REMEMBERING CHILDHOOD DAYS,
This review is from: Very Best Of Vera Lynn (Audio CD)
I am so pleased that this music is being redone, I was not born when the war was on, but was born in 1947 the baby boom year.
I can always remember the Sunday Mornings, my mother prepairing the lunch time dinner always Beef roasts and yorkshire pudding with lovely creamed rice pudding, and hearing on the radio Home and Away, this was the type of music that was played at the time, every one used to have this one and all the neighbours were cooking roast dinners, the smell on a sunday was absolutly fantastic, an experiance that you do not have this day.So this brings back lots of memories.
As for the war being over and that it should not be kept being brought up, why not? how many of our kin were killed in the war, why should we not want to remember, in years to come the young men of this centery who are still at war, and many who have given their lives for us, should they be forgotten for what they did,Ido not think so, they will be rememberd for years,also the wars.

Great review - what you recall is exactly how I remember Sundays.
I was born after the war, but had some of these songs on 78 rpm records - they were brilliant (and that comes from a Pink Floyd, Led Zep fan).

Roast beef? You were lucky. I am an eskimo and all we ever had for OUR sunday dinner was whale. I used to say to mum - what is it this week? Fish maybe, or a nice bit of seal for a change? Some polar bear steak? What are we having? Every week, all she ever said was 'whale meat again...'.

Your review made me cry. I have the same memories and when I read your review I could smell the dinner cooking and taste the rice pudding. Jean Metcalf and Cliff Mitchelmore on Two Way Family Favourites. I was always fascinated by "BFPO". I could see it all and I was a child again. I shall buy this record not only for the memories it brings back but also for the tragedy of men who are still loosing their lives in another man's war

An excellent review and it brought back good memories of a much better era with less money but simple pleasures when everybody had more respect for each other and children obeyed adults without question - especially teachers! Those Sunday roast smells will always be a treasured memory. Summermoonstone - BFPO and Two Way Family Favourites - oh sigh....
