If your child is taking part in a World War II Evacuee Day at school, or any dress-up occasion, this is the perfect costume. With a knitted jumper/tank top with attached shirt, bag and name tag, your son will really step into the shoes of a child being sent out of the city and away from home for safety.
Perhaps he’ll feel like William Beech being sent from London to live with Tom Oakley in the village of Little Weirwold in Michelle Magorian’s deeply moving novel Goodnight Mr Tom. Your child will re-live the experiences of these young boys and girls who stood at railway stations with labels attached to them as if they were parcels, not knowing where they were going or whether they would be split from their brothers and sisters.
They didn’t know if they would ever see their parents again and many were seeing the countryside for the first time. This costume is brilliantly authentic and will really help your child to get into character and imagine what life was like for children during World War II. Add a flat cap and your son is ready for the off.
