Trains and tears - Phyliss and Freda

Duration: 03:22

Over 70 years ago, Phyliss and Freda were sent away from their own homes and into the worlds of people they didn’t know.

They were evacuees during the Second World War.

What do they remember of the experience and the emotions that went with it?

Did their mothers send them away?

Did they want them to go?

They consider the choices their mothers made and what they might have done with the same choice so many years ago.
