康沃尔疏散的80周年

本周八十年前,一组89个latymerians加上他们的弟妹和7名教师被疏散到mawnan史密斯,在康沃尔郡法尔茅斯附近的村庄,随着科学大师珀西布莱克威尔作为小组的领导。它后来被称为“最幸福的撤离”有一个避难回顾,他本以为会“死后上了天堂”,来自埃德蒙顿的战争蹂躏的街道抵达康沃尔在和平,野花摇曳车道初夏。

Latymer students and staff were billeted all over the village, some in humble farm cottages where they were expected to help with animals and on the land, and others in the splendour of country houses with wood panelled libraries & exotic gardens with lawns stretching down to the sea. The village hall was commandeered as Latymer’s schoolroom for their two years in residence but the students also learned from their new surroundings with nature study & sea bathing both popular pastimes. A unique and historic film was made by staff during their time there; this has now been digitised and made available online by Film London’s “London’s Screen 档案” project. www.londonsscreenarchives.org.uk/title/20993/ (滚动通过到4min50sec,以查看在战时mawnan采取的膜)

对于很多,经验是改变生活。几个撤离人员返回居住在该地区的成人和许多其他保留与村庄和它的人终生的联系。近几十年来,疏散显著纪念日已经庆祝聚集在他们的旧教室前撤离的群体 - 为纪念牌匾是在2000年推出了那里 - 但显然不可能有团聚在2020年,有几个现在尚存,似乎在2010年的70周年重聚将一直到最后。

上,而在另一个大型民族危机之中80年,我们仍然记得感谢避风港是mawnan史密斯的村民给latymerians所有这些几十年前。
