A warm Christmas party.

An evacuee Christmas Party 1939.
A great many evacuee children came out of London in 1939 at the outbreak of war.

Some stayed throughout the whole war, while other drifted back to the city, as their parents felt that it was safe enough to return. The group in this picture was those who stayed behind and were given a special Christmas Party of their own.

Just think that most of these children shown here are now Grand Parents in 2009.
