About you

I have been interviewing Second World War evacuees since 2008, and have now interviewed almost 500. I have written one book (Guernsey Evacuees:The Forgotten Evacuees of the Second World War – History Press) and am completing another for Septembger 2014. I organised a large evacuee reunion event in Stockport in 2010.

I have formed a community group for Second World War child evacuees who came from Guernsey to northern England in 1940, and who remained here after the war. We work together to share their wartime stories with people of all ages, through events, school projects and via my online blog

I have created am Evacuee Archive for British evacuation stories and objects, and have created an online ‘Evacuee Diary’ from interviews undertaken with evacuees, which can be viewed here:
