A 350 feet high projection has been beamed onto the White Cliffs of Dover to mark the 100th birthday of Dame Vera Lynn today.
The image of the singer was commissioned to mark Dame Vera's special birthday on the 20th March, and the release of her new album, Vera Lynn 100, which features re-orchestrated versions of her most popular songs alongside her original vocals.
The singer, who lives in the Sussex Downs, has become a national icon since entertaining the troops during World War Two, and boosting the morale of the nation - with musical hits including 'The White Cliffs of Dover' and 'We'll Meet Again'.
