Forces’ Sweetheart Dame Vera Lynn has been honoured as the Oldie Of The Year at the annual TOOTY awards.The centenarian was awarded the top prize from The Oldie magazine at a lunchtime ceremony aimed at celebrating “the best of the older generation”.Around 150 people turned up, including distinguished contributors such as Maureen Lipman, Sir Peregrine Worsthorne, Richard Wilson, Michael Palin, Beryl Bainbridge and Sir John Mortimer, and raised their glasses to the magazine's unlikely survival.When Ingrams launched The Oldie, he described it as "a crazy idea".The record, which debuted on the UK Albums Chart at number 3, made her the oldest living person to have an album on the charts.
He approached the ebullient publisher Naim Attallah who already backed The Literary Review, then edited by Ingrams' friend and Private Eye colleague, Auberon Waugh. There was a blaze of publicity at the launch, and an initial dramatic sale.
Other winners at the tongue-in-cheek ceremony included Baroness Williams of Crosby and cricket commentator Henry Blofeld.
