A NEW BOOK ON SECOND WORLD WAR EVACUATION IN BRITAIN
I do not interview Guernsey evacuees only. I spent most of 2013 gathering evacuation stories from all over Britain - and beyond - for a new book on the varied experiences of Second World War evacuees. It will contain extracts from the personal stories of 100 evacuees - not only from children but also from the evacuated mothers and teachers who accompanied them - who spent the war years in England, Ireland, Scotland or Wales.
I have also interviewed children and adults who found refuge on the British mainland from places such as the Channel Islands and Gibraltar, the Ukraine, France and Belgium.
Each story is accompanied by a wartime photograph, many of which have been rescued from evacuees’ attics.
