Drat those pesky ‘vacuees

During 2019 The Hill will publish a series of extracts from “Drat those pesky ‘vacuees”, a booklet written by Bob Holdeman of his memories of being evacuated to Child Okeford during the Second World War. As a prelude, a copy of a newspaper article dated August 23rd 1939 about an evacuation rehearsal will be included in January’s Hill and we show here a copy of the original newspaper cutting announcing their arrival.
