At the Music Hall: There’ll Always Be an England, 1939

The Union Jack
The Royal Collection
This rousing British patriotic song was written and composed in 1939 by Ross Parker. During World War II, it became extremely popular with a version sung by Vera Lynn dominating the airwaves. During the first year of World War I, over two hundred thousand copies of the sheet music were sold.

The song has remained popular, being covered by many artists, notably even The Sex Pistols. However, I prefer Vera Lynn’s version. Enjoy!
