    I could not truly be considered an evacuee because I left Guernsey with my Grandmother at the age of 18 months, after several stops, including Coventry, we ended up in Halifax, Yorkshire and I particularly remember one schoolboy friend Ken, we both attended St. Augustines Primary School and an ex pat Pierre, a genuine Guernsey boy who also was in our class. With no more knowledge than this, I don’t except to catch up with them, although it would be terribly exciting if I did… there was also a Yorkshire girl in my class, a then Jean Taylor and I misser her terribly when I returned with my family to Guernsey in July 1945. Jean-Yvonne Collins, then, now Egger and after 42 years in Australia, residing with my Swiss husband in St. Gallen.

      Hello Jean thank you very much for taking the time to share your family experience on my blog. I do hope that someone from Halifax will read this and perhaps recognise
      some of the names you mention. It might be worthwhile sending an email to the Halifax Courier newspaper: Perhaps one of the people you knew will contact you? Gill
