The Geurnsey Evacuees Reunion

 Gillian Mawson is pictured talking to the Mayor and our own 1940s expert, Angela Kenrick at the Guernsey Evacuees Reunion in St. Mary church on Sun 8th Nov.

 The Evacuees gather together occasionally to share memories and catch up on old times.

Many of the memories were recorded for posterity by the BBC and stalls displayed interesting facts including the kind of items the children would have carried in their very small suit cases. 
The crowd was entertained by a George Formby act with familiar songs and jokes and everyone seemed to enjoy the day.
