Subject: RE: Help: WWII & Brit'Cat Musical Quesions
My Dad was in the RAF during the war and he always said that Anne Shelton was the RAF's sweetheart and Vera Lynn came second, but that the army preferred her. My Mum and Dad were courting then and because of the blackout, they had to whistle "Roll out the Barrel" at their meeting place so they could recognise each other in the dark! That of course became "their" song
