The white chalk cliffs of Dover, in East Sussex, lay on the principal RAF flight route across the English Channel during the war.

The cliffs were imortalised in the song The White Cliffs of Dover by Vera Lynn, the wartime English singer known as “The Forces Sweetheart”.

Vera Lynn has recently had an astonishing comeback with this album.
