A TIMELINE OF THE GUERNSEY EVACUATION TO ENGLAND

YOU CAN VIEW MY EDUCATIONAL TIMELINE OF THE GUERNSEY EVACUATION, OF JUNE 1940, ON THIS PAGE.

THE TIMELINE WAS LAUNCHED ON 15TH JUNE 2015 TO MARK THE COMING 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE GUERNSEY EVACUATION.

17,000 CHILDREN, TEACHERS AND MOTHERS FLED GUERNSEY TO ENGLAND, JUST DAYS BEFORE GUERNSEY WAS OCCUPIED BY GERMANY FOR FIVE YEARS.  8,000 GUERNSEY MEN JOINED THE BRITISH FORCES.

THE TIMELINE WAS CREATED FROM HUNDREDS OF INTERVIEWS I HAVE CONDUCTED WITH EVACUEES AND THEIR FAMILIES. I INCLUDE WARTIME PHOTOGRAPHS AND DOCUMENTS AND A SOUND CLIP.

THE TIMELINE WAS CREATED IN ASSOCIATION WITH HSTRY.ORG,.  YOU CAN VIEW IT HERE:
