WWII Evacuees
There is 1 message in this section.

Kathleen Matthews from Canada. Posted 5 Apr 2005.
I was evacuated three time during the second war along with my big sister and brother.
I can remember the big ticket on my coat..I can remember being in a town hall in Dumfries where an old maiden lady took my sister and I to her house and called us Glasgow Keelies...
I peed her bed and I cried so much that I was getting sick. Eventually my mother came and brought us all back to Glasgow. My brother had been placed on a farm where they had cut his hair with sheep shears and he was covered in lice. We were 5, 7 and 8 years old. A great memory for kids....when I told my Canadian children what happened to us during the war they cannot comprehend such treatment..it was the upmost cruelty to separate kids from their parents.
