Evacuations and the National Service

Living History

Hello all :salut:

Hope you are all well.

I’m not sure if I have posted this in the right place…

I’m quite intrested in what life was like in the 40s, and I was just wondering what it was like for the evacuees?

My Nan and Granddad were both evacuated, Nan went to Wales and Granddad went to Colchester. I saldy didn’t speak to Granddad about it before he passed, and I also found out he was in the National Service and was stationed at Blandford, then went to Germany. If any has any information on the NS that would be great too! :)

I haven’t looked into that area so any general info would be appreciated. :)
