A very enjoyable hour spent watching a lovely down to earth woman recounting her life and career....her brother seems a treasure as well....Smile

Some of the so called stars of today would do well to take a leaf out of her book

Thanks for that link Becky. I'd forgotten this was on. Been very fortunate to have met Dame Vera a number of times through involvement with a local (veterans') event with which she used to be involved. Such a lovely lady.

I briefly saw Vera at a book signing some years ago.
