Some more Music of WWII-Glen Miller style.

On the 72nd anniversary of his disapperance

History of Sorts

It wasn’t all death and destruction during WWII. Music did play an important role to boost the morale of the troops but also of the citizens in the war torn countries.When ever(how little that was) they would hear some music it would lift their spirits and gave them some strength to carry on.

This is dedicated to the music of Glen Miller, a mystery himself.

Miller spent the last night before his disappearance at Milton Ernest Hall, near Bedford. On December 15, 1944, Miller was to fly from the United Kingdom to Paris, France, to make arrangements to move his entire band there in the near future. His plane, a single-engined UC-64 Norseman, USAAF serial 44-70285, departed from RAF Twinwood Farm in Clapham, on the outskirts of Bedford and disappeared while flying over the English Channel.
