Evacuee Life on a Farm

The evacuee children found life in the countryside very different to their lives in the cities. They may have come from small houses or flats with tiny or no gardens. They were used to noise and lots of people and found the country very silent and empty. Many may have never left the city before and now they were expected to help out with work on the farm. Some loved it, some did not!
