Many thanks for your beautiful voice. You are blessed by the Lord to keep the memory of Dame Vera Lynn alive.
I was glad to receive your cd in good shape. Although I was born 9 years after the war,
this impressive period has always played an important role in my life.
At highschool already I was very interested in WWII although my young age of 16 years.
Since 1994 I made several battlefield tours to the invasion beaches in Normandy, the Ardennes and more.
You may see pictures and video's I made on my site at: www.saak.nl
God bless you!! Alfred Saak

I was born just after the war but enjoy archeological research

Hello Jill, Just to congratulate you on two fine concerts in Thetford last weekend.
The Sunday afternoon crowd in the square were roasting in the sun but they enjoyed your set.
Those who had tickets for Saturday were very lucky. The whole weekend was good fun.
I didn't remember that it was from your site that I got your CD. but I found your site easily enough.
I'll have to get better 1940's kit if I'm to go to another event you have listed this Summer/Autumn.
I'm looking at ROUGHAM AIRFIELD Bury St Edmunds. Do you think it'll be a good one? Jim

YOUR MESSAGE: Dear Jill
I know it has been a long time coming but I would like to thank you for entertaining us all
at my parents Diamond Wedding Anniversary on the Island.
I have to say your performance was outstanding and what a personable charisma you have,
even the Major plays a jolly good part!
Mum and Dad, Jean and Charlie were over the moon, to see them both that evening was as if the years had drifted away.
Mum had had a stroke 12 months before and I don't think anyone thought they would ever see her dance again.
We play your "Hits of the Blitz" CD regularly in our restaurant, its very popular with all young and old
and receive a mountain of requests to purchase so hope you've had some orders.
Once again Jill our heartfelt thanks for a superb performance and making a celebratory weekend finish with a BANG!!!!!!!
Kind Regards to you and the Major

RE: Flight Lietenant Albert Edward Gregory 90th Birthday
Just to let you know that Albert appreciates very much your good wishes.
We had a great day, someone made a cake with a Blenheim on it and the 219 squadron crest, and through a bit of skulduggery on my behalf I managed to get letters of congratulations sent from the Air Chief Marshall, Mayor of Derby, Lord Tebbitt and Prince Charles.
He’ll have to wait to make it to 100 before he gets one from the Queen!
Theres a pretty good chance of that, he’s still very active, fit and well
Thanks again Nick Gregory

Dear Ms. Daniels,
I just happened upon your website this morning.
I am a United States Sailor and am far from my home and my family,
but your songs bring me so much closer to where I wish I could be.
When I was a kid my grandparents and my parents would sing some of the same songs I heard on your website.
They are such great songs! Thank you for what you do and keep up the great music.

From: Philip L. Griffiths
Chairman Shustoke Parish Hall Committee.
It was Friday 27th October 2006 that you visited us over at Shustoke Parish Hall and entertained us
so wonderfully well that the villagers have not stopped talking about it yet.
On behalf of the Hall Committee and all those attending, may I say a very big thank you for coming and entertaining us,
especially as it was only a few hours before that you had returned from Dar Es Salaam, and were somewhat jet lagged.
We will invite you again to Shustoke I know we will have a sell out event if you agree to return.
Thank you so much for my CD. (04/10/2006)
It brought back many memories. My wife [ she passed away in January 2006 ] would have loved those old songs.
I was in the navy on d-day. "Harbor Lights'really hit me hard, I left my wife on the shore a few times.
Thank you again--Stanley M. Byrne Nottingham, Maryland USA
God Bless you My name is Nabonazar Cogollo, I am a philosopher and reader from the Universidad Nacional de Colombia. And I study anthems and hymns from all countries of the world. Your Rule Britannia´s version made me cry. It´s too beautiful and sollemnous. I think why that marvellous song is not the UK National Anthem?? During an annual celebration of the Colchester Tattoo (1955, prox.) the participant bands of the Royal Navy played a quik version of the Colombian National Anthem, previous auctorization from my government. That was great! and great is the Rule Britannia sang by you. Congrats. May I pay the CD? Thanks
A very big thank you for your contribution to the success of Saturday's '40s Day in Alton.
Everyone agreed that it was much more fun than previous events and I heard lots of compliments about your singing.
The event received coverage on Meridian news bulletins on GMTV this morning and again
on the lunchtime news and the Alton Herald is planning a 2-page spread of photos this week.
Attached is a photo my wife took of you - I'm sure you have plenty already but here is another for your collection!
Thanks again for making it such a lovely day!

Thank you for your wonderful website.
I'm providing the music for a radio play "Ruggles of Red Gap" starring Michael York
to be performed live in front of an audience in Hollywood,
California and recorded for broadcast on XM radio. The director asked me to use "There'll Always Be An England" for certain scenes and musical bridges and I was not familiar with the song. Finding it on your site was a godsend!
Wish you were here in the US so we could work together! Your show sounds wonderful!!
Best wishes! Jay

Many thanks for your wonderful performance yesterday and for the contribution you
made towards the great success of the day. I've heard nothing but praise for your
singing and Celia was sitting next to 2 old ladies who were crying at one stage during
your performance! (....and it wasn't because your singing was bad!) Good luck with your career in the future and we may see you again next year!
