South Devon Railway WW2 experience.
Today 60 children from Year 4 at Woodford Primary School were evacuated from Plymouth to Totnes. The children were very brave leaving their parents but they found plenty to do in the countryside. Learning how to plant carrots and prepare an Anderson shelter. The outside toilet was a bit of a shock! Marching and fetching and carrying water and sand was also very tiring work! Trying on the helmets made the children realise how dangerous it could be as a child in the war.
The steam train was a fantastic, comfortable ride with lots of things to look out for from the windows. The children were really well behaved and thanks to all the parents for dressing them so smartly in their clothes and providing their gas masks.
