We'll Meet Again

Dame Vera Lynn singing in 1941

Don't miss out on the national sing-a-long at 9pm on VE Day

Alison Bunn is the Royal British Legion Area manager for Greater Manchester.

The Legion have a host of activities planned for the day - but as Alison tells Tameside Radio’s Scott Bruton below - two are absolutely key which will essentially start and end the day.

The first is the two minute Remembrance at 11am and people are asked to come to their doors and observe the silence in memory of all those who gave their lives in the Second World War.

Then at 9pm everyone is invited to a national sing-a-long to Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’ - made famous by Forces' sweatheart Dame Vera Lynn and probably no song right now could be more appropriate.

If you’d like to get some practice in before the national sing-along - here are the lyrics to help you.

 

We’ll meet again

Don’t know where

Don’t know when

But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

Keep smiling through

Just like you always do

‘Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say hello

To the folks that I know

Tell them I won’t be long

They’ll be happy to know

That as you saw me go

I was singing this song

We’ll meet again

Don’t know where

Don’t know when

But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

We’ll meet again

Don’t know where

Don’t know when

But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

Keep smiling through

Just like you always do

‘Til the blue skies

Drive the dark…
