Evacuee Diary

  1. 1. Meet Carrie an evacuee in World War II. She is going to show you some of the letters she sent home to her family during the war.
  2. 2. My father is fighting in the war. I miss him and mummy a lot. But the people I am staying with are really nice. I write letters home all the time. Hi I'm Carrie and I am 9 years old. I have had to leave my house to go and live with some new people because mother says it’s too dangerous for me at home. Here are some of the letters that I sent home during the war.
  3. 3. <ul><li>Dear Mother, </li></ul><ul><li>How are you? The family I am staying with are so lovely, they have been very kind </li></ul><ul><li>to me. It was very exciting taking a trip on the train, I’ve never seen so many green </li></ul><ul><li>fields, it’s beautiful. The family have lots of different animals, but sometimes they </li></ul><ul><li>are a bit smelly. Have you heard from father? I miss you both, I hope the war does </li></ul><ul><li>not last long. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of love </li></ul><ul><li>Carrie xxxx </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Dear Mother, </li></ul><ul><li>Thank you for your letter, it was lovely to hear from you. I am fine thank </li></ul><ul><li>you. The little boy in the family I am staying with is quite mean and doesn’t </li></ul><ul><li>like sharing his toys with me, but Mrs Giles says he has to. Mr Giles let me </li></ul><ul><li>feed the pigs with him the other day, it was really fun, but I had to pinch my </li></ul><ul><li>nose. School is ok, it’s very small, but my teacher is nice, there are lots of </li></ul><ul><li>other children in my class like me who have left their families. How is </li></ul><ul><li>Father? Are you still working in the factory? </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of love </li></ul><ul><li> Carrie xxxx </li></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Dear Mother, </li></ul><ul><li>It’s good to hear that father is well. I really miss you both. I hope I can come home </li></ul><ul><li>soon. Thank you so much for the jumper that you sent, it was the first thing I </li></ul><ul><li>opened on Christmas morning and wore it all day long. Mr and Mrs Giles brought me </li></ul><ul><li>a drawing book and some paints, it’s really fun, me and John have been painting lots </li></ul><ul><li>of pictures. I am sending one with this letter. I miss you and father lots, please send </li></ul><ul><li>him my love. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of Love </li></ul><ul><li>Carrie xxxx </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Dear Mother, </li></ul><ul><li>Is father ok? Are they going to be sending him home, so you can take care of him? </li></ul><ul><li>I really wish I could come home or you could come here. </li></ul><ul><li>There are new children arriving at school every day, I have tried to make friends </li></ul><ul><li>with some of them as I know how lonely it can be when you first come here. I wish </li></ul><ul><li>We could all move to the country when the war is over, it’s so pretty, you would </li></ul><ul><li>love it. I have to go now Mrs Giles is calling me for dinner. Write back soon. Miss </li></ul><ul><li>you lots. </li></ul><ul><li>Lots of Love </li></ul><ul><li>Carrie xxxx </li></ul>
