It is with great sadness that we received the news of Dame Vera's death earlier today.
Dame Vera Lynn DBE LLD M. Mus had been a supporter and Patron of the Medway Queen Preservation Society for many years. She supported the society, kept up with developments through our members' newsletter, Full Ahead, and was always prepared to chat when our team met her at various events.
It is short notice but we are told there will be a BBC tribute to Dame Vera at 7.30 this evening.
We extend our sympathy and condolences to Dame Vera's family at this sad time.
