglo Centric', but I don't think that Vera Lynn is lesser known. In fact to many Britons of a certain vintage she is almost an icon.

 

Never heard of Ralph Edwards though.

Well, usually when a British celeb is mentionede here I just look them up, learn about them and shut my trap because I know absolutely nothing on them.

 

I still think she is a rather obscure person. :referee:

Again, that rather depends on where you live and how long you lived. My guesstimate is that most Europeans exceeding 40 remember Vera Lynn.

 

I doubt we'll ever meet her, though. :lol:

I'm surprised, I always thought the Dutch only knew soccer personalities. :lol:

just found this website and I have to say you are rather an unbalanced sick lot. the key to life is to be kind and caring but perhaps you need some psychiatric input. glad I'm normal.

Dame Vera's Deathlist thread is result number one (out of 19800) on the Blueyonder search, which is how our friend came to revive a six-month-old thread I suppose. Personally I don't think any of us are particularly "unbalanced" or in need of psychiatric help, but what do I know?

If you count artistic death I don't think her career has ever recovered from the execrable Dame Vera Lynn in Nashville around the late seventies.

You're taking the piss. I only wish I was.

 

Mercifully long deleted and unavailable anywhere at the moment.

If I'm not mistaken, Vera Lynn appeared at last year's VE ceremonies. Has her health declined since then?

Tried to recommend that we commemorate the 60th anniversary by throwing Vera over the White Cliffs of Dover...

 

Her war effort, or noise pollution, drove up volunteering for the forces by making the front seem less scary than musical halls at home.

This is an even better site:

 

I particularly like the 6th Panzergrenadier Division version:

Imagine all those panzers revving up on the other side of the channel, armed with their Marlene Dietrich 88s. While all we had was Vera and popgun lyrics like this:

 

"The shepherd will tend his sheep,

The valley will bloom again

And Jimmy will go to sleep,

In his own little room again."

Interesting discussion.

 

From experience, I can tell you that this sort of thread arguement will actually make people think that you are both arseholes. :D
