We'll Meet Again

I paid a visit to Wollaton Park today as it was hosting the Veteran's Weekend. A yearly event to remember all those fallen souls who fought for peace and freedom.

There were a lot of things going off, battle re-enactments, military vehicle displays, a parachute drop and music. Among the musical offerings were a couple dressed up as wartime entertainers, singing songs of the period.

Johnny Victory and Frances Belle were quite entertaining with their renditions of songs from the 1940s. Their RAF uniforms look quite authentic with their ENSA (Entertainments National Service Association) badges. Some well known people were members of ENSA. They included Joyce Grenfell, Wilfrid Brambell and George Formby.

Here's a shot of Frances singing along to another well known wartime hit. Should you want to learn more about the group that she is in, here's their website link.
