During World War Two , not everyone could bear to let their children go on the evacuation. Jean Bullows was one of five children whose mum wouldn't let them be evacuated. The Government said that if children were not evacuated they had to wear an identity bracelet. So if your mum, dad or you got killed or injured in the bombing, then somebody would read your bracelet.Also if you were little and got separated from your family in an air raid, you might not know your address.
This object shows how dangerous it was in the war and how difficult it must have been for parents.
