Happy Birthday Dame Vera
Dame Vera Lynn turns 100 on Monday and today has released an album of a selection of songs some remixed with new duets. Born in East Ham she already has the record (at age 92) of being the oldest person to have a number hit and could beat that - she is the oldest living person to release a record. Worth buying for your mum, nan etc for Mothers Day or to listen to her version of Bubbles with the full lyrics we don't sing ... definitely worth a listen.

Happy Birthday Dame Vera

Watched the tribute, a typically excellent BBC documentary, if only our current players had half her tenacity and determination.

Same here in early January at Manor Park. I thought they'd got the music wrong as the coffin came into the Crem to a ragtime blues version of Bubbles when I specifically asked for Dame Vera's.

As they placed his coffin on the stand though they faded that version and Dame Vera's version started. I looked at that big old box (he was a lump, my old man) with 'DAD' in claret and blue carnations on top, knowing he was going to his maker in his West Ham shirt. Well, it's hard to describe but I'm sure you know how it felt.

Sometimes you wish you could convey what West Ham means to those overpaid show ponies during their Saturday afternoon kickabout. They just don't seem to get it, do they?

Has that been labelled a racist oppressive, establishment -driven, non-inclusive propaganda exercise yet?
