Remember how she said
That we would meet again
Some sunny day

A fan named Derry Davis expressed the importance of Vera Lynn to the band and wrote:
“More info about Vera, she was from England and sang a song called “We’ll Meet Again” that was popular during World War II. That is where the line comes from in the Pink Floyd song ‘Vera’. The war is a key element in the first part of ‘The Wall’.“
