Far from Home

Evacuees, Dr Barnardo’s Boys and Prisoners of War in the Borderlands

by Sarah Harper

 

In the late 1930s, rising tensions in Europe and potential invasion unnerved the British Government who were responsible for protecting citizens.  As a result Operation Pied Piper evacuated thousands of children and orphaned Dr Barnardo’s children from British cities to the countryside.  The countryside also hosted Prisoners of War who were similarly far from home.

24 page booklet with photographs throughout.

This booklet was printed by the Devil’s Porridge Museum as a result of research conducted by its team.

N.B. This booklet is incorporated within the book, “The Solway Military Coast” by Sarah Harper.
