A group of children arrive on a platform at Brent station, near Kingsbridge, Devon after being evacuated from Bristol in 1940. The train on which they have travelled can be clearly seen alongside. The children are carrying bags, suitcases, or bundles of clothing and also have their gas masks with them. The guard from the train and many of the female volunteers that helped to escort these children to Devon can also be seen.
