Evacuees in the News


  • Newspapers from the period give information recorded at the time. Look at the image of a front page from the Lincolnshire Echo. What is the headline?
  • Photographs and reports from September 1939 show evacuees arriving at Lincoln. What luggage are they carrying? Why have some evacuees brought their buckets with them?
  • Evacuees wore special labels for the journey to reception areas showing details of their names, school and town they were from. Can pupils see these in the newspapers pictures?

Activity - Pupils can make their own evacuee label by using the evacuee template.
