The SSAFA Victory 75 We'll Meet Again Commemorative Album
SSAFA, the Armed Forces charity is excited to offer you the opportunity to purchase Victory75: We’ll Meet Again – a 140 page, full-colour commemorative album chronicling Britain’s road from defeat to victory in a conflict which threatened the future of freedom in this country.
Topping the bill of writers is Dame Vera Lynn, whose songs spoke of love, sadness and hope, chiming with millions on both the home and battlefronts. “We’ll Meet Again” became an anthem of the war years, and has become so again in the current national emergency with Dame Vera and Katherine Jenkins recently taking it to the top of the charts – helped in no small way by Her Majesty the Queen invoking its spirit and meaning in her address to the Nation in the national emergency.
Reflecting on all the sailors, soldiers and airmen Dame Vera saw leaving for war she writes “in my heart I still sing for them”. Victory75: We’ll Meet Again also features an article by Prime Minister Boris Johnson who writes that “at the stroke of 11am on 8 May 1945 church bells rang out across Britain… our debt to those who were present at that moment – surely the greatest generation of Britons who ever lived – can be simply expressed. “Without their valour and sacrifice, all that is good and right would have perished from the earth”.
