"Keep smiling through, just like you always do" by 

  • “Keep smiling through,
    Just like you always do
    Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away”
    *from lyrics We’ll meet again Vera Lynn
    The lady with the victory rolls was for me a symbol of hope and freedom after the WOII during the remembrance celebration at Yorkshire War Weekend Pickering 2008.

A capture of a fellow Redbubbler Buttonpresser fits so well to the theme, here it is!
