Old Photograph Evacuation Of Children From Dundee Scotland

Old photograph of the evacuation of children from Dundee, Scotland. After World War II was declared, it was expected that the Luftwaffe would bomb Britain and that civilian casualties might be enormous. The Department of Health in Scotland spent the early months of 1939 preparing details for the evacuation of unaccompanied children, mothers with children under school age, blind people and invalids from vulnerable areas. Areas affected were Edinburgh, Rosyth in Fife, Glasgow, Clydebank, Dundee, Inverkeithing and Queensferry, and from May 1941, after the Clydeside air raids, Greenock, Port Glasgow and Dumbarton were added.
