Welcome to Christmas V-Discs - A selection from 1944 - 1947

Covid 19 has made difficult times for us all. Isolation from our family, sons, daughters, grandchildren & friends. Loneliness and separation have separated from those people and activities we love most.

How much more so for those of the armed forces separated for years and not months?

V-Discs was a means of connecting forces overseas, particularly those in the Far East with their familes and friends at 'home'

Christmas was a special time for that remembrance and its no surprise that the jazz groups tried to make it special.  Here is a selection from those years which you can play directly or download.
