WWII evacuees

In order to keep safe from expected bombings, many children (and some mothers) were evacuated from cities and other target sites out to the comparatively safe countryside.

If you, or your relatives, were an evacuee who was sent to Wing, or perhaps you lived in Wing and hosted an evacuee, please do email me at alex@wing-ops.org.uk and let me know all the details you can remember about the evacuee, the hosts, and their experiences.

One person we'd like to find is Joan - Joan was 9 years old and came from Harlesdon in London. She lived with William and Louisa VARNEY in Albert Terrace, Littleworth, and shared a bedroom with 21-year-old Stella.
