I'd just like to thank Andrew for helping me connect with a part of my Dad's life that he was very fond of. He was from Kent and was evacuated to a village outside of Caerphilly, he always spoke of that time in his life with a lot of admiration for the people he stayed with and it was obviously a very happy time for him. My dad passed away in May this year and to see Andrew (who reminded me a lot of my Dad in character and in look as a young boy) living the evacuee's life, just as my Dad did, it was like watching my Dad as a young boy.
