We were heartbroken to hear of the death of Dame Vera Lynn last week - an icon who brought hope to millions of people in a dark age.

The forces' sweetheart passed away at home in East Sussex on June 18 aged 103.

We couldn't let an edition of Looking Back go by without our very own tribute to the late singer, who performed a concert at Came Park, Dorchester, on Sunday, August 15, 1982 as part of Dorset's Great Falklands Day.

Also performing were The Yetties and Gus Honeybun.

The event had the full military involvement of all three services and had on offer 1,000 free pints for members of the services.

Also featuring were side shows, a barbecue, barrel racing, an auction, the sea cadets, a raffle, a fair, a cocktail party, beer tents, a tug of war, a mini market and 50 British Legion standard bearers. There was also a church service with the Last Post.

When Vera Lynn finished performed she was transported away in a Chinook helicopter. Crowds waved at Vera as she departed Came Park.

Among the songs she performed for the audience in Dorchester was I Love This Land.

Thanks to Kelvin Bird for sharing his photos and programme with us from this memorable day. If you have any memories of Dame Vera that you'd like to share, do get in touch with me the usual way.
