Dame Vera Lynn (1917-2020).

For those that don't know, she was a legendary singer-songwriter often dubbed "The Forces' Sweetheart" because of her concerts for the troops during WWII. Everyone and their mother in my country will recognise her singing "We'll Meet Again" even if they don't know exactly who she is.
