Object description

image: A large class of girls, dressed in gymslips and plimsolls, playing out in a field in front of a camp. The wooden camp buildings stand in the background. Each girl has a ball, which she tosses in the air and catches.


'This one of the thirty-one camps which have been specially built in the country and are now housing schools from the evacuation areas. At present there are about 6,000 children in the camps. 'Evacuation' has made possible this valuable experiment in country boarding schools, and when peace comes, it is not likely that they will disappear.' (from portfolio notes, Children in Wartime).
