Bert Ambrose was one of England’s top bandleaders from 1927-1950. Among the major talents he led were Ted Heath, Lew Stone, pianist George Shearing, trumpeter Eddie Calvert and vocalist Vera Lynn. When it came time for Vera to pursue a solo Carter in 1940, Anne Shelton succeeded her in the Ambrose Band. The Ambrose Orchestra was very popular during the period January 1940 to October 1952, thanks mainly to the vocals provided by Anne Shelton. No more “Swing Is In The Air”, the Ambrose Band had become Glenn Millerish , especially in its sax section which was often clarinet-led. Glenn Miller, with whose American Band of the AEF, Anne performed several times, described her as “the little girl who sings in G flat”. And she was a little girl, a pretty London school girl with blond hair and blue eyes. She was twelve years old when she started recording with Ambrose on June 7th 1940 and she never had a singing lesson in her life, just encouragement from her mother, and yet she became one of Britain’s most popular singers during and well after the war.
