We were lucky to have a school trip linked with our English text where we were sent on a steam train to be evacuated.
The fully escorted evacuation experience included a steam train journey to the 'safety of the countryside' also:
We went dressed in 1940s style costume with an identity label and a gas mask box
We went on a trip to Defford Air base to learn all about it's impact on the second world war.
It was lots of fun, we learned so much.
