Evacuee Day at Rushmoor Country Park

On Monday I went to an evacuee day at Rushmoor.
We all had to dress up as if we were children in WW2.The first thing we did was write a postcard to our mums about what we were doing and how we got there,we also made a gas mask box( that we had to carry with us all day) Then we planted some seeds (thyme,carrot,parsnip and spinach) then we digged for victory (shown below).
For lunch I had a carrot and cheese sandwich.
In the afternoon we had a tour of all the animals we fed goats and baby lambs,I got to hold a 15 week old rabbit (it was tiny).We saw some baby pigs,a cow,mice,rats and a horse called Silver.
We sat in an Anderson Shelter.
At the end of the day we all got a ride on a pony called Noddy.


  1. Ohhh that sounds like a lot of fun :)

    Carrot and cheese that sounds a bit of an odd combination, what did you think of it?


  2. that sounds like a really busy day! Which as your favourite part. I think mine would have been holding the tiny rabbit :)

  5. Oh - just seen this - sorry. Sounds like an interesting day. My Mum had a Mickey Mouse gas mask box and both she and my Dad remember evacuees coming to their villages. x
