Genome: [r4 Bd=19690902]In September 1939 tens of thousands of children left London. Each of them was labelled and carried a rectangular brown cardboard gasmask case. Those in charge knew little of the plans for housing them, let alone their destinations. The cockney sparrow was not only migrating to the countryside but in some instances was actually crossing the ocean.

How was this mass exodus organised, and what lasting effects did it have on these waifs and their parents who waved them bravely goodbye without knowing whether or when they would ever see them again?
