Looking for Evacuees

evacuation-posterEvening all!

So it’s the end of another week and now it’s time for three days off from the day job leaving me open for more researching (and a family birthday/anniversary celebration in-between!)

During the Second World War thousands of young children and mothers were evacuated to the safety of Wales from areas of England that were considered at high risk of attacks by the enemy. Many were sent from Liverpool and London, arriving bewildered in a place unfamiliar to them. Their experiences of being an evacuee varied hugely some were miserable living with strangers who spoke an unknown language separated from their loved ones whereas others thrived in their new countryside homes.

For my research,  I am looking for anyone who was an evacuee in West Wales during the Second World War, I’d really like to hear about your experiences and memories of your time in Wales, the journey here, how your time was spent in Wales and anything else you’d like to share. Please comment on this post or use the contact page to send me an email.

I look forward to hearing from you and hearing your stories and memories of being an evacuee in Wales.

Enjoy your weekend!
