1940's Evacuee's Visit

Dunston Dossier

Independent Newsletter for Dunston, Lincolnshire


Sheila Simmons and her two sisters were evacuated to Dunston from her home in Leeds in 1939-40.

In October 2015 Shiela visited Dunston again to reunite with friends from her time in Dunston,

Aggie Tye, Phyll Sands and Shiela Redshaw.

Later, Shiela talked to pupils at St Peter's School about her life as an evacuee.


Here is a copy of her letter.
