Description

Group of school children queuing for the evacuation busThese evacuees, carrying a few possessions in brown-paper parcels and bags, are moving for safety from Haverstock Hill School in Hampstead, London, to the countryside. Each child wears a ticket on their coats to identify them in the event of their being lost. In September 1938, war between France, Britain and Germany seemed likely. An agreement was reached, however, in Munich in late September by British Prime Minister (Arthur) Neville Chamberlain (1869-1940). Germany annexed the Czechoslovakian Sudetenland. War was avoided, but only for a year. Photograph taken by Roper for the Daily Herald newspaper.
