Spitfire flypast tribute at Vera Lynn's funeral procession with the "We'll meet again" song playing. Nice voice, a good match for that song.

Well ... John and I both did some back-tracking on YouTube and finally located it back in 2012 ... originally put up for Armistice Day that year. Enjoy ... ?

Another 'more modern' lament that is finding increased favour as one for civilian funerals - (and now also being proposed as Scotlands' official National Anthem to replace the somewhat biased "Flower of Scotland" Rugby team song) - is "Highland Cathedral". Surprisingly, this melody was written by two German in the 1980's as a theme for a Highland gathering there.

This one will mess with some of your hearing aids but I love it. Sabaton "Soldier of 3 Wars" about Lauri Törni. A true warrior right to the end.

Short bio here although a little Googling will give lots more detail about his exploits https://military.wikia.org/wiki/Lauri_T%C3%B6rni


And the thrash music https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XBfeA6wnbT8
